Bailgate Deli, in Lincoln's historic Cathedral Quarter, is a vegan and vegetarian café and deli. Our food is almost entirely made in-house. The menu includes standard items such as a full vegan breakfast and a mezzanine plate added to by daily specials (we're passionate about cooking and love making new dishes).
Through the day we serve great coffee, proper hot chocolate and lots of other drinks. Cakes and savouries are made daily. We know how to make a good gluten free pastry for a steady flow of tarts with vegan fillings. Our deli shelves have many of the staples needed in good plant based cooking. Our chiller cabinet always has a range of great salads. Most days of the week you can find Welbeck's properly made bread.
The café is small but doubles in size during the summer as we spill out on to the pavement!

It's a Christmas Miracle - the Makers Market has special permission to go ahead this year, the same dates that the famous Lincoln Christmas Market was due to take place. Local's can visit the market safely, to find unique gifts for their loved ones this Christmas.
The Lincoln Artists’ Market is a group of traditional and contemporary artists who sell their work on a street market in Lincoln Castle Square and St. Martin's Square.
Before Covid-19, the markets were held every first Saturday of the month from March to December in the Castle Square, every third Saturday of the month in St. Martin's Square from June to September. Then at the Christmas Village in St. Martin’s Square on the Friday and Saturday of the Lincoln Christmas Market in December.
These unique markets offer a great opportunity to buy something a bit different for yourself or as gifts for others.
