Where do Hendon locals go?

Pages of Hendon

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

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.

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!

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.


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!

Hendon Park Café

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

Allianz Park

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


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

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!

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!


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!


Moments away from Finchley Central station, you can find this trendy coffee shop serving fresh cakes and croissants accompanied by a very enjoyable coffee.


Exceptional Persian food, flavourful and generous portions. The staff are always friendly and hospitable.

College Farm

Great to take the kids to for a few hours. If you have a pet, there is a pet shop on site and London's largest equestrian store.

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!
