We have a front ‘pub’ and a back ‘restaurant’ section. Dinner bookings are seated in the back, but for lunch, we seat bookings in both sections, so if you have a favourite spot please give us a call and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Dogs are welcome too, but just in the pub bit.
Friday 18:00 - 22:30
Saturday: 10:00 - 16:00 and 18:00 - 22:30
Sunday: 12:00 - 16:30 and 18:00 - 21:30
Great as always. Camden Hells is fantastic as are the wines and food menu.
Poor service; unfriendly waitress who made mistakes with orders which she did not realise or apologise for. Hugely noisy in the bar where we were seated despite having asked to sit at the back as it was a family Sunday lunch. Expensive mains which were small and the roast dinners were nothing special at all.
Portions seem to have been reduced (roast beef), and wine overpriced but still a good venue for a social sunday lunch!
Will continue to go back
First time at the horseshoe. Atmosphere buzzing. Well done
Really enjoyed our Sunday roast. Quite hipster for Hampstead!
Overall a nice setting let down by chaotic and slightly poor service .
Forgot our kids starters because they were “too busy”, kept saying to us weekends were busy- which it was. Food is actually good , albeit a tad mean on the meat portions given the prices.
Trying to be balanced and have been before and had a good experience. This time was really poor given the price and just an odd attitude from a number of members of the waiting staff (but not all)
It’s probably better on weekdays.
Lovely place, good food, nice atmosphere - really nice local pub/restaurant for a Friday evening
It was a while ago and although it was great to get a large table at short notice, the service was patchy and slow and the good was average. Would visit again for a drink because the location and ambience were great.
Great lunch on a sunny Hampstead afternoon. Good service, food was great as were the drinks.
Tasty meals, wish there had been a few more veggies surrounding them.
Great ambience, friendly and attentive staff. Choice of food is limited. Expecially if u are vegeterian/vegan. Other wise fresh and tasty food,very good selection of beers
Nice place to drink a beer, to enjoy the sun in the terrace or to have a lunch. I have been with my family on Sunday and the Sunday roast was very good and the hake very tasty.
Only 3 options for dessert and we tried the rhubarb custard but lack of flavour in my opinion.
Normally, I’m not energised to write reviews, but our Friday night dinner here was so bad, that I actually went to the effort of fishing this mail out of my trash to reply! My partner had padron peppers to start, whilst I opted for artichoke. Peppers were fine, but mine was dry, tasteless and mean. Sadly this set the tone. My partner ordered the short rib. Although it wasn’t raw, the fat had not been given time to render down, so eating it requires scraping layers of congealed fat off the side. Nuff said. I ordered sea bass, which was cooked, but largely unseasoned and dry, with no real sauce of note. Waiting staff were rather in your face (explaining the tannin balance of the house red). When plates were cleared, the waitress asked if the food was OK. We said no, and gave feedback. She apologised and said she would speak to the manager.
At this point we had neither asked to speak to the manager nor for a refund. However, the manger marched over, insisted on introducing himself with a sweaty handshake and proceeded to explain that he was in his right to charge us if the plate was ‘over 50% eaten’ and offered a free desert. As we had not asked for a discount, we found this statement deeply insulting, and demanded the bill with a desire to make a quick exit.
There are many excellent restaurants in London. This is not one of them. I’m sure the beer is nice....
The lunch deal was very good value -- a big steak sandwich and a half pint of beer for £10. The other food was a bit pricey, but looked very good. Great beer and the staff were really attentive. Great for a lunch with friends!
Excellent place for having a drink in a relaxed environment. The beer selection was first class and very well kept. Surprisingly the food didn't quite match the standard. I had roasted pork belly and somehow the crackling was a bit rubbery and the meat bone dry at the same time. I would surely come back for a drink.
Family Sunday lunch with our 2 young children. Am sometimes a bit apprehensive about bringing such young kids to bars and pubs but was no issue here. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. The manager Jonathan went out of his way to keep our youngest (9 months) entertained which meant my wife and I were able to enjoy our meal without him becoming bored or restless. Good food and usual great CTB beers.
My husband and I made a reservation for dinner on Saturday night. When we arrived, it was packed and lively and loud (as you might expect from a bar), but there was one harried server on the floor who seemed to have no back up. She also seemed to be working the bar. We mentioned our reservation and were told that she would "see if there was a table available."
