Thor-oughly brilliant! Lincoln Viking tipi bar returns

Enjoy some newly created drinks and warm and cosy festive cheer at Lincoln’s Viking Tipi Bar, which opened in the Cornhill on Friday.

Two linked canvas tipis form the bar, which has a new layout with more open space and it is decorated with twinkling lights, wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit.
