A very good review from Steve of N21 says it all,this is certainly a large pub with several different sections,and the wait to be seated dining area,although initially infront of the open kitchen,opens out into a formal dining room with it's own street frontage.The section at the apex of the building looks a good place to sup,but it had been hired for a function on my Saturday afternoon visit,and several alcove tables also had reserved signs.The clientele is mainly young professionals and many babies and toddlers were present inside.The high ceilings cause noise to reverberate off the wooden floor,so I wouldn't say that my visit was relaxing,but the pub is functional.You can eat food anywhere (Starters around £5-7,mains £13-18) ,but the lack of demarcation detracts from the pub atmosphere,while surprisingly the restaurant was hardly used.
The bar has 5 handpumps with GK IPA and an Old Dairy (Up & Under) as regulars with guests on my trip Signature Brew Wild Winter,Dorset Brewing Keep Calm and Swing Low and Mad Squirrel Hop Fest .It's listed in the GBG ,and that seemed fair enough.It serves it's market well but I found it a bit too hectic for my purposes.

A short walk from Crouch Hill overground station this large gastro style pub housed in the former Friern Manor Dairy Company has a commanding position on the corner of Stroud Green Road and Hanley Road in Crouch Hill. We actually entered through the dining room door in the original red brick part of the building that stretches up the road towards Crouch Hill station, which brings you into the large restaurant area. But this is such a large pub internally that the non-restaurant bar area section has several distinct areas with comfortable seating and provides several screens for the sport which was actually the underlying reason we were here.
The conversion is well done and it’s a bright and airy pub, primarily due to the massive skylight in the main internal section , then the massive floor to ceiling windows in the large street facing room to the front which also floods this section of the pub with light.
To give you the feel of the place if I say the wife was prepared to go out to watch the Aviva rugby Semi-finals, however was not prepared to go to our usual spit and sawdust Sky showing blokes Boozer, but demanded to go somewhere without yobs, that did good food and had comfortable civilised (her words) surroundings and atmosphere, there you have the Old Dairy.
This is a place for the young career types of Crouch End and surrounds to come and meet friends and socialise. And even at 3.00PM on a Saturday with both the Aviva Rugby and the Millwall Bradford playoff being shown on the screens you would be forgiven for thinking that the parent and baby club mentioned by Steve C below had been moved to a Saturday afternoon. Suffice to say no braying club supporters here, just those that want a bit of sport with their drinks and up market nosh. On the food front its well described by previous reviewers and although the home made Scotch Eggs and Pork pies behind the bar did look very good we went for the Curried Cod from the main menu which despite being a wallet hurting £16 by pub standards was very good and wouldn’t have disgraced a reputable restaurant.
On the beer front there was GK IPA , Twickenham Redhead and Old Dairy Red Top and Uber Brew ( no connection between pub and Brewery that I could see ) .
As we stayed for both Rugby Semi’s was able to try the three outside the IPA and they were all well-kept and the Uber Brew was a decent hoppy pale ale. And the missus was enamoured with her dinner, so with the exception of the Saracens result everything else met the good ladies wishes.

The Old Dairy is a large pub that i presume is housed in an old dairy.
Once inside this is a very large pub with lots of different areas,the bar is sited in the middle area,the floor is bare boarded and the seating is a mix of different types.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Sambrooks Wandle which went down well,the other beers were Sambrooks Lavender Hill,Hackney american Pale Ale and GK IPA.
There were lots of TVs showing cricket and decent background music was playing.
Not really my sort of pub.
