This very cosy pub close in Hampstead is one of my favorite places in London. Good old style pub with fantastic garden in the summer. Personally I think the restaurant used to be better before the restoration, when they served simple english food (epic hunter's chicken!) but then again the atmosphere now has improved. Staff is nice and price is reasonable for London.

Went for a lovely walk on the Heath and then had a great lunch with friends. Some of the other reviews marked down on service and food but in my opinion you get what you pay for. The menu is good, the quality fine and service with a smile if a little slow. Thumbs up.

I have lived in this area for years and occasionally allow myself to be over ruled to revisit this large establishment. Each visit reaffirms why i am so reluctant to make the return visit. The service. It is downright awful! The staff seem to be poorly trained, lacking any urgency and generally wander around, seemingly looking for things to do, despite an enormous queue forming at the bar. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and depite the frustration of actually placing an order, the food is not bad.
Overall however, dont make this a destination. Fine if you are popping in after a walk on the heath. I suspect most of its clientele fall into this category.
