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.

    I love caravan and have been to various branches. Exmouth market is the worst lay out and ambience. The tables are cramped and gives the restaurant a crowded feel. On top of this the music is extremely loud. Not quite the relaxing atmosphere I am used to. The food was great as always, but I’d choose a different branch next time.

    Food was good but the service was poor. Staff seemed quite vacant and we waited ages any time we needed anything - to order, to get the bill etc.

    Caravan Exmouth MarketResponded on January 16, 2023Hi Amy, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your food on your visit here. But I am so sorry to read that you were let down by the service you received. Providing personal, efficient, and friendly service is something we really pride ourselves on here at Caravan Exmouth Market, so I am disappointed to see that, on this occasion, we appear to have dropped the ball. If you have any more details on the time you dined and anything else that was irksome, I'd love to have the chance to look into this further. Please email me at niamh@caravanonexmouth.co.uk. I really appreciate the feedback and hope that we can welcome you back sometime. Warm Regards Niamh (General Manager @ Caravan Exmouth Market)

    Very nice for a quick pre theatre lunch. Delicious food and drink. Felt very healthy and imaginative. Nice atmosphere. Only four stars for ambience as it was a little bit cold and one member of staff had clothes that looked like a spell in a washing machine might be an idea. Would however definitely go back and everyone was delightful.

    We were disappointed, as a pre-booked party of 5, to be crammed onto 2 small tables that might have sat 4. This effected our food order, as there would not have been space to share plates. It would have been better to either have declined our booking, or at least to have pre-warned us of the seating problem. We did ask to move to something larger, but this was said to be impossible. It changed what would have been an enjoyable experience into a squash.

    Caravan Exmouth MarketResponded on December 27, 2022Hi Colin, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback following your visit to Caravan Exmouth Market. I am so sorry the table configuration was a disappointment to you. All of our four person tables, bar two, are possible to book as 5-person sittings and it is quite common practise here, given we're such a small space. Feasting-style is the recommended way to dine at Caravan and I am sorry that you felt it wouldn't be possible in this case. Your waiter should have been able to orchestrate a sharing order to arrive in waves, that would be perfectly do-able with a table that size. So I do apologise that it wasn't made clear how we usually navigate this. I do appreciate that it is sometimes just nicer to have more space and with that in mind, should you be willing to visit us again, I would recommend making a note in your booking that you would like a larger table, and we will be sure to accommodate your request. We hope to see you again soon! Warm Regards, Niamh (General Manager @ Caravan Exmouth Market)

    Menu great, main course was not as hot as it should have been. Place very drafty on a cold night, staff pleasant

    Caravan Exmouth MarketResponded on December 27, 2022Hi Libby, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback on your meal at caravan Exmouth Market. I'm sorry that there were enough disappointments to warrant a 3* rating. We endeavour to provide warm and friendly service and exceptional food and it seems on this occasion that we fell a little short. Any further feedback would be helpful so that we can work to improve, if you have the time, my email is niamh@caravanonexmouth.co.uk. Regarding the draft, this is very old building and the temperature can be hard to control in the depths of winter. We are in the process making some improvements to the exteriors that will hopefully help! But I am truly sorry if this had a negative impact on your meal with us. We hope to welcome you back soon!

    we weren't able to order alcohol with our brunch until after 12. Our table was booked for 11.30am on a Sunday but due to there being a church nearby, we had to order our cocktail after finishing our food. Maybe this could be mentioned on the website.

    We were late for our reservation. However, the staff made an effort to accommodate our group. The food was delicious but a bit cold. The restaurant was very cold and you could feel the blustery wind from outside coming in. That was the main issue this time. Service was friendly and it's always nice to come back.

    Great food, however the service was a little sketchy, although friendly. It took a while to get served. The starters arrived a good five minutes before drinks, and the table clearing after courses was not great. The food was great, atmosphere lively, and service was friendly.

    Pleasant setting on the corner of Exmouth Market, I’d recommend visiting. Our food was prepared and presented to a high standard and the table was sufficient to meeting friends. The only small gripe is that the tables are packed in so you do not get much space. Would not put us off going again, though.

    The relaxed atmosphere is extremely appealing. The menu is always varied and interesting with great flavour combinations. Starters too many wonderful things to decide on, main courses great and sides especially the Rosemary chips superb. Only criticism was the frangipan was tasteless. I make it myself and it was described with raspberries of which there were 3. The other desserts we order were great but I think the frangipan needed more sugar, almond essence or something with taste and the raspberry description needs a bit more thought. But a great evening in a cool part of town with a lovely relaxed vibe and good staff.

    Disappointing. I’ve been visiting Caravan for about 10 years. The food quality has definitely gone down. Took a group of friends visiting from abroad. The baked eggs were terrible - the eggs were way over cooked and the sauce which used to be delicious just had no depth of flavour, no spice and was also quite dry. The flatbread that now comes on the side tastes like a supermarket flatbread - not the delicious sourdough that used to come with it. The hot smoked salmon with scrambled eggs wasn’t great either - eggs way overcooked and dry. I’ve noticed the decline across multiple sites as well.

    Caravan Exmouth MarketResponded on October 31, 2022Hi Francois, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on your visit to Caravan Exmouth Market. I'm so sorry to read that the meal fell so far below expectations. As a long-time Caravan customer, I'm sure you know that this is not how we like to do things. That we pride ourselves on serving well-sourced, well-presented, and most importantly, delicious, food! The baked eggs and the salmon and scrambled eggs are 2 of our most popular dishes, and to get them both so wrong on this occasion is a great shame. Your feedback, however, is so valuable and focused that I will be able to go over all these details with the kitchen and management team here to improve upon your experience, and therefore the experience of other customers. I hope you will be compelled to return and give us the chance to restore your faith in a restaurant you have shown loyal custom to for so long. Best, Niamh (General Manager @ Caravan Exmouth Market)

    Food was all pretty small and uninspiring. The fruit bowl was 7 pounds but was tiny and not presented well, for instance. I asked for two pieces of toast and one that came was only half a piece.
