REST YOUR LAZYBONES

Another addition to Farringdon’s blooming restaurant landscape; Lazybones has graced us with it’s rather brash n’ trash presence (not a bad thing). Tucked away off Cowcross Street, find an excuse to pop in and be tempted by the easy eats and after-work relaxation inducing drinks.

GROWN UP PLAYGROUND

Lazybones offers a relaxed watering hole, just a stones’ throw from Farringdon’s bustling tube and train station.  If you need some down time and/or a quick and tasty bite, then rest your weary bones in this modern day (almost sports bar feel), post work escape; Wrap you lips around some on trend tasty trash foods, washed down with some well-deserved imported beers from Mexico, USA and Canada.

The menu is a big attraction, inspired by the current slow cooking culture, including Pulled Pork (best we’ve heard recently), hot dogs and a plethora of varied spiced wings along with stand up veggie options including; Falafel Wrap (£5.50), made from roasted butternut squash and chickpeas or a Three Bean Salad (£4.50), packed full of butter beans, chickpeas and kidney beans; all dispensed from one of the room’s features – a caravan/ trailer style kitchen, all adding to the fun, urban feel of the venue.

GRUBS UP!

TASTY TRAILER – TRASH FOOD

The design is something a little different for the area too; an easily approachable for all – version of something more underground you might get a little further East. The walls are busy with graphic graffiti, pop culture stylings and an electric range of props hanging about. We also heard about a nice feature after we left but didn’t see or know anything about this when we were there… Apparently at Lazybones ‘one’ can become a virtual DJs from the comfort of their booth or bar-stool, with a jukebox facility controlled from their phone.  The venue is linked to the Secret DJ app, which allows users to “check in” at the bar and choose their favourite tunes. Wish we’d known! We imagine that could be very fun or very annoying – either way, it’s interesting and interactive, which we rate.

WHAT TO PICK??

Lazybones also has a great courtyard space at the front of the bar, so when the sun decides to lift it’s ‘lazy’ head, you’ll have somewhere to soak up its rays from.

Ultimately this is a casual, fun and trashy eat option for after work (or lunch time).  We loved the food, thought there could have been a few more select cocktails (think how well Pitt Cue combines their cocktail list with the food on offer – Pickle Back anyone?) but the warm and friendly staff more than made up the lack of a few more choice cocktails.

We ate:  All in the name of research and dedication to the consumer cause, we munched through quite a few dishes on the menu – great grub.

OH YES WE DID......

AMAZING PULLED PORK BUN

AMAZING PULLED PORK BUN….AND VEGGIE WRAP…..AND CHILLI DOG…..

We were slipping into a blissful food coma at this point.  We thought all the food was delicious, super packed with flavour. The Pulled Pork was supreme and one of us doesn’t even like pork dishes at all….normally.

Entertaining:

Great spot for a lunch meeting, post work pit stop and pre party carb loading.
