Where do Harringay and surrounding areas locals go?

Harringay Local Store

A farmers' market in a shop that even sells vinyl!


North London's best curry house and probably north London's best kept secret. It's a small restaurant and takeaway on Turnpike Lane that prepares freshly made curries!

The Banc

Amazing home-cooked burgers, steaks and more in a former Barclays bank building. Owned by two friends who have also bought the coffee shop across the road!

Yasar Halim

The best place for cheap fruit and veg on Green Lanes.


One of the best Turkish Restaurants in North London. Always busy, especially on weekends when you have to reserve seats to avoid standing outside. Amazing customer service, great food and a reasonable price for the standard. You should try the lamb and chicken grill.


An absolute favourite for residents of The Ladder. This is the best of a large number of Turkish restaurants on Green Lanes. Portions are big and cheap. Even has a rave review in the Evening Standard! Check out their TripAdvisor ratings.

Fifty Five

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

The Faltering Fullback

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

Beans and Barley

A recently opened coffee shop on Green Lanes. They do an amazing granola fruit yoghurt in a jar!

With so much to do and see in Crouch End, there's no wonder why it's such a popular place to live....

Simply one of the nicest Thai meals outside of Thailand.


The prettiest tailors in North London?

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