Where do Finsbury Park locals go?

The Faltering Fullback

This is a brilliant local pub with a massive decked beer garden, including covered areas for rainy days!

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.

Rowans Tenpin Bowl

This is a legendary late-night hotspot in Finsbury Park. It is open until 2:30am Friday and Saturday and has karaoke too.

Park Theatre

Locals of Finsbury Park and Stroud Green are very proud to have this new theatre in the area. It opened in 2013 and has very varied performances. It's right behind Finsbury Park Station.

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.

Girasole

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

Osteria Tufo

The owner is from Naples and it's a super friendly Italian. Very pretty place, service is wonderful and it has freshly made pasta and homemade puds.

The Arsenal

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

The Front Room Cafe

Super friendly local café with an amazing breakfast selection. Nice place to spend a 'work from home' day. Outdoor seating too when the weather is good.

The prettiest tailors in North London?

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Out of the Attic

A fab place for vintage finds and antiques, the stock is often spilling out onto the pavements.

Street N4

Burgers, hot dogs and burritos with cocktails and beer!

Garufa

Forget The Hawksmoor. This Argentinian steak restaurant serves amazing meat and has a very cosy ambience.

My Cottage Café

Tiny little family run café with delicious Lebanese food - it's a real surprise!

Rebecca

"Finsbury Park is lively, without being scary; independent without being up-itself. Stroud Green Road had some excellent places to eat and just minutes away you can find a peaceful haven, spotting jays along the hidden treasure of Parkland Walk, a former train line that is now nature reserve."

  1. About Finsbury Park

    Finsbury Park is a 46 hectare (115 acre) public park in the London Borough of Haringey. Officially part of the London area of Harringay, it is also adjacent to Stroud Green, the Finsbury Park district and Manor House. It was one of the first of the great London parks laid out in the Victorian era. The park provides a large green space in central north London. It has a mix of open ground, formal gardens, avenues of mature trees and an arboretum area with a mix of more unusual trees. There is also a lake, a children's play area, a cafe and an art exhibition space. The stretch of Seven Sisters Road running past Finsbury Park is open to the park on the west side, and on the east side are large Victorian villas now mainly used as hotels.
