This food, drink and live music destination is situated next door to Hackney Central station on Amhurst Road. It has top quality food and drink alongside an exciting music programme in the unique space of a redeveloped railway station.

The menu features modern interpretation of classic East End dishes. Many dishes also showcase the techniques of curing smoking and pickling that are celebrated in Nordic cuisine.
