Once again I agree with Victor, went to this pub once back in July 03 when I was moving into the area from student halls. Terrible service and threatening environment, the look on the barmaid's face when we asked for a 4 pint pitcher of Fosters that was ADVERTISED NEXT TO HER was no short of confused. The pool table is all this place has got going for it.

Oh dear. Well, what's it got going for it? It does have the only pool table in the immediate area, a jukebox and a TV projection system for big sporting events. But apart from that, it strikes one as a sawdust joint that can't afford the sawdust. Service is also poor at best.
Managed, as distinct from Free House, and it shows.
This pub has a real problem with location, tucked away in side streets in Lincoln's West End. What's more, it has to compete with the Vine and, above all, the CAMRA-rated Queen in the West just a few hundred yards away. Get the impression that its owners have forgotten it exists.
What could they do with it if they found it? Well, an excellent and successful off-licence, known as Small Beers, closed recently just a few yards to the north of it, and gave way to student accommodation for the new Lincoln University, leaving the area without a decent off-licence. If I had the Carholme, I'd split it into an off-licence on the one hand and, on the other, provide a really good wine bar, which the area doesn't have and which would mean the hopeless battle against the likes of the Queen would be over.
As it is, I'm going to give it 3, though I think I'm being over-generous. I suppose if you're addicted to pool and you can't walk the 800 yards or so to the city centre, you're stuck with it. It'd drive me to tea totalism!
