The Lincoln is a historic Carlton pub first opened in 1854. Our kitchen is focused on using the highest quality regional, sustainable and seasonal produce, with as much as possible made in-house, from our bread, mustard and pickles to curing own free-range bacon. Our art deco bar has 12 taps featuring a rotating list of Australian and New Zealand craft beers (and ol’ mate Carlton Draught!), as well as a curated wine list showcasing small interesting producers, including some of Australia’s most progressive winemakers. Our space is suitable for groups, whether for a sit-down meal or casual drinks event, and at any time of the day, our friendly and professional team will make you and your guests feel right at home.
