Birthplace of the celebrated Camden Town Brewery, after founder Jasper Cuppaidge started brewing beer in the basement as a hobby, The Horseshoe is a bustling child and dog-friendly gastropub that serves inventive gourmet dishes alongside its famous list of craft beers.

Focusing on traditional British traditions given inventive tweaks, the Horseshoe menu uses only the freshest seasonal produce. To start, there is smoked ham hock terrine with parsley, shallots and capers, followed by hearty dishes like rotisserie chicken with caesar salad and chips. European additions can be found in favourites like beef bourguignon with parsnip mash, and there are vegetarian specials such as roast cauliflower with spiced butter, chard and pistachios. On Sundays, there are extremely popular roasts with all the trimmings.

Desserts at The Horseshoe Hampstead offer indulgent traditional flavours, such as baked custard pot with Yorkshire rhubarb, as well as chocolate mousse with cherries, kirsch and almonds. As well as a full wine list, there is a great selection of beers from Camden Town Brewery.

A cornerstone of the Hampstead pub scene, The Horseshoe London allows dogs in the bar area, and sits only a minutes' walk from Hampstead Tube Station.

  • (((** 2 January 2017 by Angel from London

    Service was exceptionally slow (sat down at 12.30 and food didn't arrive until 2) with no apology (other than to say they were busy when we complained). Food was average - my fish and chips were swimming in oil.
    Pity since the horseshoe used to be one of the best pubs in Hampstead but has gone downhill substantially

    Food was really good but service was slow not hugely friendly.

    Had an average Sunday lunch at the Horseshoe despite its good recommendations.

    Starters were alright - nothing memorable.

    All of our mains were average - firstly they took an age to arrive and then certain parts of our roasts were cold and the gravy was as thin as water and bland - and not what I would've expected at £19.50 a pop.

    Beers were delicious but that's to be expected from the Camden Hells brewery.
    House red was pleasant.

    All in all I would certainly go back for a few beers but food was nothing to write home about - overall a disappointing experience.

    We chose roast beef for a Sunday lunch. The food was cold when it arrived and served on cold plates. We asked for one person's to be heated up. By the time it reappeared everyone else had finished their dishes, rather spoiling the occasion and the beef was now over-cooked. At over £20 it was very poor value.
