History

The Duke of Hamilton has been a core part of Hampstead life since 1721 and was once famed as the favourite watering hole of actors Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole and Oliver Reed. The pub has a rich history and heritage but has remained a pillar of the community for centuries, feeding and watering locals and visitors for close to 300 years. In 2019 The Duke was brought back to life by local brothers Ben and Ed, and their childhood friend, Adam. Growing up in the area, The Duke was always a regular haunt, so restoring it to its former glory has been a true passion project for the boys. Now, The Duke is a cosy local space for great food and drink, with families and dogs always welcome.
