Uphill Lincoln welcomes back Winter Cafe space for visitors, locals and their dogs


The gorgeous Blue Room winter cafe is back by popular demand, with garden features, a new dog-friendly menu, and even live music on select weekends! Located next to the Lawn Cafe on Union Road in Lincoln, it is run by the 120-year-old family business, Stokes Tea & Coffee, which also owns the High Bridge Cafe on the High Street.

Stokes has relaunched the Blue Room cafe at the request of customers who visited the Blue Room’s Winter Garden cafe last year, which had to close prematurely due to pandemic restrictions.

Guests will be delighted to learn that from Friday 4th February to Sunday 27th March they will once again be able to enjoy fabulous surroundings, a sumptuous selection of cakes, lunches, light snacks and of course freshly roasted coffee and fine tea! Furry friends are also welcome and canine guests can indulge in a delicious ‘puppacino’ as well as other delicacies.

The Blue Room was originally built as a Victorian ballroom and has many original features including an eye-catching stained glass arched window. It is located in the Lawn Building, an imposing 200-year-old Grade II listed Georgian building set in lush grounds just a stone’s throw from the back of Lincoln Castle on Union Road in Lincoln.

The Blue Room Winter Café will be open Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for light snacks with live music performances on weekends.
