Hi, have a question please hoping someone can provide some suggestions pls?
My friend, her wife and two young kids are coming over from France next week and staying on fortis green road? I'm planning on coming down from Northampton on thurs to meet up with them and catch up. But between us we have 5 kids (boys) 4mo, 6mo, 2x 2.5yro and 4.5yo.
I don't want them to have to travel too far to meet me but similarly I need to be able to get there by car if poss (as I have 3 of the 5 kids and no hubby with me on the day!!)
Any suggestions? Somewhere outdoors near a park would be nice! Or a restaurant that caters for kids and buggies?
Thanks very much in advance xxx

All good suggestions already.

There's also crocodile cafe next to Marks and Spencers in Muswell Hill. Has a covered outdoor area, with a Wendy house and a few toys to play with. You can park in the m&s car park.

Highgate Woods has a cafe with a big garden if the weather's good. We often take a picnic there and eat on the field between the cafe and the playground. You could park at the cinema car park in muswell hill, pick up some bits from Planet Organic and it's a five minute walk from there.

Hilly kitchen has private space,on 102 bus route from FG road

zebra cafe has outside space is a ceramics place but does cafe too

Croc cafe is OKish I wouldn't take five kids there though. Gets busy,bit cramped but as already said good central location. However, I don't rate it, food not so good, service can be slow

Thanks ladies for all your suggestions, really appreciate you taking the time to respond. We'd kind of decided on little dinosaurs in ally park, but my youngest has just come down with chicken pox sad weeks after the other two had it, so now not sure we're going anywhere sigh x
