An English Tradition

Afternoon Tea

Heart-warming and elegant in all the right measures, Washingborough Hall Country House Hotel is the perfect spot to enjoy afternoon tea in Lincoln. Just under 3 miles from the bright lights and winding streets of Lincoln, the hotel enjoys a quiet, green location with plenty of parking and pretty gardens.

On warmer days, afternoon tea can be served alfresco on the terrace. But when the weather’s a little more inclement, you can snuggle up by the log fire, hunker down in the country-check snug, enjoy the elegance of the Dining Room Restaurant, or pull up a pew in the charming lounge-bar. 

During the current climate, our Afternoon Tea will be served in our Dining Room or on the Terrace, we hope to resume other offerings in the near future. Booking essential.
