Best deals in town: Steak Night, Lazy Hunter

In which we roadtest the local offers kindest to your wallet

So what’s the deal? Two 10oz rib-eyes and chips. Oh, and a bottle of house red, a perfectly quaffable Spanish merlot. A snip at £35 all in.

What’s the usual price? £49.50 (if you order a portion of chips each).

Talk us through things. It’s chargrilled to sedulous perfection, with thick black stripes across the caramelised crust. And better still, wonderfully pillowy to the touch: even before slicing we knew it would be exactly the right shade of crimson.

Smeared with the herb butter the meat proved as meltingly soft as you can get at this price (if it was over £20, we concluded, you wouldn’t complain). Sweet potato fries and hand-sliced chips were both on-point, while sauces include harissa mayo, mustard and herby mayo. Roasted tomatoes and rocket come on the side, too.

Any extras? Nope. If you want sides, they start at an additional £1.25 for grilled sourdough, up to £3.50-3.95 for salad, green beans or sweet potato fries.

Busy? Not especially. But neither was anywhere else in Kentish Town on a wet Thursday in mid-April. Use it or lose it, people. That Soho hotspot doesn’t need your dinner booking! Especially as the Scandi-style interior here is as chic, too.

When is it? Steak night, every Thursday, 5.30-9.30pm.

What other nights are worth investigating? We have our eye on Tuesdays: two burgers for just £12.

Our rating: 9/10.
