Your guide to the best food & drink independents in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire has a rich food and drink heritage. With its fertile soils and easily-worked fields, mustard growing, pig rearing, cheesemaking and arable farming have all famously been carried out here for centuries. With the help of Lincolnshire editors Elaine (north & central Lincs) and Robin (south Lincs), Great Food Club will shine a light on the best Lincolnshire restaurants, pubs, producers, farm shops and delis, with some exclusive member offers included.
