Seasonal Menu

All our food is freshly prepared and cooked on site in our kitchen. We like to straddle the line between offering pub classics done really well and exciting new seasonal dishes which change frequently.

Our Bar Selection

There is a real passion for quality throughout our pub from the five daily changing ales to the extensive wine list and wide selection of spirits. We also have our seasonal specials from jugs of fruity cocktails in the summer to mulled wines and hot toddy’s in the winter.

About us

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.
