More than just a neighbourhood joint, it’s a destination.


Our Story

Paul Winch-Furness / Photographer

The Hampstead conundrum was definitively solved 17 years ago when Beth Coventry transformed a run-down pub into the architectural Georgian gem

The menus have evolved over time and now under the aegis of head chef, New Zealander Greg Smith, they are innovative without being intimidating, responsively seasonal and in parts as cosy as a pair of favourite slippers. They cater for both the ground floor with its bar, bare tables, fireplace, board games, dog bowls and squashy sofas and the three differently decorated dining rooms on the first floor (all, by the way, available for private parties).

The Wells Tavern has become a Free House meaning that the choice of beers ranges deep and wide. Cocktail offerings are embellished by a special for each week and the composition of the wine list reflects the thoughtfulness and absolute commitment to value applied throughout.

my favourite pub is The Wells Tavern

Events and Celebrations


The Wells has a variety of rooms to celebrate a special occasion or just to get a group of friends and family together for a night out.

Due to the social distancing restrictions currently in place and the layout of our dining rooms we are currently only able to reserve tables of 6 Maximum.  We will update our events info as soon as we have more information about the next step of easing restrictions hopefully from 19th July onwards.  

Provisional enquiries can be sent to


It's a family-friendly menu: well priced pub classics cooked to perfection.
