Hot Pepper Jelly

This delightful café is great for coffee or lunch in the afternoon. It caters for vegetarians and vegans and serves gluten-free options too.

Pandan Leaf

Simply one of the nicest Thai meals outside of Thailand.

Fifty Five

A delightful café that's very child friendly. They have a children's play area and gluten-free treats too!

Monkeynuts

This is an awesome steak restaurant. I go here frequently with my friends and family, I really can't recommend it enough!

Banner's

If you ever find yourself very hungry, head on down to Banner's because the portions are huge! It's definitely very good value for money and the menu is so extensive, there's something for everyone.

Maynard Arms

Everything you'd want in a local pub - a lovely garden, tasty food and a great atmosphere all through the week.

The Queens

This pub has been standing in Crouch End since 1899, so it's a real local institution. The kitchen serves great gastropub food and a delicious Sunday roast that's always guaranteed to leave you full!

Elsie

Cute and funky café with some fun artwork, a real gem.

Balkan Bites

Balkan and Middle Eastern street foods combined, I love popping in for a quick and cheap lunch. They make traditional pastry bourekas that are so delicious and morish, I can't get enough!

The Great Northern Railway Tavern

Weekly quiz nights, super beer garden and a stunning building.

Freemans

I often visit this butchers if I'm having guests over for dinner. The quality of their meat is excellent and they're clearly very knowledgeable about what they do.

Victoria Stakes

Perfect pub for dog owners, as it is pet friendly. It makes a great end to a walk around Alexandra Park. Food is amazing too!

Trattoria Terra

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

Ginger & Mint

This healthy café and juice bar is the place to go if you're looking for a guilt-free treat. The juices are delicious and a real pick-me-up if you're having a long day at work.

The Three Compasses

Modern trendy décor, but underneath it's a classic pub. Friendly atmosphere, super food, and darts and pool at the back.

Local resident

"What I love about Crouch End is the vibrancy of the local bars and restaurants; as well as the proximity to the gorgeous greenery of Alexandra Palace, the convenience of being so close to Wood Green's shops and cinemas, and the short bus ride to Finsbury Park which takes you to town on either the Victoria or Piccadilly Lines in minutes. I have lived in London only two years, but would not want to live anywhere else. Pick o... more

"The tradition of "Swearing on the Horns" originated in the pubs around Highgate and involved swearing under 'oath' the commitment to the merriment and debauchery that would ensue, followed by the kissing of a pair of animal horns or a pretty woman."
