The Half Moon Rises Over Herne Hill


We're over the moon in Herne Hill.

Closed for almost four years following flood damage from a burst water main, The Half Moon - Herne Hill’s most historic venue - is now finally open for business once more.

After taking the reins last year, we’ve been working to restore the pub to its former glory for nearly 12 months - and when you cross the threshold of this beautiful Grade II listed building, you’ll soon see it’s been worth the wait.

The pub’s famous period features have been preserved and restored, and combine to stunning effect with elegant modern furnishings to create a seriously special setting for dining and drinking.

We’ve also implemented state of the art heating and lighting for the very best of contemporary comfort, and designed an outdoor patio space served by an outdoor bar and kitchen - an area which promises to be one of London’s top suburban drinking spots in summer.

Those who’ve been following the restoration project will also know that the new-look Half Moon boasts 12 beautiful boutique bedrooms.

Each room has been uniquely designed to blend traditional charm with modern luxury, and promises some of the most stylish accommodation in Herne Hill.

The Half Moon Experience

Now fully open and greeting its first guests, The Half Moon serves fresh, seasonal, locally sourced food from breakfast to dinner, seven days a week.

The focus here is on modern British pub food at its best, with Head Chef Mike Blizzard and his team cooking up a range of classic dishes with a contemporary twist.

Alongside all the fabulous food, there’s of course an enticing collection of drinks - the bar well stocked with local beers from the likes of Brixton Brewery, Canopy Brewery and Bullfinch Brewery, as well as all your Fuller’s favourites.

There’s an incredible wine list here too, and a collection of signature house cocktails perfect for the after-work crowd.

Indeed, The Half Moon promises to be a special destination for work parties and group gatherings, offering a range of bespoke packages to suit any occasion.

You can book a space in the pub or restaurant, or hire The Workshop - a stunning rustic function room that’s set to be one of Herne Hill’s favourite venues for private events.
