we met with friends and each of us choose a different meal. we were all fascinated by the taste of each food. Service was typically Italian and we weren't bothered much by the waiter. We will definitely be back

La Gaffe does what it does well, with no fuss and most importantly lots of free tables. We ate here last night and, while most restaurants down the hill were packed, La Gaffe was almost empty. The menu almost never changes, but that's a good thing. I had the sirloin stead with peppercorn sauce and it was delicious. My other...

Glad you enjoyed your meal with us. Our core menu does change sometimes but we always tend to retain our most popular dishes. We supplement the main menu with our weekly specials that vary quite a bit........ As for lots of free tables, if you had tried to come along last night we didn't have any tables open at all....

This year's visit to London was highlighted by our return to the lovely Hampstead hotel, La Gaffe. We again enjoyed its quaint charm and homey atmosphere as well as the splendid service afforded to us by the owner, Lorenzo. The hotel is well situated near the Tube. We did a guided walking tour of the area and discovered interesting sites...

Having driven past this place a million times and never knowing it was there, we found ourselves invited to dinner. Our coats were taken at the door and we were seated by the window. (A popular trick by restauranteurs to show busy.) The restaurant wasn't busy and it was Friday night, perhaps because this place is more of an hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice detailed review. We never can quite predict when we will be busy, sometimes a Monday night can be the most hectic night of the week!! Our location and the poor parking options limit our restaurant trade, although good for our guests that are staying with us. I hope you will...

This has been my go-to hotel in London. The hotel staff are lovely, professional and hard-working. The rooms are small but very cosy and warm and have anything you may need for your stay there. The hotel is cheaper than the average London hotel and Hampstead is very conveniantly placed on the Northern Line (Tube) which makes getting to central...

The rooms are small and quaint very clean, Lorenzo and Pino are excellent with their service and are extremely welcoming. Restaurant food is great and breakfast everyday is also great. I have stayed here 3 times and will do so on every trip to London.

I stayed at La Gaffe for 3 nights B&B at the beginning of December to visit my son who owns The Duke of Hamilton pub around the corner. The manager Lorenzo and all the staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. I had a ground floor bedroom which was very clean. Plenty refreshments were provided and I had an ensuite...

Needed to stop over in London ahead of a very early train journey the next day. All 'zone 1' hotels were ridiculously over-priced for last minute deals. However, only a few stops up the Northern Line to find La Gaffe in Hampstead and you uncover a gem. It's not large (10 rooms?), and it's not 'swanky' but what is instead...
