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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Amazing gift shop in the heart of Crouch End. So convenient, always able to quickly pick up a quirky card and a gift.

Hornsey is ideally located between the shopping malls and cheap shops of Turnpike lane and the adorable boutiques and trendy restaurants of Crouch end. There is a quiet feeling over here, as if you were far, far away from the madness of the city. It feels like living in a village, there is a great sense of community and a will to cultivate everyone's differences but in a true honest way (not just to be cool and open). I love walking around and glimpsing at Ally Pally perched on the hill over there or crouch end's clock tower here. There are a thousands things to do and try (swinging, art house, live music, the oldest comedy night in London started here fyi, plays, drinks, restaurants...), all little shops have delicious and quality products. We are looking to buy our first home and unfortunately cannot afford to stay here but there is not doubt we will come back on a regular basis just for the unique atmosphere and see the friends we will be leaving here.
Great primary and secondary schools on a really interesting High Street with independent shops and fab cafes. And a beautiful park!

Hornsey is a district in London Borough of Haringey in north London in England. Whilst Hornsey was formerly the name of a parish and later a municipal borough of Middlesex, today, the name refers only to the London district. It is an inner-suburban area located 6.2 miles (10 km) north of Charing Cross. The boundaries of Hornsey neighbourhood today are not clearly defined since the Municipal Borough of Hornsey was abolished in 1965. To the north of Hornsey High Street, and immediately to its south, the area is largely public sector housing, save for the more upmarket development by the New River. Between the eastern end of the High Street and the bottom of Muswell Hill, the character of the area changes dramatically. Much of this part is the Warner Estate built up with large well-appointed late Victorian houses. To the south east of the High Street is Priory Park, a pleasant urban green space. The High Street retains much of its character and is full of handy shops and eateries. The eastern section retains strong echoes of its rural past and hosts the 13th Century tower which is all that remains of St Mary's Church.
