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.

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

Girasole

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Frank

"I have lived in Upper Holloway for 8 months now; well, since I moved to London from Canada. The nearby streets are lined with late Victorian houses which adds to the history of the area. I really like the place, my residential street is very quiet, and it's only 4 minutes walk from Holloway Road and 10 minutes from Archway station, very convenient for commuting to job, going out in trendy Upper Street or buzzing West End. ... more

"The original main route through Holloway was for driving cattle to the meat market at Smithfield. The route was in such disrepair by the late 1200s, that the Bishop of London built a new toll road that is now the route of the A1."
