Victoria Stakes
Venue says An independent local pub with a traditional spirit and great, big heart.

Since recovering from a severe fire in October 2016, the Victoria Stakes has been working hard to get back to the former glory of the family-, dog- and comedy-friendly pub that the residents of Muswell Hill enjoyed. Now they're very much back in action. 

Those settling in for a drink can savour a beer selection including Brooklyn and Camden Breweries, Newcastle Brown and Hammerton. Plus wine, cocktails and the usual pub fare. If you're after some a little more hearty, tuck into something from the seasonal British menu, such as ribeye of beef, a short-rib cheeseburger or whole lemon sole. Bar snack include buttermilk fried chicken, chicken katsu scotch eggs, hand-cut chips and more.

Events are regularly hosted here, from private weddings to open-to-all comedy nights and even post-natal classes.

Our doors are (almost) always open, so pop in for an impromptu supper in the courtyard, a pint with a four legged friend or to celebrate a special occasion in our first floor dining room. See you soon.

Beautiful pub that has been restored to glory by young owners , Ben and Lucy . Menu is seasonal and fresh , service excellent . Highlights are the Sunday Roast and the more formal upstairs dining room . The terraced back yard is open all year round . A fantastic asset for our local community and Muswell Hill and Crouch End's many visitors .

A super victorian pub North London! Excellent food and a great selection of wine and craft beer. It's in a great location near Alexandra Palace park, so after a stroll in park you can enjoy a meal or just a drink in the pub or in the pubs lovely backyard. The staff is wonderful an attentive, and I am so happy to have this on my doorstep!

The food at Victoria Stakes is genuinely superb. Forget 'pub grub' or 'Gastro Pub' this is restaurant standard - classy, innovative and down right yummy! The staff are charming and the Comedy nights are fantastic (i've seen some really big names performing there which is great in an intimate setting). I loved The Yard outside area for alfresco dining this summer, now i'm fully intending to book up for a cosy autumn Sunday roast as they're getting rave reviews from the locals too!

Clarissa M

Delicious food with a menu that caters for Vegetarian's also. Friendly atmosphere with attentive service, all followed with a speculator ale and wine list , plus various entertainment all under one roof. I arranged a birthday party in the private room upstairs , the staff went out of their way to accommodate all requests. The evening was a great success, with much fun had by all.

Great food and wonderful atmosphere. I've had meals here that I would have paid double for in the West End. Happy to have it as my local.

Much improved food & service. Cracking good Sunday Lunch (esp after a wander round the Farmers Market) and a fine array of independent beers and wines too. A fine local pub.
