Love Shack is an incredible patch of Vegan paradise situated in the heart of East London between Cambridge Heath & Bethnal Green

Comprising three large and entirely unique railway arches and a beautiful decked garden complete with hammocks and it's very own Love hut, we are a restaurant, cocktail bar and events space with an emphasis on creating the kind of good vibes that will make you feel instantly welcome.

Our menu is comprised predominantly of small sharing plates, (mostly so we can show off how good a plethora of vegan food can be) along side some incredible mains and a host of craft beers and outstanding cocktails

Come for an hour and you'll likely stay all day

We often host comedy nights, gigs, open mic sessions and pretty wild parties

    Last day in London celebrating my birthday. Popped in at lunchtime, found a shady spot outside and stayed until late afternoon. My man had a Glory bowl full of delicious goodness. I had the Tempeh Caesar salad, was the best I’d had in years. We drank various drinks including beer, wine & then whisky shots which were incredible! Staff are adorable. The whole quirky place a tribute to recycling. Very refreshing. Loved it!

    A great restaurant with flavoursome vegan food and a chilled vibe. The staff are friendly and eager to please. Hot cocktails served as well as cold and the amaretto matcha and oat milk hot cocktail is divine. A great find will be returning.

    Fantastic laid back eating and drinking venue. Very trendy, slightly hippy- fantastic servers. Super friendly place. The cocktail menu is extensive and they all look great. I would highly recommend their signature margaritas. The food is all vegan. The quesadilla starter was fantastic. Mains- the chick’n burger was good too. Will definitely be back over and over again. Thanks

    Great vibe and staff. We ordered a new starter item on the menu which wasn't so good, but beyond meat burger was delicious. Can't have it all. Otherwise would def recommend and return.

    We booked the table for 21.45 online. When arriving there 2min before time we were asked to order immediately as the kitchen was closing in 1min. Then we were informed that could not consume alcohol after 22 outdoor. At the end of the meal when asking dessert we were told that the kitchen has closed, so no dessert. The food was OK, but it was not the kind of service that I was expecting.

    I had booked to sit outside for the fresh air and sunshine. However, there was a tarpaulin covering over us, and smokers all around, which was mighty distracting. The meal was delicious and the service people exuded individuality, warmth and a calm flexibility. I enjoyed the beetroot latte; expensive though. My friend enjoyed his Thai dish. However, we had specifically ordered one without chilli and the service person assured us it would be mild as he would let the chef know. The dish was hot with large pieces of red chilli still present. He was too polite to ask for another. I had the flatbread with hummus, which was wonderful. Great weighty wooden tables; some smaller ones, shakey. Menu had a paper sheet cover, listing higher prices for dinners which I found strange and slightly sour. We moved inside after the outdoor seating grew busier. We left as the indoor area grew busier. Perhaps the voices bounced off the wooden and metal surfaces increasing the volume. Additionally, the sound of club music sounds from next door, seemed out of place. A friendly dog, and admiring the eclectic decor outside and inside, made my evening. Thank you Love Shack. I hope to return for event nights.

    I am not vegan, my wife is so took her to live shack for dinner on a Sunday. The food was full of flavour, portions were a decent size and came in a timely manner. The place is quirky and has a nice vibe. To cap it off the staff made us feel really welcome. Heading back for sure

    Came yesterday for the first time and loved it! Really cool relaxed vibe, reminding me of beach bars when backpacking, nice staff, amazing cocktails (recommend pineapple and jalapeños margarita) and the food itself. We tried few things and everything was delicious, especially oyster mushrooms wings and flatbreads. Highly recommend the place!

    Enjoyed a lovely birthday lunch at Love Shack on a 1st visit. It's a really cool little set up. Feels very relaxed despite being close to a busy road. Really good service and amazing Vegan food. We both had one of the two burger options. Both dishes were really good and served with fab chunky fries. We had one shake too which tasted amazing and a nice Prosecco Will definitely be back here regularly. Appreciated the free birthday shot. Overall a really great experience.
