We first stumbled across this pub after walking on Hampstead Heath. The beer garden is lovely on a summer's day. We went back a few weeks later with a group of friends for lunch. Unfortuneately the weather was not kind and we retreated indoors. The dining area has a lovely open feel with the glass conservatory-style ceiling, however due to the size of our group (14) we could only find room in the Hampstead Room, which is colder and darker.
We had a range of meals and everyone enjoyed theirs with the exception of myself and a friend who had ordered the mexican chicken salad. We didn't feel like this meal had as much thought or care as the other meals served at the table and ingredients seemed to be skimped on.
Service was ok, though our dishes weren't cleared from the table – so we ended up changing tables. The bar-staff were lacking,with one staff member breaking a glass while polishing it and then proceeding to use the same teatowel to polish the next glass. Another refused to admit that there was dust in the glass we'd received some of our wine in, insisting it was sediment.
I'll go here again to take advantage of the beer garden, but not for meals with such a large group.
