The Starting Gate is highly recommended for post funeral receptions and wakes after the service at New Southgate and Islington crematoriums.

Combining the best in British pub hospitality with individuality, character and quirky charm, The Starting Gate is just a stone’s throw from London’s iconic Alexandra Palace.

The perfect setting for a laid-back yet distinctly memorable drinking and dining experience. Whether you’re looking for a lazy lunch or family dinner, The Starting Gate offers flavoursome food, an explorative drinks menu and an authentic, homely atmosphere to suit all occasions.

Built in 1875 and now Grade II listed, The Starting Gate’s name is true to the pub’s origins as the starting point of the former Alexandra Park Racecourse, colloquially known as ‘The Frying Pan’ on account of its shape.

With traditional stained wood interior, sumptuous Victorian period features and contemporary touches, The Starting Gate is dog-friendly and boasts a charming courtyard beer garden for those milder months. Attracting a diverse clientele, this unique pub gives a glimpse of London old and holds the authenticity of a true British local at its heart.

Conveniently situated opposite Alexandra Palace mainline station, the pub offers a perfect meeting spot before heading to the Palace or Park, where some of the best panoramic views of London are to be enjoyed.

Offering a spot of urban tranquillity, The Starting Gate is a unique pub amongst London’s many watering holes, in an often unexplored area of the capital that is without doubt worth a visit.
