Dating back to the 1500s and one of London’s oldest pubs, The Spaniards has been immortalised in various works of literature, and was frequented by historic figures including John Keats. Indoors, a charming yesteryear vibe sees mismatched furnishings, weathered wood panelling and leather-bound books dotted throughout, while a canopy-sheltered terrace immerses diners in Hampstead's lush, green landscape.

Enjoy a hearty meal from the Spaniards menu of British-inspired cuisine, which includes beef shin & kidney pie, kale & mashed potato, gnocchi with quinoa, chestnut mushrooms & truffled cream, and chicken hotpot with bacon, ale & pickled onions. Potted custard caramel with lavender short bread leads the tempting dessert menu.

With roaring fireplaces warming it in the winter, the pub also serves a list of speciality beers & fine wines, and traditional roast is available every Sunday. Enjoy your meal in one of two separate dining rooms, or in the award-winning, dog-friendly beer garden when the weather is warm.

The Spaniards in Hampstead is a 3-minute drive from Hampstead Tube Station.

    We were 30mins early so decide to wait at the bar for our friends who arrived on time but they had given our table away. Service was slow and abrupt at times. Food good on the whole. Overall, it felt like an overpriced experience.

    Saturday afternoon, booked for family lunch of 6. Waitress was friendly but explained it was her first day. Ordered a round or drinks for the table, one didn't turn up. Separately ordered another drink, had to chase as it took 25 mins to arrive. Main courses arrived and one (fortunately mine) was missing with no explanation. Waited to see if it would turn up and realised it wasn't going to. I had to try and chase the staff to notify them that I had no main course. Clearly forgotten my dinner arrived some 20 minutes after everyone else had finished and with barely an apology. Food was really very good but service was clearly dreadful with the excuse of Being too busy. Not too busy to automatically put all of our meals on the bill as well as a service charge too which seemed a little unsympathetic. Shame as it is a fantastic place with great food so would have been a good experience. will definitely not let this bad experience put me of this great pub

    The food was fine but felt the service was lacking. Staff initially wanted to take our food order straight after sitting down but after saying we wanted a few mins to wait for one of our party to arrive, we were left way too long before we saw anyone again. We were later given a fairly curt notice that we had a few mins before they were closing. Not a relaxed dinning experience.
