The Elk In The Woods


We are a small independent restaurant nestled in the middle of Camden Passage, a quaint pedestrian passage that harks back to a London gone by. We benefit from the quiet of the passage but are bang up to date with an urban cabin feel where industrial meets rustic; cosy and stylish. Serving locally sourced, freshly cooked food, Great British classics with twists and European tastes with an emphasis on the Scandinavian and we like our game. We are very proud of our food and our dedicated little team that experiment to get interesting and fun flavours! We serve Monmouth coffee, Curious and Furepure craft beers brewed in Kent and London on draft plus a selection of Brewery bottled beers in the fridge and many more including Wyld wood ciders. We have a boutique selection of craft cocktails and quality wines and we are always introducing new grapes like the bonarda which works very well with our menu. You can eat or drink anything on our menu at any time of the day, bliss!!

I read a few of the other reviews on Yelp and hesitated to come, mostly as it's a fine line between hip and hipster and some reviews had mentioned rally patchy service but I couldn't disagree more.

It's got quirky but very well executed decor - strong graphic print wall paper contrasts with raw wood sections and a wall full of antlers

The food was superb, way above what I expected. We went...more

Great little place in Angel.We went there for an early dinner last year. I would recommend reserving a table. The food was good, I tried the home smoked duck, which was delicious!

The food was good, I would definitely go back.

However, the service was quite slow. But we did plan on staying for a while so this wasnt a problem.more

Nicely tucked away hidden gem found in the heart of Angel Islington.

The ambience of the coffee shop...more

I'm a massive fan - I've had brunch here a couple of times now.

I love the look and feel of this restaurant on a weekend morning/lunch time. It's cool, looks great, relaxed and fun all combined in one.

It's always busy at weekends, but the brunch is brilliant, so it's worth booking in advance or popping in to put your name dins and mooching around the vintage market and shops whilst waiting...more
