The Flask

The Flask, Hampstead is a treasure of a Victorian pub (with a history all the way back to the Medieval ages), promising plenty of character and a sun-trap conservatory that is ideal for kicking back in. Refuel after a day spent walking on the heath with comfort food and Young's ales or local beer.

The Stag

When it comes to the best pubs in Hampstead for food, The Stag springs to mind. With over 60 different beers from across the globe, it's definitely in the running on the drinks front too. If craft brews aren't your thing, there's a great range of other tipples to try with your grub, especially when the sun's out and they get the BBQ going.

The Garden Gate

After the best dog-friendly Hampstead Heath pubs? The Garden Gate has pork belly, nut numbers and more to choose between for Sunday, alongside a classic menu the rest of the week too. Swill your meal down the hatch with Belgian fruit beers, regional IPAs and English potato vodka, or make your way to the garden in summer with your pooch.

The Wrestlers

If you exit Hampstead Heath's vast green space out the north side, you'll find The Wrestlers sitting pretty near Highgate High Street. A staple on the city's scene since 1547, it's got an original fireplace, wood-panelled walls, stained glass windows and more across a cosy, traditional space.

The Spaniards Inn

Said to be the place where Keats penned his famous Ode to a Nightingale, this romantic 16th century inn is the perfect place to head after a morning ramble across the heath. The Spaniards Inn is arguably home to the best pub lunch in Hampstead, alongside an extensive range of speciality beers, ales and ciders.

Holly Bush

Taking old fashioned pub-keeping very seriously, The Holly Bush, Hampstead is a traditional Grade II listed watering hole in every sense of the word. Expect classic grub and Fuller's real ale, all served up in front of a roaring fire among leather seating and dark wood furnishings.
