Why not enjoy your first dance in the middle of Leadenhall Market and have a live band outside.

Then head upstairs to our first floor Dining room has fantastic views of Leadenhall Market and can seat up to 80 for formal sit-down wedding breakfast or 100 for buffet/canapés.

Our daughter had her wedding reception here at The Lamb. A great venue as the City is very quiet at the weekend. The food was excellent and the staff were particularly attentive. After the wedding breakfast we spilt out into the covered market for live music, ending up with dancing through to the small hours in the basement, Old Tom's. A truly great venue for a wedding reception.
Di and I would like to thank all the great staff that helped make Ali and Rachel's wedding day so special last weekend. Everybody had a wonderful time and that was, in no small part, because of the enthusiasm, happiness and professionalism of everyone working there. Thank you all so much. We will definitely recommend as a great venue with a first class team.

We wanted a relaxed and informal wedding reception and from beginning to end the staff at the Lamb Tavern made our wedding day truly enjoyable. Organising the food, drink and layout of the pub was effortless thanks to the dedicated events planner who was on hand to answer all our queries. Our guests were all very impressed with the picture perfect surroundings of Leadenhall Market. We arrived at the pub, walking through the market to a sight of waiting staff lined up with trays of prosecco next to tables with crisp white linen tablecloths - this was an amazing scene and set the standard for the rest of the day, the food that accompanied the reception drinks was outstanding also. Particular favourites being the mini fish & chips and scotch eggs! The wedding breakfast was exceptional with everyone commenting on the high quality. Old Tom's bar in the basement was the perfect area for the DJ to set up - it was great to have a separate space to host the evening activities and was the perfect size. We thoroughly enjoyed our day, as did our guests. The staff at the Lamb Tavern were calm and relaxed and everything just happened seamlessly without us having to do a thing. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Lamb to anyone.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for all your efforts on Saturday for our Wedding. Debs had a day of days, which when all is said and done is what its all about. I hardly realised that you and the rest of the team where even there on Saturday, which is exactly how I envisaged it, so once again thank you for that, by your efforts you managed to make an already amazing day perfect.
Adie & Debs
Thank you so much! We had such an amazing time on Saturday - everything was perfect, and you, Tony & the team were fantastic. I did say to the lady who was running The Fox & Anchor was also lovely - shame we couldn't stay to enjoy it longer! Thanks again - it was a perfect day, and that was in no small part due to you guys. Best wishes Laura

The Lamb Tavern was the perfect choice for our relaxed and relatively informal wedding reception and party. It's a classic Victorian pub set in the very photograph friendly Leadenhall Market and our guests were all impressed with the location. The Lamb gives you lots of flexibility with the space: we had a buffet meal on the mezzanine floor and our cake-cutting on the ground floor, which worked really well. Our drinks reception was mostly out in the market itself, which made it very elegant. Later on we had a series of friends DJ-ing the dancing downstairs, (and the groom played out the night!). Tom, Meadhbh and the rest of the team were calm, relaxed and extremely helpful - all good things for a couple who had never organised anything like this before! We wanted vegetarian food and a buffet meal, and we had a couple of other dietary restrictions too. They helped us think through a menu and costs. On the day itself, they had put out patio heaters and rugs for guests sitting outside (9 April was not that warm as it turned out!) and later on brought furniture inside so guest could eat more comfortably. Clearly an experienced and thoughtful events team. The food and drink were lovely and the service was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our day, as did our guests. If you're looking for an attractive venue to hold a party or reception that you can make your own and to reflect your own personalities, I recommend The Lamb.

From the moment we laid eyes on the Lamb Tavern venue for our wedding reception to the moment the last call was called at the bar on the actual day Sam and I knew we had made the right choice for our celebrations. The Lamb Tavern and the Leadenhall Market are both without a doubt iconic venues for a London wedding, and both do not disappoint in any way.
The Leadenhall lends itself well to spectacular photos all under the perfect cover should it rain and the Lamb Tavern is a venue that utilises space to the maximum and it is so traditional and well kept that decorations are not needed. The fluidity of the wedding day celebrations from the market to the dinning room, the dinning room to the market, the market to Old Tom's bar is perfect for ensuring all of your guests are entertained to the MAX! An added bonus at our wedding and our favourite memory was when everyone was on their feet in the marketplace dancing to 'Livin' on a Prayer' whilst brave ladies took on the Moonwalk challenge and walked through the Leadenhall Market raising money for Breast Cancer Care. We cheered them on and they cheered us on! However, enough about the venue because it speaks for itself on view alone. The best part of the Lamb Tavern is the team who work there, they are what make this venue perfect for a celebration.
From start to finish the team were attentive, they listened and worked with us on the elements of our day that mattered the most to us. Most of all they combined the best years of their experience to ensure our day went off without a hitch. They smiled the whole way through and never waived in providing support when requests were made. The bar staff kept everyone happy, the chefs perfected a specifically selected meal, the waiting staff were courteous and helpful and the event organisers kept everything running smoothly and even joined in. Our day was perfect, we could not have asked for more and would not have wished for more. Our thanks do not seem enough to give, but its all we have. THANK YOU!

