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

    Lovely pub, very busy but service didn’t falter. Great food, quite dear for a pub but it’s Hampstead, so probably quite cheap. Would definitely go again.

    Tasty Saturday lunch at the Duke of Hamilton. My family and I tried various dishes, including the hamburger, fish and chips, chicken schnitzel and cauliflower mains. We all enjoyed our food! Service was also good. Would definitely return.

    Came back again for a spot of lunch and the food was sublime. Great to see ever changing, seasonal menu. Very relaxed ambience to chat away and enjoy drinks. Would be nice to see natural wines on the menu.

    Very good service and very very friendly place. But a small disappointment with the food. The recipe of our favourite chicken chunks (Korean and Louisiana) was changed, not so tasty as before, the portions are smaller and a bit more expensive.

    Perfect lazy Saturday lunch spot. Enjoyed the atmosphere on the terrace. No music blaring! First time in Hampstead and was recommended, it didn't disappoint. Lunch was plentiful. Great tasting Schnitzel and Buttermilk chicken. Staff were efficient and friendly. We would definitely return.

    Been put in the corner with very uncomfortable chair, asked for another empty, been told that table was booked, I said I booked the table too, was that booking particularly asked that table? Cos when I booked the table, it didn’t give me the choice of choosing the table. Then they told me it’s their system gave me the table. Can’t be changed. To make things worse, nobody turned up at the empty table the whole night. The manager told us that table was no show. Over charged us as well. Overall not good experience. The manager said we stayed quite late, so we must’ve enjoyed ourselves. Yes, we stayed late, because me and my friend enjoyed each other’s company. I would’ve left if I can book table elsewhere. But unfortunately the places I wanted to go were fully booked. So I had to stay.

    We had a wonderful Sunday afternoon at the Duke of Hamilton - spectacular roasts, fantastic cabbage and harissa tofu (trust me…), and a fab dessert. All accompanied by a good wine list and nice service. Recommended.

    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

    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.
