Pub name Name Address Description
Mossy Well 258 Muswell Hill Broadway London N10 3SH Muswell Hill takes its name from a medieval holy well and its hill-top location. The ‘mossy well’ became a place of pilgrimage after a Scottish king was said to have been cured here drinking the water. By the early 1800s, Belle Vue Lodge stood on the site of these premises. In 1900, it was replaced by the Express Dairy tea room, with a milk depot at the rear. In the early 1980s, the property was converted into licensed premises.
Victoria Stakes 1 Muswell Hill London N10 3TH Single-bar pub nestling in the foothills of Alexandra Palace, on the main Finsbury Park to Muswell Hill bus route. Its name (so it is beleieved) comes from a horse race (it was originally built as a coachouse & stables) and the theme is reinforced throughout the pub. The pub’s website has an interesting piece on its history.
Village Green 122 Fortis Green Road London N10 3HN Fifties pub initially named after the famous television pioneer – John Baird; the first broadcasts were made from nearby Alexandra Palace. A stack of old TV sets recognises this but in 2020 the pub has been operarted by Laines who changed the name to Village Green in homage to more recent local celebrities – The Kinks.
Famous Royal Oak 73 St James’s Lane Muswell Hill N10 3QY Modern replacement for an old pub, a pub having stood on this site for over 200 years, just below arches of old railway from Highgate to Alexandra Palace now providing a pleasant walkway and impressive vistas. One main bar, with pool table in a large extension to right-hand side, both areas being festooned with bric-a-brac. Main sporting events shown on TV. Large outside seating area at front with impressive hanging baskets. Quiz night on Thursday from 9.15pm. Light snacks available at all times and summer barbecues on the terrace. Live piano sessions every Wednesday evening 6pm-7pm. Plus a retro jukebox with classics from the 1960’s to the 00’s.
Furlong 87-89 Colney Hatch Lane Muswell Hill N10 1LR The original shop conversion by Andrew Marler later run by Tim Martin as his 1st Wetherspoons!!. Reopened in May 2017 after a re-fit and name change from Keenan’s to Furlong. Predominantly a Sports bar with Sky, BT and Racing UK available. Pub food available and Sunday lunches are planned. There is a garden area to the back of the pub with bench sating in the front. Three handpumps but just one ale on offer to start. Currently offering FREE POOL night on Thursdays; more events in the planning …..
Maid Of Muswell 121 Alexandra Park Road Muswell Hill N10 2DP Originally an off-license, opened as a pub by Bass Charrington in 1987. Has undergone a bit of a transformation with shades of gastro in its new furnishings and menu. There is a larger outside seating area and food is served from opening until 21.00 (20.00 Sunday), their website will give a good indication of what is on offer, including Sunday roasts. Stations are a good walk away, bus far more convenient. Offers a large selection of keg beers as well – “10 hand-picked beers to our collection. They’ll be on rotation daily but once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
Muswell Hillbilly Taproom 14 Avenue Mews Muswell Hill N10 3NP Nov 2023 – Taproom intends to have a regular guest cask ale dispensed in similar fashion to that seen at festivals.
