During the day, take a stroll through the Castle to the West Gates. The Lawns was once an asylum but now houses a fabulous coffee shop with a good brunch menu (and lunch). Coffee is from local roasters Stokes, a Lincoln family business. There is also Ole Ole Tapas Restaurant here. Vibrant, great menu and friendly staff. Sangria a must have. The Blue Room is a relatively new concept bringing more independent arts and music to Lincoln. Situated upstairs at The Lawns, makes this a one stop destination. Find them all on Facebook to check details and listings.

Oh my. Fantastic location right on Castle Square, this quirky traditionally styled spanish restaurant is a delicious food delight. If you like tapas. Book ahead as it is small on different levels (steep stairs so request downstairs if you struggle. oh and no air conditioning the last time I visited in our long hot summer...it was too much on the top floor) I would go here any time. Lunch or dinner. There are tables outside if it's a nice day. Perfect for people watching.

Redhill started at the Lincoln Farmers Market in Castle Square and now have the most delicious looking butchers in Lincoln. It's not cheap but is top quality and will also do take out coffees and snacks if you're on the go. Worth a browse for any locally produced extras like Lincolnshire Plum Bread and chutneys.

Drinks & Nightlife
A real ale traditional pub with a mixture of locals. Friendly and welcoming. Real fire and no fuss makes for a quiet drink. They serve food (but i've not eaten there) and have quiz and music nights and BBQ's on summer days but you'd need to check their blackboard outside for details. Only 100m from The Little House.

An easy menu which isn't expensive. Grab an early table to get the evening started. Or just go in for drinks, with a good cocktail menu. It has live music and Dj's at the weekends and a mixed crowd changes as the night draws on. Relaxed, cool, hip and a good place to people watch. Of any age. Open Thursday - Sunday 12pm - late. *Vegetarian options which we've tasted and liked!

The interiors, staff, music and drinks menu are 5 star. Open until 2am (I think!) you can find a mixed crowd with unusual ales and craft beers, cocktails to die for or a great selection of Gins. Grab a quieter time of day to get a table or take a trip down Steep Hill (it's at the bottom) during the more vibrant times at night. Great DJ playing music (no dance floor). It's a place to hang out at night but don't be intimidated if you are visiting it during the afternoon or early evening. A friendly relaxed bar.
