Came for Sunday lunch with visitors from abroad. A great example of traditional fair! No idea how they manage it from the tiny kitchen but everything was so tasty. Really interesting well seasoned dishes, service was very good, swift but not rushed even at such a busy time!

Local pub with buzzing atmosphere offering excellent food quality and variety. A little too noisy at times

Great food and great pub, on the more expensive side of things but I guess this is Hampstead. Attentive service, excellent beers and wine. Lovely roasts. Had the pardon peppers to share and they were good too.
The booth seating is not for those of large stature, got a bit cosy after a large plate of food! Definitely recommend though and very kid / dog friendly.

We went for a Sunday Roast, having heard great reviews from friends in London, and weren't disappointed - we had the beef, pork belly and the vegan nut roast and everything was exceptional. Service was friendly and fast, but we spent an hour and a half enjoying our food without feeling rushed as the pub was very busy.

Our first choice always for Sunday lunch when visiting regularly from France. The roast beef is excellent quality and value. Friendly and very helpful staff too. My only qualification is that it is all piled on to too small a plate. Either larger plates or potatoes and yorkshires in separate bowls would make for a better presentation and nicer eating experience.

Busy place and clearly no capacity to cope.
We waited for 40 minutes to be served and then found out that they have missed one order (we were 6 and didn’t take the order of one of us, the waiter only wrote down 5 dishes), resulting in the 6th person having to wait for 20 additional minutes.
There was no apologies, just one waiter blaming the other, and a 12.5% service charge reflected in the bill anyway. Outrageous!

Thanks for your feedback Xiana. I’ve just caught up with the team about your visit. Unfortunately, the note about the gluten free burger caused some confusion as we were getting to grips with a new till over the weekend (fixed that problem now) and obviously we struggled to keep up to speed. I'm sorry that we didn’t meet the mark this time and I'd like to make it right. If you could email me at Milo@thehorseshoehampstead or give me a call on the pubs number, that’d be great Best regards, Milo

I dined with my 2 adult daughters and we all agreed it was the best sunday roast we've had. The roast potatoes were crispy and there was plenty of them and all the vegetables were cooked perfectly. We sat in the bar and the atmosphere was lively but not too loud. Service was impeccable, staff were friendly and helpful.

The Horseshoe is a great pub in a great location. The staff are very welcoming and the dining area is small but stylish. We arrived in the evening for a Sunday roast which was almost certainly not one of our better ideas to be fair.
It was a large serving but the beef was cut a little too thin and quite fatty and the Yorkshire puddings were probably a few hours old so a bit dry. It felt a little as if we were getting the last of what was left of the day. And it could have all been warmer.
That said, if we’d gone for Sunday lunch, I feel sure we would have had a better meal so the comments above should be taken in that context.
Would we go again? Definitely. Although we would make different choices.

As a vegan I had my first Vegan roast which was great, just beware the yorkshire pudding isn't Vegan however- We had a great seat at the back by the window, a lovely sun trap with a view. Great service, Food, was a great portion size, presentation & so tasty! Would recommend

First time at the Horseshoe having come across it through Camden Brewery’s social media. Have to say it was the best Sunday roast I’ve had (beef). Girlfriend had the special (sea bass and samphire). I’m not one for taking the time to write reviews but this place was excellent and well worth a trip!! Plus they serve every Camden ale going!

Atmosphere and food were lovely, and the staff was friendly (especially at the bar, where I was allowed to try some beers). Unfortunately our waitress knocked over our bottle of wine and never brought a new bottle over or gave us a discount which would have been fair.

The Horseshoe is one of three great pubs in Hampstead (the other two are the Holly Bush and the Duke of Hamilton). There is a great selection of beers, a really nice atmosphere on a hot evening with the big windows left open. I had a perfectly cooked steak (on the rare side of medium rare). It was well-rested and perfectly seasoned. The side of fries was a bowlful salty and crispy deliciousness. We had started of chicken wings (superb), padron peppers (we were probably going overboard on the salt) and smoked mackerel pate. All good.
