Chilled-out canteen style restaurant serving great value home-cooking, craft beer and cocktails.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Bang in the centre of the drinking strip that is Bath Street, Lucky 7 offers laid-back dining. In high-backed booths beneath the artfully peeling wallpaper, bargain hunters can get lunch and a soft drink with just a five pound note. As evening rolls round, the melodic house music shifts to disco and club-goers enjoy cocktails and Camden Hells craft beer before heading next door to sister venue Flat 0/1. The menu tagline states ‘food yer mammy made', and features plenty of home cooking favourites such as fish and chips, steak pie and macaroni cheese – but mammy also has creative flair, with peppered strawberries and burnt lime mayo. From their selection of vegetarian dishes the hearty Moroccan sweet potato and chickpea stew is subtly spiced, while the fried chicken special boasts a rustic crispy coating. With such good value mains it would be daft not to order the cheesecake of the day, a New York-style treat oozing raspberry sauce.
