Lincoln: Stokes Coffee Innovate with their Takeaway & Delivery Service

Stokes Coffee Lincoln innovate with takeaway and delivery service

This is a paid and gifted partnership with Stokes Coffee

During this strange time that we're living in it's so nice to be able to support local businesses and help promote what they're doing (which is why I love running the Lincoln Bloggers UK community so much!). I'm delighted to be working with Stokes Coffee to share more about their takeaway and delivery offerings and to talk about the delicious afternoon tea that I was treated to. Hopefully this will be of interest to my Lincolnshire based readers.

Here's more on what Stokes Coffee are offering

Lincoln residents are elated to hear that Stokes Coffee now offers their quintessential English cafe experience at home.

In the face of the current pandemic, businesses have been encouraged to adapt their approach, which is why long-standing Family based company, Stokes Coffee decided to provide their much-loved coffee, tea and comforting meals for take-away & delivery.

Fourth generation MD, Nick Peel, and the team were determined to continue working alongside the Lincoln community and local producers. Just because their cafes had to shut did not mean they wanted to stop providing the very best for their customers during a time when those more frequent visits to your local cafe were not as regular. 

Stokes are also connecting with local support and community groups, so individuals can collect hot meals for those vulnerable members of the community who are shielding and isolating.

Bringing the Stokes Experience to your home

The take-away and delivery service focuses on bringing the cafe experience that many of us know and love, into the comfort of our own homes.

They offer fine and fresh, locally sourced ingredients while maintaining the responsibility of being kind to the environment. Their home cooked and home baked food is designed to satisfy everyone in the Lincoln community, as they can still bring an essence of the ‘Stokes experience’ into their homes.

Here is some of what they currently have on offer - 

  • Breakfast
  • Brunch
  • Lunch and British Classics
  • Gluten Free Menu
  • Omelettes and Salads
  • Grilled Sandwiches
  • Sandwiches & Gluten Free Sandwiches
  • Kids Menu
  • Cakes, Scones, Etc
  • Tea & Coffee to Infuse

Within their classic English menu, Stokes offer an abundance of their well-known dishes, including vegan and gluten-free options.

We are having to adapt how we traditionally celebrate special occasions and find new ways to make the days special. With Valentine's day soon approaching, the Stokes takeaway experience can provide you and the one you love with a beautiful selection of delicious dishes and treats made with the finest, locally sourced, produce including traditional breakfasts, elegant light bites, afternoon and cream teas (subject to availability) seasonal specials and hearty main meals. Which can be enjoyed together, or even virtually.

Whether you are planning to celebrate Valentine's Day, an anniversary, Mothers Day or simply as a pick me up, the Stokes Afternoon Tea provides the perfect luxury. 

The takeaway service is available on JustEat, where you have the option to have your British classics delivered to your door, or collection is available at The Lawn Cafe, situated within the Stokes Coffee roastery in uphill Lincoln.

My afternoon tea

I'm a huge fan of afternoon tea and so I eagerly picked up my tea for two on Thursday morning. I arranged a time slot and collected it from The Lawn Cafe which was very straightforward - if you live closer to the centre then you can have it delivered to your door via  JustEat which makes it even more convenient. 

I had specified my dietary requirements beforehand and Stokes were very accommodating and I could choose between getting coffee or tea as part of the tea. It was put in a lovely box and was a real treat to open - as you can see in the first picture, the top layer contained all of the gorgeous cakes and there was also a bottom layer with the savoury food such as the sandwiches and mini quiches. I was also given napkins, wooden cutlery, two teabags, two mini jams and two pots of clotted cream. 

I couldn't fit all of the afternoon tea onto my stand as you get so much food, which is brilliant. Savoury wise, we received smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, cheese and pickle sandwiches, mini quiches and sausage rolls. It all tasted great but I was a particular fan of the cheese and pickle sandwiches as the pickle was just delicious! 

The sweets were just as tasty with a big selection of treats from a fruity cheesecake to macarons. The fruity cheesecake was a favourite and also the little lemon slices. The size of the sweets was perfect as sometimes I can find it a bit overwhelming. And of course, afternoon tea wouldn't be complete without scones with plenty of clotted cream and jam. Yum.

Overall, it was such a lovely treat - which is what we need at the moment, and would be a perfect way to celebrate an occasion and to make that little bit more special, as well as supporting a local business which is something that is so worth doing at the moment. Thank you Stokes Coffee!
