Food

Despite discussing a party involving a DJ, Music is not actually allowed above talking volume past 8pm due to licensing and neighbour issues (including someone with kids living upstairs). Not a party place in my opinion and we feel lied to, 100pc choose another venue if you feel music makes a party. Extremely aggressive staff member cannot handle big crowds. No Aperol, no Dark Rum, No access to courtyard.

I hired The Blue Lion for my 30th birthday party - Cheryl, the owner, and Maria the assistant manager couldn't have been more lovely, helpful and accommodating both in the arrangement of the event and on the night itself. The space is lovely with room for people to sit and chat, dance and play pool - it's also brilliant value for money and you can stay later than at many other venues I looked at (we had to leave by 1.20pm).

Only a very small thing - the pub soundsystem isn't the loudest, particularly if you have a room full of people. Just something to bear in mind if you want dancing to be a big part of your night. But that's a very minor quibble!
