Where do Turnpike Lane locals go?

Ducketts Common

Green space next to Turnpike Lane Station that has amazing basketball courts (the best in North London!), a free outdoor gym and a children's play area.

Beans and Barley

A recently opened coffee shop on Green Lanes. They do an amazing granola fruit yoghurt in a jar!

Selale

One of the best Turkish Restaurants in North London. Always busy, especially on weekends when you have to reserve seats to avoid standing outside. Amazing customer service, great food and a reasonable price for the standard. You should try the lamb and chicken grill.

Salim's

North London's best curry house and probably north London's best kept secret. It's a small restaurant and takeaway on Turnpike Lane that prepares freshly made curries!

Harringay Local Store

A farmers' market in a shop that even sells vinyl!

Bun and Bar

I love the amazing cocktails at this burger joint!

Yasar Halim

The best place for cheap fruit and veg on Green Lanes.

The Great Northern Railway Tavern

Weekly quiz nights, super beer garden and a stunning building.

The Three Compasses

Modern trendy décor, but underneath it's a classic pub. Friendly atmosphere, super food, and darts and pool at the back.

Gokyuzu

An absolute favourite for residents of The Ladder. This is the best of a large number of Turkish restaurants on Green Lanes. Portions are big and cheap. Even has a rave review in the Evening Standard! Check out their TripAdvisor ratings.

The Banc

Amazing home-cooked burgers, steaks and more in a former Barclays bank building. Owned by two friends who have also bought the coffee shop across the road!

Elsie

Cute and funky café with some fun artwork, a real gem.

The Priory Fish Bar

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

Alexandra Park

Boating lake, golf course, deer sanctuary - this park has it all!

"In March 1918, self-proclaimed World's Greatest Magician Chung Ling Soo (or Bill Robinson as his parents knew him!) performed his world famous "catch a bullet with his teeth" trick at the Wood Green Empire. Sadly, it didn't work and it him square in the chest."
