For £16.50 I was expecting a half decent roast beef. When the food came complete with burned Yorkshire pudding I asked the waitress if the vegetables were coming separately. I was told that they were hiding under the beef! Half a carrot 15 peas and...More

Lovely pub, good roasts, need to book obviously. Great big beer garden for which tables can be booked if there is a group of you.

It's arguably the best located pub in Hampstead Heath, very nice large beer garden, and a cool interior, but that does mean it gets busy, and that's where it fails to cope for whatever reason...tables rarely get a wipe down, always sticky surfaces from previous...More

Lovely bear garden. Busy but you get served quickly. Drinks are reasonably priced. There is BBQ which is well done and tasty.

Welcome to The Garden Gate, the front door to the best alfresco fun in north London. Our beer garden is one of the city's finest, while inside is pretty inspiring, too. This 19th century pub has a long tradition of accommodating weary walkers and lovely locals from Hampstead Heath, and today we're doing it in style with fresh, home-cooked pub food, a stunning choice of speciality drinks and an ultra-relaxed atmosphere.
