A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The Springfield is a bit rough, various drug problems over the years. Ranelagh is ok, but if you want a better class of drinker, head for Muswell Hill or Crouch End. Wood Green/Bounds Green isn't great for pubs/restaurants.
Michelle - Do you have any evidence of the alleged drug problems in the Springfield, perhaps you could provide a link to an online news report to back up this assertion? I would be interested to see it.
I have been in the Springfield to watch sport on TV several times before - and to watch music, with friends ... I had no idea I was the wrong class of drinker and "a bit rough" ...
Donna I am sure you would be made very welcome at the Springfield to watch football.
Michelle: do have fun with the folks who live on the hill ... we plebs are doing just fine in Bowes Park and Bounds Green Thank You.
Go drinking in Wood Green, then come back and let me know how enjoyable it is.
Thanks all for your thoughts!
I recommend Ranelagh, it's more adequate and comfortable than Springfield. However, you should be careful with the drinking there, sometimes the people doing the drinking are a bit... rough around the edges. I agree with the previous advice - Crouch End is a good choice to aviod most possible problems. I don't want to sound like a puff, but, unfortunately, what Michelle Jones said is true.
