I go here for my manicure and pedicure every two weeks, I love it because it's a family run salon very personal and the prices are very reasonable.

Local resident

"The Black Horse is great but we're spoilt for choice with lots of pubs and bars in the area. To name a few, The Reks bar, The Arkley Village Inn and Dining and the fully refurbished The Gate are all fantastic too."

  1. About Barnet

    Barnet, also referred to as Chipping Barnet or High Barnet, is a suburban development built around a twelfth-century settlement and is located 10 miles (16 km) north-west of Charing Cross. Chipping Barnet is the name of the Parliamentary constituency covering the local area - the word "Chipping" denotes the presence of a market (one was established here in the thirteenth century and persists to this day). Since the opening of the railway, development has increased considerably, especially in the west of the area near Arkley.
