Everyone’s welcome in our village pub

Special Events

Throughout the year, we pull out all the stops to host special event nights. Our events include live music, beer festivals, family quizzes and a night at the races. We’d love you to see us as the venue of choice for a Valentines or Mother’s Day meal. Learn more here.

Waddesdon Wedding Venue

Catering for wedding parties of between 30 and 250 guests, we offer the personal service that you desire on your wedding day. We don’t have a standard wedding package, as we’re keen to tailor our offer to your bespoke requirements and budget, so come and tell us what you want. Learn more here.

Where to Find Us

The Lion sits in the heart of Waddesdon, on the main High Street. We’re on the left if you are driving along the A41 from Bicester or on the right if you’ve come from Aylesbury. Drive through the entrance to access our large car park at the rear of the pub.
