Housed in a derelict train carriage on Brick Lane, Caboose is a unique location for sampling slow-cooked, smokehouse-style British meats. Seating a maximum of 12, the chefs cook in front of you to create an intimate private venue.

Changing with the seasons, the Caboose menu is a nod to the classic American barbecue, with mouth-watering burgers and slaws teaming up with rich sauces, cheeses and mash. Start with an indulgent platter of smoked and cured meats with French cheeses, before tackling one of the meat-laden mains. Paying homage to the origins of the setting, ‘The Fat Controller’ is a sumptuous blend of 10-hour pulled pork belly, smoked over fruit wood and served with barbecue sauce, pickles and smoked cheddar.

Caboose Brick Lane operates a bring-your-own-booze policy, so guests can make themselves at home in the rustically furbished wood cabin. The coffee is always fair trade, and like the meat is carefully sourced.

On one of London’s most fashionable streets, Caboose is a 5-minute walk from Shoreditch High Street Train Station.

    We had a fantastic time in the cabin. They were so attentive, friendly and helpful. Food was great and it's such a fun experience for a good group of friends, would definitely book it again! Love that we could be as noisy, messy and rowdy as we wanted without worrying about bothering other tables because you get the whole place to yourself!

    Lovely setting so small and intimate great for groups of close friends we had 9 of us and felt it was perfect. Food was amazing were great to accommodate and issues and even gave a doggy bag when a burger wasn't finished. BYOB is also a nice idea allows you to drink at your own pace and your own choice of drunk.
