High Hopes for the High Bridge!

The long-awaited re-opening of the famous Stokes High Bridge Café in Lincoln is finally here.

This much-loved café has been a fixture on Lincoln’s High Street for centuries and now it’s back with a new look and a refreshed menu.

The Stokes team closed the doors to their flag ship cafe last year, after pandemic restrictions were introduced.

The 119-year-old family firm which has run the High Bridge since the 1930s, has been busy designing new menus and refreshing the look and feel of the High Bridge in readiness to welcome back customers.

The place was buzzing this week as guests including local dignitaries and press were treated to a ‘sneak peek’ at the High Bridge, take-in the newly refreshed décor and enjoy a menu tasting of some the new dishes.

Nick Peel is the fourth generation in the Stokes family to run the business.  He said: “We’re thrilled to welcome back guests to our High Bridge café.

“We’ve run this site for almost a century and in all those years it has never closed. So, it’s fantastic to be able to share this special place again with our customers along with the new décor and menu.”

Customers can shop, eat and enjoy the amazing surroundings again at the High Bridge café from Tuesday 18th May.

The new menu includes local, organic produce and offers vegan, gluten and dairy-free options. Dishes form an impressive line-up of breakfasts, lunches and light bites.

The High Bridge is the place to be for afternoon tea because from 2pm each day, a sumptuous selection of afternoon teas will also be served.

Choices include the luxurious ‘Duchess’ which comes with a bottle of champagne and the ‘Little Darlings’, the perfect platter for children. With all this on offer it won’t just be the High Bridge feeling refreshed!
