Where do Tollington Park locals go?

Park Theatre

Locals of Finsbury Park and Stroud Green are very proud to have this new theatre in the area. It opened in 2013 and has very varied performances. It's right behind Finsbury Park Station.

My Cottage Café

Tiny little family run café with delicious Lebanese food - it's a real surprise!

Osteria Tufo

The owner is from Naples and it's a super friendly Italian. Very pretty place, service is wonderful and it has freshly made pasta and homemade puds.

The prettiest tailors in North London?

The Arsenal

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

The Faltering Fullback

This is a brilliant local pub with a massive decked beer garden, including covered areas for rainy days!

Rowans Tenpin Bowl

This is a legendary late-night hotspot in Finsbury Park. It is open until 2:30am Friday and Saturday and has karaoke too.

Girasole

A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

The Front Room Cafe

Super friendly local café with an amazing breakfast selection. Nice place to spend a 'work from home' day. Outdoor seating too when the weather is good.

Street N4

Burgers, hot dogs and burritos with cocktails and beer!

The Old Dairy

This pub has an amazing history, as it used to be a creamery (hence the name!) and is in a stunning building. Food is great and it has just had a refurb, so is a lovely place to go any time of the day.

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Max's

Just opposite Crouch Hill Station, this restaurant serves ENORMOUS sandwiches and booze, perfect for an evening feast, as it is only open from 5pm in the week.

The Edward Lear

A pub on Holloway Road with plenty of cosy booths and a pretty interior. It also has Pimms and Lemonade on tap!

Trattoria Terra

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