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

    A fun place to eat with friends or to celebrate an occasion. Inside and outside dining with heating and cover outside. A great venue. Also there’s a Jazz Club that operates downstairs

    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.

    One of our favourite spots on Hampstead. Service was a bit slow, but it was an incredibly sunny and busy Sunday. Will be coming back.

    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

    We ordered burgers thinking they’d be a ‘safe’ choice. I would have liked a gluten free bun but there were none so I ordered it plain. My friend found her burger meat inedible, and sent it back. I managed to eat about 1/3 of mine, which was presented on a bed of wilted lettuce and soggy tomato. It was a grey-ish colour and looked like it was a solid lump of reconstituted supermarket renderings, not proper mince at all. Totally disgusting in presentation, taste and in no way was it medium rare as requested. Then on the bill, my friend’s returned item was charged (£15!) about which I complained and only then was it taken off. She had breaded chicken instead which she said was more or less OK. But at £18 not worth that. The service was very nonchalant and the prices totally excessive for the poor quality of what was offered. Never again! We came for the music downstairs, which was good. But drinks were West End prices without the finesse. What a rip off!

    Nice pub, convivial atmosphere, nice staff-particular lady behind the bar- otherwise service bit slow and overstate-had to get up from table and go to bar and ask again for drinks after quite some wait and no sign of our waiter reappearing. Food wise- bit variable but with some strong dishes- Really good starters -hummus and asparagus both particularly good-the fish and chips are always good here- also the fish cakes are great-the moules were not great to be honest - this is the second time we have tried them and they were really lacking - think the chef needs to rework the recipe and look at adding more flavour to this classic dish. Everything needed more seasoning and I don’t use much salt when I cook but every dish needed salt or pepper added. Would recommend as a nice local pub but wouldn’t travel to eat here.

    The monkfish which is shown as a special dish is a frozen fish and not well prepared. I would never recommend something I cannot serve as it should be. The food used to be better there before.
