I come here whenever I eat out in Lincoln, once a month or so. I'd give Pimento 4 stars for food because it's all GOOD rather than vibrantly creative, but the selection of teas and coffees from world-class must-visit tea shop Imperial Teas a few doors down the hill pushes it safely into the 5 star zone. The location and atmosphere also help. Daily selections vary among a fairly diverse repetoire - the Ethiopian peanut stew is my favourite, but the goulash is also pretty amazing. I often order one of their lovely baked potatoes though - very good value and plenty of toppings available. Everything comes with their lovely salad garnish. They always have a vegan hot dessert option but it's tempting to order the no-sugar no-fat fruit cake every time!
Cons: accessibility tricky for wheelchairs etc
