Another local – you cant move for the abundance of gastropubs in North London, and this is one of the goodies.
The Wells is a lot more posh than my other favourites up North. The pub lives in a leafy Hampstead street where one can only dream of residing in (4 storey properties and the like). There is seating outside, as well as upstairs – but the downstairs has no booking policy. It tends to get busy with the walkers, plus dogs are welcome, so its even more lovely in my opinion.
Foodwise – delicious. I again went for the simple burger choice but it was lovely and meaty – as a simple dish like this should be. It came with homemade coleslaw and probably some of the best chips id had in a long while. It costed around the £8 mark so not extortionate. My companion had the roast – and this was huge. At £15.95, i think he got a decent meal and the plate had a healthy portion of meat, oven roasted veggies, yorkies and gravy. If i was feeling very hungry, this would be it. There was a decent array of other choices, fish, duck, pies – but nothing seemed too overpriced and other diners did seem to be enjoying it all.
Puddings – i refrained but companion had the sorbet which looked lovely – other choices were banoffi pie and eton mess – everything i saw others eating looked very well presented, not just plonked on a plate. The Wells obviously takes a lot of pride in presentation/
Im giving the Wells good marks because service was great and it certainly has a very good and cheery atmosphere. The food i had was delicious, and its one of the few pubs where im sure ill break my ‘one time only’ rule and will be back. Its ideal for a stop over after a leisurely walk in Hampstead but just make sure you are hungry and ready to feast!
