A pub that appeared in a Harry Potter film will reopen after a £1.35 million refurbishment - more than four years after it last served a pint.

The Fox pub in Green Lanes has been closed since September 2018, but it has finally opened its doors today (February 3) under new ownership.

With a new makeover, the historic pub has been completely renovated with a larger space while retaining its high ceilings and wooden floors.

Edwardian-style tiling has been incorporated to the new look with leather-covered banquette seating.

A new kitchen has been fitted and the pub is kitted out with screens to show BT and Sky Sports.

Operator Austin Whelan says that there will be 20 new jobs with the opening and explained that there are plans for activities such as quizzes and live music.

He said: “There aren’t many pubs in Palmers Green compared to other parts of London, and The Fox is a very prominent and well known pub, so there’s been lots of interest in the plans from residents. People have been desperate for The Fox to reopen as a really good local.

“We’ve gone all out to make it a pub that Palmers Green can be proud of. It’s exciting to be reopening the doors and showing residents their new-look local.”

Whilst there has been an inn called The Fox on the site for more than 300 years, the current pub was built in 1904.

Its claims to fame include appearing in the film Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban and becoming the first Asset of Community Value in Enfield in 2015.
