The Pyewipe is a family run business opened in 1998 by Robert and Sara Pickles. Situated only a 20 to 30 minute walk away from Lincoln city centre, a leisurely stroll along Britain’s oldest man made waterway which is has surely become a hidden gem in Lincolnshire.

Popular as a ramblers’ favourite watering hole, narrowboat mooring point or restaurant for the discerning diner, The Pyewipe is all things to all folk. The perfect setting for a casual lunch with the family and friends or an outside drink! The addition of the Lodge in 2001 and the Big Hat Tipis in 2016 allows us to be an idyllic location for weddings, corporate events or business conferences. Please feel free to peruse our website, however only a visit can truly bring our legendary location, cuisine and hospitality to life.

    Waitress on arrival very “whatever” about our reservation, asked for a quiet table as a party of about 30 people were seated straight through the centre of the restaurant, told we could sit in the bar but wouldn’t be table service, agreed to try and stay in the restaurant where we had to wait for a chair to be found for our table. Understand that it was a birthday celebration with the other guests but much too loud for other private diners and we were also trying to have a celebration, Didn’t even make it to pre-dinner drinks as had to leave due to noise. Staff were advised that “thank you but much to noisy for dining”, Not really bothered or try to accommodate so went and found somewhere else. 5 minutes after leaving was sent a text hoping we had had a enjoyable visit. Have been here many times over the years but will now start finding alternates

    Food was ‘nice’ but not wonderful. Slightly bland in taste - the young kids working there tried their best - seemed no-one over 19 working there… no lighting for car park after dark…

    First choice of roast beef was off the menu so opted for haddock. The fish was beautifully fried and crispy batter. Most enjoyable and filling.

    Walked from Burton Waters for Sunday Lunch on a warm day. We found the restaurant decor excellent, staff attentive and friendly although busy. The food was served promptly and an excellent meal. Would highly recommend!! To say it was a busy day the menu was extensive with plenty of choice, we chose the traditional Roast Beef Sunday roast and was not disappointed, absolutely tasty! One thing we did (4) notice all the staff seemed calm, not rushed, in routine, pleasant and efficient. Everything was served in a timely manner and we much appreciated the quickly served cold drinks after a rather hot walk along the canal bank. We will definitely be going back. Well done all.

    The Pyewipe is our go to 0lace for a relaxed lunch especially in the Summer months due to it's Riverside location. Lots of outdoor seating which requires no booking but to secure a table at the time you want, you need to book in the restaurant. The staff are attentive and friendly and on the whole the food is good value for money and very tasty. I was a little disappointed in the beef stroganoff though as I only had 3 pieces of meat and the rest was mushroom - but still very tasty nonetheless. I would still recommend a visit if you are in the area.

    Food & location was fantastic, we had a wonderful evening. But the service was even better, from the second we arrived to the personalised note at the top of our bill, we could not have been more impressed.

    Lovely place with plenty of free parking. The staff most friendly and helpful. Food was very good and the dessert are yummy (Eton Mess) Beautiful surroundings had a nice stroll along canal to help justify the dessert!!! Highly recommend. Wish I could remember the name of our server, a lovely young girl who was always smiling 😊

    Good food and service. A bit hard to find the turning to the pyewipe and sign is at the turning so unless you know where the turning is it is easy to miss. Pleasant views of the canal makes outside nice in the warm weather.

    Waiting/bar staff excellent. Food excellent as always but significant delay between starters and mains (which waiting staff apologised for). BUT could hear lots of shouting in the kitchen which went on for 15minutes plus. People emerging looking upset. bar staff dealt with incredibly as so obvious it was happening they had to acknowledge it. Sounded like bullying by someone.

    We booked a table for 6:15, ordered by 6:30 and it took 45 mins for starters to arrive. We had to ask if we’d been forgotten about. But to be fair the lovely waitresses were very apologetic and didn’t charge us for our starters. Food was nice, and the waitresses were very friendly and welcoming. I would go again next time I’m in Lincoln.

    Our party of six all enjoyed our first visit to the Pyewipe. The food was very nice, although the difference in portion sizes of different dishes was noticeable. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. We did not have to wait too long for the food to reach the table although, to be fair, we were the only party in the dining room! We will definitely be back.

    Cheese soufflé starter was very dense. The mushroom starter with soy sauce on bruschetta was very very salty. The duck Breast main was nice but it came with dauphinois potatoes which was very dry. Belly pork main was nice. Was recommended by a friend to come here and sadly won’t back.

    It was my Birthday and my husband took me out for lunch. We arrived early and thought we would have a drink prior to sitting in the restaurant. My husband was waiting ages to be served which wasn’t a particularly good start. We went into the restaurant at 2:30 and was presented with a menu the menu board was elsewhere but wasn’t brought for us to see. And so it continued nobody particularly attentive either. My husband was disappointed with his roast beef it was absolutely swimming in gravy it looked dreadful. I had two starters (0ne as main meal) which were ok. Nobody asked if we wanted more drinks. Basically it was hard work xx

    Roast Sunday lunch was good, apart from too many potatoes, both mashed and roast and the roasts were probably frozen variety! Pudding very good My filter coffee returned, it was cold, when it reappeared it was just warm. Afraid I gave up and left it.

    Overall a good visit. Food as usual was excellent. Meals arrived promptly and were hot and plentiful. We expected delays as it was Father’s Day but service was quick. It was very busy so noise levels were quite high. Would recommend for everyone but don’t choose a sunday if you are hoping for a quite meal.
