Fantastic central venue for a joint 40th bash – the team at The Blue Lion were relaxed and friendly, the minimum spend was very reasonable and the food/catering options were perfect. Would definitely recommend it.

Allright place, not fantastic, and nice little outside area but very limited as only selected people can sit there. I was sitting outside and went back in to order another beer. By the time I was served there were a lot of people outside and I wasn't allowed to sit outside anymore despite my coat still on the bench outside. Bit expensive and mainly good for the surrounding companies.

I hired The Blue Lion for a combination of my birthday and a surprise party for my partner (50+ people). There is absolutely nothing that I would have changed in choosing The Blue Lion.
Cheryl, the owner is flexible, accommodating, responsive and understanding. The staff who served us were friendly and did a great job.
I ordered the rustic buffet which was mounds of cheese, large baguettes, meats and condiments ( I wanted something for my guests to nibble on as we were there from 7pm-1am), and the food was abundant, tasty and perfect for what I wanted. They also supplied me with some plates and napkins for a cake that my friend had brought (this had been discussed in advance).
I was able to have my own playlist and decorate the way that I wanted. Many of my guests commented on the size and layout of the venue (in a positive way), and the pool table was well used.
I saw half a dozen places before I chose The Blue Lion and I could not be happier that I did.

Could not fault the workers who served at our engagement party back in 2016. Everything was outstanding until the food came out at the event.
We felt welcomed at the venue when we went to view, the owner was great and we could decorate how we liked and use our own DJ.

What ruined it for us was when we had paid £250 for the food, which you could have got for £50 max from your local shop. To say we were disappointed would have been an understatement and to have 100+ close family and friends (we both have big families) keep complaining that they are hungry throughout a big event in your life is unsettling.

Even for nibbles it was very little and our guests were not expecting meals and I was not expecting meals for this, but at least a little nibble each. However, I was expecting £200 worth of food not meals but food that was the money I had paid and there clearly was not. I understand that profits have to be made but not on that scale. Unfortunately false information was then brought up when trying to sort everything out.

When discussing this with the owner, it was dealt with unprofessionally. The owner cannot take constructive criticism or admit when wrong.
I have uploaded the pictures of the food, which were taken 2 mins after the food had come out, as you can see people rushed to get food and look at how little there was and all for £250!

We hired the Blue Lion for our wedding reception and we could not more highly recommend it. Everything we asked for was in place and the whole evening ran smoothly and like clockwork.

Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful location it was. The thing we loved is that we were able to really make it feel like ‘our space’ for the evening, we were able to decorate it how we wanted and Cheryl (the landlady) was so accommodating in meeting with us and addressing our requests.

The food was lovely and we were bowled over by how helpful and welcoming the staff were on the night.

If you are looking to hire a pub for an event and you want character, a feeling of warmth and space then this is the place for you. We especially loved the layout of the pub, we had 85 guests and everyone was able to sit down, have their own area in the various nooks but there was still plenty of space to dance and move around.

We had the most perfect of days and the Blue Lion was a huge part of this.

Hired the Blue Lion for my 40th birthday party and had an absolutely brilliant night! Great party venue. Cheryl was really helpful and flexible when we were organising the evening and the bar staff on the night were great.

Excellent. Just a ten minute walk from KingsX train station. Really good vegan burger. Real fire. Friendly staff. Decent prices.

The Blue Lion turned out a smashing place for a zero-ended birthday party. The staff were relaxed and accomodating, the food was top-end and the space was flexible and inviting. It's got a quirky chic vibe and if I'm still around in ten years for the next celebration I'll be back.

In late January 2018 our walking group of some 45 people, hired The Blue Lion on a Sunday afternoon to hold its AGM and Annual Dinner. Cheryl was very accommodating and went out of her way to make sure that everything went smoothly. We all very much enjoyed our visit to The Blue Lion, it was a great friendly atmosphere. Cheryl and her staff looked after us really well. To be recommended!

Lovely pub, it's nice to find an Independent pub with its own menu. The food and the service were great, the place is big and nice and they have Veggie options.

A genuine surprise. Really great especially for price. Ordered fish finger sandwich expecting freezer fodder- instead had fresh fish with home made tartar and huge wedges of granary bread. The log fire is a lovely touch as well!

We booked a Christmas Departmental lunch at the Blue Lion and the food and service were second to none. For once there was not a single complaint from the group and felt that the Turkey was particularly well cooked. For the price you would struggle to find a better selection and service.
Afterwards the group enjoyed themselves into evening playing pool and enjoying the Christmas atmosphere by a real log fire

I have held various events here from personal parties to community club events and quiz nights and I would absolutely recommend.

Cheryl is helpful, thorough and a prompt responder. Whatever the event she has been accommodating to its needs.

The pub has a great layout, a very cosy homely feel and the food is delicious. Recommended!

I had the pleasure of visiting The Blue Lion one evening. I was pleasantly greeted by friendly staff and great conversation all around the pub. Though busy, the atmospere was cosy and welcoming without being too overwhelming. The interior is rustic and homely with a mix of tables, chairs, sofas and booths + candles all around for an extra welcoming touch. What's more, the food itself was delicious and was served quickly! It is a great venue whether you would like a drink after work or to host a small gathering. My friends and I will definitely be returning.

I booked The Blue Lion pub for private hire for my partner's birthday party. As soon as I saw the inside of the pub I loved it as it has lots of quirky character and charm. Cheryl the manager was great and gave ideas on how the different areas of the pub could be laid out for the party, including a dance area at the back She also ensured a delicious organic buffet was ordered which many of the revellers commented on . It felt extremely relaxed and the vibe was fantastic having complete privacy of the whole pub for the whole night without any rush to end the fun! I would definitely love to hold another event at this great venue put pack it out next time to its full capacity!

We hosted a retirement do at the Blue Lion recently. The staff were really friendly and helpful leading up to the event and on the night despite us being a large group. Was very hard to find a place with enough space for us all but also a lovely cosy pub feel and the Blue Lion had it all. Many thanks, A
