Where do Muswell Hill and surrounding areas locals go?

Fasta

Serving tasty pick and mix pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads, I sometimes grab my lunch from here.

Chooks

A delicious American-style restaurant serving mouth-watering chicken dishes. The buttermilk chicken made using their secret recipe is awesome!

Alexandra Palace

An impressive music venue hosting great bands such as Slayer, to Jack White, to the Prodigy!

The Laboratory Spa & Health Club

A beautiful, airy, bright gym with a spa and a fresh water swimming pool, which means no stinging eyes and great for children! They also put on excellent exercise classes too and there's no minimum contract.

Cheeses

From firm favourites to more unusual tastes, this cheese shop is a foodies dream!

The John Baird

Real ales, a beer garden and quiz nights on a Thursday and Sunday are why I love going to this local boozer!

The Priory Fish Bar

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

O'Neill's

Not your typical O'Neill's with its setting in a converted church. It still has its original features and a lively atmosphere at the weekend.

The Bald Faced Stag

With a rotating selection of guest ales and an excellent food menu, this is a great place to spend an afternoon, evening or both.

Walter Purkis & Sons

This family-run fishmongers sells high-quality fish at a great price. I always pop down on a Saturday to pick up something fresh for dinner...

Cilicia

Amazing quality and cheap Mediterranean/Cypriot food. The lamb parcels and breakfasts are yummy!

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink

A fantastic day out for all the family all year round!

W. Martyn

A real Muswell Hill institution, this tea and coffee retailer has been in business since 1897 selling their own brand products!

Planet Organic

The most amazing shop that stocks literally every organic food you can imagine, as well as a huge range of beauty, health and baby products. The store is always immaculate, there are loads of helpful staff around and best of all, there is a juice bar and coffee shop too.

Victoria Stakes

Perfect pub for dog owners, as it is pet friendly. It makes a great end to a walk around Alexandra Park. Food is amazing too!

The Challenge Playgroup runs on Friday mornings in St. James' Church Hall, Muswell Hill. The happy noises of children playing are like those of hundreds of playgroups around the country. But this playgroup is special. It is run for children with additional needs; for their siblings, parents, carers and grandparents too. Parents are welcome without their child too, if they attend nursery or school on that day.In a quiet haven next door to the designated play area is a sanctuary of fresh flowers, bean bags-and absolute quiet-parents can sit in here and read a newspaper or magazine, retreat into their own thoughts or even have a massage most weeks, whilst a CRB checked volunteer plays with their child next door. The playgroup is completely free of charge. Website
