Review on The Freemasons Arms
A landmark Hampstead watering hole with an unrivalled position on the Heath, the Freemasons Arms is also a recent gastro pub award-winner. The interior has been given a thorough makeover and it now comes complete with log fires and an open kitchen; there's also the bonus of a superb garden with beautifully landscaped decking for al fresco meals.
The menu is an easily accessible run through 'sharing plates' of mezze and tapas, 'little dishes' (crab cakes with mango and coriander salsa, caramelised onion and goats' cheese tart) plus 'leaves' (upbeat salads including crispy duck with watercress and mooli). Pizzas from the wood-fired oven are also a big attraction, along with pasta dishes and specialities from the grill and rotisserie: try Moroccan lamb cutlets with saffron potatoes, chorizo, peas and mint. The wine list a reasonably priced, global mixed bag.
