Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn
Providing in-house catering since the late 15th-century, Lincoln’s Inn offers culinary excellence for events. The 48-strong kitchen and catering team, led by head chef David Bush, is responsible for the delivery of delectable and innovative catering for every kind of occasion at the heritage-rich venue.
Lincoln’s Inn, set in a beautifully maintained 11-acre estate in the heart of London, is steeped in authentic grandeur, a noble attribute that is mirrored throughout the venue’s offering. With the rarity of access to archives going back almost 600 years, David and his team blend historic dishes with modern techniques, enabling them to bring the history of the venue to life through food.
Following the estate’s partial closure between 2016-2019, the catering team worked collaboratively with different departments to re-design events offerings with minimal disruption. The additional available time was used to send some of the chefs off for work experience at professional kitchens including Holborn Dining Rooms for exposure at high-end establishments.
The refurbishment project included the redesign of the Great Hall’s kitchen, project managed by the kitchen and catering team, now equipping them to cater for events of up to 700 guests and resulting in a significant rise in banqueting enquiries.

From a traditional afternoon in one of the most historic and famous rooms in sport, to collaborative work with a variety of innovative Michelin-starred chefs, our in-house catering team go above and beyond to provide food tailored to a variety of events and client needs, both on match and non-match days.
