The Wig & Mitre is a traditional English pub situated in the heart of historic Lincoln, in the Cathedral Quarter on an aptly named Steep Hill. Our wonderful old building with it’s white frontage is instantly recognisable and as you step inside you feel at home which is how we want you to feel. Decorated with neutral tones and splashes of green and red gives the Wig & Mitre that regal feel yet a place you will want to be! Our downstairs bar features a fireplace, framed newspaper clippings that adorn the walls and a buzzy atmosphere that makes us so popular. Our main restaurant is perfect for everyone from couples to groups or should you wish a cosier dining experience then we can accommodate you in our upstairs dining area that faces onto Steep Hill.
The Wig & Mitre’s chefs work hard to bring the freshest ingredients and seasonal fare to the table. The blackboards inside show some of the best seasonal and local selection of food Lincolnshire has to offer.
Food is served throughout the day, from morning breakfasts, lunchtime sandwiches as well as our blackboard specials including our set menu and main menu. Our menus are ambitious yet affordable with a good range of starters, mains and desserts uniquely created by our talented chefs.
Our range is varied from Modern European to traditional gastro pub food. We always use fresh ingredients on site, these are sourced locally by tried and tested suppliers. Our menus also contain a wide variety of gluten-free and vegetarian choices.
Our children’s menu offers a nutritious range of dishes at very fair prices making the Wig & Mitre extremely welcoming to families.
We hold an excellent stock of wines from around the world, local ales, and ales from our own micro-brewery, continental beers and lagers and a selection of spirits and mixers. Speciality coffees and teas are also available.
We regularly hold Gourmet Evenings, Wine Tasting, Supper Evenings and Champagne “Bubbly Tasting” Nights. To keep up to date with our forthcoming events please see our NEW DIARY OF EVENTS on the right of the page.
Afternoon Tea at The Wig & Mitre
Forget tea at the Ritz or Betty’s and think about Afternoon Tea at The Wig & Mitre instead. This most quintessential of English customs was introduced by the Duchess of Bedford and has remained popular ever since and still enjoyed by all. There is nothing better than to indulge in afternoon tea with those delicate sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, traditional cakes and a decent cup of tea. Our afternoon tea offers all these things (and more) there is something for everyone whether your afternoon tea is with Selected Blended Tea, Pimms, Prosecco or Champagne.
Served from 10am – 6pm every day with varying prices to suit everyone. We would ask that you pre-book one day in advance; this ensures the freshest of ingredients.
