Freemasons Arms, Hampstead
To the right there is a large dining area which is in 2 sections. Behind that there is a magnificent large landscaped garden expanse with also plenty of tables and chairs.
This pub is now a gastro bar which would work very well if there was enough staff to attend to the diners and drinkers. The food is reasonable and well priced for the neighbourhood. The beer and ale selection are average. and the service is slow but very polite and friendly.
The very well kept toilets are downstairs.
A good mix of people visit and there seems to be a high proportion of women on some occasions. A good place to relax and added bonus if you like to sit outside. You would be happy to take your mates, girlfriend or even granny. As with many gastro bars the service is slow due to food orders and staff shortages.. The Freemasons is very clean, bright and well maintained. and worth a visit .
