The Black Lion Hammersmith


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.

Their 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 ales and lovely fresh food and a fabulous wine list. 

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.
