FAQs

Do you offer accommodation for guests?

We don't offer any accommodation onsite but we do have preferential rates in place with some local hotels. Please ask your events team contact for further details.

Is parking available at the Inn?

Yes we do have parking available on a first come, first served basis for event guests. Parking is charged at £5 per hour or part-of, Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. At all other times, parking is free of charge. See our Location section for more information.

Do you allow corkage?

Yes, please ask your events team contact for current rates.

Do you have a Toastmaster available?

We don’t have a toastmaster as such, however our butlers who run your event are very happy to announce the call for dinner and introduce speeches but any other requirements and duties would then have to be carried out by a Toastmaster.

Are there areas for taking photos?

Yes we have 11 acres of grounds for you to use (non-exclusive use) as back drops for your photos. In bad weather, there will be options available inside which ever hall you have hired.

Is there a room hire charge?

Yes and we also ask for minimum numbers for catering. Please speak to the events team for further details.

Do you have a list of suppliers we can use?

Yes we have recommended suppliers, whose details can be found here, but we also allow other suppliers, subject to relevant health & safety and insurance checks.

Are you licensed for civil ceremonies?

No I’m afraid we’re not a licensed venue.

Do you supply a cake stand and knife?

Yes we have a round silver cake stand or a square silver cake stand available to use, with knifes.

Do you supply furniture?

Yes our hall hire rates include use of our wooden rectangle tables and our leather and wooden dining chairs. For weddings where you choose the in-house caterer, we also supply linen, Lincoln’s Inn crest crockery, cutlery and glassware.
We don’t have any round tables available and due to lack of storage and the value of our furniture, we're afraid we cannot take it out of the halls either. Our furniture is very in-keeping with the venue surroundings, we have very comfortable chairs, and we find rectangle tables are more sociable than round ones!

What else can you supply?

Candelabra
One 3-prong silver candelabra per table is provided complimentary for seated lunch and dinner weddings. If any extra candelabras are requested, these are charged at £12.00 + VAT each.

Name Cards
Lincoln’s Inn crested blank place cards can be provided for 50 pence + VAT each for you to write yourself.
If you would like Lincoln’s Inn to type up the place cards for you, this would be charged at £1.00 + VAT each. A word document list of names as you wish them to appear on the place card would be required at least 2 working days before the event.

Menu CardsThree Lincoln’s Inn crested printed menu cards per table of up to 12 guests will be provided complimentary for lunch and dinner weddings. Extra menu cards can be printed at a charge of £2.00 + VAT each.

Chair Covers
What can we say, our chairs are unique so don’t require any chair covers, and I’d be surprised if any can be found to fit them!

Any other equipment you might require can be hired in by us (subject to availability) or brought in by you (subject to suitability checks).

Is there a cloakroom provided?

Yes a manned cloakroom is available for all our events catered for by the in-house team.

Do you have a cash bar facility?

Yes we can offer cash bars. We do ask for a minimum spend of £500.

Do you charge a service fee?

No, all necessary staff are included in the hire charge fee. If you require additional staff for certain tasks or to work late or earlier than the contracted event times a charge may be applied.

Can I place a date on provisional hold?

Yes a room may be provisionally reserved with the Events Department. This reservation will be held for up to 10 working days, at which point an update or confirmation in writing is required.
If the Events Department should receive another enquiry from a third party for the same date within the 10 day provisional booking period, confirmation or release must be advised within 48 hours.
No more than two dates can be reserved on a provisional basis at any one time.
Use of any room is by permission of the Masters of the Bench of Lincoln’s Inn who reserve the right to refuse any booking or admission at their discretion.

How do I confirm my provisional booking?

We ask you to send us an email confirming the name and address we should issue your paperwork too, estimated timings of your event, estimated numbers and estimated food and beverage requirements. Following this written confirmation to the Events Department, Lincoln’s Inn will issue a contract for this booking. This contract must be signed and returned within 7 days, along with an initial deposit payment (10% of the provisional function value) to be received by the Inn within 14 days (or as per the date advised on the confirmation letter).
A booking is not considered ‘confirmed’ until both the signed contract and first deposit is received by the Events Department. If these items are not returned by the date requested, the Inn reserves the right to resell the room.
A second deposit payment (40% of the provisional function value) will then be required one calendar month before the event date.

Do you allow fireworks?

No, due to the nature and proximity of our buildings we dot allow fireworks to be set off from our grounds.
