City restaurant to serve Lincolnshire tapas

Lincolnshire tapas: Lincoln restaurant to offer a local take on traditional Spanish dining.

The Bowl Full in Lincoln has temporarily closed after seven years of trading but will take on a new form as a tapas bar.

Re-opening on November 3, the restaurant will offer a mixture of traditional Spanish and quirky Lincolnshire tapas.

Situated just out of the city centre, near West Common on the corner of Hewson Road and West Parade, the restaurant is trying to attract customers with an opening offer of three tapas and a bottle of wine for £20.

Owner Joanne Stewart had been running monthly tapas nights at The Bowl Full and the success prompted her to transform the restaurant.

Stewart said: “We want to offer an introduction to authentic Spanish tapas as well as making the most of Lincolnshire’s produce.”

The local produce for the tapas would include cheeses such as Lincolnshire Poacher and Cote Hill Blue, as well as Lincolnshire sausage and haslet.

The Bowl Full was formerly on the High Street and offered home made food mainly in the daytime but the tapas bar will be open from 6pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

“The idea of tapas is food that you can enjoy with a drink, and we have been refurbishing the inside of the building to ensure a great atmosphere,” Stewart added.
