Description: Welcome to The Garden Gate, the front door to the best alfresco fun in north London. Our beer garden is one of the city's finest, while inside is pretty inspiring, too. This 19th century pub has a long tradition of accommodating weary walkers and lovely locals from Hampstead Heath, and today we're doing it in style with fresh, home-cooked pub food, a stunning choice of speciality drinks and an ultra-relaxed atmosphere.

“BEAUTIFUL GARDEN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Happened upon this pub on a lovely sunny afternoon and the garden is absolutely gorgeous. Interior of pub attractive too. The service was really friendly and efficient - in a very very busy pub. Food choices were not vast but what we ate was very good - will re-visit if we ever return to this area.

“Great Sunday Lunch - with the dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Made a last minute booking here and had a great Sunday lunch.
Staf were really friendly even though it was very busy.
They also have lots of other food and a BBQ as well as the Sunday lunch. So plenty for everyone.
Starters crab, and makerel were both great.
Pork mains were delicious. And the desert great.
And dogs are very welcome, which helps as the heath is so close.
Highly recommended

“Beautiful Beer Garden Setting - Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We traveled to England for a wedding and all met up at the Garden Gate Beer Garden for beers and dinner. Great assortment of beers, of course, and we all had fish and chips. We loved the meal, the beer and the location. Friendly servers, decently priced, nice garden patio setting. Not much else to say.

“Warm Welcome at the Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Popular with the locals the Garden Gate is right in the heart of Hampstead Village. They do a pretty good selection of beers, ales and ciders topped up with a good food menu. We had a chicken caesar which was great and salmon fishcakes which were packed with salmon and very hearty. I asked for salad with my fishcakes which wasn't what was available on the menu and they were happy to accommodate. When it came the salad was a mix of leaves with all sorts of goodies with them such as spring onions and peppers. The average meal is approx £10 with steaks at £17. On hot weekends they barbecue out back and serve a great selection of burgers. One of the nicest things about the Garden Gate though is the staff, they have staff from a wide array of places working for them who are all really polite and helpful, they are happy to let you try anything on tap before you buy and quick to make a good food recommendations.

This Bar / Restaurant is perfectly located next to Hampstead heath park. They have one of my favorite beers on tap from Cheq called Kozel.
The outside garden seating area is also fantastic for nice sunny days.
Yesterday I ate the roast pork belly, it was Fantastic. Really hit the spot.
