Atmosphere comes by the bucket-load here at The Sir Richard Steele, an attention grabbing pub and restaurant in the upmarket London neighbourhood of Belsize Park. A sturdy Victorian landmark, The Sir Richard Steele has, during its long lifetime, amassed a collection of weird and wonderful objet d’art, antiquities and other paraphernalia that make it seem almost part museum as you dine beneath a wall mounted antique bicycle, watched over by a host of nameless historical figures and surrounded by ceiling frescoes, row upon row of old books and pub advertisements. Outside a patio area provides pleasant al fresco dining while the inside is an unbeatably cosy space, ideal for after work drinks or laid back Sunday afternoons. The Sir Richard Steele not only offers the best of beers and wines but a comprehensive menu of sharing boards and tapas-style dishes alongside a range of pub favourite mains combining British heartiness and a splash of European sophistication.

Unfortunately my 10 minutes experience of this pub was limited to standing at the bar trying to get served before deciding to leave and go somewhere else. Most people in there seemed to be trying to get served with bar staff wondering around in a daze. OK, it was the weekend but still...
It looked like a nice pub though with some character so I will give it 3 stars rather than 2 even though...more
Talk about an underdog, just a stone's throw from possibly the most annoying pub street in the universe is a decent pub with lots of space, two fireplaces, a garden and an odd dog or two.
I happened to make the walk down when my after-work local was unexpectedly closed and was glad I did, the RIchard Steele is a bit cuter and much more reasonably priced than some of the things up towards...more
This place is fantastic. While traveling in London from the States, we stayed with a friend of ours who had just moved to the city one week prior, and I can definitely tell you that we helped him discover his new "local".
Sir Remington Steele (as we nicknamed it) has a really fun casual atmosphere with super friendly people, from staff to clientele. They have an awesome beer and cider...more
Not quite worth the full five stars given but getting close.
Proper pub, busy, mixed crowd, reasonably priced, decent drink selection and good music. Happily have a pint or ten here.more
This is my favorite of the neighborhood pubs and wouldn't voluntarily go elsewhere. Plenty of nooks and crannies to stand or sit, warm fireplace and deep leather chairs. I think the rowdy element was there but it only added to the ambience, since the acoustics kept the fighting talk from spreading. Oh, the place was huuuge.more
