Busy night at Tramshed but able to wait in the holding area with a glass. Service excellent as usual and the rib on the bone impressive. Also impressive were the garlic mushrooms. No puds for dessert for us this time but the yorkshire pud with chicken liver starter remains stand out.

Great for chicken or steak!

Service was poor - asked for different things (Sauces, drinks, menus) throughout but had to ask 2 or 3 people before actually getting what was wanted.

Nice atmosphere. Clean restaurant.
Not too expensive.

Good to visit once, nothing special enough to revisit.

Sauvignon blanc by the glass was not nice.

Good food but it’s the art and building that really make this a restaurant to visit.

First impressions were a nice setting with a unique decor. Was greeted at the door and sat at our table. It took a bit of time to be served drinks but starters were quick to come out.

Mains came after a short wait and I was a bit disappointed at the size of the buttermilk chicken burger I had ordered. For the price paid, I feel the chicken could have been a bit bigger. The portion of chips were generous and truly a delight.

My companion ordered a steak and noted how difficult it was to cut with the current knife. Waitress went away and came back with the same style knife (what happened to serrated edges?).

Didn't have time for dessert.

Overall, the food was nice (could have been a bit more for what you pay for). Service could be slightly improved with a bit more chatter and upbeat manner.

I booked our reservation for 9 people for my brother in laws birthday and can I just say everything was great. But, the services was even more fantastic. We were served by Arabella who made the night even more special. Tramshed catered to both meat eaters and vegetarians and we were thoroughly satisfied with both.

The food was excellent. It has exceeded my expectations. Instead, the service left much to be desired. We were waiting for more than 15 minutes to attend, while the waitresses walked among the tables, placing cutlery on empty tables.

We truly enjoyed our experience t the Tramshed.
The food was on point, the chicken was a bit dry
The Ambiance captures you... enjoy the special quality & Flow
As well as the art. The service was not as attentive as the the last time we visited

High quality meat and lively ambience. Friendly staff and original extravagant decoration.
Medium-high prices.
One comment though: round tables are not comfortable for those who get stuck between the table and the wall.

Food was amazing but service was very poor. Staff have not been trained properly (apart from FOH who were great). Waitress had no initiative - gave a fork for sorbet and said ‘we have no spoons left’ and just had no awareness re topping up drinks or getting orders.

Its one of those places that has a "reputation" but when you get there it is beyond soulless, no atmosphere , overall just blah. The food is fine, it doesn't stand out for being exceptional in any way, the service (when they serve is friendly and fun but not attentive). The menu sounds exciting but thats where it ends, the korean chicken was more korean and less chicken -could have been tofu and wouldn't have made a difference. The truffle fries were cold and clearly on their second serving, the beef was good, the buttered greens also cold. The food must come from a distance as it all arrives luke to cold. All in all unless you happen to walk past and want to get out of the rain and eat something, i wouldn't make the trip for it.

Our server tried to up sell us on every course. Told us our snacks wouldn’t be enough for 3 people, even though we ended up having too much. When we ordered starters he suggested we order more, even though we’d ordered one each. At the end of the meal he disappeared and we had to find someone to ask for the bill. For what we paid the steaks weren’t great cuts. Dissapointing considering how much I’d looked forward to going.

We went for a Sunday roast the meat was very tasty 4 of our party had the beef sharing roast and 1 the half chicken served with chicken dripping chips. The roast came with a mix of green beans, broad beans, califlower cheese and roast potatoes, broad beans with a roast!? no carrots!! The gravy was very watery tasty but thin.
Our waitress was brilliant very attentive and fun.

Service was really slow had to try and attract attention several times for simple things such as mustard and paper serviette, the bill! Rib eye steak £23 was fatty and chewing and frankly really disappointing
Such a shame as our daughter had booked as a present for us and we had been so looking forward too

One of our party (bruce from scotland) unfortunately geaticulated wildly at the point where our server walked past with a stack of plates resulting in carnage.

The staff were great sorting it out and really attentive for the whole night.

Food ok, but underseasoned and dry burger for my meal. Ok food but nothing we couldn't have got somewhere else unfortunately.

Not bad, just not smashing.

Cheers front of house. You made this 4 star instead of 3.

A favourite of our US family, Tramshed served us a delicious meal, provided great service, and met everyone's expectations. We spent about £100 per head with service, cocktails, and a very lovely French wine with our steaks.

Really great place and friendly service. Delicious food! Slightly cramped tables and the space makes it a little loud but that can't be helped (it is a tramshed after all...)

The food was really good and portions super tasty. I would definitely come here again.