There was more breathless back and forth with the server and a further wait, and we were finally seated.
The table next to us began complaining to the (one) server about some issue with their order and she was trying to placate them and keep her eye on the rest of the room.
We quickly realised that it was unlikely we were going to get any kind of service that was either swift or present or merited the price of the meal. So we left.
It was very obvious they were completely understaffed and the server was losing it; one person can't carry a room on a Saturday night.
This is a fun, airy, friendly pub. The windows open in the summer and it has a polished but relaxed feel. A good place to go for a drink. But we'll likely never do a dinner there again unless they can get more people on the floor.
Wonderful Sunday lunch -- the food was delicious and the staff were so kind to our two small children.
very dissatisfied with the overall food experience. TINY portions of food. And wait staff that need some training.
Very disappointing experience with wait staff and manager.
Great food but a little pricey for sides, £5 for broccoli and chips. Nice buzzy place but service got very slow when it was busy and we were trying to pay the bill. Would still go back though.
Easter lunch of roast lamb and roast beef was excellent. The setting was homey (many families), friendly, and atmospheric. Highly recommended.
Would go there again
Service bit poor. Wasn’t asked for further drinks and had to get up to ask for them and also the bill
Food was nice but pricey for what it was
Excellent service, good local craft beer
I took my mum here for mother’s day with the rest of my family after visiting with my boyfriend a few time last summer. We had loved the Sunday roast and I wanted to take my parents to experience the great roast too. When we arrived it was really busy as it was mother’s day we ordered and received our starters which were amazing however we then waited over an hour for our mains. When our mains finally came out the portions looked a lot smaller than normal and even small compared to the table next to us that ate about half an hour before. I then realised there was no Yorkshire pudding and when I asked they said they ran out and they could give me stuffing (should have been told they ran out and offered some extra rather than having to ask. My mum pork also had no apple sauce due to running out. The food was also unfortunately cold. I was really disappointed and hope it was a one off.
We had a table in the restaurant booked for 3 on mother's day, which was not ready at the time of our booking. They suggested to seat us in the bar area instead. After we declined, a table in the restaurant was found.
They kept us waiting for one hour for our main courses, we had to leave hungry and they reluctantly agreed not to charge for the food which had not been served.
A very nice please and excellent food, but unfortunately the service is badly managed.
sunday roast was yummy, and staff were really nice
Overpriced, not value for money. The food was good but quantities small. The place was quite noisy. The service was sometimes inattentive (forgot cutlery on several occasions).
The server seemed overwhelmed, he brought out the meals of the three people I was with and then didn't come back at all to bring mine. Turns out he never ordered it. I had to eat after everyone else had finished their roasts. When mine came out it was cold, the meat was very fatty, potatoes overdone and the plate was missing elements that were described in the menu. We then ordered dessert as it was offered to me on the house. A different server forgot about that and three of the four came out burnt after a 40 minute wait. My friends food was quite good, a shame everyone felt let down by the restaurant due to the experience.
The food was excellent, especially the bread and butter pudding. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive.
Good dining options are a bit thin in Hampstead (at least in my experience). This was very enjoyable.
An excellent selection of beers (not just the Camden ones). The food was very good too. Nothing too fancy, but well executed. A decent spread of options on the menu.
Mussels were tasty and the steak good quality and cooked just as ordered. Lively atmosphere and friendly service. I understand they have live music on a Sunday.
Would go back.
Good atmosphere, good food and excellent beers list. Definitely to try
Always such a great atmosphere here - visit frequently!
I have been here a few times before, and never had anything to complain about.
However after arriving we were told that they didn’t have a delivery and were low on beers.
I asked for a vodka, but was told they had run out of that too. And they could not go and buy more ( there is a Tesco) across the road!
Not quiet the birthday meal I had hoped for.
The food was excellent as ever.
Amazing food & beer. Loved the place. And the neighbourhood as well. Superb beer. The meat was so tasty.
Wonderful Florentine waitress-couldn’t have been more helpful. Good food and wine choice, good atmosphere-a good local.
Excellent Sunday roast
Cosy but lively spot for a fantastic Sunday roast.
