Where to eat, drink & make merry

 
 
 

A non-exhaustive list of where to eat and drink on and around Hampstead Heath, based on my own good experiences and recommendations from readers. Each list starts in Hampstead village and goes roughly anti-clockwise around the Heath. Be sure to book ahead if you want to eat at the pub at the weekend.

If you have a favourite that I’ve missed, please get in touch!
