Lazy Chef Bar & Kitchen



Chips on naan bread, cheese and hot beans with some red sauce


inside the Lazy Chef. Not long now


Pretty damn swish


Looks really nice. Any idea what food it’ll serve?


Has this opened? We were planning a late breakfast there on Friday 9th and it was not open. The opening on February 5th sign is gone too.


Menus for The Lazy Chef. Looking forward to trying these. When I went in the folks working there were very nice. Just popped in to take these snaps and they were happy for me to have a look round


Ooo hope ‘London Toast’ becomes a thing. Nice to have some shish in the area too.


So the big question is when do they open or did I miss that?


They’re Open!


No the cheapest but pretty faultless breakfast in my opinion. Something between C&C and BB. Although my heart will always be with BB.


Popped into the new Lazy Chef bar & kitchen on Saturday and had great meal. It was like being on holiday with beautiful Greek food and cocktails that should have been served by the side of a pool. It’s just opened and it’s right next to train station I’d highly recommend popping in. Will definitely be going back next weekend to try the breakfast food.


Agreed, my daughter and I had a late breakfast there Saturday, lovely food, ambience and staff.


We have been for our first meal since it opened and I agree that it has a nice ambience. The service is very attentive and genuine and the food is fresh with a good selection and reasonably priced and overall a great addition to FH.


Nipped in here to thaw with a coffee this morning, and was impressed with the menu, the light, spacious feel and the attentive service.

Also, the coffee is nicely made and presented:

Forest Hill ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ (Home Accessories Extra) to become Costa?

My wife and I had lunch in the Lazy Chef for the first time today, as Chris said, attentive and friendly service, like what they have done with the place and food was very good. A great addition.


My first visit. Good coffee with a second offered on the house. Ordered the full English.

I failed.


ETA staff were really lovely.


Decent looking plate here, how were the bangers?


I am mystified by the opening hours at the Lazy Chef. We really enjoyed our two visits there. But it seems to open at strange times. It’s 7:30pm on a Tuesday and the place has been shut for the last hour. Yet maybe it is about to open as the shutters just half-opened. More often than not it seems to be closed when I pass by these days though. Can anyone shed any light?


Yeah we wanted to try this place one evening as early reviews were so favourable, but with hours like this (which must be based on licensing?) it’s impossible. I could vaguely understand no evening trade on some weekdays but I can’t think of any decent reason why a restaurant would close so early. Even Canvas and Cream opens til seven at weekends.


Perhaps that’s why it’s the ‘lazy’ chef?
