Occupying what was once a derelict train cabin, Caboose is parked up at the Old Truman Brewery where it peddles its smoky BBQ meats, burgers, ‘dirty rice’ and Fairtrade coffee to crowds of Shoreditch hipsters. However, the most interesting thing about this set-up is its offer of private parties with BYOB (plus nominal £5 corkage). Here’s the deal: the owners cook at three-course menu (£35) in front of up to 13 guests who are welcome to bring their own booze – there’s a big ice chest by the door and extra fridge space if you need it. They’ll even decorate the space free of charge if it’s a special occasion. A typical menu might kick off with smoky nibbles and dips ahead of a hunk of pulled pork or hickory-smoked brisket with buttermilk jalapeño slaw and roast garlic mash – plus apple crumble to finish. The cabin is yours for the evening, although there’s a strict curfew at 11.15pm.
