Where do NW7 locals go?

Belmont Children's Farm

A Mill Hill institution and one of the loveliest urban farms in London. Kids love it, especially the animals, ranging from small chicks all the way up to alpacas and horses.

The Rising Sun

A quaint village pub with an appetising menu, including a choice of aperitifs, starters, mains and desserts. Can accommodate large groups in their separate dining room, or a more intimate feast. A short distance to Saracens rugby stadium.

Finchley Nurseries

Offering a lovely countryside location, this friendly family-run business is the perfect place for the locals to get bedding plants, perennials, shrubs, garden furniture, pots etc.

Virgin Active Health Club

A large health club tucked away off the main road. With membership you'll have access to 80 different classes a week, indoor pool, steam and sauna room. After the workout you can grab a nutritious meal in the cafe.

Highlander Foods

A local organic butcher with a range of meats, from organic Halal chicken to a variety of exotic meats including crocodile, antelope, rattle snake and many many more.

Allianz Park

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

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!


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!

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!

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.

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!

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.
