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.

We pour our hearts and souls into every dish we serve and develop our menus based on your feedback. Ours chefs work tirelessly to produce dishes that our customers will enjoy, but it’s a two-way street, so if you think your brother’s salted cod, or your granny’s rhubarb crumble should take a star turn, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

The Victoria Stakes is a freehouse so you’ll find beers from independent brewers and foreign imports. Our wine list has also be been carefully curated to compliment our menu and our customer’s taste.

Coming soon – The Bottle Shop… watch this space…

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.
