A Night of Celebration Marks the Official Reopening of Lincoln’s White Hart Hotel 

Friday 08 March 2024

Following a night of celebration and entertainment, we are now officially reopened.

The White Hart Hotel in the city’s historic Bailgate, complete with its newly appointed restaurant, Antlers is now officially open following the complete and extensive refurbishment of the hotel. 

The Right Worshipful the Mayor of the City of Lincoln, Councillor Biff Bean officially cut the ribbon to mark the hotel officially open. 

This was followed by a drinks reception in the newly refurbished Royal Courtyard with its spectacular transparent dome, held for invited guests, partners, associates and friends of the hotel who were able to view the distinguished sword of King Richard II, which is kept at the nearby Lincoln Guildhall, first presented by King Richard II to the Mayor of Lincoln in 1387. 

Owner of the White Hart and Principal Director of Travel Sector Property, Andrew Long, said: “It was a pleasure to declare the White Hart officially open and to celebrate with friends, family and those who have made it possible to transform this amazing, historic hotel into what we see today. 

“We were especially grateful to Lincoln Guildhall for allowing us to also mark the occasion in the presence of the historic sword of King Richard II. This reflects not only the history of the hotel and its immediate surroundings in Uphill Lincoln, but also our passion for the fascinating history of the city.”

Purchased by Mr Long in 2022, the hotel has been completely transformed. Originally one of the oldest Coaching Inns in the region, the hotel is located on Bailgate, one of the city’s most historic streets, within yards of the iconic Lincoln Cathedral and medieval Lincoln Castle.

As well as a tasteful renovation of the bedrooms, the hotel now proudly boasts the fully refurbished and renamed Colonnade Cocktail Bar & Lounge at the very heart of the hotel, as well as the all-new Gibson Club Bar for more relaxed occasions. The hotel also offers a wealth of additional wedding and function suites.

The hotel’s stylish new Antlers Restaurant, opened at the start of December, now serves the very finest local and seasonal produce from a host of local suppliers and artisan producers.

Alongside this, diners are able to choose from a carefully curated wine list and an extensive range of signature cocktails.

In addition, Antlers also offers Private Dining, in a newly created, light filled space at the rear of the restaurant. Suitable for intimate gatherings or celebrations, as well as smaller corporate events, it means that whatever the occasion, Antlers truly has something to offer everyone.
