“Best pub in Lincoln”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Excellent atmosphere, the people are friendly and the beer is top class. if you are a fan of stout/porter you won't get nicer in Lincoln that the Struggs. Landlady Anna is refreshingly no nonsense and the staff are very pleasant. Brill!!!

“Proper friendly old style pub”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Visited early Friday evening and was packed but in a good way. Managed to find a small table and had a pint of Timothy Taylor - smashing pint. Also wusses had glass of Pino and ginger ale - both good. Bar staff very helpful. Locals incredibly friendly - met a lovely chocolate lab called Dexter and his owner. We were made to feel very welcome even though we nicked one of the few tables. Great selection of beers. Believe there's a garden - we didn't try as was bitterly cold outside. Will definitely go back. Great proper pub atmosphere - magic. Close to castle and Cathedral if you are up for a bit of sightseeing.

Reviewed 30 January 2014

If you like real ale and open fires. Or if you like an old fashioned honest pub, but don't like kids running around, fruit machines, piped music or TV, then this your pub.

It also has an excellent family garden for summer.

“A PROPER PUB...STRUGGLED TO LEAVE”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Great pub.....spent an evening here whilst in Lincoln for the weekend....slightly uninviting from the outside, the inside more than made up for things. Busy pub with minimal space, the locals were very friendly and the pub had a great selection of real ales....even though we were 'outsiders' we were made welcome by all and had a great evening in the Snug. Great little pub.

“No struggle recommending this place”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

A great name for a pub - and a great place to visit.
It's exactly the sort of pub I try and find in whatever town or city I'm visiting.
And since I went to the Strugglers Inn based entirely on the warm recommendations of other TripAdvisor members, I thought it was only fair to record my own hearty endorsement.
This is a small, friendly, neighbourhood pub where the emphasis is very much on beer and chatter; which is what pubs used to be like - and the best ones still are.
Definitely worth checking out.
