Not the best experience I’ve had there.

All food was a little cold.

It wasn’t busy.

Went for a Sunday lunch. Service was very slow, waiters seemed very short staffed for the area they were having to cover. Food looked lovely, was presented very well, except my plate must of been sitting on the pass too long, the beef was barely warm. The accompanying veg side dish of Kale was stone cold. Tried to attract the waiters attention to ask for my dish to be warmed up & also ask for some mustard, but after 10 minutes of trying we gave up. Sadly we didn’t have time to wait another 1/2hr to put things right. So just ate the bits of beef that were warm, avoided the kale and ate the potatoes & cauliflower cheese.

We chose the tramshed for a double celebration, and were delighted! The food, service, stylish decor and atmosphere at The Tramshed were second to none. The staff went out of their way to make our visit memorable and comfortable. The ribeye steak was cooked perfectly and well partnered with an excellent valpolicella. We will definitely be going back here! Thank you!!

I went to the Tramshed for Valentines Day with my partner, obviously it was very busy so the only table/seats we could book were at the bar, but because of this we were attended to really well, the staff were lovely and friendly and provided a great service for food and drinks. The price of the food was very reasonable - loved the Beefballs and Salt and Vinegar Onion Rings! The atmosphere was nice too, we wanted to have a look in the gallery downstairs but this closed at 6pm, however the art pieces inside the restaurant provided for a nice setting for a wonderful meal and evening!

We live in Portugal but visit London regularly and Tramshed is one of our regulars. It is not as popular as it used to be say 5 years ago but still nicely busy and the food standards are as high as ever. On our penultimate visit last November we were a little disappointed as the service was not up to scratch even though it was only half full. But last Thursday, Feb 13th it was great. The Yorkshire puddings with chicken liver paté are very special, as is the whole roast chicken. Steaks are good but not as special as the chicken. We keep on going back!

Scenografica ambientazione dentro una vecchia rimessa dei tram, resaancor più scenografica dall'opera di Damien Hirst potsa su un piedistallo in mezzo alla sala. Decisamente buona la carne così come i dolci. La rib eye era veramente notevole. Buone anche le birre Hix. Unicco appunto, per i miei gusti, troppo rumoroso.

It was absurdly over priced for what it was. The steak was decent but you'd expect that for £24. Each side was £4 and the portions were tiny, we had about 4 bits of cabbage in one. £12 for a small gin and tonic was also ridiculous. I don't mind paying that much if the food is worth it but this was just steak and chips. The restaurant has too many tables packed into it so you are practically touching your neighbours. Really disappointing, we won't be back.

Dined here 2yrs ago and had a great experience. Not so this time, food was good, but no burgers at 7pm on a Monday which 3 of our group wanted, or not having the wine we ordered was disappointing. Also the booth we were initially sat at had virtually no padding left in the seats(not at all comfortable), so we asked to be moved, which then confused the waiting staff no end, a lack of communication I'm thinking. All in all a bit dissatisfied, despite the best efforts of the staff. Would try again, as live locally but would be reluctant to recommend I'm afraid.

What a terrible meal. We have previously dined at HIX in Soho and had an incredible meal, as such we expected this to be no different, especially when it comes to the steak. The reality was that they could not have been more polar opposite. Before i start i must say the Korean Chicken starter was incredible. However, my steak was significantly over cooked. They were ok about taking it back to the kitchen, however when they returned with another steak that was blue. And they had taken all of my sides. I decided to keep that steak as my friend was already halfway through her dinner. I had to request to get my sides back while i was sat with a slab of raw meat which also had no flavour to it. 10 minutes later they came out with fresh sides. Great. I'm almost through my dinner and no one bothered to tell me that was what was happening - maybe bring the steak and the sides out at the same time...? Just a terrible meal all round. Such a disappointment after an incredible meal in soho. 100% would not recommend.

Had a great time at Tramshed - good food and atmosphere and they even surprised us with a personalised birthday cake for my partner. The only problem was at the end when we went to pay, we had a Time Out voucher which our server tried to tell us we couldn't use even though I had stated it in our reservation. Luckily it was all sorted by the manager but he was quite rude initially which ruined the meal slightly.

Has Hugh expectations for dining here. The waiter was at best disinterested veering towards rude.

The food was ok to be honest nothing special. No better than a far less expensive restaurant.

The surroundings are probably this places saving grace.

Food was lovely, although it was served on really small plates which made it difficult to eat.
The service was also very slow, we had to try and catch someone’s attention every time otherwise we would have been sat there for hours. They need more staff.

Really do not recommend Tramshed at all. It's glorified Roast Chicken and chips. The chicken is dry & tasteless. Stingy on the stuffing as well. You can get a better tasting roast chicken at Asda rotisserie! We also tried the chicken burger which again was nothing to write home about. I had such high expectations of this place given the press it's had before and just was so underwhelmed and dissatisfied it was unreal.

Distinctly average food that was quite overpriced.

Grilled chicken escalope that tasted no better than a local Wetherspoons.

Chips the saving grace - very nice.

Service OK.

Barn atmosphere that some people must like - wasn’t quite for me and felt like a bit of a place that is off the M25 or service station.

4/10 wouldn’t go back - shame as was really looking forward

I would definitely go again and try other things but some of the dishes lack a bit of finesse, and they have so many covers, it’s hard for the staff to keep up. 3 stars would feel unfair, 4 stars feels too generous when you compare it to places like berners tavern or the Wolesley.

But glad we went - the porterhouse was great

Tramshed is an amazing place for all corporate/group or individual dinners, with great atmosphere and excellent service. We had 2 big tables due to a last minute change however they were allocated right next to each other thanks to a helpful staff members. You could see passion, knowledge and team work.
Regarding food, WOW... delicious, delicious and once again delicious. Everyone will find something for themselves. All dishes were very well presented and cooked appropriate to our needs.
I would like to thank Tramshed staff for their flexibility, amazing service and excellent food!!

Third time I’ve visited in last month
Each time there has been an issue with service. Either something missing, courses don’t come out at same time, very slow service.
Chicken is there signature but has been dry and unremarkable
Won’t be returning

Good food and nice staff but don’t get the bottomless because if you don’t ask for refills then you will wind up with very little for your money and at £50 a couple that’s a lot of money to waste.

Tramshed is good if you want to have a celebratory meal in an amazing venue. The steak was really great, as were the sides. However it feels like a victim of it's own success and on a busy Saturday night:
- The starters were all re-heated (the yorkshire puddings were rubbery, freezing cold and stale), and the mac and cheese had been through the oven a few times
- the service was shockingly poor, given the number of staff on the floor and the premium price tag. Our waitress forgot to order from half the table, then forgot loads of the orders! Then seemed very annoyed at us for asking for our food.

All in all, we had a fun night out, but come here with a good (low maintenance) group because the staff aren't going to make your night!

It’s been a few years since I’ve eaten here and I remember it being better.
Our steaks were very fatty. The “chicken dripping chips” were basically like McDonald’s chips, thought they would be big chunky ones! Disappointed.
The underfloor heating was ridiculous. I asked the waiter if something could be done and he just laughed. It was so so hot!

Visited Tramshed after a year or so and I have to say, I was slightly disappointed. We were told as we were seated that we only had the table for 2.5 hours (which is plenty of time for two people). This immediately stresses me out. However, what makes it worse is that it took us a long time to get served!

The chicken scratching and Yorkshire pudding were fabulous. Was disappointed in the Korean fried chicken. I used to love Tramshed's whole roast chicken but i found that the flavour and look of it was slightly different to how i remembered it to be - different recipe perhaps?

I didn't hate my experience, i just didn't love it either.
