Shoreditch’s new drinking and dining destination officially opens to the public

The Boundary Shoreditch is delighted to announce that its brand-new ground floor bar & restaurant – Boundary – is officially open to the public.   


Formerly the Albion Café, the 100-cover restaurant and bar serve modern British fare with a European influence, inspired by Swedish-born Head Chef, Robin Freeman. Centred around a bespoke 20-metre zinc top central bar and flooded with natural light, Boundary will provide locals and visitors with a new favourite East London hangout for all occasions.

Freeman (formerly 1 Lombard Street, Ekte Nordic Kitchen) is overseeing the new East London bar and brasserie, as well as The Boundary’s refurbished rooftop bar and restaurant. Freeman’s menu has been curated to champion seasonal, sustainable British produce cooked in a casual and simple style.  


With a focus on provenance and with much of the produce coming from the British Isles, Boundary’s dishes include Devon diver scallops in anchovy & parsley butter and Norfolk asparagus to steak tartare. Mains feature sharing style Whole roasted chicken with wild garlic butter, grilled cod with roe beurre blanc, wild garlic & nettle risotto and 72-hour short rib with polenta.  


Drinks are served into the small hours of the morning with house classics ranging from a Negroni and Margarita to more exotic cocktails such as the Passion Mint and Mexican. Not to be outdone by the cocktail menu, the beer list champions independent brewers with the line-up including quality lagers such as Stiegl Goldbrau from Austria and Estrella Galicia from Spain. Smaller brewers include pale ales from Tiny Rebel and Deya and IPA’s from London Brewing Co and the legendary Brooklyn Stonewall Inn IPA. Weekends will see a soon-to-launch Saturday brunch and Sunday roast menu.   


Formerly owned and designed by Sir Terence Conran, The Boundary is famed for its contemporary atmosphere and convivial hospitality. The site was recently purchased by Harcourt Inns founder James McCulloch, who is known for developing some of the UK’s foremost pubs such as The Crown and The Hero of Maida.  


Boundary’s founder James McCulloch says: “The ground floor of the Boundary is one of the most underutilised spaces in East London and it’s incredible to see it transformed into this wonderful bar and brasserie. We welcome guests near and far to come down to Boundary, be it for drinks with friends, lazy weekend lunches, family get togethers or first dates, Boundary has something for everyone.”
