The Flask Pub
Just off Hampstead High Street, near the tube station, runs a little alley called Flask Walk. This charming little walkway is lined with antique shops and small cafes, and on the corner is one of London's most popular pubs. The Flask pub has large glass windows that glow with the atmosphere from inside, and it is almost impossible not to be drawn in for a pint.
The pub is divided into two bars, with a stunning engraved glass partition running down the middle. On the walls hang panels painted by Jan Van Beers, and behind the long bar, the staff are always keen to enlighten visitors on the pub's history. The pub we see now is Victorian and built on the site of another tavern made famous when flasks of the spring water from Hampstead Heath were sold to coffee shops and restaurants as well as the general public for medicinal purposes. Today the Flask is famous for its Sunday roast. After a long walk on Hampstead Heath there are few better places to spend a Sunday afternoon than in this pub, eating its fine food. As well as traditional roasts, the kitchens serve great British pub food such as fish and chips and steaks. There is often live jazz in the evenings, and also pub quizzes for those who are feeling clever. The Flask generously serves its famous Sunday roasts all day, but in their own words, the management advise visitors to come early to make the most of this wonderful place
