About The Lady Ottoline

This cosy and romantic pub - found on a quiet corner of Bloomsbury - is a charming choice for your wedding day and can offer everything from exclusive hire through to intimate private dining rooms for smaller celebrations. The venue itself is named after Lady Ottoline Morrell, society hostess and patron of the Bloomsbury Historical Group - a collection of writers, artists and philosophers from the early 20th-Century - which just adds to the elegance and charm of this wedding location.

The picture-perfect pub has a choice of areas for hire that would be ideal for your special day. If you are hosting an intimate wedding day for up to 14 people then The Morrell Room would be perfect. This private dining room is flooded with natural light in the summer and can be romantically lit by candlelight in the winter. Larger parties may prefer to hire the dining room on the first floor which can seat up to 40 guests for a sit down dinner. The venue is also licensed for ceremonies if you wish to book a local registrar.

This pretty little pub in Bloomsbury has a warm and friendly wedding planning team who will not only help with the logistics of the day, they will also be on hand to help you create bespoke drinks packages and menu choices so you and your guests can celebrate with a wedding breakfast that perfectly represents you as a couple. You can also explore some of The Lady Ottoline’s most highly regarded wedding suppliers, including a local Bloomsbury florist and the head chef of their sister-site who makes the most spectacular wedding cakes.
