Stokes High Bridge Café

A traditional café serving locally roasted coffee located on Lincoln's High Bridge, the country's oldest bridge that still has buildings in use on it.

High Bridge Café, overlooking the bustling High Street and the River Witham, offers two fully licensed dining rooms and serves traditional home cooked food, light meals and snacks as well as Stokes’ famous teas and freshly roasted coffee.

All produce is sourced locally where possible and cooked fresh every day by talented chefs.

The café offers a varied menu including hearty British favourites such as Roast Beef, Steak pie and fish and chips, as well as a selection of delicious salads and sandwiches, homemade cakes, pastries and desserts. High Bridge Café's traditional afternoon tea is regarded as the best in town and are served daily from 2pm.

The High Bridge, built over the River Witham in the 12th century is the oldest bridge in England with houses still upon it, and this unique building has been standing tall since 1540.
