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.
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

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.
