With its clean, contemporary look, Lazy Lounge is a light, bright affair, but the key to its popularity is serious wine done with good humour. If hunger pangs need satisfying, however, look to the evening menu of small sharing plates & get stuck into a trio of homemade mini burgers with assorted toppings, smoked haddock & bacon fishcakes or parsnip, swede & carrot fritters with red pepper salsa. Salads & sarnies do duty at lunchtime. The cosmopolitan wine list is an ideal partner for the food, with many by-the-glass selections for those wanting to explore. Draught real ales & lagers are alternatives.
Clean, neatly presented and simple to follow, the Lazy Lounge wine list scores highly for navigability. Felton Road Pinot for £7 a glass tempts, and the ‘pre-order’ section – allowing punters to order more expensive bottles in advance – is a clever idea.
