Service is always good, with a cool vibe about the pub, but I think it constantly lets itself down by the standard and cleanliness of the toilets... visiting a handful of times over the past month, the gents have either run out of soap or...More

There aren't all that many decent places to sit outside in London, probably because as soon as you do, it starts to rain. The Garden Gate has a really nice, busy outside seating area with canopies and trees and it's really pleasant to sit there...More

Loved this pub. We had a lovely meal and loved the outside area at the back as we were lucky enough for the weather to be good and there were heaters.

Description
Welcome to The Garden Gate, the front door to the best alfresco fun in north London. Our beer garden is one of the city's finest, while inside is pretty inspiring, too. This 19th century pub has a long tradition of accommodating weary walkers and lovely locals from Hampstead Heath, and today we're doing it in style with fresh, home-cooked pub food, a stunning choice of speciality drinks and an ultra-relaxed atmosphere.
