Wig & Mitre


0.5 miles
30-32 Steep Hill, Lincoln, LN2 1LU
Opened in 1977 by a husband-and-wife team, this warm and inviting restaurant has become one of the highlights of Lincoln's Steep Hill. A deceptively large building, the exposed brick interiors and vaulted ceilings hark back to a bygone age, but the modern finesse of the wide menu brings you right back into the 21st Century.

There is a fine selection of home-cooked cuisine, both on the main menu and on the daily specials board, including traditional favourites and exciting original dishes. Even the classics are given a Wig & Mitre twist, ensuring they are a cut above - for example, my tender fi llet steak main course came with French fries topped with a grating of full-bodied Parmesan, al dente green beans, mushroom and truffle mayonnaise. Before this, we had tucked into sun-dried tomato, olive and goat's cheese paté with toast, and rich pan-fried chicken liver with grape and brandy cream sauce from the specials board. For the main event, my companion relished the Mediterranean vegetable pancake baked in a herby tomato sauce - a standout vegetarian option. To finish, we treated ourselves to a heavenly dark chocolate and fudge creme brulée with shortbread from the specials board, and moreish white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sorbet from the main menu.

Not only is the Wig & Mitre a hit with foodies, but with oenophiles too - the Wig & Mitre Shop next door stocks all manner of fine, interesting and well-priced wines from around the world
