Stokes Lawn Café

Located just a stone's throw away from the Castle in uphill Lincoln, Stokes Lawn Cafe, is housed within what was once the cookhouse of the former 'Lincoln Lunatic Asylum'.

For the coffee connoisseurs, there is also a fantastic viewing area in the cafe, overlooking Stokes' roastery at The Lawn. You can watch the master roasters at work and smell the delicious coffee roasting away - all whilst enjoying a cup of the finished product!

The 60-seater restaurant at the Stokes Lawn Cafe located in the Lawn, Lincoln, has been refurbished in the most eco-friendly way. With the help of the finest crafts people in the area, they have carefully restored, reused and up cycled a multitude of items found at the site.
They re-upholstered the sofas and chairs with their coffee sacks, uplifted and relaid the original floorboards from the main dance hall which is now The Blue Room, and even took the old theatre spotlights and re-designed them.

On the menu, you'll find a great selection of delicious dishes and sweet treats made with the finest, locally sourced produce. Enjoy traditional breakfasts, elegant light bites, afternoon teas (subject to availability), seasonal specials and hearty main meals. All dishes are served with Stokes famous fine teas and freshly roasted coffees.
