Private Hire - Me and my wife booked the entire venue on a Sunday to celebrate our wedding and we had the best time ever!! ! The bar staff looked after us throughout the night and ensured we had a great time. The food was gorgeous and plenty and the drinks were reasonably priced and varied! We brought in our own DJ, chocolate fountain, sweets and other props. Our aim was to make sure our guests had a night to remember and they truly did! I cannot praise this venue enough for making our night so special. Thank you so much! :) More...

Amazing! We can’t thank Cheryl enough for making our wedding party so easy to organise from overseas - advising on arrangements and taking care of everything on the day. The Blue Lion is just perfect - friendly and full of character - with a really a wonderful team. Delicious food got rave reviews from everyone, from small kids to parents out way past their bedtime. We can’t believe there’s a better place in central London for a weekend party. We'd recommend you to all our friends, but most of them were there and are already enthusiastically spreading the word. Thank you again. You made this newly-hitched couple very very happy. More...

Lovely warm, cosy pub with a fire which will supposedly come on when it gets cold enough (outside). It felt pretty cold to me but I guess you can't necessity tell that when the central heating is as good as it is here. Nice place for a sedate, catch up or games-oriented evening. More...

I had my 50th birthday party at The Blue Lion on Saturday and I can honestly say everything went brilliantly, and totally exceeded my expectations. The layout of this pub is stupendously good for a private party. I had 60 guests and there was plenty of space for people to sit and talk. There are sofas, booths, tables - places to chat and drink and eat the incredibly delicious food that Cheryl and her team provided from a menu that I pre-ordered from a week before the event. The lighting was fab, the pub was warm when we arrived on a cold, wet November evening. I had my own DJ, who plugged into the pub’s speaker system and this worked great. I was in great hands as Cheryl clearly thinks about everything and simply knows how to put on a superb private party. Its the perfect pub party venue in my opinion. I am honestly delighted with how my party went and still full of a warm, happy feeling from the night. Cheryl’s staff are friendly and relaxed too. We added decorations when we arrived - balloons and banners etc. Booking everything with Cheryl was effortless, my party was a success and all my guests were happy. If you are thinking about having a party in a pub, this place is perfect. It does look different in the evening to the daytime e.g. lava lamps and other cool lamps in the evening are nice touches - so do check out the photos other people have posted. More...

A GREAT place for a WEDDING RECEPTION at the right price!!! We had our wedding reception at The Blue Lion last Saturday. We loved the place and, most importantly, all our guests were very happy. Staff were helpful, the service was great, they let us decorate the place as we wanted, the final result was well over our expectations. All food we ordered was amazing, especially the pork pies, the sausages and the black rice salad. Even our Italian guests loved the selection of Italian salamis and cheeses and the pesto pasta salad. Everyone was happy with the drink selections. Cheryl and Maria offer an excellent Wedding Service at a price which is very competitive for London. If we decide to have a reaffirmation party in the next years we will no doubt go back to the Blue Lion. THANK YOU Maria and Cheryl for all you have done for us. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! More...

Hired out this gem for my 30th, and I'm so happy I did! It was the perfect setting for the group (around 80 people), though would also have suited a smaller number. I'm really pleased that I arranged a buffet too, as so many guests commented on the quality of the food. We personalised the space with balloons and photos everywhere, and played music off an iPad. The staff were really friendly, and the night couldn't have gone better. Thanks so much Cheryl and the team for making it so special! More...

I can’t recommend the Blue Lion highly enough as a venue for a party or event. Cheryl and her team were easy to talk to, full of good advice and keen to make the 50th birthday party we were organising a big success for us. The venue easily accommodated the 80 + guests we had. Their staff on the evening were great, the food on offer exceeded our expectations and they even helped us clear up. 5 stars! More...

I hired The Blue Lion as sole use for my birthday celebration. It couldn't have been simpler or gone better. Cheryl ensure that the organisation was as easy as you could wish for. The buffet food was great; the staff were professional and helful; there was a good range of drinks; simple PA system for music (just stick the jack into an old iphone & stream playlists across the pub's wifi) and the overall ambience & flow of the pub is terrific for an informal party. Oh and it cost me a lot less than I thought it was going to! More...

I hosted a surprise 50th birthday party (for around 45 people) at the Blue Lion on 7th September and it was a fantastic event. From my initial contact with manager Cheryl by email to visiting the venue to meeting her and discussing options - it was a very easy process and Cheryl was incredibly helpful and great at suggesting things to make the event go well.You can hire the pub on the weekends and it is great to have the whole pub to yourselves. It was ideal for what I wanted. The food was great (and there was plenty of it) and the selection of beers etc was very good. The bar staff were fabulous and I would highly recommend hosting your party there. I will certainly think of using it again in the future. Thank you all. More...

A great pub that retains a welcome old-fashioned touch. Spacious and welcoming, it had a good selection of craft beers and the silver-pipey ones were better than the usual suspects. Food was a tad cheaper than most London pubs. Nice place to be. More...

Diamond!Booked the Blue Lion for my 60th birthday party because of its convenient location and charming warmth when first visiting. I'm happy to report that we had a fantastic party.The staff were brilliant, food very good (and well priced) and the venue really lent itself to a great party. Everyone commented on how good it was – places to sit and chat, room to move, good sound and dance floor and areas where the music did not drown conversation, a great traditional boozer and very accessible for public transport. The overall impression was that it was like being in your favourite pub with all your mates around you. I cannot think of anything that did not work.Well done Team Blue Lion! More...

Delightful pub in central London. It's a little off the beaten track which may explain why it isn't a dump like so many other pubs of its ilk. Good decor and a welcoming atmosphere coupled with s good selection of beers and other drinks make this highly recommended. The only disappointment was the somewhat grim loos. More...

A group of 49 of us visited for lunch before going onto the nearby Postal Museum. The booking process was very straightforward and well-managed by Cheryl. On the day, we arrived a little early but staff were very accommodating and allowed us to take our seats while they continued their preparations. The meal was excellent and reasonably priced. We were very well looked after and the service went without a hitch. More...

Had my 40th Birthday at the Blue Lion on the 2nd March and it was brilliant. I had been in touch with Cheryl for several months beforehand to make sure that the whole event was planned out and that the tech was working! The food was amazing, my guests were constantly telling me how nice it was throughout the evening. It was great to be able to decorate the space and have my own music playlists. Its a very versatile space and I had about 35 guests which worked perfectly in the space. We were there a total of 7 hours and so I think it was great value - no venue hire but a minimum spend on food and drink worked really well for me. Would recommend you host your celebration or party with the Blue Lion - great transport links, friendly staff, delicious food - what more can you ask for? More...
