Used to enjoy the quiz nights as it involved mostly Irish nurses who didn't know a great deal so was easy to win. The paddling pool parties were pretty epic ... well ... until one of the aforementioned nurses decided she couldn't be bothered to walk to the toilet & actually **** in the paddling pool. :(

I've been going to this pub since it was the Lion. Now it's been done up and seemed to be nice enough when we first went back. However, today we had a really bad experience there and we won't be going back. We sat down at a table and were there for some time before being told that the table was actually reserved. There were reserved signs on a few other tables but not this one. Basically the manager had forgotten to put a sign on our table, and tried to shift us into a much smaller space where we would be really cramped. We said were weren't happy and were basically told tough luck. The word 'sorry' was spoken, but clearly not with any genuine feeling.

only problem with this place is that the bar isnt big enough to accomodate the number of people it can hold leading to long waiting time at the bar.

nice outdoor area out back, split on 2 levels.

all in all a very nice place to drink, atmosphere friendly and lively without being overbearing.

one of the better options to drink in west hampstead and one to check out if not been before
