Where do Holloway locals go?

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

Emirates Stadium

There is only one team in North London! A good day out....


The best European restaurant in London serving gluten free alternatives and delicious pizzas!


A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

Dirty Burger

Really good burgers, brilliant milkshakes and onion rings from a hidden shack at the back of Pizza East.


This butchers sells award-winning meat. Simples.

Highbury Arts Club

Amazing place, so small that you may miss it if it isn't recommended! A family run business close to Highbury Barn, perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. They have now started doing jazz nights on a Thursday too.

The Highbury Barn

One of the most succulent chicken roasts you'll ever taste in a pub, with all of their meats supplied from the organic butcher just across the road.


Forget The Hawksmoor. This Argentinian steak restaurant serves amazing meat and has a very cosy ambience.

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Kentish Town Sports Centre

Recently renovated, this leisure centre set in a historic Grade II listed building has a swimming pool and a gym.

Franks Canteen

Delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch with a changeable menu.

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

The Bull & Last

A gastro pub with substantial breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as a large selection of beers and ales.
