Hello May!

We have had another busy month at Uncle Henry’s! It was lovely to see so many customers over Easter for our Glorious Gin Weekend. We had our handpicked gin suppliers in store with their products to taste and we were even serving gin and tonic cake in the café! We were also lucky enough to host Piper’s Crisps Knight from the Lincoln Knights Trail. We hosted Nicola de la Haye, who was the Custodian of Lincoln Castle.

We enjoyed a trip to Lincolnshire Showground for Countryside Lincs where we had a stall with free seed planting provided by Nicky Greenwood, our head gardener here at Uncle Henry’s. We would love to see any pictures of your plants! Feel free to share them with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

On Friday 28th April we had our Ribs Night in the Café which was fully booked! Everyone enjoyed the food, including our delicious pork ribs and pulled pork burgers! Don’t forget you can buy our homemade burgers and pork ribs from the butchery to try at home.

This month our Café themed evening is Steak Night on Friday 19th May. The menu will be available on the website soon and tables can be booked by calling 01652 640308 from 6:30pm.
