Browns Pie Shop

Browns prides itself on the quality and consistency of its food. We go to great lengths to source and use only the most local ingredients available because we believe it reflects in the taste. Our menu has been carefully designed with a 'something for everyone' policy and while there are dishes which appeal to those seeking out fine dining, many traditional favourites remain. Browns caters for children and welcomes family dining and, due to everything being made on site by us, it can manage advanced dietary needs; meaning those who ordinarily struggle to eat-out find a welcome with us.



The Restaurant

Situated at the top of picturesque Steep Hill, between Lincoln Castle & the magnificent Cathedral, Browns has been part of eating-out in Lincoln for 35 years. We are immensely proud of the reputation we have built in that time. Dining with us you can expect, service that is relaxed, friendly and efficient with a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. The food itself, is lovingly prepared and presented, fantastic quality and reasonably priced. It's accompanied by a carefully curated drinks menu featuring hand-picked wines to compliment the food, locally brewed Ales & Cider and a range of soft drinks & spirits. All brought to you in our warm and inviting dining space, parts of which date back to the late 1700's. If it's a really great 'dining experience' you're looking for then Browns will not disappoint.
