Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Adam & Eve Tavern

It's a difficult walk uphill to get to the Adam & Eve, unless you're already at the top of the hill. Having checked into my hotel at the bottom of the hill, I arrived somewhat hot and sweaty.

I sat just opposite the bar after being served at the bar itself. But there are a number of different rooms, including a small room with a pool table at the back, where some youngsters were being a bit boisterous. Most locals seemed friendly though. The pub also has a car park, with an outdoor drinking area.

Harvest Pale & Old Speckled Hen are the regular ales. The guest beer was Landlord. I opted for the Lilley's Rhubarb Cider, which was also available on handpull. After the steep walk uphill, it was quite refreshing. I'm not sure if the CAMRA discount also applies to real cider, as I wasn't offered it. Nevertheless, a good locals' pub.

What obviously used to be a multi roomed pub has been somewhat opened out, but it still manages to retain a multi room feel. Flag floors and old beams add to the atmosphere. There's a small patio to the rear which was a real suntrap during our midweek visit and also fairly quiet. Friendly barmaid and punters along with the sunny garden meant that we stayed here for two rather than the one round that was planned. Both my pints were in good nick including the Castle Rock Harvest Pale which is still on the bar nearly 2 years since Quinno's visit, so it may be a permanent. They offer a small (5%) CAMRA discount that they were good enough to tell us about. Ms CAMRA liked the wine as well, so all in all we liked it. We'll call in again next time we're in Lincoln, especially if it's sunny. According to Whatpub it's supposed to open at midday, but it certainly wasn't open when we passed just after 12 though.

Quinno _ left this review about The Adam & Eve Tavern

A little off the beaten track, this is obviously an aged building but it promises more on the outside than the inside delivers, it has been modernized somewhat, though it retains some low beams and discrete areas. Stood in the main bar with everyone watching the footy. Five ales on, Castle Rock Harvest Pale (quite green, unimpressive), Black Sheep Blitzen, GK Fireside and Speckled and Rockin Rudolf. Neither Desmond or I got much out of this one and we pushed off without too much prompting. 5.5

Old Boots left this review about The Adam & Eve Tavern

An ancient inn, opened out and redecorated in modern style but still retaining many smaller spaces. There's four pulls, on this occasion with London Pride, Old Speckled Hen, Harvest Pale and one from Oldershaw, it also had Camden Pale and eight varieties of national kegs.

Soup Dragon left this review about The Adam & Eve Inn

A detached 17th century building in whitewashed stone, with several extentions. There is a patio to the side. It is said to have been a pub since 1701 and the central core of the building seems to be a straight farmhouse type of build, with several chimney stacks and with a steep pitched roof. Looks nice.

The interior has a front room which is in red and cream walls, with some wood panel, a white ceiling with moulded cornice and a blue carpet. There is a large stone fireplace feature and a TV, which wasn't on. This room is nicer for dining. We didn't eat here so i can't comment on that, but the menu is very reasonable. The main room is in the same decor, but with a tile floor and a white and beam ceiling. It too has a nice stone fireplace. There are little areas off to the side that have brick fireplaces and one has a dart board, another a pool table. Prints and drawings are on the walls for interest, as well as a few TVs, one showing the royal festivities. The music was general and quite quiet. The service was fine and the place busy with a good mixed clietele.

Beer; usual tap stuff with Sharpe's Doombar, Abbot Ale and Adnams Diamond Ale, which was decent.

This is a nice traditional pub, with the pub games and real ales. I would definitely pop in again for one.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Adam & Eve Inn

One of the oldest pubs in Lincoln dating back to 1701. This is a large comfortable and friendly pub and the staff on the day we visited were most welcoming. There were four ales on handpump, I went for the Everards Beacon and found it a very well kept beer. The pub had a rural inn feel about it, which I liked and was very traditional in decor. They also have a good food menu and was not over priced. Will call again.
