The Spaniards in Hampstead dates from around 1585 and remains full of fascinating features. Some say Dick Turpin watched carriages go by from this legendary inn as he waited to rob them, while others talk about Keats, Shelly and Byron writing over a claret or two, and Charles Dickens including the pub in his Pickwick Papers novel.Read more4 out of 5 Based on 32 reviews Yelp Reviews
