Been here twice now and both times felt very unwelcome. Thought the first time we may have caught them on an off night so gave benefit of the doubt but second time was exactly the same. Lovely location and building, maybe a bit too geared towards food inside but the staff seem very intrested in themselves and tend to only like serving "Hampstead" types

Still rubbish...

I spent many years visiting this pub enduring its painfully slow service from the mid-1980s up until its refurb in the late-2000s and was generally happy with it - nothing special, just a better-than-average (streets ahead of the miserable Duke of Hamilton up the road) sleepy back street boozer with a precocious (male) cat called Buffy and pre-fame local Ricky Gervaise for company along with a decent pub quiz.

It's now basically a restaurant. The eclectic interior has gone; the interior's left and right thirds are reserved exclusively for diners whilst the central third, half of which is dominated by the much shortened bar (with a dramatically reduced beer selection), is for drinkers, i.e. about enough space for four people huddled around a table.

In short, this is no longer a pub: avoid if you fancy a drink.

There used to be a very nice local pub in this location. Not sure if it's current incarnation qualifies it for inclusion on this website - It's not a pub, bar or club - it's a restaurant. The night we were there it was full of self satisfied 'investment' types and up-their-own-orifice Americans in love with the sound of their own droning voices.
The Disneyfication of Hampstead seems pretty complete now, with only the surly Duke hanging on - but who knows for how long?
