Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

A trip to the Lion & Snake is a good time for all. One of the oldest trading pubs in Lincoln, we’re also one of the most popular; and for good reason too. Everyone is welcome at the Lion & Snake, so it’s time to organise that leisurely lunch you’ve been talking about or finally get the gang together for dinner. With a food menu that boasts all the best pub grub and more, we’re sure everyone will find something that’ll tickle their taste buds. Our burgers are the best, we have fantastic grill options, exciting curries and so much more to choose from. Order your favourite and kick back in front of one of our large TVs showcasing the latest sports, or find a spot outside and dine alfresco. With the largest beer garden in the Bails, and fantastic views of the Cathedral, it’s the perfect spot to sit back and relax in.

If you thought our food menu was big, wait till you see our drinks menu. We have the perfect drink for every occasion. Our menu ranges from beers to cocktails and everything in between. Make a night of it and join us for our entertainment evenings, they’re always a laugh. Whatever the reason for your visit, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Safety is our Priority

Caring for our People Makes Sense

  • Looking after our teams means they can look after you.
  • This starts with providing our already fantastic teams with additional training to follow safe COVID-19 working procedures and regulations.
  • Each day team members will complete a health screening questionnaire to confirm they are in good health prior to beginning work.
  • We ask that you do your bit and respect our teams and any requests they have. It’s all with your safety in mind.


Keeping Social, whilst Social Distancing Makes Sense

Look out for additional signage in pub to establish safe, social distancing

This might include:

  • Highlighting where and how you order at the bar 
  • Removing some tables to ensure comfortable social distancing can be maintained
  • Managing capacity, meaning you may be asked to queue outside


Caring for you, your friends and family Makes Sense

  • Hand sanitiser is available to use at every entrance for your peace of mind.
  • Once inside we’re taking as many steps as possible to reduce contact 
  • Our menus will be used only once and are fully recyclable once you’ve finished with it
