Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!
Back in the days when the Shelton Hotel used to be a pub. It was in business from 1894 to the mid 1990s. Originally known as The Railway Hotel, it seems to have dropped the hotel part of the name in later years.

I saw that the Shelton was for sale recently on Rightmove for £7,500,000 but can't find it there anymore.
£7.5m! I guess with Jewsons opposite now zoned for housing in the recent(ish) site allocation plan, that neck of the woods may be ripe for development. I hope the council don’t use the same half-truths and deceptions they did on Hamden Road to get another tower block nodded through.
I saw one of the new Thameslink trains stop at Harringay this week and the back two carriages hung off the platform... other than that these new people had better be cycling to work.
It's still for sale if you've got the cash spare, John.
It was open as "The Railway" for quite a few years after 1984.
Thanks Hob. It looks like Whitbread submitted a planning application for a satellite aerial in 1991. The first Shelton Hotel application was made in 1999. So the changeover was made at some point between those two dates. The Shelton website says that the hotel was established in 1998. So, it looks like we'd be safe to say the Railway closed in the mid-nineties.
We used to drink in there. He had a bottle of poteen behind the counter for those that knew.
The old manager of the Salisbury had a marble table in his office with lines of coke. You would get a "phone call" and go behind the bar for a line. #allegedly
If I had the money I’d change it back to a really lovely pub, gastro restaurant and and rooms above. It is dead central for anyone wanting to stay in London with terrific transport links into (and out of) London.
Remarkable what a difference changing the windows does to the look of a place. The Shelton Hotel facade has little to recommend it.
Agree with Karen, would be lovely to see it restored as a contemporary pub.
