Where do N6 locals go?

Highgate Bathing Ponds

Tucked away just off Millfield Lane, it is a lovely quiet place to go and relax and walk - and even better when it is sunny!

Bistro Laz

A rustic Mediterranean restaurant open from 7am! Grab breakfast in the morning and more traditional Middle-Eastern fare in the evening.


Quality Russian shop selling a wide array of products from authentic Russian meats, fish and cheese, to homemade cakes and pastries, which you can sit in and eat in their café. The ice-cream comes highly recommended.

Kenwood House Park

Amazing views and scenery and home to a Henry Moore sculpture. It's the perfect place for a summer picnic.

Trattoria Terra

Beautiful little Italian with fantastic food and wine, a welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

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.


Best chippy in North London, or even the whole of London! You can even sit in too.

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...

The Flower Seller

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


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


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

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.


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


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 John Baird

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