Fantastic venue and everything well organised for a great night. Can’t thank staff enough. Like being in your favourite boozer with all your mates around. Great location for anyone coming from all parts London/country. Pub caters to everyone, quiet areas to sit in, places to bop, outside for smokers. If I have occasion to have another party for that number if people will def come back there.

Hi Cheryl

Thanks for all your time and patience.
Unfortunately, the venue is a bit too big for my mum’s 80th. But, I’ll definitely keep it in mind for my 50th.

All the best
Jake

Cheryl could not have been more helpful. Communications were easy, clear an d timely


The Blue Lion is a handsome, airy pub with a variety of seating, nooks and crannies, a large central bar and plenty of space to accommodate groups and parties from 2 to 120 people.
