Ladies Who Lunch

In partnership with some of Lincoln’s most celebrated local businesses, we’re launching a new Ladies Who Lunch event. Supporters will enjoy a day of high-quality cuisine, couture and boutique browsing on Thursday 10th October.

White Hart Cocktails

What to expect

The elegantly refurbished White Hart Hotel in the heart of uphill Lincoln will host our inaugural event this autumn. With all the charm of the historic Bailgate, the venue will be beautifully decorated by The Lincolnshire Flower Company.


Offering culinary delights and classic cocktails, The White Hart combines the finest local ingredients and best artisanal producers. Supporters will enjoy a welcome cocktail and bespoke two-course menu:

Main Option – Stuffed Chicken Breast
Indulge in a sumptuous chicken breast, prepared with Lincolnshire sausage and apricot. Served with a fondant potato, root vegetable puree and finished with a rich sage jus.

Vegetarian Option – Pea, Broad Bean & Lemon Risotto
Enjoy a refreshing risotto made with peas, broad beans and a hint of lemon. Accompanied by a sesame parmesan crisp, this vegetarian dish promises vibrant flavours.

Dessert – Lemon Tart
Savour the perfect balance of sweet and sharp flavours. The lemon tart is accompanied with Chantilly cream, candied lemon and a touch of raspberry gel, for a sophisticated end to a gourmet dining experience.
