We like to throw in a few little surprises every now and then, so follow us on social media to be the first to know! @leytonstonetavern

We love a party! If you've got a special event coming up, or simply just fancy a get together with family and friends, come and have a chat with us, we'd love to help. Choose from The Woodhouse, The Greenhouse or The Summerhouse/Winter Cabin & Garden for your event (or all three!), with a food offering to suit - from light bites, to sharing bowls, to seated dining. We've had a fun summer with surprise birthdays, BBQ parties, first birthdays, private dining and our very first wedding! Let's keep it up!

Jazz, Poetry & Storytelling
6 Sep 2019
We were really proud to be a host venue for Leytonstone Festival performers Sue and Jane and their band. They took over The Woodhouse room and it came alive with music, storytelling and audience sing-a-alongs. It was truly interesting & uplifting. We will be having them back for sure...

Leytonstone Arts Trail
6 Jul 2019 - 14 Jul 2019
Every year, @leytonstonearts hold Leytonstone Arts Trail, turning all the spaces and venues into galleries. We were thrilled to be exhibiting @saraharte11 ‘Over & Above’ collection.
Sarah describes these as ‘surveillance paintings’. Where you’re starring at people that can’t see you. Sarah usually captures her subjects looking down from a bridge. We don’t see them close up, they just pass us by. Sarah says this reflects every day Urban Living, where we see the same people passing us every day, but we don’t know them or stop at speak to them - evoking a feeling of detachment and intimacy. In the paintings, the viewer gets to be the spy and form their own opinion of who that person is and where they are going.
The collection really resonated with us. Each of us saw ourselves or someone we know going about their day in urban life.
This is Sarah’s first time in the trail as a solo artist - she has kindly said we can hold onto her collection for a little longer, so her work is still here if you'd like to see it. And it's available to buy.
See more on her website.

Meet The Brewer – Howling Hops
7 Jun 2019
Our first Meet The Brewer night was hosted by Hackney’s Howling Hops. They brought something for everyone with their eight Tap Takeover - from dinner and pudding ales, to lager and sour beers. They even kept the ‘cask v keg’ discussion alive by bringing their Pale XX on both! Chef added in some interesting food pairings to truly treat the taste buds.
Next one is being planned…watch this space..
Little Taverner’s Club

Bank Hol Beats
25 May 2019
Following the love for our Beers from The Borough DJ, @tomduvalmusic returned to ease us into the next Bank Holiday weekend with some Soulful Funk. As he describes, ‘Soulful, Groovy and packed with Funk’. Playing out in the garden, he set us up perfectly for the long weekend, playing an amazing 6 hour set that took us from the afternoon into the night. There were some good garden vibes that night!
Beers from the Borough
4 May 2019
We were so excited to host our first ever Craft Beer Festival. As part of Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019, we featured Waltham Forest only breweries – WildCard, Pretty Decent, Signature, East London Brewing, Neckstamper, Pillars and Nirvana. It was a real celebration of local beer. We opened the garden for the first time, had the BBQ going and a DJ playing. Of course, being a Bank Holiday weekend, we saw four seasons in a day – which just made the vibe even better – seeing locals pitching in to hold up the Gazebo in a downpour and the pub heaving!
11 Apr 2019 - 18 Apr 2019
Over Easter, we held our first ever Little Taverner’s clubs. We kicked things off high tempo with JingleBop - a fun, interactive music and movement group for parents and babies/toddlers. Next we moved onto our very first craft club, hosted by ‘Imagine & Create’ - individual and group crafts for children. And finally, local ceramics café, Creative Biscuit, rounded off the holidays with an Easter themed ceramics painting session.
30 Mar 2019
We felt our local Mums deserved a whole weekend! So we put on a special Afternoon tea on the Saturday, as well as Sunday family roasts. Served in The Woodhouse room, we followed a classic menu of homemade delights, including dainty finger sandwiches, sweet pastries and scones with clotted cream and jam.
