Where do Colindale locals go?

Sunny Hill Café

A lovely dog friendly café with great food and ice cream. Perfect for just stopping by or having a spot of lunch with the family. Parking is super easy and free!

The Chequers

One of the oldest pubs in the area. They do great cheap drinks, a dartboard and the owner's two cats really rule the place. Be nice or the moggys will ask you to leave!

Fryent Country Park

A beautiful area perfect for Sunday walks in the countryside!


Pricey, but worth every penny. The customer service is second to none and it's a very romantic atmosphere - not rowdy and the food is delicious. They even make the serving bowls out of noodles so you can eat them too!

Hendon Park Café

Fantastic smoothies, milkshakes and sushi. It's Kosher too!

Dave's Barbers

Quite possibly the nicest bloke in the area. He's very professional and takes enormous care and attention to please every client - not to mention his shop is clean and bright!

Mr. Baker

Possibly the largest bakery in the universe! They also serve hot falafel, pizza, pasta and sushi. Lots of room for sitting inside and out and the parking is relatively good too.

Pages of Hendon

Having been in Hendon for years, they have absolutely everything a house could need - putting B&Q to shame!


A family-run business that has been there for 25+ years. They frame absolutely anything and are well priced, professional and very courteous. Always looking for a deal too!

Z's Barbers

Excellent value for money. Even if there is a long queue, the 3-4 guys will have you in the chair in no time and they have TV screens and magazines to keep you occupied.


For all of your Kosher needs. The staff are lovely and they have a great selection of home foods and gifts.

The Regency Club

Proper Indian food...truly authentic, bountiful and such amazing value! I defy anyone to actually get to the mains, when you can't help but order so many starters!

The Pillar

An upmarket hotel that is fully kosher, which serves the local community. It is very luxurious if you feel like a bit of a break away from the kids!

Allianz Park

A great day out for all the family watching rubgy at the Saracens home ground.

Karmarama Café

Situated in Gladstone Park, this café serves amazing breakfasts, great coffee and baked treats straight from the oven, including mouth-watering cakes. It's open from Friday to Sunday.
