Receptions

Your evening celebrations, in wonderful style

A reception to remember - Our Great Hall is the perfect place for your wedding reception in Lincolnshire, and we want you to celebrate your happy day your way.

If you’d like a traditional sit-down meal there’s plenty of room for tables and chairs laid out just the way you’d like. Or if you prefer something more informal, our fabulous medieval kitchen is the ideal place to put on a hog roast, or lay out a buffet, for your guests to take back to the Great Hall.

For entertainment perhaps you'd like a string quartet playing while you eat, or a ceilidh for everyone to join in after you eat? You can also hire a band for the Great Hall.

If you’re looking for something a little smaller, we can lay on a buffet in our West Range, which is specially designed for more intimate gatherings.

As Gainsborough Old Hall is a Grade 1 listed building, we’ll need you to use one of our preferred suppliers for your occasion, such as catering, lighting, heating and disco. Please see our Suppliers’ page for more information.

“Thank you for making our wedding day so special, we couldn't have asked for a better venue than the Old Hall. It has so much history and we loved making the most of the building and its surroundings with our medieval theme. The staff were great and we recommend the Old Hall as a wedding venue without hesitation. It made our special day so unique and definitely gave the WOW factor!'
