Nicely modernised place serving thoughtfully prepared food and with a chatty atmosphere

If you want to enjoy the rewarding food here, it's very sensible to book a table in advance ? but for a chat and a pint, simply head for the locals' bar. This is informal and pubby with a log fire, and caring staff who serve Sharps Doom Bar and guests such as Greene King Old Hoppy Hen, Pheasantry Pale Ale and Springhead Outlawed on handpump, 11 wines by the glass, 18 malt whiskies, 35 gins and home-made cordials; several tables may also be occupied by those enjoying the tasty food. The beamed and timbered dining room is spread over two floors, with lots of exposed brickwork, local prints and a warm winter fire. The lounge between these rooms has leather sofas and background music, and a bar counter where you can buy home-made jams, marmalade and chutney. There are attractive views across the village green. Dogs are allowed in the bar outside of food service times.

We were recommended to eat here by a guest house. Unfortunately we went on 24th June and found the meal to be very mediocre. The chunky chips tasted like they had used pre boiled potatoes from earlier in the day and flash fried - very unpleasant taint. The steak was wafer thin and overcooked and the service truly appaling. Needless to say we didn't have a sweet or stay for coffee as I didn't think the pub had earned the extra business. I wouldn't return or recommend and have advised the guest house accordingly.

We went to the Inn on the Green on November 24th 2009 for a family meal after our wedding. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and the choice of menu items impressive. The food was excellent, and the service without fault. We will be happy to dine there in the future. Kate and Bill

This might sound mean as the owners and staff are working very hard but we think this pub deserves a lucky dip not a full entry. It is a nice place lovely Black Sheep beer , Chilean merlot a bit 'rough' however. The service is good and the food is ok but we don't think its anything special. WE ate at the pub twice. first time I had a mackerel salad (pickled) which was a large portion and very good. My wife had the braised shoulder of lamb ( not on the bone) - I had the beef pie which was good but the gravy was a bit too floury for me. The vegetables were good new potatoes, carrots rattitui and cauliflower cheese ( where was the cheese..) Second time my wife had the gammon and chips the gammon was a big tough. I had fish and chips which was ok but the batter was not s nice as the Dambusters pub in Scampton.. So its a nice pub but we don't think it deserves main entry. MY 2013 guide is downstairs I'll be interested to see if it held onto its main entry..

Visited here last Thursday with friends and i have to say wasnt expecting it to be so busy being mid-week. Was recommended to come here and was not disappointed, from start to finish it was a lovely evening, staff where friendly and very helpfull and the food was outstanding. Will definately be back soon! Well Done, you totally deserve your entry!

First off Id like to give a pat on the back to the chef. It is by far the best meal Iv had in lincoln. I eat out a lot in London with work and the food I ate at the Inn on the Green was well up to the standard of the mitchelin star restaurants I have eaten at. The food is so well thought out. It's imaginative and the way they plate up the food is like artwork. The restaurant is quaint and traditional. The staff seem to be well trained and enthusiastic about what they do. My only criticism is I don't live in the village to eat there every night. I can't wait till my next visit to lincoln to see what amazing menu they have come up with. Bravo inn on the green you are 10/10 to a foody like me.

Highly recommend. Great food, great service a real hidden gem. I've eaten here several times and had everything from a quick bite on a Saturday afternoon to a 3 course everning meal all equally as good. the chef serves up high quality food presented in a way that any high restaurant would. looking forward to sharing this great pub with family over easter. Definitely a returning customer.

Ate here (table of 4) on the 11 April 2015. The food was amazing the staff were warm and friendly. We have been here several times and the quality of the food is always high. I have a gluten allergy and the staff have good knowledge of this. They are always willing to go the extra mile, and will always offer alternatives so i feel well catered for. This is a lovely place to eat and i would recommend it to anyone.

Look can be deceiving. Ordinary outside, but a cosy and friendly pub inside. Good beer, looks like excellent food but we did not taste. There was no table available. Next time you better book if you want to get anywhere near the food.

Wow wow wow probably one of the best meals Iv ever eaten

Me and my partner came here on Saturday 9th May. We both chose from the Fine dinning menu and what a good choice that was. Amazing does not do this food justice. The chef here are extremely talented. I would quite happily say that this is the best restaurant we have eaten at in Lincoln. The duck was cooked to perfection and the feta dessert was a stroke of genius. Well done guys.
