Caravan city is a multi-terraced all-day dining restaurant, coffee and cocktail bar with a flexible working & events space. Signature favourites are combined with new additions, with flavours from around the world, inspired by a lifetime of travel. Open from 7am on weekdays and 10am on the weekends, food is served from three menus- breakfast (weekdays), brunch (weekends) and our all day lunch & dinner menu which is made up of small and large plates designed for sharing.
Natural fabrics and charcoal exposed steel set the scene to the bustling cocktail and coffee bar. Caravan City has it’s own semi-private mezzanine space for up to 20 guests. The outdoor terrace looks over Bloomberg’s new European headquarters, with covered walkways leading to open squares and calming water installations.

Private Dining

The semi-private Mezzanine at Caravan City sits above our bustling bar, overlooking the restaurant with a panoramic view of London's business centre and the central water sculpture, Forgotten Streams. The space can be exclusively hired for meetings, celebrations, drinks parties and seated events. With space for up to 40 guests standing and 20 guests seated, the space lends itself to a number of functions. For more information on the Mezzanine or full venue hire options, please contact the Reservations Team at reservations@caravanrestaurants.co.uk.

Conveniently located between Bank and Cannon Street tubes. Menu based on sharing plates. Could end up getting expensive if you ordered a lot but we had plenty of food and a bottle of wine for £30 a head. The main guy was super helpful with ordering and even bought us over a free dish. Everything was pretty decent. My favourite being the wontons. Wasn't a fan of the cornbread - supposed to be a signature dish but found it a bit dry and tasteless.

This is a good place for a catch up with friends, although it can be a bit noisy. The small plates are a good option if you're not up for a full meal.

Great place for brunch. Overall the meals were very good. Only issue we had was that the scrambled eggs strangely came with sourdough drowned in olive oil - to the point we could taste the olive oil and feel the oil in our throats for hours after.

Food was really delicious and very reasonably priced. For my taste the music was too loud meaning the rest of the restaurant was loud and so made the ambience quite in your face.

We started outside, wanting a couple of drinks before moving inside to eat. Service was very slow to begin with - we had to ask to order drinks - but was much more attentive when we moved inside. We ordered a range of small plates and one large to share, all of which ranged from good to excellent (the squash on tahini was an unexpected highlight). We stayed on for drinks and didn’t feel rushed or any pressure to keep ordering. The final bill was a little less than expected for the quality and quantity of food and drink. Would return.

We really enjoyed the food and decor and service, although the music was far too loud and it was hard to hear conversation. It was a Tuesday dinning not a club so really was the one thing that disappointed

Kitchen equipment broken when we were there, waitress didn’t add any clarity to what was written on menu and coffee took too long so was tepid.

There was an error in the booking.
When we arrived staff were apologetic in acknowledging the error.
There were no tables available.
We ate in another establishment nearby.
Open Table is aware of this and should not have sent the survey to us

Three friends met for dinner after work and felt the need for a cocktail to wind down from the day. The coffee daiquiri was delicious! We ordered 9 dishes to share, including crispy tofu ( much better than I expected), jamon croquettes and lamb meatballs. All dishes were good and left us feeling ‘treated’. A nice glass of wine to go with the food. We shared a dessert which was just enough sweetness with fresh mint tea. Service was friendly and timely.

Good spot adjacent to Cannon Street station. Decent food/coffee although slightly on the expensive side i.e. £14 for a chicken dish / main course.

Visited Saturday for a family birthday meal.
Food was good, some was great. Service was friendly, and we weren't in a rush which was good because I'd say the restaurant was down a staff member or two.
Biggest issue, which to be honest was little mindblowing was the heavy use of peanuts in the menu.....
My daughter has a sever peanut allergy which is a source of significant stess, and whilst the restaurant acknowledged it, a surpringly high number of items included peanuts.
Most surprising was to hear peanut oil was used for items that didn't obviously include nuts.
Is it really necessary to cook cauliflower in peanut oil ? And chicken wings ?
The uncertainty about what actually did and did not include nuts was a big cause of stress for my daughter, not to mention the reason for a lot of hand washing etc...
Not for anaphylactics...

Came here for brunch which was generally busy but got seated straight away. Was my first visit there and wasn't disappointed with the food or the ambience etc.The service however was pretty poor.The serving staff took a while to take our orders.Whilst we werent ina rush to leave, it took almost 15 mins to even get served at one point.The other side of the restaurant was busy and we were on a quieter side but that shouldn't defer the frequency of staff serving us.
Had a great experience overall and hoping the service was a one off!

Food was perfectly fine without being particularly noteworthy (avo on toast and scrambled egg with smoked salmon). And system they have means they aren’t able to link beverage order to come at the same time as food order - each is ready when it’s ready - which seems a bit odd in days of technology. Staff were nice.

Really enjoyed our time at Caravan, food was amazing and staff were friendly enough. I think the staff could do with some more training, the bartender and the waitress were both a bit confused by our orders like they didn’t know the menu well. They had to come back to double check at the table. We also waited a while for our dessert order and someone to come over to ask if we wanted the bill.

Really great food with a good atmosphere. On this occasion, the service was slightly slow which left one of our colleagues not eating at the same time as the rest of the party. However, this was rectified quite quickly. Would dine again.

The food is good, especially the jalapeno cornbread.

However, the service was very hit and miss - they completely forgot to bring two of the dishes we ordered but these items still appeared on the final bill. They also kept coming with free dishes - there might have been an issue between the kitchen and the service staff communications. They also ran out of a dish by 1pm (which is a bit strange).

Overall, food is good but service is hectic and not smooth running.

Had been looing for ward to this visit for some time as it was highly recommended.
Alas, the visit itself was not a success, staff where wonderful and fully deserving of both 5 stars and a better location.

A missing chef meant menu items where not avaialbe, some only revelaed after the orders had been taken.

Orders arrived at different times due to the kitchen issue , and to be honest, whoever created the dishes was tring too hard to.... "Heston" a brunch menu.

Nothing wrong with the food, but there was more effort than flavour in some dishes.

Hopefully the experinece was just a one off, bad day, but all I can rate is on what we experienced.

The salads are listed underneath but separately to the small plates. I ordered a chicken salad for £10.50 and expected a main meal. It was a small bowl with 2 small pieces of chicken. We had to order a 3rd salad to make a meal so over £30 on 3 small salads. Not great for hungry people expecting a main course salad!
