Where do Muswell Hill locals go?

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink

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

Feast on the Hill

From a full English breakfast to a ribeye steak in the evening, this restaurant keeps us locals smiling all through the day.

The Scullery Cookshop

Any cooks dream, this shop stocks everything from everyday items to the more obscure things the recipe books demand!

Fasta

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

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!

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!

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 Priory Fish Bar

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

Alexandra Palace

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

The Flower Seller

This local florist is the perfect place to pick up flowers for that special someone in your life...

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...

Coffee Club

This is a lovely little coffee shop run by two sisters, next to the new Smithfield Square development and Sainsbury's.

Cilicia

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

Chooks

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

"The best part of living in Muswell Hill is the cafe and bar scene, which is surrounded by buildings and parkland from various architectural eras. Also for parents, schools of both the private and state sector are of high academic standards and are in close proximity to Wanstead."

"The air is good, the views are great. It's green round here, We've got Ally Pally and Highgate and Queens Woods. A lovely, villagey feel. Its communications to the City are excellent. I wouldn't live anywhere else!"

Perfect, and it also has some great st... more
