The White Hart Hotel in Lincoln will soon undergo a major refurbishment by Lindum Group, including the creation of two new terraced cocktail bars and a luxury spa.

Guests can look forward to the complete refurbishment and refit of the main Lounge Bar, as well as the addition of a new Club Bar and a relocated reception. At the same time, there will be a sensitive refurbishment of the ground and first floor function rooms, which includes the former Orangery / Eastgate Suite and King Richard Room.

The restaurant will also be updated and will be rebranded and re-launched. This will include an impressive new shop front onto the Bailgate, and new commercial kitchens installed. The venue will stand as a sophisticated ‘special occasion’ dining destination in its own right, offering high standards of cuisine with extensive use of local produce.

The hotel’s owner, Andrew Long, said: “Since acquiring the White Hart Hotel in July 2022, the intention has always been to maximise the full trading potential and to enhance the status of the full range of facilities. Our extensive refurbishment will respect the centuries of heritage in the building and its exceptional location.

“To now have a confirmed date for the commencement of the works is very exciting for the future of the White Hart, as well as a further milestone for Lincoln’s historic Bailgate and the surrounding Uphill area.

“We believe that the hotel will become one of the very best in the region, as well as remaining a popular and welcoming venue for our loyal guests, many of whom have known the hotel for several decades and generations.”

Six bedrooms will be re-launched at the start of June, with the other 44 bedrooms and suites to be refurbished in a rolling programme throughout the remainder of the year.

The hotel will also benefit from façade changes, as well as new flat roofs. The spa will feature new changing rooms, a sauna, and a pool.

There is also a full re-branding project being undertaken with renowned illustrator Chris Mitchell, who has been instrumental in many iconic designs for world-famous brands.

The hotel’s Reservations and Events teams will continue to be available throughout the closure and refurbishment period and will be contactable from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm by telephone on 01522 526 222 or via email at [email protected].
