Execellent vibe, location and decor. Very inviting inside and out yet only one problem.... Food and service just aren't that good. Suffice to say there is a delta between the two. Took the family to dinner there recently and was very disappointed. Kids meals were an absolute joke (who douses chicken for kids with 2 tons of pepper and the pizza was an appetizer at best for the price). Would I...more

If you're planning to spend your afternoon walking in Hampstead Heath, this place makes a a great pitstop for a pint or a glass of prosseco. Sun's out?

We only stayed for one drink, but it's a nice place and staff seem friendly. Not perhaps somewhere where I would go for a ballsy...more

This is my favorite pub in London ...

although I suppose to be completely fair I would need to eat and drink in the remaining 12,350 I haven't been to.l

But I have been to quite a few and this is my favorite - by far.

Strangely, it appears in no guides to restaurants, guides to pubs or travel guides - despite the fact that the room and the pub are both superb.

There are MANY London...more
