We were there this afternoon. The pub was very busy but they let us sit on one of the sofas in the dining room - even though we were just having a drink. They had one craft beer that I hadnt heard of before, which I had and liked (sorry I cant remember the name). The food looked good and we decided to return another Sunday and try it. Dogs are welcome. We had our puppy with us.

Really nice pub with friendly and helpful staff. I used their function room for a party this weekend and they couldn't have been more welcoming, even bringing meals upstairs for the guests. There was a good selection of drinks at reasonable prices - including fresh-tasting ales - and the two downstairs bars complement each other well - one airy one which feels more suited to dining and one cozier saloon. A great place for a party or for a pint and a good-value meal after a walk on Hampstead Heath.

Recently reopened after a refurb, which has tidied up the main bar without changing it noticeably, and given a bit more priority to the regulars' public bar. The public bar is warm and welcoming on a cold day, but the chairs are a bit odd - everything else is traditional, these look like something out of the Roebuck in its disco days. Otherwise, it looks promising.

The main bar is buzzy, and the staff are polite and welcoming. But, FFS, if I sit down at a table and have a pint, I don't want to be chased out by a 'waiter' informing me that a party of six are coming, and could they have my table?

No mate, it's a pub. Do try and remember that

Went last Sunday and enjoyed myself immensely. The public bar is reassuringly old fashioned and was very busy. Staff were nice. Guest Ale was Celtic Teap which was excellent, apart from that Pride and Greene King IPA were the Ale's on tap. Ended up staying several hours and chatted to an assortment of the interesting and varied locals.

This place is definitely on the slide. It's staggering around like a drunk with a head wound, not quite sure why it's bleeding.

The food used to be a bit special - now it's smaller portions, less tasty, same quite high prices. The place is increasingly overrun with kids and the old regulars are crammed, rather forlornly, into the smaller public bar.

As for the staff… they seem to "forget" they're working in a pub and insist on table service, meaning the attendant service charge for a round of drinks is added to your food bill.

Real shame this.
