The Holly Bush is a warren of small rooms forming one of London's nicer pubs. It's a little hidden behind Hampstead tube, but most North Londoners know about it and have been a few times. The ales are fabulous and the menu is also good, although I found the portions slightly disappointing. What the Holly Bush does really well, however, is offer a quintessential London pub atmosphere.Recommended for:

The Holly Bush has a really friendly and cozy atmosphere, especially with all the old men in their hats and scarfs at the bar (It was a rainy day). I ate a steak and ale pie and drank a pint of London Pride here. The mustardy mashed potatoes in the pie were absolutely delicious. I'm still trying to recreate the meat pie perfection at home, it was so good. The Holly Bush is a charming place to relax, chat, and laugh.

Tucked on a side street of Hampstead this is as atmospheric as it gets. A local pub with style. Drinking here you can feel the history and magic of Hampstead Village. The food is good. Go fur the pies - steak and ale is my favorite. Wander to the end of the street for an amazing view of the london skyline.Recommended for:

Pub with a very traditional feel to it, often packed with eclectic crowds. If one is in the general vicinity, then great option for out of town visitors to experience a 'proper' pub. Food is not the most exciting, so I would stick to sampling one of the offers on tap.

Very cool historic tavern in Hampsted. The building dates back to the 1640s, and still retains a lot of the original fixtures, including gas lamps and oak paneling. The food is not good, but its a great place to grab a pint.
