Time Out review posted Jul 23 2012:
As the name suggests, the building was a Victorian dairy, which sets the tone both outside (there are some stunning friezes on the exterior walls) and inside this Real Pubs venture. Exposed brickwork and unusual angles create all sorts of cosy corners in what is actually a very large space, and locals of all ages come to enjoy the friendly welcome and above-average food.

Crouch Hill is a street in north London, England, running between Crouch End and Stroud Green in the boroughs of Haringey and Islington. It is not to be confused with Crouch End Hill which runs between Crouch End and Hornsey Rise. (The two roads meet at a “y” junction in Crouch End and together the two routes constitute the southern access to Crouch End Broadway).
The street has a railway station of the same name on the Islington (south) slope of the hill, which is served by the Gospel Oak to Barking line. It is part of London Buses route W7.
The Parkland Walk
Crouch Hill uses a bridge to cross over a public walkway called the Parkland Walk, a public foot and cycle path and linear Park that stretches from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace, and follows some of the course of the Northern Heights planned rail extension to the Northern Line, abandoned on 9 February 1954. To the south of that bridge is the entrance gate providing vehicle access to Crouch Hill Park and to Ashmount Primary School. (Other access points to Crouch Hill Park are pedestrian or cycle only.)
Balcombe Street Siege
In 1974, rooms in a house on the Islington side of Crouch Hill were rented by IRA members who were subsequently arrested at the end of the Balcombe Street Siege.
Finsbury Park is a 46 hectares public park in the London Borough of Haringey. Officially part of the London neighbourhood of Harringay, it is also adjacent to Stroud Green, the Finsbury Park district and Manor House.
The area is centred on Finsbury Park station, a major bus, rail and tube interchange near the southern end of the 46-hectare (110-acre) public park of the same name. Both the station and the park have seen much public investment on improvements in recent years.
The surrounding area has a cosmopolitan feel, as reflected by the wide variety of shops and establishments on Seven Sisters Road, Blackstock Road and Stroud Green Road. The North London Central Mosque (formerly the Finsbury Park Mosque, which drew attention for extremist activity before a change in leadership in 2003) is located here. Arsenal Football Club’s new Emirates Stadium is nearby. Stroud Green is a small part of the Finsbury Park area.
Among other groups, Finsbury Park is home to a significant Irish community, and has hosted the London Fleadh/London Feis on multiple occasions.
