Tramshed Ratings and Reviews
We have been previously and loved it but this time was very different. The service was poor at best with staff leaning over our full plates to pour drinks and no one really seemed to know who was looking after who. Staff stood about having a chat completely oblivious to customers trying to get their attention. And then to top it all off my wife found a slug in her salad! We were not charged for our food but unfortunately have been left with a bad experience and will not be returning.
Food was good (steak, very interesting chicken scratchings) but arrived in double-quick time leaving us with half a bottle of wine to finish off before we were ready to leave. The raised area we were sat in seemed devoid of staff later on (we're talking about 9pm and there were quite a few team members chatting away near the bar) and the only person we could ask was not part of the waiting team although friendly nonetheless.
Love it here. For a big space the intimacy is maintained through ambient lighting and a surprisingly pleasant temperature (given the size you expect it to be more expensive). Wine is maybe slightly above average (£39 for a bottle of prosecco is too much!!). Go for the whole chicken - it's an experience!
The staff were polite and accommodating. The venue is relaxed and interesting with the cow and chicken art piece. Unfortunately the food was not as hot as it could have been on arrival at the table, the overall flavour was good though. Definitely recommend the salted caramel fondue with doughnuts and marshmallows - wow
Very good, attentive and friendly service. Good food, very good house wine. Didn’t have any Burata starters left, which was disappointing. But alternative choice of croquettes was also good. Fillet steak alternative was nice but not as lean as standard fillet.
Meal was reasonable value.
We went to Tramshed for a early birthday celebration, when making the reservation we had stated this. We were blown away by the staffs efforts to make us feel special - as soon as we walked in and said the table name, they said happy birthday etc.
The food was exceptional, and extremely well priced - would highly recommend the salted caramel fondue for dessert. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great, and the service was attentive without feeling like the experience was rushed.
The atmosphere at Tramshed was great. It's a fun place but not pretentious. The service was exceptional. Everyone was friendly, very attentive, and really took care of us.
I was excited to finally be able to go to Tramshed, as they now have a veggie-pesci menu, but the food really let the whole experience down. For non- and meat-eaters alike the food was poor and unimaginative. Sadly we even had to send a chicken back that was not fully cooked.
Price-wise it wasn't unreasonable (for London), but the price did not match with the quality of the food at all.-
I would really like to go back to Tramshed, but probably wouldn't want to eat there unless I was aware of a change in chef.
Great service and great atmosphere. A must go. Food wise, Yorkshire pudding was awesome and the chicken was too. I thought there could have been more salad with the Yorkshire P and medium sirloin could have been a bit more tender - ours was a little too course. Thank you for a good time!
First of all I went to the wrong 'Tramshed' as I put 'The Tramshed' into google maps and ended up past Bethnal Green! But when I called the girl on reception was an absolute star and helped push out the time of our booking.
Lovely food, bit pricey but delicious. Great ambiance and even though it was busy, you didn't feel it was too noisy or intrusive. We had to wait on some condiments and sauce which had been ordered but that was not a major issue.
Most of the staff are super friendly, especially the girl and guy on front desk, but some service staff could do with being a bit more customer oriented!
Overall a lovely evening, thank you all so much!
Nice atmosphere, great artwork and nice cocktails. For the prices the food could have been a bit better, but maybe it's better if you get steak - if you like curry, don't get the curry. My friend had a salad and she loved it though. Personally I'd spend £80+ on a meal and drinks for 2 elsewhere because I've been better places at that cost.
Food was OK, but to be honest I expected better. I had the chicken burger; asked for it with no mayo and it was like they put extra on it just because I'd asked! Disappointing though because the environment and the service were really good. The food was just a bit bland.
Second visit since first visit 4 years ago and disappointed this time. Very busy and great atmosphere but service, although friendly, was pushy and a little overbearing. Our waitress came to the table far too often to push drinks and even tried to take away an unfinished cocktail when attempting to get us to order more. We shared a starter, which was met with a questioning shrug, as was my choice to not order a side with my steak/chips like I was some sort of deviant. My chocolate mousse was good and had a degree of presentation but my colleagues ice cream was just that, 2 scoops of ice cream that could have come from Aldi, on a plate.....nothing other than that.....and it was practically thrown onto the table when it arrived. Not planning to return any time soon.
Disappointing first experience at The Tramshed. Food was ok but service let down the dining experience and my perception is the serving staff were struggling to cope with the number of diners on the evening. I have had better service and food at Hawksmoor, and FlatIron and I would visit those two before venturing back to The Tramshed.
