Sorry another pub they have destroyed tarting it up the old saying if its not broken dont try and mend it.
It looks ok if its your first visit but if you have called regular when you visit Lincoln you will know what in mean.
Will only call when its sunny to sit outside

A very attractive looking pub this one, but to my disappointment it had a very clinical approach although it was trying to better or keep up with the boring chain outlets further along. Even the choice of ales was non-descript.

A pleasant enough pub on the quayside alongside many mass market chain restaurants, such as Nando’s, Ask, Prezzo, etc. The building seems to be made up of two halves, the end part being an old stone built traditional affair, joined on to a more modern looking brick built building with the top half covered in wood cladding. They’ve made an effort to brighten it up with a few hanging baskets, window boxes and such like.

Inside it’s not unpleasant by any means, but has a little bit of a bland, identikit feel to it. Much of the walls are clad in white painted woodwork, covered with several old pictures. There are some dark wood strips of wood on the ceiling that seem to be more decorative than structural. The flooring in the front bar is tiles, with carpet elsewhere and some wood stripwork around the bar. There’s a decent looking brick built fireplace at the front, but that’s probably the only feature of any interest.

Food is apparently offered all day, although I didn’t inspect the menu, and there was a very 1970’s style vertical desert cabinet from which you were invited to select your dish. The best feature of the pub is the outside table and chairs alongside the river. Whilst not especially picturesque, it’s nonetheless a pleasant spot to sit and sup your beer.

Beers on tap are still Ruddles Best and Directors, so these are presumably unchanging. Ciders were Bulmers and Strongbow.
