Intimate dinner

Top grub and classy surroundings collide at Tito’s Grill and Restaurant . This local favourite is known for serving up juicy steaks cooked just how you like them, as well as the freshest of the fresh seafood. Get stuck into a tuna steak with a healthy dollop of sweet chilli sauce on the side. Or go for the lip-smacking fillet steak and prepare to be bowled over. 

Light lunch

Go big on bunting and baking nostalgia with a shabby-chic afternoon tea.The cakes, butties and brews on offer at Bunty’s Tea Room are well worth the yomp up Steep Hill. Colourful bunting, vintage china and big-band music all help to set the scene. Pass the clotted cream


Crispy prawn toast, piles of steaming noodles and sticky, spicy meat. Chinese food is mostly amazing. Even more so at The Phoenix, which locals have loved for decades. Why? Try the beef satay – which is delivered sizzling to your table. All kinds of yum

Street food

You have to go a fair way to find a farmers’ market scene that outshines Lincoln’s. The High Street collective meet at the foot of Steep Hill (phew!) on the second Wednesday of each month; the City Square event meets on the first Friday, and Castle Hill the third Saturday – so you’re rarely without a fix.
