THE STORY OF The Starting Gate

Built in 1875, The Starting Gate is a Grade-II-listed public house just a stone's throw from the rather impressive Alexandra Palace. Originally the starting point of the historic Alexandra Park Racecourse, our pub proudly offers our guests an eclectic blend of Victorian architecture and contemporary style – and a nice little rest from the hustle and bustle of the area. Enjoy a moment of calm with a choice from our superb range of drinks, or maybe recharge with a bite to eat from our classic pub menu. The Starting Gate gives you a glimpse of the London of old... so whether you're visiting the Palace to enjoy some of the best views of the city, or a dog walk in one of the nearby parks, why not pop in and sample our friendly hospitality?
