Henry’s tea room
287 High St, Lincoln LN2 1AW
A short review by the Three Munchketeers of Henry’s tea room in Lincoln.
Ben: When we arrived at Henry’s tea room we managed to snag a window seat. The place was quite empty but the staff were prompt and friendly. I went for the sausage ciabatta (so I could compare with Makushi). It was tasty and the chutney complemented it perfectly. The portions are a good size but I think a touch expensive.
Mike: This place is a bit of a hidden secret as many people don’t realise it exists! But for those in the know, this is a real taste of tradition, with an authentic Victorian feel about it, harking back to the early days of the Ruddocks enterprise. The café is charming and simple and the selection of food is good, while the quality of food is fantastic and the portions are large, which probably explains the slightly higher price tag. My tomato soup from the specials board was sublime! A pleasant surprise awaits for those who haven’t yet discovered Henry’s tea room.
Mole: I like Henry’s. Its quaint and traditional, something a bit different. From the original features to the attire worn by the friendly and attentive staff, it’s like going back dining in victorian England. The food selection is broad enough and very good quality. It’s more than just your average coffee shop sandwich selection, these range from proper cooked meals to afternoon tea. The choice of drinks was good too, to compliment the usual teas and coffees there is nice range of local and craft beers, wines and even an alcoholic ice tea! All this does come at a slightly higher price tag, but I think its worth it. I’d certainly recommend.
