A retro bar and pizzeria in West Hampstead.

Remember your nan’s front room? The one she decorated back when shag carpets were chic? Welcome to Bobby Fitzpatrick: a ’70s-themed cocktail bar in West Hampstead that takes nostalgia to new levels. Think natty wallpaper, a stucco ceiling, a vintage playlist and way too much wood. But once you get over the weirdness of watching north Londoners in their shirtsleeves perched on old folks’ home armchairs, Bobby Fitzpatrick works. There’s also something weirdly comforting about escaping our decade for the evening and getting drunk in another one.

Plus, these cocktails are really good. My favourite was the Enrique the 5th, a smoky mescal, pineapple, absinthe and egg-white number that came with a perfect tangy kick. Rum-based cocktails are the speciality, though, so make sure you try the Alison Mahoney, (it's a spiced rum drink dedicated to the owner’s senior prom date).

Where the novelty factor ran thin, though, was the food. My lamb doner pizza (yes you read that right) tasted like a drunk person dropped their kebab all over a deep crust Iceland pizza. Stick to the prawn cocktail, which was decent. And what could be more ’70s than that?

The 70's decor and retro cocktails make this place. That being said, the brunch pancakes were also delicious. I went for the sweet potato-based pancake with smoked salmon and poached eggs - can't go wrong! That being said, the highlight of this place is definitely the decor - if you're looking for your perfect poach regardless of the setting, then this isn't your place.

Have to declare I love anything retro, especially from the 70s, so as soon as I walked into this bar I decided I want to live here.

Bobby Fitzpatrick has only been opened since January this year and their bottomless brunch is a brand new concept.

Drinks options for brunch are spritzer, punch and daiquiris. Food is a variety of pancakes or pizza and sides.

The interior is meticulously decorated as a 70s house- and not a detail is missed. It really is like going back in time.

The main reason I’m here obviously is the food. And it is good, which is a total understatement. It’s amazing, delicious, innovative.

My blue cheese and mushroom triple-stack pancakes were completely smothered in blue cheese sauce; one of the most indulgent dishes I’ve eaten ever.

The spinach, bacon and hollandaise pizza had a fantastic, thin base and was layered so the flavours really came through. The hollandaise came in a pot on the side. I can see why they’re so well-known for their pizza. The guacamole side was delicious.

All in all, for bottomless cocktails, a brunch main and side to share for two was about £50 which, given the generous portions and quality of food, is very good value.

We were told by a waitress that ‘the idea here is that you don’t leave hungry, and a little bit drunk’. I can confirm that’s been achieved.

I went to the Bobby Fitzpatrick for my mates birthday. It’s a really lovely bar,it has a sense of the Notting Hill about it. Adorned with citchery like retro TV’s with fuzzy screens, cactuses and books, arm chairs with a blend of funky colours. What I like about this bar is that it wants you to stay,it wants you to hang out and havea boogie. A fab list of cocktails and a bloody lovely Pina Colada slushy! A good selection of beers too. I didn’t try the food but it all looked very nice. A cool place and welcome addition to West Hampstead. Like a mini Trailer Happiness set in the depths of north west London.

Bobby Fitzpatrick takes you back to the 1970s! It's all in the detail from the bold designs and prints to the lacquered furniture! This is a great bar if you like going to quirky places! The cocktails were delicious, the staff were friendly and they have a daily happy hour from 5pm to 7pm which is always nice ;-). My only con would be the food, the pizza wasn't that great, a bit bland for my taste but everything else about this place rocks, 70s style!

After much wandering along West End Lane on Sunday afternoon in search of anywhere with a table free for lunch, we stumbled across Bobby F's and without giving it a thought dived into the empty seats. Why the place was so empty boggles, staff were friendly and welcoming and any menu that offers a garlic mushroom topped pizza gets a yes from me. I wonder if perhaps the slightly Shoreditch-esque retro vibes are perhaps a little too avante garden for the yummy mummies of West Hampstead. Having said that I stopped by with my 60+ mum and her friend, who both loved it...on second thoughts maybe they loved the 70s nostalgia. Anyway, I can't vouch for the cocktails as we just did lunch, but I can say it has great staff, blooming tasty food and a nice relaxed atmosphere. I'd be keen to check out its nighttime offering next time.
