  • Really? I think the SGR side is more than ready for a local M&S. The City North residents will make good use of it for sure. (The Crouch End branch seems to do a brisk trade, despite being pretty tiny and close to three competitors). The differ…
  • No idea I'm afraid - I thought some eagle-eyed SGers might know.
  • Did anyone spot this socially distanced dance party / workout in the area yesterday?
  • A fantastic opportunity to support a local pub. There's some really great ready-to-heat dishes and fresh produce on offer - well worth picking up a few bits if you're popping for beer / wine. Certainly beats standing in the supermarket queue. Click…
  • How many times per week can the average local resident visit a deli?
  • This is the last of the big events for this year, I believe? So we can all settle in for a peaceful autumn. (You know, apart from the sirens, helicopters, building work, noisy neighbours, etc...)
  • All the info is here: https://www.haringey.gov.uk/libraries-sport-and-leisure/parks-and-open-spaces/events-and-activities/events-parks/large-and-major-events/hospitality-and-abode-park Music finishes at 10.30pm tonight and 10pm tomorrow.
  • Roasts are back at the Brave Sir Robin! New menu here: https://www.bravesirrobin.co.uk/food
  • Gutted to see Vittorio's closed - we shopped there at least once a week. His meats and cheese were great quality and much cheaper than elsewhere. He did say he hopes to open up again, though I imagine not on SGR. I wonder if SG's lack of daytime fo…
  • Just seen the new barriers under the bridge. I’m guessing this is deemed a ‘solution’ to the begging issue, that now leaves hundreds of commuters walking down the cycle lane. Wonder how long they plan to keep them up.
  • Ah, mystery solved. Dead Rabbits Saloon - 'whisky bar and burgers'. https://www.instagram.com/deadrabbitssaloon/
  • If one of the world's best bars has decided to open a sister site on Blackstock Road, I will eat several hats. Some interesting stuff opening up in that area, though. Top Cuvée - new wine bar/bistro from the people behind Three Sheets and Little Me…
  • Sad to read that Kjot + Eldur, who run the kitchen, are leaving. This Sunday is your last chance to try arguably the best roast in N4. Hope they replace them quickly!
  • Thought the whole chain had folded and remaining restaurants were just seeing out their lease and then closing. The one in Angel has been closed for quite a while.
  • We popped in once, could immediately smell that infamous carpet, but the lad behind the bar was really friendly. Didn't realise it was cash only so went across the road to get some, followed by the barman who had to buy ice and lemons. Think I was t…
  • @Scruffy Do you have a favourite pub in SG?
  • Pic for those interested: Footfall is limited on that stretch - good for them for doing what they can to stand out. For anyone that's yet to try it, the Scandi-influenced food is really good - good quality ingredients, cooked fresh. A defin…
  • Menu looks good - doesn't look like the sort of thing would attract hordes of families. It would be sad to write off a new addition to the 'hood on the basis that there may at some point be children in it - and that's coming from someone who would …
  • Anyone got a snap of the menu? Might be blind but can't find a website, social, anything...
  • @HolbornFox They had issues getting licenses etc, so didn't promote it much in case it all fell through. It is tucked away though, so they might need to start shouting about it! @Arkady That's a good looking menu. Lots of cool stuff opening in Coal…
  • It was packed on opening weekend (lots of people watching the world cup). Bit quieter on a recent Saturday visit but still a nice buzz. Seems popular with families because there are trampolines, a soft play area etc. They'll need to expand the food…
  • Goods Office. @Ilovegreyhounds Gilly's is moving to the West End. https://www.hot-dinners.com/Gastroblog/Latest-news/gilly-s-fry-bar-is-moving-from-finsbury-park-to-the-west-end
  • Sad to see Walnut closed - that is a tough location, especially with all the W3 buses they had parked in front of their windows for a few weeks. Maybe the issue with both Walnut and Traiteur was that the food was good but the prices were too high f…
  • "RIP The Edward Lear, Long Live The Owl & Hitchhiker" - reopens Thursday 3rd May. https://twitter.com/OwlHitchhiker/status/989788353066348545
  • So weird - nothing on their social channels. I’m not a regular but it always seemed busy enough. Can’t be a refurb surely - it’s only been ‘relaunched’ for a few years. Hope it’s not gone for good.
  • The 'incident' last week was a bit of trouble with some travellers. I like the White Lion, though think standards have slipped since Andy and most of his team left. The place is currently between managers so hopefully things will pick up when the n…
  • The Brave has really found its feet, especially on the food front. We've had two superb Sunday roasts in recent weeks and both times the place was busy and they had some low-key live music on. Went back on a quieter night for some comfort food - por…
  • Looks good and has had a few people in whenever I've been past, but the menu is a bit jack of all trades, master of none. Always a worry if you can't spell 'gyoza' or 'Szechuan' correctly!
  • Soft launch (with cash bar) - Thu 7th and Fri 8th December. Official launch party - 14th December. https://www.facebook.com/events/2017265595152502/ Food coming soon from Cue Point (BBQ), who are currently in residence at their sister pub The Rose…
  • Attempted theft reported at Bar Esteban last night - guy on a scooter with a hammer. They fought him off with chairs. https://twitter.com/barestebanN8/status/928198182118592512
