“Welcome to The Ealing Park Tavern, hidden away in the South Ealing suburbs. The wood, brick and whitewash exterior, reminiscent of something from a Harry Potter movie, holds many a tale and now we are looking to put our own stamp in the gastro pub...” more...

The best pub in Kilburn and Hampstead to boot.
Good variety of drinks, excellent atmosphere and good food. Cannot understand the comment about unfriendly staff…….

Went there with my gf.
Food was good especially the steak.
I had a glass of Malback which was really good as well.
Atmosphere is nice.
I wasn't impressed by the service and not the most polite people you can find.
Quite a good gastro option for the Kilburn area, but nothing super-surprising.
I went here for a late-night drink recently and thought it was a nice but normal pub, usual beers and prices. The dining room / restaurant in the back looked nice and I've heard from friends the food is nice, but I haven't tried it yet.
The only drawback of this refurbished pub is that it's right on the main road and the only outdoor area are tables and benches on this road. It can be super noisy, but good if you're already drunk and shouting!
If you can handle a 10 minute walk for a beer then my vote goes instead to the Lion pub on West End Lane in West Hampstead, it has a nice back garden as well as all the usuals.
The NLT is the second best bar in Kilburn (behind the King's Head) and offers a wide array of drinks and a proper place to enjoy some food.
With a wide range of whiskies and wine, and beer being well represented, the North London Tavern is a popular place for the start of a night and its conclusion. Often crowded between 7-9 and then 12-2, revellers tend to start here and then rejoin the older crowd as their night is ending.
The food is good, but expensive, and the restaurant section is one of the largest of the Kilburn High Road pubs. The service isn't too shabby either.
The barstaff are friendly, if not occassionally AWOL, and always have a smile on their faces.
the pub itself is great and a good meeting place in Kilburn. Good mix of people from old school Kilburn locals to younger trendies.
They need a new sound system though as the music was muffled.
Bar staff are nice but a bit slow. One minute there are three bartenders behind the bar, the next minute one and can get backed up.
Has some tables outside which is nice for us smokers.
The restaurant serves some good grub as well. A bit pricey but worth it.
I came here after having a very tough day. We sat outside, drank an awful lot of beer and that was fine. There was nothing out of the ordinary about the pub itself. Usual beers, usual drinks and possibly pub food but I don't remember.
That said it was nice to be able to sit outside a pub, but I'm not sure I'd make a point of coming here. It's fine if you're in the area, but don't make a special trip into the area to check it out.
A cool pub, and part of the ongoing gentrification of Kilburn.
A good meeting place, close to the train and tube stations. It’s got lots of bar space due to a wraparound bar. It also has a good mix of sofas, stools, tables, and benches to accommodate all sorts of groups.
It’s got both bar snacks - nuts, jelly beans, crisps, and a gastro-looking skylit dining room.
It had a real mix of people when I was recently here, as it’s got elements of both old pub and funky new meeting place. There’s old dark wood but it’s not too overdone.
It is a bit pricey: Flowers IPA, normally a very cheap pint, goes for £3.50! That’s the price of gentrification, I guess.
North London Tavern is a super pub. It may be a little trendy but everyone is laughing and jolly in here. It is the perfect balance in terms of coziness and spaciousness. It feels full, but you have your own space. Long bar means you get served quickly and it feels like there is a bustle in the streets around you. In the day time you can sit outside among the highstreet pedestrians and it is rather enjoyable.
We went there for friend’s send off and it’s quite a cool pub. It’s trendy enough to attract younger patrons (pre dribble and OAP passes) but not so that you feel alienated or that you have to dress up. The interior is furnished with a long wooden bar and basic furniture that’s a little worn but on the good side of shabby. I’ve heard the food is pretty decent though I haven’t given it a go. Definitely one of the better pubs in the area and one you should head for if you want a few drinks and a friendly vibe complete with smiling staff.
We stopped in to the North London Tavern for a quick Sunday lunch before heading off to Wembley Stadium to see the Race of Champions so I didn’t have much time to absorb the true atmosphere.
It seemed like a beautiful pub though with high ceilings, warm dark wood everywhere and comfortable seats. One of my co-diners complained that she could feel the vibration from the nearby train but I didn’t really notice it that much.
As we got there on opening for Sunday the staff were still getting their instructions from the manager. However they didn’t mind us placing our food orders though they didn’t seem to know very well how to put them through the registers! Staff were very friendly and they even kept us in the loop with the progress on our Sunday dinners (because they knew we had limited time to eat.)
Food was pretty good and obviously cooked fresh.
This is my local pub and I think it’s great. It’s got a buzzy vibe with a real eclectic mix of people, from trendy 20-30 somethings to writer types through to hard core boozers. The food’s great as well, which is always a plus, but you do have to book in time to get a table on a weekend night.
The food is not the best but for a drink the place is ok. Best time to go is on a saturday when they have a dj and the place is crowded. Goos plce in the summer with a lot of seating outside. Very friendly staff and you dont have to wait long for another drink.
Trendy pub that was revamped a couple of years ago to attract the twenties to thirties. Has a polished, traditional look lots of old wood and leather sofas. Theres a small restaurant area at the back with pretty good food. It can get really busy in the friday/saturday night slots - if you don’t mind standing though, it has a good buzz.
