W Martyn †
Affectionately referred to as the "Fortnum & Mason of Muswell Hill" this family-run fine food business dates back over 100 years to 1887. The stunning Art Deco facade and interior have changed little over the years - an old coffee roaster rests proudly in the window underneath the iconic red lettering introducing the shop, while inside brass scales, solid oak shelving and row upon row of simply designed, quality goods hark back to 1930s London. It may well be off the beaten track but it really is worth making a trip to this part of north London just to breath in the scent of freshly roasted coffee and the warm, family atmosphere that pervades throughout. Tea and coffee is their speciality but really there's a bit of everything yummy here with Christmas hampers boasting an alluring range of goodies from pickles to puddings, condiments to cakes.
Go and get stuffed.
