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.

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.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Crouch End, Hornsey, Archway, Harringay, Muswell Hill, Finsbury Park, Highgate, Wood Green, Tufnell Park and Dartmouth Park

"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."

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

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!
