Venison & quince sausage roll, quail ballotine, and fillet of Lincolnshire red beef are just some of the tasty food items on the New Year’s Eve tasting menu at The Tower Hotel in uphill Lincoln.
The Tower Hotel on Westgate has launched the tasting menu as something new for this year, which will be available between 7pm-1am on New Year’s Eve (December 31, 2021).

The food on the tasting menu is: black truffle prawn toast, venison & quince sausage roll, whipped yellison goats cheese, quail ballotine, oven roasted cod loin, fillet of Lincolnshire red beef, layered chocolate torte, and After Eight macaroons.
Finn Dillon, Manager at The Tower Hotel, told The Lincolnite: “Billy the head chef joined us eight months ago and this is a great celebration of what he’s achieved so far and the direction The Tower is going.”
Head chef Billy Frost worked at The Ritz in London, as well as restaurants in his home town of Doncaster, before moving to The Lincoln Hotel in 2018. After three years there he became head chef at The Tower Hotel and he loves to create new dishes.
He said: “It is food people recognise done really well, with good flavours and classic techniques. This is a starting point for taking the menu forward and I have lots more ideas to come.”
The beef main is his favourite on the menu and Billy added: “It works well with the sweetness and earthy flavours, with a nice prime beef fillet.”
