Private Events

It's easy to get to The Red Lion. We are located in beautiful leafy Barnes, just between Putney and Hammersmith, and served very well by local bus routes. The city is within easy reach via the Waterloo overground line while a taxi ride can quickly take you into central London. For those driving, we also have a generously-sized car park, which is locked overnight.

Although we do not have any separate designated rooms for functions, we will gladly offer a part of the pub, which can hold up to 150 people for an informal buffet or 40-50 persons for a sit down meal. We also offer our beautiful garden and covered decked area up for private functions with your own bespoke garden bar and BBQ area. OR, for even bigger parties, there is the potential to hire the whole pub.

The Red Lion is the perfect place to hold a party or group event. Make a booking by phone, email or in person, and we'll be happy to discuss your individual requirements.

Red Lion rear area

At the back of the pub, we can reserve a private area exclusively for you, your clients or your friends. The back area holds up to 150 people, or alternatively, can be arranged to accommodate 40-50 for a sit-down meal. It's the ideal space for more formal occasions.

Garden Bar & BBQ

The ideal spot for a big summer party, our garden has room for up to 300 people (or 150 seated). Enjoy fresh air, summer sun and even your own private outdoor bar and BBQ. It's the best function room in Barnes - without technically being a room at all!

Red Lion Entire Pub

For events with a big guest list, why not hire the entire pub? A stylish venue in a lovely area, The Red Lion is a truly special place to celebrate big occasions. Talk to us today to find out more about what packages we can put together for your event.
