messing about by the river
The Black Lion is an iconic country pub on the north bank of the River Thames between Hammersmith and Chiswick. History abounds at this wonderful pub – ghost stories, local history and what ‘The Black Lion’ really meant, made famous in literature and the location of a world famous skittle alley.
Our aim is to be a hub in the local community and a comfortable pitstop for any tourists or passers by. Always warm and welcoming, The Black Lion combines the tradition of a classic English pub with superb English and British ale, lovely fresh food and a fabulous wine list. We all grew up and have lived in the area for many years and have known the pub as customers long before we became lucky enough to take over at the helm!
And once a year we are the very best place – along the whole of the Thames to view the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. Click here to find out about our huge boat race party.
