Very good service! This is my second time here and it never disappoints me. The food (a three course lunch meal), the price and the service from the Patron Chef Victor were among the best one can get. The interior decor is so homely it enhances the dining experience. Victor personally served us our orders and made sure we were... More

Very personal and friendly service from Chef and owner, Victor. Excellent presentation of piping hot food. The banana fritter was very fresh and delicious. Vegetables were cooked to perfection and sauces for pork medallions was delicious. The decor of this restaurant is like stepping back in time which is really part of the charm and ambience of this quaint dining... More

A time warp ,dusty.grubby and the steaks reflect the length of time the chef has been there - being put on the grill in 1991!!! My ribeye was not a ribeye and was inedible. Do not cross the threshold.

I go here a couple of times a month. That is a place of a fantastic food quality you don't find nowadays much. Silver service is rare these days. I had a wonderful fish today!

We decided to return to this quirky little bistro restaurant today after a trip out to Lincoln. My husband and I had the place to ourselves which was a bonus as we felt we had our own personal chef Victor to ourselves. We had a vast choice off three menus, which finally decided on the 3 course meal for 8.95... More

If you decide to dine here, don't expect anything remotely 21st century, but DO expect delicious food, excellent traditional service, a very good wine selection and surprising value for money. We'll definitely be back... tomorrow maybe! 😁

You can easily walk past this place but it is worth the stop. The restaurant is a steakhouse and oh yes it is fantastic. We had a three course meal, which was lovely and very good value for money.

Crust is a little one man restaurant at the bottom of Steepe Hill and is easy to miss.A 3 course lunch menu is about £8 and value for money.I have been on every visit to Lincoln and have never been disappointed.Dont expect the Ritz decor it's all about value for money.
