Where do Archway locals go?

The Old Dairy

This pub has an amazing history, as it used to be a creamery (hence the name!) and is in a stunning building. Food is great and it has just had a refurb, so is a lovely place to go any time of the day.

Trattoria Terra

Beautiful little Italian with fantastic food and wine, a welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

Max's

Just opposite Crouch Hill Station, this restaurant serves ENORMOUS sandwiches and booze, perfect for an evening feast, as it is only open from 5pm in the week.

Stingray

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

Bistro Laz

A rustic Mediterranean restaurant open from 7am! Grab breakfast in the morning and more traditional Middle-Eastern fare in the evening.

The Bull & Last

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

Pandan Leaf

Simply one of the nicest Thai meals outside of Thailand.

Dirty Burger

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

Pulp

An independent hairdressers with the loveliest staff. I always feel welcome and they do a fantastic job!

Highgate Bathing Ponds

Tucked away just off Millfield Lane, it is a lovely quiet place to go and relax and walk - and even better when it is sunny!

Railway Tavern

One of the best pubs in Crouch End located on Crouch End Hill, with friendly staff, good food and an amazing beer garden.

Tootoomoo

From sushi, to curries, to noodle dishes, there's plenty to choose from on this restaurant's menu. The décor is cool too, both inside and out.

The King's Head

This pub is great for their food and range of beers and ales. They even hold comedy nights and live music sessions here.

Dunn's

From cakes for special occasions to sandwiches at lunchtime, this local bakery has been serving Crouch End for years and they're certainly my first port of call for baked treats!

Girasole

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

  1. About Archway

    Archway is an area of north London in the London Borough of Islington. The name derives from the arch built between Highgate and Hornsey in 1896. A tunnel was originally planned for the Highgate bypass (to join the Great North Road by avoiding the steep Highgate Hill road and narrow roads of Highgate village) but this failed due to repeated collapses. It is said that it was at Archway that Dick Whittington heard the Bow Bells ringing and returned back to London.
