About the Pub

23/11/19 - "This has just reopened as the Haverstock Tavern - no obvious links as yet.

Real ale pumps spotted." Confirmed three cask beers on as at 30/11. Suspect a beer from Leeds might be a regular and perhaps the Pride but we shall see.

25 October, "Passed last night at 10.27 and the pub was resolutely closed. There's what looks like some tentative restoration work to the exterior of the ground floor, but peering through the gloom into the interior reveals a very different story with what looks like extensive work being undertaken."

Reopened with an update from the Assistant Manager, "Unfortunately, we are not offering any real ales at the moment. This is however something I am currently looking into and will be aiming to add a couple of lines to our offering in the very near future. I am actually a member of CAMRA and am very keen to get some cask beers in ASAP!

With regards to our in house beer, we have been having issues regulating the temperature in our micro brewery so have been working closely with London Beer Lab in order to brew our Pale Ale off site. This again is something we are working on and all should be up and running very soon!"

From Propel - London-based hospitality company MJMK is to open a neighbourhood pub in Belsize Park next month. The business, founded by Marco Mendes, Jake Kasumov and Reza Merchant, will launch The Belrose in Haverstock Hill. It will be a modern take on the British pub with a menu of Italian-inspired dishes and an on-site micro-brewery. Pizzas will be cooked in a clay oven to go alongside charcuterie, cheese and small plates. The drinks list will include an IPA brewed on-site, natural wine, international beer, cocktails, spirits and soft drinks. The garden will seat more than 40 and feature an outdoor bar. The 80-cover dining room will combine table seating, booths and sofas as well as counter dining around the bar and open kitchen. A separate snug will seat an additional 15 covers. MJMK also owns and operates S11 bar and health food cafe Homegrown, both in Brixton. It will launch Portuguese piri-piri chicken concept Casa do Frango in London Bridge this summer.

This is how it was -

Est 1721. Rebuilt in 1863. Reverted to its original name (Load of Hay) in 2016 after 14 years as the Hill. Cosmetically changed in latest incarnation. Fairly spacious with a small room adjoining the main bar, grey and cream decor, tall bar-back with mirrors and pilasters. As well as the real ales, there are keg beers from the likes of Captain Lawrence, Harpoon, Roosters and Titanic. The operator Gresham Collective also runs the Cork and Bottle in Leicester Square and the Pride of Paddington in west London. From 1965 until 1974, it was called the Noble Art in honour of the Belsize boxing club and gym behind the building. The pub now has a micro brewery producing a 5% home made beer, Pale Ale, golden in colour, light to the taste with a soft hoppy finish.
