The Priory Fish Bar

Looks basic but the chips are the best tasting 'classic fish and chip shop chips' in Hornsey. Yum yum.

The Three Compasses

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

Bun and Bar

I love the amazing cocktails at this burger joint!

Kiss the Sky

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.

Yasar Halim

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

Monkeynuts

This is an awesome steak restaurant. I go here frequently with my friends and family, I really can't recommend it enough!

The Great Northern Railway Tavern

Weekly quiz nights, super beer garden and a stunning building.

The Queens

This pub has been standing in Crouch End since 1899, so it's a real local institution. The kitchen serves great gastropub food and a delicious Sunday roast that's always guaranteed to leave you full!

Salim's

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!

Freemans

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.

Harringay Local Store

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

Ducketts Common

Green space next to Turnpike Lane Station that has amazing basketball courts (the best in North London!), a free outdoor gym and a children's play area.

Riley

This ice cream café sells amazing ice cream! There's always a queue right down the road - I can't get enough!

Pulp

An independent hairdressers with the loveliest staff. I always feel welcome and they do a fantastic job!

Julie

"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 lo... more

  1. About Hornsey

    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.
