Housed within a Grade II listed Victorian Grain Store, Caravan King’s Cross was the first restaurant to open within the King’s Cross Partnership Development behind St Pancras/King’s Cross Station. Designed with the building’s history in mind we have created a soft industrial dining room, combined with an open kitchen and coffee take-out bar. Our outdoor terrace sits directly on Granary Square and is enhanced by a beautiful fountain installation. Serving our signature well-travelled breakfast, brunch, all day food and drink menus alongside freshly roasted coffee, you are welcome to dine or drink with us anytime!

Had a bad experience here last night - which is a shame as I've always had a good time at the Bankside Caravan.

We got there 30mins early and had a drink at the bar - 45 mins later and we were still not seated. Told our table wasn't ready despite the place being half empty and people walking in without a reservation and being seated straight away (we were 2 people so not a big group issue). Made a bit of a fuss and they seated us at one of the empty tables - however staff attitude was rude and dismissive.

After ordering the food arrived within 2 minutes and the whole experience was over within 30 mins. We sat finishing our bottle of wine when the manager came over and asked if we could move to another table as she now needed this one for someone else (again the place was half empty). We chose to leave instead - overall we were sat for less than 45 mins.

Won't be going back...

Really enjoyed it here. Very tasty food and friendly staff although very busy so did have to wait some time for service. A lively place. Suitable for groups and catch ups but not really for a first date.

Although tasty, the food arrived not cold but not hot,not even that warm. As it arrived fast I assume it was prepared and awaiting dispatch....... could have been so much better.

Went here for breakfast- the food was great, albeit a little overpriced for what it was. The service was very poor, the waitress frowned at us while we ordered our food and really looked like she did not want to be there. We walked past her on our way out and not even a "goodbye" or "thanks" was uttered.

The service was good and the staff helpful, but it took a further half an hour to get a table even with a booking. The place also closes relatively early, so waiting until 9.40 for a 9pm booking had us on last drinks fairly soon.

I have nothing bad to say about our dinner experience at the Caravan.
We went on a Friday evening and they were extremely busy (make sure to make a reservarion). Regardless of that though- all the staff was friendly, attentive and very welcoming.

The food was delicious and was brought out on time with no delays and the cocktails were delicious. Some snippets pictured below.

The cherry on the icing though was that we had an ‘OpenTable’ voucher that could be used towards our meal (according to OpenTable). When presenting it to our server she brought her manager because she had never seen one. The manager who was a lovely and friendly lady said she had not seen one either so she would have to call someone higher up and asked if we could wait for a few moments while she looks into it. After 5mins she comes back saying that she cant get ahold of anyone but she will honour the voucher regardless and will take it up with opentable directly. That to me spoke millions as many would be quick to dismiss it. So if anyone from management reads this then thank you for everything- you went above and beyond.

Average food on a busy Friday night in Kings X. One of our party was late arriving due to working on call at hospital. She felt rushed due to pressure of being told several times “we need the table back by x time”. An order of fries was also forgotten. Coal office nearby is better.

Great place but bad experience on this occasion. Drink orders were taken but then informed they weren't available (after a slightly longer than expected wait). Our second choice drinks were then knocked over by the waitress, right into my colleague's lap, staining her top with turmeric. Apology wasn't good enough and only the drink was struck from the bill. I have been here before and will return as the food is great and I love the atmosphere, just a series of unfortunate events on this occasion and a service that was unusually below par.
