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

First time excellent value for the roast and it’s huge and the beef is out of the world so soft for someone who not a big meat eater and have eaten in many fine dining restaurants for a few decades. Service is friendly great and quick. My only saying is there was three big cloves in the crumble and not sure if it was meant to be there as it almost broke my fillings. We did mention to the male waiter in glasses but he just said it was for flavouring.
Other so, very nice and the entire menu was excellent 👍 so thank you 😊

We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the staff was super friendly.
The only negative point is that our table was in a cold corner of the pub with wind coming in every time someone was opening the door. My mum and I got quite cold.

Everything was great on this visit.
However, please try to book before going as they were not willing to help us last time we visited without a booking.

I took a punt and booked lunch after a post Heath walk with my partner.
I have to say the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food and drinks were excellent. I had the best schnitzel I have had for a long time and the Brew By Numbers IPA went down a treat.....also the staff were very attentive to our shy and well behaved dog.....will definitely return!

Lovely pub, great staff, but I could tell the menu is in flux. I booked based on a vegan friend's recommendation. The fish and chips were great, but they still need to work on veggie options. We look for things we can't easily make at home. Just a suggestion, Beyond Burgers would go great with their wonderful chips.

This was our second visit to the duke and it again didn’t disappoint. It’s a quaint little old place with friendly staff and the food is great. Massive portion sizes. The biggest pork chop I had ever seen!!

Nice little pub in the heart of Hampstead. We wanted a classic Sunday roast and weren’t disappointed with the portion size and meat selection, however it was served in a large flat bowl rather than a plate. Roast potatoes were buried under veg and gravy therefore no longer crispy. I think if plates were used and food was distributed differently it would be less of a jumble.

The first time I went to this pub, I had a really disappointing fish and chips. But I tried again and ordered something else (the salmon) and it was very good this time. And same as last time, the service was friendly and attentive.
