Shanes on Canalside Review

Top 10 things to know about Shanes on Canalside:

1) Ignore the rather bland office blocks of Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park near Stratford and head down down the water. Discover a real hidden gem of an area featuring a variety of bars and restaurants on the canal, including the brilliant Shanes on Canalside.

2) If you’re going there on a summer’s evening, sit outside and overlook the River Lea with its charming canal barges. Fairy lights creep their way up each tree that lines the towpath, creating a romantic little glow.

3) Inside, Shanes on Canalside’s cool dining room fits right in with its equally cool Hackney Wick neighbours. The restaurant decor is all natural woods and cold metals, whilst the abundant greenery reflects Shane’s ethos for wild and foraged ingredients, giving the place a real earthy look.

4) Crystal decanters are filled with water at every table, with the most beautiful glasses to match. Attention to detail is clear and apparent, even though the vibe is utterly laid back.

5) Seasonal and with an emphasis on wild, natural produce (many of which has been sourced locally), the menu isn’t fussy, but it is perfectly concise. All options are tempting, so choices are hard to make. The ham hock croquettes and the asparagus with wild garlic flowers, sorrel, roast squash, samphire and confit fennel are an ideal way to start off a meal.

6) As for mains, the simple sounding sea bream served with mussels, samphire and potatoes is rich, buttery and mouth-watering, whilst the bavette steak with creamy béarnaise, fries (pot of) and salad is always a crowd pleaser.

7) Three desserts to choose from is just enough of a good thing. However, you can’t go wrong with a chocolate fondant with lemon curd and strawberry.

8) Expect plenty of New Zealand wines in a well-compiled wine list whilst cocktails range from the classic Cosmopolitan to the amusingly named Wild Lady Garden. There’s a good range of whiskeys, rums and vodkas too if you fancy propping up the bar.

9) This area is still quite new and finding its feet, but Shanes on Canalside should help get the word out.

10) Lovers of game, line-caught fish, and foraged, fresh, seasonal produce should check this restaurant out. The prices are reasonable, the service great and the vibe chilled.
