Where do Muswell Hill locals go?

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!

Cilicia

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

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!

Fasta

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

W. Martyn

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

Cheeses

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

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.

Alexandra Palace

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

Chooks

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

Chriskitch

A very cosy and cute little café in Muswell Hill. They make very tasty salads and freshly baked homemade cakes that everyone will fall in love with. It's definitely a great place to go for brunch or just a nice cup of tea!

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!

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.

The Priory Fish Bar

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

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.

Maria

"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!"

"Muswell Hill has a very friendly and long established community, as people who move here tend to stay. The quality of housing is excellent with wide leafy streets and many Victorian and Edwardian properties. The main attraction however is the quality of the state schools with Muswell Hill Primary, Tetherdown and Rhodes Avenue all getting top ratings and secondary schools, Fortismere and Alexandra Park School getting "Outs... more

"It is leafy, clean, safe and has lovely Edwardian houses. Parts of it are walkable to Highgate tube, lovely roads such as Cranley Gardens, Etheldene Ave etc are about a 12 min walk to Highgate tube. Feels like a village with friendly local people and has good shops and independent restaurants. Only 5 miles from central London and bordering Crouch End on one side and Highgate on the other. Perfect, and it also has some great st... more
