Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

I heard some gossip last night that Jamie Oliver was sniffing around Crouch End, possibly taking over the current Barclays branch. It would certainly make a beautiful restaurant with those lovely, and very rare, curved front windows.

Maybe Barclays will move back to where it apparently once was - the old KFC!

I've also heard people talking about Nando's though to me that sounds less likely as there's already one on Stroud Green Road.

Most people have Nando's down for what was Pizza Bella. This is a much more exciting rumour.

I ate once in a Jamie's Italian place at Heathrow. I thought it was pretty good. I ate last week in Bistro Aix. It was a night when they had a special offer on through the loyalty scheme. It was packed. The meal was good, but i had to send the bill back to get the discount.

It's all gone quiet on Pizza Bella again... seems to be moving very slowly.

As much as I hate the idea of chain resturants moving into Crouch End, there's an increasing number of empty units appearing - especially around the clock tower - which is a great shame.

I just wish someone, anyone, would sort out Bouga. It's been an eyesore for years and years now.

at least there's a to let sign on Bouga now, so it's actually on the market, which is a tiny step in the right direction i guess. 

Does anyone know what's happening to the old bookstore premises next to Waitrose? 

A Jamie Italian would be great! And to get shot of KFC even better. 

I think the lease has been taken by Waitrose so they can extend their tentacles.

That would make sense. I wonder if they'll put in a proper cafe so everyone can get their free teas and coffees. That could really impact local coffee shops

The main thing they need is more flippin' tills - it's a nightmare on the weekend.

That's why I never shop there, I can't bloody get to anywhere to pay!!!
