The Lincoln




About Us

The Lincoln is a grand old Carlton pub built in 1854. Since the end of 2014, she has seen a new lease of life under the direction of Iain Ling (ex MoVida) on the floor and Lachlan Cameron (ex MoVida, Supernormal) in the kitchen. Our kitchen works closely with small regional suppliers and is focused on using the highest quality sustainable and seasonal produce, with as much as possible made in-house, from our bread, mustard and pickles to curing own own free-range bacon.

Our public bar has retained its art-deco features, with 12 taps featuring craft beer, showcasing speciality brewing at its best, and trusty Carlton Draught. With a wine list focused on small interesting producers, there are pleasant surprises to be found if you are keen to try something a little different. Our space lends itself to a variety of areas suitable for groups of any size and at anytime of the day, our warm and professional team will make you feel right at home.
