Shane's offers a dining experience with a conscience. Foraging ourselves in the local area we are enjoying bringing interesting combinations to your plate.
Thursday is always £10 steak night.
Wednesday is bring your own wine night.
With a menu focused towards British meats & game & fish, our food is seasonal, and sourced from single British producers with a mission to retain quality & freshness. The menu is constantly changing as supply and quality produce becomes available. We try to make everything ourselves - even the crackers for the cheese are our own, along with our bread. You can just pop in for a few cheeses, some home cured meats and a glass of wine or port. You are never rushed at Shane's and our staff who all live a stones throw away, are always ready to help with a smile. (Our menu includes notes for coeliacs and non dairy alike)

                                                                We booked the day before and travelled a fair distance to Shane's. But when we turned up at the allotted time we found the place booked for a private party and were turned away. Shane himself didn't really seem particularly bothered about our ruined evening. In fact, I'd say, he couldn't have cared less. We left hungry and upset. It didn't seem worth the fight...

A few things not on the menu - no campari for the negroni (even though there is an off license across the road), no lamb chops left at 730 and no desert wine - but what we did have in wood pigeon, duck,rabbit, venison and plaice were all excellent. The food was great, as was the service. A family dinner that was enjoyed by all

                                                                Shane's is a very good local restaurant which we've taken friends to on several occasions; it's also worth travelling to get to. The food is uniformly very good, often really excellent, and always very imaginative with ingredients, which often are from wild or foraged sources. They are also very good at accommodating dietary needs such as gluten or dairy free. The service is always friendly and attentive without being fussy. The wine list isn't great but pretty good for a restaurant at this level. It's not noisy, which is very nice for people who like to talk to each other and not usual enough. They've redecorated in a more muted style, I slightly miss the previous more eccentric look. I really recommend it, we've never been disappointed.

                                                                Took a chance on a booking at this neighbourhood bistro as I liked the menu. I wasn't disappointed. Great locally sourced ingredients used inventively. Wasn't sure that samphire and wild hare would work together but it made a great starter. Main course of cod with barley was hearty and comforting. Perfectly cooked too. And the lemon posset to finish was rich but zingy. Lovely wine list with a good selection of wines by the glass and carafe. Nice atmosphere too.

                                                                My wife and I visited Shane's on a Wednesday night, to an initially empty restaurant that soon filled up. We enjoyed some beautifully tasty starters, and good wine, as well as friendly and helpful staff. The mains were sadly let down by a very overcooked/dry pheasant on my wife's plate and some completely uncooked chips on mine. Since we were the only diners when we placed our order, this was a little disconcerting. Our server did offer to take the pheasant back, but we knew this would mean waiting for a new dish, so she kindly gave us a free liqueur/spirit each instead. Unfortunately the overall experience wasn't what we'd hoped for, but we may visit again in the future.

                                                                My husband and I were given a gift voucher by two friends and I cannot thank them enough for introducing us to Shane's on Chatsworth. The food was excellent and the service was really friendly. The above mentioned rhubarb cheesecake was to die for! I could have eaten it all over again - and that's not because the portion was measly but just because if was so delicious. The portions were, in fact, really decent and didn't lead to being too stuffed. Nice wine, lovely parsnip chips - not easy to eat in a polite way but very yummy. And the wine was excellent - from the Bekaa Valley. Overall, a really nice experience and one I would go back for. Thanks. It was a very happy birthday!

Highlights included the roast rhubarb and braised beef rib, whilst the atmosphere meant will deffo be returning. Nice to have a local restaurant with such obvious passion for food, wine and service.

The front of house guy looked to be on his own and was very busy but still did a great job, was super friendly (especially considering we were 20 minutes late) and knowledgeable on the menu and ethos of the place. The dining experience might be a bit 'cosy' for some but the menu is very interesting and the food was fantastic - the prices are very reasonable when you taste the quality of the dishes! Would highly recommend and I will definitely be going back.

                                                                We thought we'd try another one of our local Clapton restaurants and headed to Shane's. The restaurant is small but has a cosy look to it. As it was a Tues night it didn't get particularly busy so was a liitle chilly temperature wise at the start. We were also the first patrons of the evening. The food however was great. My husbands wood pigeon starter was so tasty and their warm fresh bread was moorish. We both had the beef Wellington for main which was cooked to pink perfection followed by a deconstructed apple crumble which was a great take on the traditional. Apparently it was Shane himself in the kitchen and he didn't disappoint. The evening was washed down with first a bottle valpolicella which was ok but I wouldn't rate it followed by the Lebanese Chateau Musar which was much better. The waiter who served us was friendly and attentative without being in your face all the time and is also a local so knows the area well. Overall a great dining experience and I'd recommend trying out Shane's if you're in the area.

Some of the simpler things like roast potatoes were delicious but overall it was bland. We will try again but perhaps the brunch menu rather than dinner.

It was good to find somewhere where staff were knowledgable and accommodating for someone with dairy and gluten intollerances. Although it was a shame that the dessert menu didn't have anything for me. The food was tasty and it is clear that a lot of thought goes into creating a diverse and interesting menu. We'll definitely be coming back!

                                                                I needed to impress my 17 year old niece and nephew with somewhere hip and cool - but wanted interesting food of a high standard which my 80 year old aunt and I would enjoy. Shane's delivered on this tall order. Great location; simple, low cost decor, but stylishly done; waitress was wonderfully welcoming; and the food was fab. Carpaccio of hare starter was superb. For main courses, the risk-averse twins stuck with steak and chips - and declared it delicious - but my pave of fallow deer was exceptional (with foraged blackberries) and my aunt's duck was also impressive. The accompanying mash and veg were not quite as hot as I would expect - but a minor quibble in a fun, welcoming, creative place. Highly recommended on multiple counts.

The menu was reasonably priced, sufficiently short that you could be sure your food was cooked to order, but also varied enough to give enough choice, even for the vegetarians. The food itself was well cooked and there were some good touches, but could have done with a bit more seasoning and flavour - that was the concensus of three of the four in our party. The lamb was the most successful dish of the mains. Having said that, we had an enjoyable evening. The restaurant is small and intimate and seemed to cater to the 'romantic dinner' market judging by some of the fellow diners. I would eat here again, but probably not choose the same dishes.
