What an amazing shop. When in for lunch and glad we got there just in time as no sooner as we sat down the other tables filled up and a dozen others queued for a place. The food was a treat with local Lincs produced used in many of the dishes. Lots of traditional fayre with twists and presentation of great quality. The staff were great offering advice on their favourite puddings and making us feel completely at home. A visit is a must.

Leeds, West Yorkshire
It's difficult to categorise this place as it's not just a coffee shop, it's a cafe/restaurant and mostly it's a cheese shop with delicious, mouth watering cheesy specimens to ponder over and try before you buy. I tried some of the Woolsery goat's cheese on the shop lady's recommendation and was a complete convert.
The cafe area is nice enough - they've not spent a fortune on the tables and chairs, like, but it's clean and modern and comfortable. The menu is varied and reasonably priced - soup of the day is about £4, but it's homemade and super tasty. Or should that be soup-er tasty. My mum had some when we came and I forget what flavour it was but it was so nice she asked for the recipe. I went for the steak and chips for £9 (I think it's my own personal rule that if steak is on the menu, Lucy has to eat it). It was delicious. Omnom. The rest of the menu is cheese orientated - ploughman's, focaccias with goats cheese, baked camembert and the like.
Well worth a visit if you're in Lincoln. It's just at the bottom of Steep Hill, up near the Pizza Express but off the main pedestrian bit.

Best cheese shop ever. We got there 10min before they closed and after they had put the cheeses away but they were so helpful giving us advice and getting out all the cheeses we wanted to try. Bought&tasted the best cheeses we had ever had!

This is a mediecore little cafe and neither a bistro nor a restaurant. I ate here many times before they banned children. What a mean, discriminating little set-up.
The food is ok and I used to like eating there for the cheese focus. It's not the best though and I've had better cheese dishes in many non-cheese restaurants. The fondue, for example, lacks the richness and kick that one would expect in a good Swiss restaurant. There are much better cafes, bistros and restaurants in Lincoln however, all of which welcome children.
My daughter (now 8) has eaten at Locanda Locatelli, Pierre Koffman's & Richard Corrigan's Bentleys (Oyster Bar) (amongst others in London and Paris) and has always been welcomed.
It is really important that people and organisations in the UK get the message that it is perverse to discriminate against children (and women and parents) and this discrimination is a destructive force in our society.

Dreadful place - about 2 years or so ago they put a notice up on the door banning children under 10. This is a day time cafe that closes at 4pm! I think the owner must either hate children or be so greedy that he/she wants to make sure that every seat is taken by a customer that is likely to spend optimum amount of money (rather than a seat taken by a child). This discriminatory practice shouldn't be allowed in this day and age and I hope this cafe is forced to revoke this outrageous ban.
