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!!

Love Camden Passage and had been willing to try this place for a long time as it looks so nice from the outside and has a good reputation.

Nice atmosphere and decoration but a bit disappointed with the service. The person serving us couldn't really be bothered and barely spoke to us. Also the food wasn't great... I had the poached egg muffin with chargrilled avocado with a not yet ripe...more

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

Prior to my recent visit I had not known about 'The Elk In The Woods' and was taken there for coffee. This Coffee shop/sandwich venue was neatly tucked away on a hidden road not too far from the Angel Station and the hustle and bustle of the main road yet provided us with peace and quietness. 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

Good brunch, not great. Above average for sure.

Had the eggs bene and was just very ordinary what you'd expect.

Also tried a side of the orange ribs - again good but not great.

This place gets packed.

Staff was nice.more

Coming to Camden passage is like finding a hidden gem in Angel. Lot's of cool shops and restaurants that line the little alleyway. I've been to this place for coffee in the afternoon and cocktails in the evening. In the summer I really enjoy their outdoor seating and when it's cooler the interior is very nice... it's like sitting inside a romantic wooden cabin. Their coffee is renowned and...more
