Located on Holborn Hill and split over three floors, The Fable is a fashionable London venue ideal for couples planning to host their ceremony at another venue or in one of the many nearby churches. Sitting on one of the four grand pillars of the Holborn Viaduct, The Fable can be accessed from either the ground floor below the bridge or up on the third floor.

As with all Drake & Morgan venues in the City of London, chic wooden floors cover the ground level and high ceiling beams show off industrial piping. A lengthy bar clad in geometric wooden carvings and lined with hexagonal linoleum meets the wooden floor. Here, guests can sample a variety of local beers, ales and handcrafted cocktails. The ground level is spectacularly suited to seated dinners of up to 220 guests with its uninterrupted curving space and large, bright windows. Sunlight filters through the floor to ceiling glass panels and botanical foliage hangs in the mezzanine area above. Indoor plants grace every available surface, creating a green and airy space within the heart of London.

Up one flight of stairs, further seating and a polished concrete bar accompany one of The Fable’s many eccentricities. A cosy alcove created from hardcover books also envelopes a studded booth, which is a book lover’s dream for cute couple photographs on their wedding day. Around the corner and tucked in a black tiled, striped floor room, a freestanding clawfoot bathtub is thrown into the mix for further wild wedding picture opportunities. 

Pages from storybooks cover the walls of the stairwell up to the third level where you and 300 wedding guests can live up to London’s nightlife reputation. Accessible through a private entrance and with an exclusive bar, the top floor of The Fable can be hired separately from the rest of the venue if required. Palm leaf wallpaper, geometric light clusters, smooth ceilings and a subtly elevated dance floor gives the third level a disco edge and is guaranteed to shift the mood from dinner to dancing on your wedding night.

The service was very friendly and they were great with our requests. The food was really nice and the drink was good. There was a good atmosphere all afternoon and evening. Highly recommend coming here and will be coming back soon.

Wedding was top! Staff lovely and quick to serve, and lovely cocktails! They know what they're doing and work hard. He food we had was really nice, I really liked the chocolate caramel tart. Excellent space for a wedding thanks to the 3 floors they have and a lovely bright space too.

We had our wedding reception at The Fable in September this year - I think we were their first big wedding reception (90 people) and it was great! We mainly chose it for it's location (we got married at St Bartholomew's and stayed at The Malmaison Hotel), decor, food options and it was budget friendly! Having got in touch with Sophie in February just as it opened - she was always prompt to reply and helpful, I had lots of questions as I just kept remembering things and naturally with a wedding their are changes. We had a food and wine tasting and were just as impressed with the samples that we got as with the food on the day I am pleased to say. So many of our guests said how great the food was, right through from starter to our evening canapes. Anca was also such a help in the run up, making sure we felt like everything was going to run smoothly and on the day was always about when we needed to check something....or when we turned up with a Tandem as a surprise present! We had our reception across the downstairs and mezzanine, so we could use the mezzanine for evening guests arrivals, a space to go for tea/coffee after the meal so the fable team could set up for the evening dancing etc. Thank you to the whole team who made our day so memorable and run so smoothly!

What a great find. This place is a perfect balance between an upmarket restaurant with some classic 'pub grub' style. Good value. Good food. Good service. Good setting. What more could you want? I'd go back.

Absolutely adored this place. The atmosphere is unique and the design modern. I especially like the table with the books around it. Recommended place and excellent location.

We cannot thank yourself and the whole team at The Fable enough for the WONDERFUL support you provided that helped ensure the most fantastic wedding weekend for Stella and I. From our earliest meetings with The Fable, we were reassured that everything would not only go smoothly, but a celebration would be provided that would be remembered for years to come. On speaking to numerous wedding guests since last Saturday... it is clear that this objective was certainly achieved! Every aspect of the wedding reception went swimmingly, and your kind and considerate staff executed their responsibilities expertly! We are so grateful. Thank you again, and we will certainly be revisiting The Fable in the years to come with the most happy memories

We just want to say that we had the most PERFECT, wonderful, seamless and enjoyable day!! We never ever expected it to go the way it went - and it's all down to you guys at The Fable. The service was just incredible, the food was so tasty (our guests would not stop talking about the food!!) and Abi was just an absolute legend. Totally in control and NOTHING was a bother for her. A lot of our guests, during the day and after, are saying how it has been the best reception they've ever been to. I honestly think a lot of it boils down to The Fable... So from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! You Charlotte have been so great from the moment I came into the venue to check it out last year, nothing ever being a problem and you always being so prompt and efficient to answer any questions we had. We would love others to know just how perfect this venue is for a fun, exciting and perfect London wedding.

The day went perfectly, and was exactly what we wanted. The food was great and we have to say that Abi and the staff were brilliant- everything was so organised and it ran like clockwork. A huge number of guests told us they couldn't believe how good the venue was and how attentive the staff were, which is really great. We'd also like to say a massive thank you to you [Charlotte] personally too, you've been great in helping us organise the day and you've been so flexible in meeting all of our requests!
