Dress Code

We do occasionally receive a small amount of flak for allowing people dressed in a scruffy manner into the restaurant for dinner and Sunday lunch. We have, since 2008 never had an official dress code. Whilst the majority of our guests do like to dress up for dining at Washingborough Hall we don’t feel it necessary to impose a formal rule governing this. Society is changing and as such we need to move with the times. A number of guests arrive at Washingborough Hall for the first time feeling embarrassingly underdressed – that is neither their fault nor ours so why should we compound the issue by causing more distress?

We once enjoyed a delightful Afternoon Tea at The Ritz in London – I knew I had to wear a jacket and trousers from a visit some years ago but I had failed to bring a tie – this was no problem as the men’s locker room offered a choice from dozens of ties to make up for my error.

We don’t intend on going down this route at Washingborough Hall just yet, but we do ask that our dining guests do ‘dress up’ when visiting. We aim to be traditional in our values and offer an experience which is special and memorable.

Guest Reviews Superb Sunday Lunch

When we arrived we were ushered to a table in the bar and were allowed to make select our menu choices at leisure. The table in the dining room was spacious and service was excellent. I had the roast beef which was delicious. I will definately return.

Guest Reviews Fantastic Sunday Lunch

Went with my wife and another couple for Sunday lunch having previously visited and been impressed then. I have to say the standards are still very high and food and service first class. Special mention to the chefs as the food was some of the best I have tasted. Cannot wait to book again and will be back next year for my daughters wedding.

Guest Reviews Beautiful Surroundings and Lovely Afternoon Tea

We had a great visit today, my husbands work colleagues had treated us to afternoon tea for his 50th birthday, it was just lovely, soft relaxing music playing in the background and the food was delicious.

Guest Reviews A very good place to stay

We did a bargain break here which included 2 nights bed, breakfast and diner, as well as transport to, and a free entry into Lincoln Cathedral

Our room was absolutely super, as was the bathroom and the four poster bed.

Breakfast was excellent, as was diner each evening. Drinks were not expensive and the ambience of the hotel was lovely. The staff were very helpful., We would willingly stay again.

Guest Reviews Great Hotel!

The hotel is welcoming and relaxing with helpful staff both professional and friendly. My room had a very comfortable bed and a luxurious bathroom which was squeaky clean. Lunch and dinner were outstanding; a varied seasonal menu using locally sourced produce and vegetables cooked to perfection; desserts to die for and a great selection of cheeses. Breakfast for me included home made granola, fruit salad and pastries which were delicious.Great for those of us who skip the full English although i... Read more

Guest Reviews Charming in every way

A quite splendid stay and we could not have wished for more. Friendly and efficient staff, delightful surroundings and excellent bar and dining facilities. We are sorry that we do not have an excuse to return. We loved every aspect and it is but a short drive to Lincoln City and its magnificent Cathedral.

Guest Reviews Fabulous - four star establishment.

The Washingborough was a fantastic treat and completely different to the regular chain hotels. This boasts antique furnishings, interesting paintings and quirky sitting areas. We just loved our stay and every single member of staff went out of their way to make it enjoyable. Big thanks to all.

Guest Reviews Amazing!

We couldn't have wished for a better venue and Amy the director of romance made sure everything went smoothly.. nothing was too much trouble. She offered advice on suppliers, got back to our endless emails and hundreds of questions! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was and the staff were extremely attentive. We had exclusive use of the venue and all our guests commented on the rooms and how gorgeous the grounds were. We can't wait to visit again x

Guest Reviews Just book it - you honestly wont regret it!

We had our wedding weekend at Washingborough Hall, with a family meal on the Friday and wedding on the Saturday - everything was perfect. From the minute we booked Washingborough 2 years prior, Amy was on hand to help with anything, calming my nerves and guiding us through every step - Amy is an absolute star and made the wedding planning as smooth as possible. The staff at Washingborough are so welcoming & polite and were absolutely amazing on the day. The attention to detail at Washingboro... Read more
