Located in the district of Shoreditch, Tramshed is a meat restaurant featuring beef and chicken! Renowned for the quality of its meat, Tramshed is a surprising restaurant both for the quirky and original presentation of certain dishes and for its interior decoration!

Presentation of the Tramshed restaurant

Opened in 2012, Tramshed is an upscale meat restaurant, selected and cooked by English chef Mark Hix. The latter is a figure of the British gastronomic scene, at the head of several restaurants, winner of several culinary competitions and author of numerous cookbooks.

In this restaurant, the chef gives pride of place to beef and chicken from producers in the country that he selects for the quality of their meat and the method of breeding. 



Mark Hix opened his restaurant in a former industrial building that was used to renovate trams. An unusual setting whose industrial architecture has been preserved with beautiful volumes, metal beams and bricks. 
But the most striking is the work of the British artist Damien Hirst exhibited in the heart of the room: a calf, surmounted by a rooster preserved in formalin.


Que mange t-on au restaurant Tramshed?


A brief, simple and effective menu: steak and roast chicken, plus a few starters! The beef is matured 28 days in a cold room with Himalayan salt and comes from the Shorthorn, Hereford and Aberdeen Angus breeds. 
If there are 5 of you, don't hesitate to take the 1,4 kg piece of beef!



The chickens come from Swainson House Farm, one of the best farms in the country and are served whole with vertical training !!

Finally, the wine list offers a very nice choice of good quality European wines, and of course, several local beers.
