    Good food was enjoyed by a large group of family members meeting up for a special occasion Some people arrived in dribs and drabs but the hotel staff accommodated everyone with good cheer. The food was substantial and of a very good quality. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our thanks to the friendly obliging staff.

    Everything was good but my only criticism is as follows.....I saw three different meals come to our table; I had the roast of the day as the restaurant had mint sauce for the roast lamb. ALL of the meals were light on in vegetables.....I had ONE roast potato, two pieces of broccoli & two pieces of carrot. I know that prices of fresh produce have increased recently, but I'd rather see a slight price increase if that is what is required to not skimp on the veggies.

    As 2 of us are vegetarian, there was disappointment when the mushroom ravioli wasn't available, and to be honest, if vegetarian lasagne is on the menu, most customers would prefer a Napoli sauce instead of a bechamel sauce. Thanks

    Have driven past this pub many times. Went in for a family dinner, we're all older so no kids, wondering how the place would be. Pleasantly surprised by the ambience, the quick attention and helpful staff. Service was good, food was really nice but would have given more points if the selection of veggies served was added to. For me, zucchini & mashed pumpkin was light on, or perhaps less chips and another spoon of greens? Overall, everyone enjoyed their food and the experience.

    First time here. Great to have parking available. Food was good just a bit dark could do with a bit of a refresher. Otherwise all good.

    My family love the Linc. Excellent food and service. Staff are very personable . Warm and outgoing. Food was delivered promptly and there were plenty of choices counting both the menu and the specials. Noise can be an issue late in the week, but we were there on a Monday and noise level was moderate,
