32 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3LX
Situated in a former East End tram-generator building (hence the name) Tramshed, restaurateur Mark Hix’s oversized and buzzing restaurant oozes with life and offers a great fun atmosphere for all.
Its most famous claim to fame is the amazing installation by Damien Hirst, the infamous giant life-size formaldehyde cow hanging in a glass box, dangling over diners heads from the centre of the restaurant roof.
The rest of the space offers clean and simple wooden tables dotted about where you can devour your deliciously flavoured whole roasted chicken (presented on a giant spike with its feet still attached) and share it with your closest, nearest and dearests.
The menu is simple, chicken or steak (and some vegetarians options) but this is definitely not a place for those who are precious about “animal fats and waistlines” It’s unashamedly meat, meat and more meat.
This place is lively, so don’t expect a quiet cosy corner, its busy, its loud and its fast, therefore, great for groups, great for fun seekers and great if you like meat!
