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.

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.

This delightful café is great for coffee or lunch in the afternoon. It caters for vegetarians and vegans and serves gluten-free options too.

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!

French and Italian cuisines done well. This restaurant's rustic interior creates the perfect atmosphere for a date night or a catch up with friends. The set menu is great value for money too.

From sushi, to curries, to noodle dishes, there's plenty to choose from on this restaurant's menu. The décor is cool too, both inside and out.

If you ever find yourself very hungry, head on down to Banner's because the portions are huge! It's definitely very good value for money and the menu is so extensive, there's something for everyone.

This healthy café and juice bar is the place to go if you're looking for a guilt-free treat. The juices are delicious and a real pick-me-up if you're having a long day at work.

Amazing gift shop in the heart of Crouch End. So convenient, always able to quickly pick up a quirky card and a gift.

"Alexandra Palace, or 'Ally Pally' as it is affectionately known, was built as an exhibition hall in 1873. However, it burnt down only a few days after its inauguration and was rebuilt in the following 2 years."

A very diverse area with great transport links - Oxford Circus in only 15 minutes on the Victoria line. The professionals moving in from Crouch End and Finsbury Park, along with the investment, will prompt even more change over the coming years.
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 love walking around and glimpsing at Ally Pally perched on the hill over there or crouch end's clock tower here. There are a thousands things to do and try (swinging, art house, live music, the oldest comedy night in London started here fyi, plays, drinks, restaurants...), all little shops have delicious and quality products. We are looking to buy our first home and unfortunately cannot afford to stay here but there is not doubt we will come back on a regular basis just for the unique atmosphere and see the friends we will be leaving here.
Great shops, grocers, bakers, restaurants, cafes and bars with live music and a lively atmosphere.
Great primary and secondary schools on a really interesting High Street with independent shops and fab cafes. And a beautiful park!
What I love about Crouch End is the vibrancy of the local bars and restaurants; as well as the proximity to the gorgeous greenery of Alexandra Palace, the convenience of being so close to Wood Green's shops and cinemas, and the short bus ride to Finsbury Park which takes you to town on either the Victoria or Piccadilly Lines in minutes. I have lived in London only two years, but would not want to live anywhere else. Pick of the restaurants - Banners, their Jerk Chicken with rice and peas and fried plantain is the best I have ever tasted, and for the bars - kissthesky, tasty and unique cocktails and a weekly quiz on a Monday night! I'll see you there!
