See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This old coaching inn with a large central bar has been a stalwart of the gay scene for many years which has earned it the local nick-name of the Pink Willie. The entertainment is geared to the target audience and there is seating in a very pleasant back garden and outside on the street by a crepe stall (separately operated so don't bring crepes into the pub).

Essentially one room wrapped around a central bar but remnants of former room dividers help break the place up into several discrete areas. The closing hours Fri to Sun are described as "late bar".Listed as an ACV Nov 2015 following an application by the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum.

Rock Group Whiskey Mick on Mondays, Piano Bar Sing-a-Long session on Thursdays and Cover Version Trio Bad Dog Bites on Fridays. Occasional live music some Saturdays. The pub also hosts bi-monthly charity fundraising events which are very well supported by customers and local businesses alike.

The walls are dedicated to the people of Hampstead with over 100 portraits throughout the pub walls with maximalist effect.
