9 Student Loan-Friendly Places To Go For a Drink In Lincoln

As a student, drinking and budgeting are two of the most important things you can do. So, needless to say, combining the two is crucial.

Here are the prices of a pint and a vodka and coke at some of the best bars and pubs in Lincoln – now it’s down to you to decide which is best.

1. The Swan

Vibe: student pub, chilled and casual and all profit goes back into the Students’ Union.

🍺 = £2.35

Vodka & coke: £2.75

Best part of this place? The price. And the view. Or both.

Cocktails over looking the Brayford 🙌🏻☀️🍹

2. Red Five

Vibe: buzzing dance bar withsome great student deals.

🍺 = £3

Vodka & coke: £2 (£1 with a student card)

You (probably) won’t get a better deal this good on bombs anywhere else.

So basically that is 10 bombs each for 7 people. That is the record for Red 5.

3. The Scene

Vibe: Lincoln’s LGBTQ venue, coffee lounge/bar by day, club by night.

🍺 = £3.10

Vodka & coke: £3 (£1 on Quids-in Tuesdays!)

If you’re looking for a fun night – with all of the right kinds of drama – then this is the scene for you (sorry).

They provide lovely drinks deals AND great advice.

Vodka & coke: £4.70 (£2.50 with Revs card!)

As a student, many bars, pubs and clubs offer student loyalty cards which give you a whole variety of discounts across drinks and even food in some – definitely so in Revs!

9. And lastly, no less than a classic Wetherspoons – or in Lincoln, The Square Sail.

Vibe: your average Spoons pub, but with a great view of the Brayford from upstairs.

🍺 = £2.79

Vodka & coke: £3.15

There’s no forking way you’ll be able to resist Lincoln’s very own Spoons.
