user reviews of The Adam and Eve Tavern, Lincoln

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Corporate feel (i.e. no character) in a pub that should have loads - ale, Harvest Pale was duff too. Not sure how this is in the GBG.

After leaving the Morning Star I headed down the hill to this place arriving @ 12.20pm. Also GBG 2017 listed.
The last poster gives a good description of the place. Some quite loud piped music was playing. In a side room a TV was showing some footy.
They have 4 hand pulls for Old Speckled Hen, Charnwoods Hubble Bubble, TT Landlord and Castle Rock Harvest Pale.
I had a pint of the later which was so nice I had another @ £3.30 a pint.

Large pub on the hill on the main road leading North out of town, close to the Cathedral. It advertises itself as Lincoln's oldest pub but this isn't really reflected on the inside, with two large areas in an L-shaped around the bar. pleasant enough but unremarkable, and not escaping the inevitable chainy feeling. A pool room is also found at the back, which has an original fireplace which is sadly out of use.
The beers available were Black Sheep, Landlord and Exmoor Gold, tried them all and all were in good condition, and although it's not the most exciting choice in Lincoln, it's perfectly acceptable.
There are more traditional pubs and pubs with better beer choices in Lincoln, but I did warm to this place, enjoyed the atmosphere here and would gladly return.

A great pub. It still hasn't quite found it's identity but is pushing the real ales and has recently got its Cask Marque. Simple pub fare presented nicely and very helpful bar staff. Come here on a hot day and make use of the garden or a cold night round the fires.

Very nice local boozer, very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and bar staff. The beer is excellent and the place is always kept clean. An excellent pub to watch all football matches in as there is always a good crowd and atsmoshpere ant they have two large screens. what more can i say a pub well worth visiting!!!!!!

The atmosphere in this pub is unlike any other; often, people come here by themselves, knowing that they will bump into someone they know, and can chat to.
The staff are first-rate, and the food is good value, good quality but not too fancy, the owners know that this is a 'pub' pub more than a 'food' pub, and I have on good authority that their real ales are exceptional!
Since the current landlords (and lady) have taken over, the pub has got better and better, and I think you are mad if you don't stop in for a drink, play pool, watch the footy, or even the Queen extravaganza, which is happening on august bank holiday (sunday), with 3 bands including 'Monarchy', a BBQ, and outside bar. I've got my ticket, it's only a fiver, but with proceeds going to the Lincoln air ambulance, you can't argue with that.
Everyone is welcome at the Adam and Eve, but I warn you, once you come here, you'll keep coming back (as I have found!)

Very nice looking old pub from outside but was more of a nightclub within.

Real ale was surprisingly good and the staff were excellent. Just not my kind of place really..

more of an investment than a pub

Believed to be the oldest pub in this historic city, it lies south-east of the Cathedral at the top of Lindum Road. Extensive beer garden to rear along with what were presumably stables. Warm atmosphere. Wouldn't argue greatly about the 8 someone else has given it, but it all depends on taste. If you have a love of really old inns, you won't beat this one in the city. The Adam & Eve fought off an attempt to close it down and use it for an extension to the Cathedral School a year or so ago. Sacrilege!
