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.

    Really laidback, friendly and cozy atmosphere. Starters we're really tasty but maybe needed a little bit more to go around. The main was amazing! So much meat and super tasty, full of smoked flavour. Luckily the desert wasn't too big as after the burger you get really full. Really unique dining experience in a great environment.
