About The Black Lion

Located in the heart of West Hampstead The Black Lion aims to offer great food & drink, served in a relaxed & friendly style. We have a large split level back garden which benefits from the sun setting over it in the evening. As well as a front terrace. Real ales are important to The Black Lion so there will be plenty of choice from some of Britain’s best loved ales. Due to licencing restrictions we don’t allow children in the pub after 8pm.


Our modern British menu changes monthly, and we have an popular bar menu which runs all day.

Our garden BBQ will be on this Saturday and Sunday from 12pm-5pm/6pm-9.30pm
