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

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.

Beautiful, vintage-style café. Great for brunch.

Melange

French and Italian cuisines done well. This restaurant's rustic interior creates the perfect atmosphere for a date night or a catch up with friends. The set menu is great value for money too.

Park Road Pools and Fitness

The outdoor Lido is fun! If you are not feeling brave, there are indoor pools too and fitness classes. This is a great leisure centre to take all of the family, with a children's soft play area, children's yoga and martial arts classes.

This bar is the perfect destination for after-work drinks. They have happy hour deals every single day and a quiz on a Monday that's always good fun.

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!

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.

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.

"Alexandra Palace, or 'Ally Pally' as it is affectionately known, was built as an exhibition hall in 1873. However, it burnt down only a few days after its inauguration and was rebuilt in the following 2 years."

I love everything that Crouch End has to offer, from shops, to cafés, to cosy pubs...

Vikki Broad

In the centre of Crouch End is its Clock Tower, erected in memorial to local councillor Henry Reader Williams.

I love going to Alexandra Park on the weekend - the views over London are second-to-none!

What locals say about Crouch End

  1. 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 of the restaurants - Banners, their Jerk Chicken with rice and peas and fried plantain is the best I have ever tasted, and for the bars - kissthesky, tasty and unique cocktails and a weekly quiz on a Monday night! I'll see you there!
