Meaty K-Town restaurant trussed up like a hunting lodge.
If you’re thinking of Elmer Fudd, think again. This Lazy Hunter is a Kentish Town restaurant where the aim is to bring ‘a touch of nature to urban London’. That translates into a meaty menu that includes venison and a whole lotta pig. It also means they’ve thrown the garden shed at the decor, with pitchforks and a shotgun attached to the wall. The wood-and-tartan-clad room is cosy like a hunting lodge, with appetising barbecue smells and a sizeable decked garden at the rear.
The largely carnivorous menu is split into sections of ‘lazy things’ (burgers), ‘easy things’ (nibbles and boards) and ‘big things’ (proper plates). Of the former, the Dark Forest Hog’s Burger came highly recommended by the staff. Though needlessly served in a black brioche bun, it was a decent enough stack of roast pork, bacon and chestnuts (even if the pig was on the dry side). The Lazy Burger – a simple minced beef patty with tangy pickle – was more accomplished. Sweet potato fries were tip-top, but otherwise, flesh seems to be where it’s at, with a mixed side salad vastly over-seasoned on my visit.
In any case, if you’re after a decent meaty local, this is a perfectly fine spot. Keep things lazy, as nature intended.
