Typical London houses

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Arnos Grove is an area of north London, England, within the London Borough of Enfield. It is centred 7.5 miles (12 km) north of Charing Cross. It is adjacent to New Southgate. The natural grove, larger than today, was for many centuries the largest woodland in the chapelry of Southgate in the parish of Edmonton. It became inter-related with Arnos Park when its owner was permitted to enclose much of its area through the widespread legal practice of inclosure of the common land to create the former park, the heart of which is now public parkland. “

Are there any good pubs in Arnos Grove?

As Londoners, at Cozee we are deeply attached to our weekly attendance to our local pub. Why should you be different in the place where you are going to live? That is why we have been testing and reviewing all the pubs in Arnos Grove. As a matter of fact, we didn’t… But we would have loved to. Here is then the list of the greatest pubs of Arnos Grove

Pub name Name Address Description
Ranelagh 82 Bounds Green Road Bounds Green N11 2EU Impressive looking pub with a large, pleasant garden with a traditional wood-panelled interior, open fire in winter months. The beers available can change, has also had Adnams Broadside, Greene King IPA, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Wychwood Left Back. Occasional tap takeovers which seems to focus on “craft keg” beers, see their website for details and for their menus.
Springfield Tavern 133 Bounds Green Road London N11 2PP The newly refurbished Springfield Bar & Grill opened on September 27th 2013 but it now trades as The Springfield Tavern. It’s a great local for everybody in the Bounds Green area, showing all major live sports action and with live music at weekends – see their social media channels for details. It also has a Thai food offering – see website for full details. The new layout and decor is very impressive. It has lots of comfortable seating, its warm, clean and fresh.
Arnos Arms 338 Bowes Road New Southgate N11 1AN Emerging from Arnos Grove tube station, turn left and you can’t miss it. Formerly a Harvester, it is now being operated by Dan Fox, late of the Bull in Highgate, then the Bohemia /London Brewing Company. As well as ever-changing cask beers, prominently on display as you enter, there are eight craft kegs. However, they may only have one cask beer on offer to maintain standards. It is a large impressive building with seating outside on the front terrace. Inside it has been imaginatively refurbished, retaining a dining area to the left as you enter. But there is ample space for those that just want to enjoy a beer or two. Which is now something that can be heartily recommended. Bar billiards, table football, pin ball machine and traditional board games will keep all entertained, young and old! The three guest beers on opening night in late June 2017 were Redemption Trinity, Windsor&Eton Parklife and Thornbridge Wild Swan. But by mid June 2019, there was often only one real ale on offer.
