The Pumphouse

About The Pumphouse

The Pumphouse Dining Bar in Hornsey is one of London's most fabulous-looking restaurants. This very cool contemporary eaterie is retrofitted into a soaring, bright, Victorian pumphouse - a neighbourhood restaurant worth crossing town for. The authentic glazed bricks and lifting mechanisms are still here, a perfect setting for the cool bar lounge area with its pools of orange light, the leather and wood of the main dining room, the groovy mezzanine. There's a heated terrace outside so you can enjoy the first and last of the summer breezes. The seasonally-changing Italian menu features some new, traditional dishes alongside an inventive mix of modern Mediterranean cooking. The Pumphouse has sophistication, warmth and good times all in one spot.
