The Hideaway

Squaremeal Review of The Hideaway ?

This ‘neighbourhood bar & kitchen’ resembles an easy-going hang-out in an American college town – the sort of place you visit for great pizza, beer & music. Relax on mismatching Formica, fibreglass & schoolroom chairs & bite into crispy stone-baked dough with flavour-packed toppings, then dip the crust into punchy aïoli. There are zingy salads too, & you can dig eager spoons into banoffee pie or chocolate brownie for dessert. The unpretentious staff mix classic cocktails with a twist. There are also some decent wines, but a bottle of chilled beer from the appealing list (Vedett, Duvel, Anchor Steam, Sierra Nevada) is the perfect pizza partner. The yard out back – a pleasant, secluded summer spot – is draped with vines, while the bar downstairs has a packed calendar of live music, DJs, quizzes, & open mic nights.

Editor's pick Number 114 Junction Road N19 is a soberly decorated building about half way between Archway and Tufnell Park stations on the Northern Line and quietly announcing itself as “The Hideaway”. Venture inside for a treat, because behind this modest exterior is one of the warmest bars in London, where owners Tom Allerton and Matt Selwyn have created an oasis for the discerning consumer who wants pleasant surroundings with an opportunity to talk and eat without having to shout down a jukebox or canned music.

Great value for money – had delicious pizza and good wine. Took us a little while to find as it was nestled in with a row of shops but fantastic little place once inside. The person we spoke to behind the bar was a real character, made us feel welcome. They have a lot of events going on in the basement so we're going back soon to one of the live music nights.

I went to The Hideaway with my girlfriend after a friend recommended it – their main food is pizza which I have to say was among the best pizza I've ever eaten – my girlfriend agreed as they were very light which is apparently ideal for the healthy eaters among us. We tried a couple of their cocktails (rude not to, there were some very tempting choices) which put us in the mood for heading down to the basement afterwards to listen to some live music. We'll definitely be returning in the summer...
