We booked the table and received a call before to confirm, all very easy and efficiant. We had a business lunch and it was a good atmosphere, very welcome greeting. Food was really good and a good selection of beers and wine. Would definatley go back, great location and lots of bars around to go before or after.

If you want terrible service, wrong food being delivered without apology, loud thumping house music so you cannot speak to each other and food which is akin to Kentucky fried chicken on a plate at very high prices then this is the place for you. On second thoughts the food at Macdonalds and Kentucky is better....

Third visit, but possibly the last. Music far too loud, food very hit and miss and a completely amateurish waiter who, quite frankly, did not have a clue (but was at least friendly). It's a shame, as the previous two visits had been much better. Well give it one more go.

Buzzy atmosphere and good service. However, my partner was disappointed with the Chicken Curry (chicken was tough/chewy) and I had apple pie to finish which I had to get re-heated since it was barely lukewarm. Overall, we enjoyed the experience but won't be rushing back.

great place, true to the spirit of Shoreditch. bad acoustics especially on a busy Sat night because of the tiled walls and loud music . otherwise honest food well cooked and served as if you are at your own dining table. best vodka cocktails i have had in a while .

When booking you are told that your booking is only for 2 hours however the starters took long to come out and ordering the desserts again took really long which ended up us having the last bite of our desserts and the waiter telling us that we need to leave the table. Overall I felt you could get better steak for the same price at places where they let you enjoy your time in the restaurant

A neat idea executed properly.
Set in a lovely area near Shoreditch, Tramshed offers good food and a lovely interior. If you're a fan of chicken or beef it's a must.

A little disappointed with my visit to Tramshed, I have been previously and the food was decent but this time it was not as good. The meal arrived within 3 or 4 minutes after we placed orders our orders. I'm all for fast service but this was faster then a McDonald's. As a result the chicken was overall pretty dry and more warm then pipping hot. The stuffing was very also very dry. The meal felt like it had been sitting there for a good while, waiting to be served. I would have been happier to have waited 30 mins for a fresher meal. Because of this experience, it has put me off going again because it feels like a gamble on whether our next trip will be a good one or a bad one.

Food was lovely. However the waitress wasn't quite on par. She had forgotten to order all the starters thus they came at different times, she also forgot the little birthday cake when it came to desert. Wasn't very impressed with the service... especially since it was for a birthday.

Great restaurant in a fashionable part of town. Good food with options to share for a group and great service. Interesting artwork and ambient setting.

A few more chips wouldn't go a miss, but overall very good value c £50 a head for 2courses with wine

Having requested a birthday cake for a member of our group I was pleased that they made a fuss of the individual when we arrived and wished him "Happy Birthday". I checked with the reception desk half way through the meal that a cake would arrive and she checked and confirmed that this was happening, By the end of the meal nothing had appeared and so the bill was paid and I complained to the reception desk. I asked for the manager to contact me to be told there were several. No one has called in the week and a half since.

The service was also very slow during the evening. Altogether a very disappointing venue.

Friendly service, fantastic food and great venue. Definitely worth a visit with friends, family or business colleagues.

Be aware of limited time allowed at the table, 2 hours for example and be prepared to be sitting close to other diners on the main floor as tables and seats are quite close together in places.

Cock up with our order by the waiter led to no starters arriving and a delayed main course. This was handled very well by the restaurant manager to the extent that it minimised the problem. I would have no hesitation in visiting again.

Thank you to all the staff that made my mother's 50th birthday a great event. I couldn't have asked for sweeter, caring help from them. The little details you've taken care of, like knowing her name at reception or bringing her a piece of chocolate cake was lovely.

Disappointing visit to Tramshed, poor service... Dishes were forgotten from our order, the food came out way too quickly and quality of food felt basic and didn't warrent the price tag. If you want chicken go to Nandos, if you want good steak go to Flat Iron.. Both deliver better quality and at a cheaper price.

We had a fantastic night out with friends for our Wedding Anniversary with a couple of close friends. What an amazing place, Toby was such a cool and attentive guy who happily joined in our conversation when we didn't stop talking to him!
Food is delicious, especially the pork crackling, yorkshire pudding, bang bang chicken and the beet with goats cheese, with the most delicious chicken liver accompaniment, thank you.
We will be back very soon! Interesting Art as always and so glad we asked if we could go and have a look after closing time!
