£10 Steak at Flat Iron

Steak is classic date food, but it can cost a pretty penny. Not at Flat Iron! With only one permanent dish on the menu, a £10 flat iron steak cooked to your liking, there’s no going wrong at this restaurant. Order a side of creamed spinach and chips and a carafe of wine, and settle in for a romantic evening.

Taste all the Wine at Vagabond Wines

Pour your own wine from the tasting machines using a top-up card and enjoy drinking your way through Vagabond’s worldly collection from independent suppliers. Make sure to sample the cheeses and charcuteries from their range of food platters!

Get Back to Nature at Hackney City Farm

Feed the goats and plant your own vegetables at Hackney City Farm, and on the way out, stop by the shop for some farm-fresh eggs.
