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.

Really lovely venue! We were taken care of and our food arrived quickly given how busy it was. Really well run.

Always so good - delicious, surprising. Informal with a buzzy vibe.

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.

Had a lovely dinner at Caravan on a Tuesday night. The staff were welcoming, friendly and prompt. We had a few small plates to share which were all delicious. I love coming to Exmouth as it's the first Caravan and it feels very homely :)

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

I booked Caravan for me and my veggie friend to have dinner and we were both very impressed by the menu options for vegans and vegetarians! The staff were really friendly and efficient and the food was AMAZING (as were the cocktails). Would recommend to anyone!

The staff were lovely, polite and tentative. I was disappointed with the avocado on toast, for £9 it was a really small portion and nowhere near enough to fill you up. I think any plate you order as a main should at least fill you up. My friend and I had to order another dish between us. I used to have the avocado on toast at Caravan southwark every Thursday, and the portions were bigger.

However, the quality and flavours of the food were lovely.

Food and drinks were amazing, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely.
The service was slightly slow, however this wasn't a problem as we wanted to have a chilled out breakfast

The vegetarian food is sublime!! We had the charred kale and broccoli bowl. Our waiters were friendly, helpful and chatty. The bill was surprisingly high though (£94 e.g. mostly veg, only two main courses for three people and only one glass of wine!). But maybe that is what top notch food costs. The meal was worth it but unfortunately not somewhere we could eat regularly or casually.

Usually enjoy food food at Caravan but several dishes missed the spot yesterday. Over-salted vegetarian option meant I had to order again, and I felt that service was lacking thoughnit was a quiet Monday. I’ll be back as I enjoy Caravan but yesterday was a blip...

We were stuck behind a large noisy party so struggled to have conversation. We thought there were less vegetarian options than normal and the main ingredient of the dishes they did have was sweet potato. Sweet potato is okay but cloying when served in huge quantities. Variety would be appreciated. Definitely not up to standard on this occasion

First time back dining in London and so glad we chose Caravan. Food was absolutely delicious and waitress was wonderful, attentive and really valued us as customers. It was a fabulous pre theatre meal and a lovely setting - our table was in a great spot. Highly recommend to all. Very good value for money.
