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

    This is a great venue for drinks and food. Good choices in both areas. The food is very well cooked with fresh ingredients and seasonal. I would have given it 5 stars for everything but service brought it down. The service was friendly and competent, just hard to get anyone. Seemed very busy doing other things, not sufficiently attentive. Dont let it put you off however it is an outstanding gastropub

    Mussels were nice. We sat outsite at the front, which was good. Friendly staff. We missed the jazz (we only heard pop music)…

    The Duke of Hamilton has a good food menu and the meals were well prepared and generous. The staff were friendly and very efficient. It has been my favourite gastropub in Hampstead for some time.

    The Duke, now revived under new management, has become probably the best food pub in the village. Also slightly out of the way, so slightly less overrun with tourists in the summer. Highly recommended.

    Chicken caesar came with too much dressing and about a dozen anchovies. Yes, anchovies are healthy but... really?

    Found the noise level unbearable with screaming/ unsupervised children, and had to leave. Food was being consumed at the Jazz club which again was unpleasant.

    Delicious Pimms and mussels!! The service was OK and the prices reasonable. I recommend it specially for the people that live in the area. I will need to comeback to listen the Jazz Bands in the future ( show from Wednesdays to Saturdays, I think).

    Disappointing- I really like this pub but in this occasion was disappointed on several fronts 1) the menu was inappropriate for a hot summers evening - there was absolutely nothing appealing for summer2) the food was delivered at different times with one of our party of four getting their main 20 minutes after everyone else. The waitress was lovely and hugely embarrassed and didn’t want to charge us for it but it spoiled the meal.

    The staff are friendly and professional. My booking was for outdoor seating and unfortunately the weather wasn't great. We were found an indoor table with the minimum of fuss even though it was a very busy Sunday lunchtime slot. The food was delicious with generous portions. My family regularly arrange birthday lunches here because the standard is always high. See you soon!

    C cider excellent if you don’t like fizz Nut roast very nice but taste could have improved by serving a red berry type sauce Chicken roast very good but bread sauce cold should try a warm onion sauce Service tops waiters couldn’t have been more attentive.

    We come here often before the Jazz downstairs & while I think it's about time you changed the menu, I was the 1st time I'd had the fish and chips! Definitely the best I've had in years, very light but crunchy batter & freash fish, my only complaint was that my wife kept eating it too! Thanks x
