The beautiful urban village of Muswell Hill, is a brilliant place for you and your dog to potter at the end of their Fetch & Follow collar and lead. There’s a nice mix of boutiques, independent cafes, restaurants and pubs, who will happily accept your dog’s patronage, as well as plenty of green spaces on their North London doorstep including Alexandra Park and Highgate Woods. If you’re a London-dweller yet to check out this area, we highly recommend a visit with your dog in tow and here's our picks of top spots to visit.
43 The Broadway, Muswell Hill, N10 3HA.
Open Monday to Fri 8am to 11pm; Saturday and Sunday 9am to 11pm
North & Tenn
Aside from a simple yet satisfying menu of hot salt beef, chicken soup, smoked salmon bagels, filled crepes, speciality coffee, pastries, cakes and baked goods from Celtic Bakery, North & Tenn digs dogs. Milo the Schnauzer is their resident hound, and you will catch him both in the shop and on their Insta-feed along with other doggy guests. Dogs are welcome both inside and out, and their outdoor seating is perfect for watching all of Muswell Hill and their dog pass by.
123 Muswell Hill Road, N10 3HS. Open daily from 8.30am until 5pm, except Sunday when they open at 9.30am
Fetch & Follow are fans of the sweet stuff, particularly after a long dog walk and Evelina’s is a lovely place to get a sugar fix with your dog at your side. Take your pick from classics such as Lemon Drizzle, Gingerbread Loaf, Coffee Walnut and Cherry Tart or popular American flavours of Red Velvet and Brownies. For something a little more fancy, there’s Macarons and an extensive patisserie menu with treats such as Chocolate Feuilletine and Mousse Mojito Tart. There’s also a small brunch menu if you need a bit of savoury before your sweet.
56 Fortis Green Road, N10 3HN. Open Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 6pm; Sunday 9.30am to 6pm
Dog Friendly Shopping
We've always got something to purchase on our errand list so being able to browse and shop, accompanied by your dog makes for a more joyful experience without the pressure of having to get home to tend to their needs. In terms of dog-friendly shopping, we can personally vouch for Sweaty Betty (80 Muswell Hill Broadway), Oliver Bonas (141 Muswell Hill) and Le Creuset (74 Muswell Hill Broadway) all welcoming dogs. You will also find charity shops for All Dogs Matter (243 Muswell Hill Broadway) and Dogs Trust (64 Fortis Green Road) where you can shop to pay forward to dogs less fortunate than your own. On Sundays, venture further for Alexander Palace’s Farmers Market, enjoying a lovely walk through Highgate Woods through to Alexander Palace en route.
