FOOD & DRINK - Kitchen open till 10pm


Our Spice Trail Menu is predominantly plant based, with some ethically sourced meat options, as part of our conscious drive towards sustainability. Our passion is for the cooking of the Middle East and southern Mediterranean so expect punchy flavours, warm spices and as always the best ingredients we can find to comfort and nourish the soul.

With our drinks, we partner with breweries St Austell and Signature Brew for our lagers and IPAs and serve organic wine and prosecco which help international wildlife charity, Born Free. We design our spin on such drinks as Rum Punch, homemade Hackney Spiced Rum, Vegan White Russian and Espresso Martini.



Grow, Hackney is an independent and self-organised eco-system of studios and a creative space with bars and a kitchen created out of an old sausage factory by the River Lea in Hackney Wick. It is run as an experiment in ethical and sustainable business and works in partnership with local artists, musicians, DJ's and community groups. Most events are reasonably priced at £5, less than a pint, from live jazz and blues, open deck reggae, open mic and art and film festivals. Grow pays London Living Wage, uses eco-electricty and sources ethical and locally wherever possible. Grow exists for music, art, food, conversation, community and belonging. Everyone is welcome.
