Funeral Teas, Receptions & Wakes

Washingborough Hall is a country house hotel close to Lincoln Crematorium. Our friendly events team have been hosting funeral teas for many years. As a popular Lincoln funeral tea venue, we understand how important it is that arrangements are made with ease. Please rest assured that we’ll take care of everything and on the day our staff will be attentive and professional, yet unobtrusive. In pre Covid times we were able to accommodate up to 150 guests for a wake. Government has now limited numbers to just 15 people for a wake / funeral tea / reception. The hotel is currently closed on Mondays & Tuesdays. We are available to host a funeral wake from 10am on Wednesdays. We make a room hire charge of £75 for your private room. Please contact reception.
