Caravan is a restaurant and bar located on a busy site in Farringdon’s Exmouth Market. With glazed frontage on two sides of the building, overlooking the market and a bustling London intersection, the space has an open and relaxed feel to it. At market level we have created a main dining room seating 48 and a bar seating 18. In warmer months we open our bi-fold doors and let the market in, seating a further 30 outside. The basement houses our kitchen and includes our roastery table that is available for private hire for up to 12 guests.

The food at caravan is well travelled. We use seasonal ingredients to create dishes that draw influence and flavours from around the world. Our food is served from three menus – breakfast (weekdays), brunch (weekends) and our all day lunch and dinner menu which is made up of small and large plates designed for sharing.

A menu refresh would be a good idea. It feels like the menu has been the same for years

My first visit; very impressed. Struggled to read the small print menu in low lighting: had to resort to torches! A very good experience all round, though.

Came for a quick dinner before a show at Sadler’s wells. Food was excellent, we had some small plates to share. The server made sure we had plenty time to get to the show. The restaurant had a warm, laid back vibe; less industrial than other caravan restaurants. We’ll definitely be back.

Very allergy friendly. Our server went and spoke to the kitchen directly about the allergen I needed to avoid. Really impressed, we were made to feel very welcome. Great service and the food was beautifully cooked.

Excellent food, drinks and location, but we felt a bit uncomfortable when the waitress insisted for us to pay the optional service charges. So be careful what they add up to your bill.

We visited Caravan for a Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary. We both had two courses and absolutely loved everything we ate. I had the jalapeño cornbread and everything on the plate was really vibrant and tasty. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere, but slightly noisy!

As a regular customer I found this experience awful! The food was not great and the portions were miniscule. Certainly not value for money.

Everything was good rather than outstanding. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy so service was quick. Cauliflower and burrata starters were tasty and the cod main course was cooked well. The staff were friendly but a little unsubtle when they wanted to close (we were the last table). An enjoyable evening but not sure that I'd race back there.

First time we went to Caravan we loved it. However, each time since they seem to have fewer vegetarian options than on our first visit. Also most contain sweet potato so not massively exciting and the menu never seems to change. It's okay but could do better

Nice, buzzing place on the main street by Exmouth Market. We all had the chorizo/egg hash which was yummy. Good prices and nice staff. Only minus is no kids menu, but they made us something. Sat outside which was nice, they had blankets etc. Good coffee too.

Service was very friendly and this is a nice, cosy space for dinner. However dishes that we have eaten at the City branch of Caravan were not up to the same standard.

Delicious mix of small plates in diverse cuisines, middle Eastern and Asian. Loved the jalapeño cornbread. And fab vanilla ice cream cream with coffee caramel sauce. Would go again tomorrow!

The food was delicious other than the avocado which was hard and brown, but the table was on a huge slant and was very wobbly so kept spilling drinks. The staff were really nice and the place itself lovely too.

Just personal, but I really didn’t like my halloumi main dish. Hence the score. Everyone else thought their mains were just ok. And it was a bit pricey.

Lovely place with cool, very attentive staff. Food value for money could be better (small bowl of yoghurt with half a raspberry, granola and hazelnuts £7), but London is expensive as we all know. :) I’ll be back! Coffee is great
