We visited for a mid week lunch on our way to the Royal Free but the Garden Gate is also close to Hampstead Heath. We enjoyed fish finger 'sandwiches' - battered pieces of fish with tartare sauce served in a brioche bun with fries. We...More

A nice spot for after work meet-ups. Drinks and snacks were ok - just like what you can get from most pubs. Dinner options were good but very often some items on their dinner menu weren't available. Service was usually good and efficient, but there're...More

Terrible service, waited 1hr after ordering. Forgot one meal. Had to remind waitress to a ask how steaks should be cooked. Food ok but not worth the poor service. Maybe an off day. We won't find out as not coming back.

Welcome to The Garden Gate, the front door to the best alfresco fun in north London. Our beer garden is one of the city's finest, while inside is pretty inspiring, too. This 19th century pub has a long tradition of accommodating weary walkers and lovely locals from Hampstead Heath, and today we're doing it in style with fresh, home-cooked pub food, a stunning choice of speciality drinks and an ultra-relaxed atmosphere.
