Owners Jamie and James are local residents who live a stone’s throw away from the venue and

The Sycamore’s co-Director James has a background in hospitality, spanning decades of
experience from restaurants worldwide, including locations such as London, Sydney and Dublin;
and has even worked for the renowned Marco Pierre White. Co-Director Jamie is Lincoln born and
bred, having recently left a successful career in nursing to go full-time in the business, handling
suppliers, staff and much more.
Following the success of their inaugural restaurant, The Oaks situated at Thorpe on the Hill, The
Sycamore is a sibling restaurant and carries over the same values of supporting local suppliers,
with produce sourced from Lincolnshire and the local borders. These businesses include local
meat from Foster’s Butchers, cakes from Wraith’s Catering & Bakes, products from The Cheese
Society, bread from Welbourn’s Bakery, coffee roasted by Seven Districts, a range of wines
selected especially from Lincoln Wine School, fresh produce from Nathan Willows, and Gluten
Free goodies from Robin Rose Bakes.
The venue has had a complete refurbishment, with an antique pink, black and grey colour scheme
throughout the light and airy premises, featuring natural hints from wicker shades and plants –
creating a freshly renovated, stylish, modern and clean interior for all to enjoy.
The front of the restaurant will sport a new window hatch with a bar for coffee and ice cream to
takeaway – perfect if you are enjoying a walk along the Common, or better still, take a break and
sit outside in the al fresco dining area to enjoy a bite to eat.
The Sycamore’s menu will consist of favourites such as pizza, burgers and chicken wings,
specialising including a mix of charcuterie and small plates – offering a pre-theatre-esque early
bird neighbourhood menu, often seen over in James’ hometown in Ireland.
The Sycamore welcomes all with step-free access, baby change facilities and it’s dog-friendly
ethos! Additional to the new restaurant, upstairs will boast a renovated accommodation space,
The Treehouse, which offers visitors a place to stay, rewind and explore the city of Lincoln.
