Dine in style in a location with a rich and varied history

Sessions House is a Grade II listed building that was built in 1809 to house the Sessions House court and City Jail. Many original features still exist today, including the courtroom, prison cells and prisoner exercise yard.

The building continued to be used as a magistrates court and police station until the 1990’s.

The grounds are a Scheduled Ancient Monument and are protected due to significant archaeological finds dating back over 1000 years.

The grounds of Sessions House have revealed Saxon pottery as well as evidence of a Roman cemetery. The site has also been found to show evidence of a Medieval church and graveyard.

"Sessions restaurant has an excellent reputation for outstanding food and service, providing guests with a vibrant and quality dining experience in authentic and ambient surroundings."

Food from the chefs of tomorrow

As part of their Catering and Hospitality studies at Lincoln College, students are responsible for everything in our restaurant, from the preparation and service of meals to the front-of-house operations. By working in this real commercial environment, students gain a valuable insight into the busy and prosperous hospitality industry.

All of our food is locally-sourced and we only use the highest-quality ingredients in our dishes.

Our menu changes regularly, this allows you to treat yourself to something new and gives our students the chance to learn a wide variety of skills and techniques.
