Review on Wig and Mitre
Since 1977, the Hope family has been pleasing the crowds in their fourteenth-century building between Lincoln castle and the cathedral. Their flexible attitude is infectiously refreshing, and informality is one of the keys to their success.
If you are looking for a full meal, ask for the main menu. This features a tempting assortment of modern-sounding dishes (bolstered by blackboard specials), each with a suggested wine recommendation. Among the list of starters, you might see salmon rillette with celeriac rémoulade or oxtail, potato and chorizo terrine with pickled wild mushrooms: you can even indulge in a pot of Sevruga caviar if you're feeling flush. Move on to roast duck breast with bubble 'n' squeak and five-spiced plum jus or grilled salmon with couscous and coriander crème fraîche, before pear custard tart with bitter chocolate sorbet.
When it comes to thirst quenching, the Wig & Mitre stocks a decent choice of real ales, bottled beers from around the world and a well-spread selection of keenly chosen wines ranging from heavyweight French classics to everyday gluggers by the glass.
