Having previously avoided the Horseshoe after a couple of below average visits in the past, I was invited out for dinner there by a friend. What a turn around it was, service was so attentive and warm. Despite being very busy, service never faltered. We got some great recommendations and banter from a gent whom I presume was the manager... More

The horseshoe has one of the best IPA's I've ever had. Definitely go for the black IHL, so delicious!

We thoroughly enjoyed popping down at the bar and watching the locals with their families and pets. We'd go back and get snacks and drinks. Food looked good, staff friendly.

It's a good place for ale drinkers but the sophisticated food menu is not what I expect to see in a traditional pub. It's way too modern for my taste.

As a large family group we come here quite often; it's about half way between stoke newington and Hendon, our family reach. Over time it's reputation has clearly extended as it's much busier than originally. We go for Sunday lunch. There's a restaurant area which is more conducive to dining than the main part of the pub and we usually... More

Never got the craft beer revolution - frankly they're awful and sadly there isn't one beer served here that I'd drink here out of choice. Very good position and a handy place to meet but I would never arrange to meet somebody here unless I had to

Delicious roast, with a crazy amount of beer options! The other food looked amazing, the staff are really friendly and the restaurant is just great.

The Horseshoe is well located in Hampstead and easy to get to. There is a nice range of beers and wine and s good but limited menu. Nothing hugely exciting but a good option if you're looking for a local pub.

I had booked a table for my husband's birthday for a large group a few weeks in advance and specifically asked on two occasions if we could keep the table for more than two hours (as I am aware of their usual Sunday policies), which I was told was not a problem. I also asked for two high-chairs as we... More

Went here with family today and it was brilliant: we had the roast beef cooked perfectly. The pear and apple crumble was delicious and just what we needed in this weather - salted caramel was a great touch! You can see the chefs at work as you walk out and despite working at serious speeds, they are such a friendly... More
