Gastro Pub
The Duke has been a core part of Hampstead life since 1721 and boasts a rich history and heritage.Now, after a brief period of restoration, the pub has reopened under the management of Hampstead-born brothers Ben and Ed and their childhood friend Adam. The boys have given the beloved local pub a new lease of life, with a brilliant bar offering, relaxed, vibrant spaces and a food menu that shows off pub grub at its best.
The pub is also home to the Hampstead Jazz Club, one of north London’s best new music venues

Really enjoyed a wonderful early evening dinner and drink in the bar gardens. The service was outstanding, really polite and considerate staff were on hand at all times.

I have lived in Hampstead for 20 years and would definitely recommend this venue, its away from the crowds and situated in a quite but historic section of the neighbourhood.

An excellent gastro-pub lunch in the back garden of this pleasant Hampstead village pub. The food was good and the service excellent. I'd especially recommend the crostini starter and sirloin steak.

A decent roast but not amazing. Lovely relaxed atmosphere but the back lacked a little ambience (front was prettier). No heaters. Would go back as staff lovely and friendly.

Good Sunday roast though rather chilly outside. But that’s what we have to do right now! Happy to have this as local pub and looking forward to when the jazz club can get going again.

The location and ambience is really nice and the staff friendly and efficient. I was not satisfied with the food. I ordered the mussels and I could feel sand in every single one of them. However I recommend this place, I would go again!

Really beautiful spot for outdoor drinks and some food but could do with a bit more ambience as well as the understanding that not all customers want to miss out on the sunshine by sitting under umbrellas.

Food was good for the most part but veggie offerings can be too oily for some.

Great food and a great place. The only down point is there is no outside heating, at night remember a warm coat .

Went for a meal for the mrs.
Service was excellent.
Food was okay. Steak was a little on the fatty side but the breaded haddock was good.
Dessert was also okay.

Thought the food was a little overpriced.

Really enjoyed our lunch this week at Duke of Hamilton. Service was excellent and food / wine delicious. Felt very relaxed and comfortable (which was especially important as I had baby with me) and was a lot more chilled out than many other pubs / restaurants post-lockdown - will definitely be back again very soon!
