The Old Dairy is literally just that. Built in 1890 it was originally the site of a dairy and certain features within this huge pub such as the exposed brick walls, the steel girders and the magnificent etchings on the Crouch Hill side are evidence of its previous life.

Yup...definitely worth returning to!
I came here last night as I was "home alone", yet I somehow wanted to be among other people. So I hopped on the #210, which departs right in front of my house and drops me off right in front of this lovely local pub! And when I walked in, I immediately felt completely at ease and welcome.
The very generous space offers a variety of seating opportunities:...more
The Old Dairy is a large, handsomely decorated pub on the corner of Stroud Green Road and Crouch Hill Road.
The inside of the pub is divided into three main rooms, though within the largest there are various booths and cubby holes. As Claire L mentioned in her review, whilst it is a sizable place it still manages to feel cosy. I imagine this is due to the rather odd mix of comfortable chairs...more