We searched for months for the perfect pub for our winter wedding reception, and eventually stumbled upon Leadenhall Market and the Lamb Tavern. We instantly knew it was the place for us. It's an amazing setting, under the historic market, and the pub itself is cosy yet spacious, being split over several levels. The basement club was the icing on the cake, a really cool space and perfect for dancing. Amy made organising everything really easy, and seemed to keep things running smoothly on the day with ease. Finally, the food!! The food was amazing, and all our guests commented on it; way nicer than other wedding food I've eaten (I work in the wedding industry so have eaten a lot!). If you're looking for a relaxed pub wedding reception in London, I can highly recommend The Lamb.
Louise & Eddie
Of all the decisions we made when planning our wedding, choosing to have the reception at The Lamb Tavern was the best. The venue is beautiful, obviously, but they were so friendly and helpful that planning the day was as stress-free as possible. I was also amazed at how accommodating they were, even when we wanted to do ridiculous things like turn Old Tom's Bar into a retro games room and have a full on pub quiz during the evening! The food was delicious, the staff were brilliant, and the whole day was absolutely wonderful. I'm only sad that we won't be able to get married there again.
Amy and Garry Jones
I just wanted to tell you that even now, people are talking about how fantastic our champagne reception was in Leadenhall Market. Everybody raved about the canapés (although they had sadly all gone by the time John and I got there!) and it has lasted as the favourite part of the day for the majority of our guests! I think it really takes something special to follow a ceremony in the Tower of London, so it is a great testimony to the service we received from everyone at the Lamb Tavern, thank you so much for that!
We are back in the city for a couple of weddings this Spring, so will definitely try pop in for a reminisce and a pint!
We had such a wonderful time at The Lamb Tavern. And hope these photos are of use to you. We look forward to planning more family events in the future with you. We had a fantastic time at the Lamb, and our guests are still talking about it now! I was really impressed, and very grateful, for the time and trouble that you and your staff went to for us.
Very Best Wishes,
Alexa and Dave
Alexa and I married at St Olave's Church on 31st November 2013, and held our drinks reception at the Lamb Tavern, a few minutes walk through the city at night, and into the Leadenhall Market, decorated for Christmas. One of many very happy memories from the day was turning the corner into the market and seeing the Lamb Tavern, open and lit, and Tony and his team waiting for us outside. As our party appeared, they swung into action!
We and our guests had a fantastic time at the Lamb. Tony went to great lengths to ensure that we had the event that we wanted, from a (very generous!) wine tasting session, to arranging delicious spiced roast chestnuts (which we gorged on) and responding rapidly and efficaciously as the event developed (for example, as our guests rapidly drank everything that had been laid on and more had to be brought up.) The pub was beautifully decorated and lit, our music was playing through the sound system; and the food which we had was thoughtfully hand crafted and delicious. The only problem, in the end, was getting our guests to leave! It should speak of the quality and success of the event that we arrived forty-five minutes late to our evening reception.
Our guests still speak about our event at the Lamb, and we use it whenever we are up in town. We will be back again, and I sincerely recommend Tony and his team at the Lamb to anyone looking for a comfortable, accommodating and characterful event experience. We will definitely be in for a drink soon, and will ask for you.
We're really glad we picked The Lamb for our wedding reception venue. It was really easy working with them to plan the day and nothing was too much trouble. On the day the staff ensured everything ran smoothly and that everyone was looked after. Many of our guests have commented on how good the food was and Leadenhall Market looks stunnning in our wedding photos. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Lamb to friends having a London wedding.
David and Gina Miller
A huge thank you for making our wedding day truly amazing! From our very first discussion at the wedding fair in Islington Town Hall we knew that this was the perfect venue for us. The Lamb Tavern is exactly what we were looking for: a very elegant and historical pub in the heart of London, with great food and a laid back atmosphere. We had decided a long time ago to have a wedding cocktail party, instead of a seated dinner. Therefore, we could not imagine a better location than the stunning Leadenhall Market.
Tony, it meant a lot to us that you were so efficient with planning. Thank you for putting our minds at rest about everything. We really felt that we could count on you and, indeed, you did everything we asked for. And everything was exactly as you had told us (if not better!). On the day, all members of staff were fantastic (very professional, courteous and friendly). And the food! The food was excellent (classic british, very sophisticated, freshly prepared, and delicious). We really appreciate the fact that your chef took into consideration everything that we had asked for during our tasting menu.
It was a magical day for us. Many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thank you for making this possible.
All the best

