SquareMeal Review of Tramshed

silver award


Curious passers-by peer through the window to catch a glimpse of Damien Hirst’s ‘Cock and Bull’ installation housed in chef/art collector Mark Hix’s Tramshed. They should brave it and go on in; allcomers are welcome at this cavernous industrial space where Hix serves seriously sourced chicken and steak – crowd-pleasers both – to solo diners at the bar, rowdy parties in capacious booths, and everyone in between. In less capable hands, Tramshed would be a fail-safe ‘yawn’ of a concept, but Hix’s menu goes beyond salt-aged Glenarm beef and roast barn-reared chooks into lively international territory. To wit, whipped chicken livers served with an enormous duck-fat Yorkshire pud (as a British alternative to brioche), American-style bone-in rib and slaw, a fearsomely hot curry, and a no-airs-and-graces raspberry cheesecake – not that anything will lure the lunchtime crowd away from their steak sandwiches. Wines and cocktails are credible rather than posey.

Private Dining


This listed Shoreditch building, with its intriguing heritage, is best experienced from the mezzanine floor, a semi-private space which can seat 36. This space also allows a good view of Damien Hirst’s much talked-about Cock ‘n’ Bull installation. Otherwise, you’ve got a choice of the 12-seater private dining room with its own demonstration kitchen, or for a standing reception the 100-capacity, industrial chic Hix Art, featuring rotating exhibitions and long trestle tables. Chicken and beef are the kitchen staples.

The atmosphere and the deco of the Tramshed is great. It's got a nice lively atmosphere. We ordered the buttermilk chicken and cock n' bull croquettes for starters. The chicken wasn't anything special and lacked flavour. The croquettes were delicious and not too cheesy. The steak wasn't what I was expecting at all. I pointed to the steak that I wanted which someone else had ordered. I checked with the waitress to ask if that was the juiciest steak they had in terms of thickness, yet she recommended me something completely different and not what I wanted at all! I was very disappointed, and the steak was average. Nothing special. The cocktails were incredible, with amazing flavours. They ended up being the most expensive thing on our bill, and the best. There are better meat restaurants in London. Shame.
