Boundary Bar & Brasserie

Welcome to Boundary Bar & Brasserie.

You’ll find this elegant spot settled into the ground floor corner of Sir Terence Conran’s boutique hotel, Boundary, in Shoreditch. After Sir Terence passed away in 2020, the hotel passed into the hands of a new owner (James McCulloch of Harcourt Inns), who proceeded to revamp what was once the old Albion cafe space into a buzzy, tastefully-designed bar and brasserie worthy of the Boundary’s location and lineage.


The modestly sized café has somehow been hollowed out into a long spacious corridor of good cheer, jollied along a team of friendly, knowledgeable waiters. Instead of the stripped-back café surroundings and deli fare, there’s now a bustling bar, high tables, and romantic cosy snugs, all of which make for an exceptionally inviting setting to enjoy a drink or two – and, if the feeling takes you – to stay on and dine.


Boundary’s menu is a romp, offering hearty favourites – think sirloin steak, and whole roast chicken – but cooked to a standard that elevates them. Of particular note is the pan-roasted halibut, which comes with sea vegetables and an indulgent leek & clam chowder. Dessert-wise, the salted caramel choux bun with hazelnut praline is a rare treat you’ll find yourself longing for again on the tube home.

Unfortunately, it’s likely that you’ll end up eating too much.

But then, sometimes, boundaries are overrated.