P.S. So kind of you that you had a card and a bottle of champagne waiting for us at the bar when we came the next day!
We had our wedding reception at The Lamb Tavern only a few weeks ago, and had a fantastic time. The market is beautiful for pictures and the Lamb has a really warm, welcoming atmosphere that put all our guests instantly at ease. At every point, the staff there were helpful, accommodating and friendly. With so many different areas to utilise, you can really tailor the spaces to any ideas you might have. I would recommend the Lamb Tavern unreservedly.
Having our reception at The Lamb Tavern was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. They really went above and beyond our expectations in making sure everything about our reception was perfect. From the delicious food, to the beautiful decorations and amazing staff, it all made the evening that much more special. We would highly recommend The Lamb Tavern to anyone looking for a wonderfully unique venue in central London.
My husband and I wanted to drop you a quick line to say a massive thank you for your support in making our wedding party at The Lamb Tavern so special. The event went perfectly and you guys couldn't have been more accommodating to our every need for the night. Our friends were so impressed with the venue and I'm sure it'll be a talking point for many years to come! Thanks again and we wish The Lamb Tavern team all the best for the future.
I would like to say a very big thank you to you and all your team for all your hard work yesterday. You helped to make our evening special and run so smoothly. It was wonderful and we had a fantastic time. The canapés and food were all perfect as well.
Please pass our thanks and compliments on to the whole team.
Debbie & Richard
Big thank you for making everything run smoothly on Saturday. We had a great evening, and everyone said that they absolutely loved the food!
All the best,
James and Mark
Just to say a big thank you for a wonderful evening on Saturday.
Lots of happy guests and many comments on the food in particular which went down really well.
Rachel and Tony
The team at the Lamb Tavern couldn’t have been more helpful on our big day and worked really hard to ensure everything went without a hitch. The staff were all super friendly & well organised by supervisors who really knew how to run an event properly. Amy (The events manager) took the time to meet with us on several occasions in advance of the day in order to understand exactly what we wanted, she was very accommodating and nothing was too much effort.
We had a really fantastic time; our guests raved about the food and we would not hesitate to recommend the Lamb Tavern to anyone thinking about having a private event there, just a fantastic venue in an incredible setting.
Thanks a million!
James & Jemma Shanks
Huge thanks to all the delightful staff for making our night so great. The food was amazing. The Lamb Tavern has all the special ingredients for a wonderful event.
The team at The Lamb went over and above to give us a dreamy wedding day. We had rather specific ideas of what we wanted and they were so accommodating and worked hard to make sure everything was perfect. Our friends and family still talk about how perfect the venue was - it really was the star of the show for everyone. One of my favourite memories from the night was seeing the staff collapsing in laughter as our guests danced wildly to Metallica! Perfect!
The wedding was everything we ever wanted; relaxed, informal, non traditional, beautiful & fun. All our guests said how beautiful the pub & Leadenhall market was. We was given free reign to decorate and style the pub how we wanted. The staff were amazing, they set up the venue perfectly on the day and the whole day ran without a hitch! We have to thank them for catering our Vegan wedding, the food was absolutely delicious and everyone commented on it. Its hard to find a venue in the heart of London that looks stunning, with a relaxed atmosphere and that doesn’t break the bank. We want to re hire the whole thing for our wedding anniversary one day and relive the whole experience. We are so glad we chose the venue - BEST DAY EVER! Anyway we just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you all. The day was perfect. We honestly had the best day ever. You all worked so hard & we really appreciate it. Everyone said how lovely Leadenhall Market and The Lamb Tavern was. Im so glad we chose the venue,it was the relaxed informal fun wedding we had always imagined it to be.
We could not be any more delighted and impressed with the team at The Lamb Tavern. We immediately fell in love with the place and we hoped that it would provide a unique and beautiful backdrop to our big day. What we had not anticipated was just how much of an impression it made on our guests, who loved the pub's character just as much as we did. What really made our day, though, was the kindness, hospitality and warmth of the team who put in all the hard work ahead of the day; made our 'vision' for the day a reality; and could not have done more for us or any of our guests all throughout the day and night. It was an absolute pleasure to have you at our wedding - you truly made it the happiest day of our lives.

Matt and I would like to thank you for hosting the most perfect wedding breakfast and reception on Saturday. Words can't express our gratitude and everyone said the wedding food was the best they had ever had. Everything from the decor to the service was perfect and we will remember our day fondly. Thank you so much!!!
Kirsty & Matt
Our guests thought it was one of the best weddings they have ever attended. The ambience of The Lamb Tavern was ideal for a social feel to the proceedings. The personal feel of the service was fantastic for the wedding breakfast. Bringing plates with a personal serving was just superb. The dining room makes just such an awesome feel for a wedding reception. We were able to host a great band outside the venue and old times bar was such a great party atmosphere for the evening reception - can't fault it. Superb!
