1st Oct 2009 - Deceptively large and including a large beer garden, the Spaniards Inn is deserving of it's good reputation. The interior is an Olde World wooden affair with several little rooms and snugs to escape to (provided you can get there first). At the bar they have a better-than-average selections of lagers on tap, but the place will be a favourite with bitter drinkers as they regularly have guest-ales at the pump. The menu is traditional pub grub (including what looks like a very nice carvery) but is well very presented and doesn't have the extravagance or pretense of gastro. The one downside is perhaps its success. The place does get very busy and is, even during the week, full of ramblers and dog walkers from Hampstead Heath. Not too bad a thing unless you're trying to go there for Sunday lunch, in which case you'd be advised to arrive at opening time.

23rd Feb 2005 - Built in 1585, this pub was visited by various literary figures, including Charles Dickens and John Keats and is featured in the novel 'Dracula'. Dick Turpin used the inn from which to stage robberies and evade magistrates. The inn is said to be haunted and the staff keep a ghost book to log eerie experiences. Whilst it's difficult to appreciate the spirits on a cold Sunday, when the pub is full of families and dogs, in the summer this is a great pub as it has a huge beer garden with heaters. It's right by Hampstead Heath, so makes a good stop after a stroll. But otherwise, it's difficult to get to by public transport.
