Walked in at 17:30 on Saturday. It was bustling with people in the front bar area despite a bad weather. The back dining rooms starts at 18:00 but we asked them to let us have a seat despite having a booked table at 19:00. They willingly made a adjustment to accommodate us.

There was also a dining room upstairs. More spacious and lighter!! clean and nicely decorated.

Well what can I say about the holly bush that hasn't already been said. This place holds a lot of memories of Sunday roasts with my family after a long walk on the Heath. It must be listed in some London guide now as its packed with tourists with backpacks ordering coffee.

You can't help but love this place. GreAt for the ale drinks and very cosy on a winters day.more

This place is quintessential Hampstead gastropub with all the old trimmings. It's so authentic you can practically feel the souls of Londoners sitting by the fire and discussing local goings on. The menu consists of pheasant, sausage, đer, beef cheek, mussels, fish and chips, thrice baked potatoes... And beautiful draught ale and cider.

Make the short steep walk to experience the 1807...more

Great old school pub that takes you far away from the hustle and bustle of London, its always nice when a pub has a few rooms and also a nice little outdoor space. You can truly lose track time there and the food isn't bad either, my last meal of fish and chips was one of the finest I've had in London for a long time.more

Difficult to find, tiny out of the way luscious little old pub chocked fill of aged wood and obligatory snugs and nooks and crannies. Beer is Adnams so no problem there. The reverse of hipster and long may it remain so. Haven't tried the food but assuming I can find it again I'll give it a go.more
