Review on The Old Dairy

The Old Dairy was built at Stroud Green in 1890, this grand Victorian building was originally home to the Friern Manor Dairy Company, but it now dispenses other comestibles and refreshments. Inside, there are exposed brick walls and steel girders, plus fascinating etchings of its former life still to be seen.

At the front there's now a room for 'lounging and loafing', complete with comfortable settees and cosy corners. By contrast, the main room is an enormous affair with two huge chandeliers at either end and an open kitchen at the back. The full menu mixes British classics with standards from the Euro-bistro repertoire - as in smoked haddock hash cake with hollandaise, grilled lemon sole meunière, calf's liver with mash and onion gravy or duck confit with rösti and red cabbage. Nursery favourites like steamed orange pudding bring up the rear alongside chocolate, praline and Amaretto tart.

You can also order snacks and pub grub at the bar (ploughman's, omelette Arnold Bennett, steak sandwiches, grilled kippers with poached eggs) to go with your chosen tipple.
