Square Meal Review of Caravan King's Cross ?

The King’s Cross location and larger scale of Caravan’s second branch makes its industrial-themed decor of open pipework, metal girders and concrete floors more convincing than at the Exmouth Market original. Part of the fetching Granary Square development, which now houses Central St Martin’s College, the restaurant offers an eclectic run-through of modern dishes from the Mediterranean and Middle East typified by interesting pairings of niche ingredients – from mellow goats’ curd set off by in-their-prime nectarines and sweetly braised onions or a colourful scrum of tomatoes, chickpeas and flatbread pieces accompanied by yoghurt and sorrel to scallop ceviche with sharp lime, sweet-sour tomatillos and a chilli kick. With delectable brunch options (think coconut bread with lemon-curd cream cheese and strawberries), renowned home-roasted coffees, small plates, large plates and everything in-between, Caravan is a true all-rounder.

    inher30s :: Breakfast at Caravan, Kings Cross

    Having never before really explored Kings Cross, it was with some trepidation that I followed my extremely inadequate new Apple Map (Thanks software upgrade) all the way round to Caravan. What a surprise! Fountain jets, wide open spaces and a marvellous new restaurant!

    Hailing from the Antipodean isles (NZ to be specific), I’m no stranger to the Brunch that has taken on trend status in my new adopted town. So, it seemed only right that I check out their coffee making skills and have some corn fritters...

  1. Came here on a weekend for Brunch and it was really packed. Expect to wait for seats. They will give you a bag of coffee beans I believe and you can seat over the bar to have a drink. Best to make sure that the bean bag is visible so the waiters can find you...

  1. The area around Kings Cross station is slowly being regenerated and while some will miss the area as it was before, I won’t be one of them. The grotty, run-down, whore-strewn Kings Cross of yesteryear can’t disappear fast enough. One of the highlights of the new Kings Cross is Caravan in Granary Square, a short walk north of the station.

    Caravan’s dining room is spartan, but spacious and airy with seriously comfy seats. Although the service is slowly improving, the key word here is ‘slowly’. Waiting 15 minutes for my order to be taken is not my idea of a good time. Although Caravan serves lunch and dinner...

    the dinersaur :: caravan, king

    Having moved into the vicinity of King's Cross Station for several months, I have very quickly fallen in love with the gem that is Caravan, tucked away at Granary Square.

    The building that Caravan is set in is an old granary store and the interiors of the restaurant have been kept raw and warehouse-like, which gives it a very cool vibe...

    The Hungry Porker :: Caravan King’s Cross

    The area behind King’s Cross is at that awkward stage in its transformation where it is on the verge of being the new in-place, but at the moment is just a load of empty office blocks and construction sites. The last time I ate in the new urban hipster hang-out that is Granary Square, was at Grain Store, and I couldn’t get past the industrial and alienating feeling of the place. I was worried I’d get the same from the Caravan here and that it would be a world away from the intimate vibe at the Exmouth Market restaurant. But as soon as I walked in all these worries disappeared. They have managed to warm the space with...

    little swallow : china doll :: Caravan, Kings Cross

    We headed to Caravan for our lively discussion. Newsflash: two prawns doth not make a dish. No matter how small the plate is. We hadn't realised so many of our selection were fried and crumbed (I blame the pregnant lady) but the best dish in our small selection for me was the lamb gnocchi...

    Gingle lists everything :: Caravan King

    Those Kiwis sure as hell know how to do brunch right. After working up an appetite by visiting the El Bulli exhibition my friend and I headed over to Caravan for one hell of a brunch. There was a bit of a wait so we had a drink next door in The Grain Store. They'd said possibly 40 minutes but it was actually only about 15 in the end. I had eaten there before but only for lunch, which was very nice, but brunch really seemed to be the star of the show judging by the menu. I was a little worried how I was going to ever decide what to have though secretly suspected I'd go for the salt beef bubble, even though I'd had...

    Saying it straight :: Caravan King’s Cross.

    We had a little taxi-drama – he couldn’t find it and we went down a number of dead ends, before working out that one has to walk across the bridge.

    But the bridge is impressive, especially at night, leading to a water feature which is as wonderful as it is unexpected. I’m glad that there are security guards, though, because on my own, at night, I’m would not feel entirely safe. Notwithstanding the glamification, it is still the back end of Kings Cross. And it’s dark. IMG_2387

    The restaurant is contained in the same warehouse building as St Martin’s School of Art. There is a small sign, resting...

    Her Favourite Food :: Caravan

    The majority of the hype about Caravan is generated due to the location.
    Situated in front of a fun water feature shooting up from floor in the newly hip Granary Square, and located inside the cavernous Granary Building, this restaurant has a very large, industrial space to fill.

    Expanses of exposed brick work, overhead electrical ducts, low lighting using unmatched bulbs and an open kitchen which is caged but visible, behind a mental grate, is the scene that will greet diners. Light wooden tables, chairs and benches span the vast urban space and the immensely high ceilings create space for the buzzy...

    Tuck & Vine - Tuck and Vine :: Caravan Kings Cross

    Encased in a monolithic brick building - a restored Granary Building, the interior leaves one feeling like they're sitting inside a 'school dining meets community hall', long-hung lights, trestle tables, paper table cloths, cutlery in buckets. This sensation is somewhat validated by the clientele. At brunch this was a mixture of young families who had tottered down the road from Islington and scraggly loose-knit and camo-clad students, nursing a single shot Gibraltar whilst pillaging the wi-fi. That said, the service is smooth and very friendly...

  1. This Sunday I had a hot date with one of my closest friends, Ames, and Andrew. Without any deliberation we selected Caravan for the venue of said hot date.

    Caravan is located just north of Kings Cross station, underneath Central St Martin’s. It faces out onto Granary Square, which had loads of weird events going on – something about the industrial revolution. This seemed to involve dressing pre-pubescent children up as chimney sweeps and someone screeching along to “Who Will Buy” from Oliver. It was a no from me.

    We arrived at 1pm at Caravan and was told there was a 45 min wait. No worries, I thought,...

    Wine, food and other pleasures :: Caravan Kings Cross

    Christmas is now days away and if I could head out for a big festive night out I'd head straight to Caravan in Kings Cross. (This might not be on the cards with a small child and a hefty to-list before hosting the big day for my family, but who knows...)

    The original Caravan in Exmouth Market was impressive enough and I mentioned it on this blog a couple of years ago. But – and big but – Caravan Kings Cross is very good indeed. It helps that it is located by the Regent's Canal in the stylishly renovated Granary Building that also houses Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design. This big, buzzy industrial...

  1. Caravan has a reputation for putting on a good brunch spread. Although they don’t take reservations at weekends, if you’re not battling a hangover it’s easy to get there just before opening at 10am. We did exactly that on a rainy Sunday morning, joining a small gaggle of equally clever diners outside the restaurant.

    Hidden in Granary Square behind King’s Cross St. Pancras station, if you haven’t visited the area before be sure to follow Caravan’s walking instructions available on their website. Despite the rain, Granary Square is a lovely space with over 1000 choreographed fountains and a set of canalside...

  1. Birthdays are always good to be celebrated but sometimes the organising of such an event can require some time. Hence together with a friend, we decided to plan a birthday dinner for a close friend. Originally Grain Store was suggested but as it was fully booked even though the booking was tried to be made a few weeks before the event, the next option was Caravan next door.

    The area in and around Kings Cross and the canal has undergone a big change compared to a few years ago. The regenerated area has made way for Granary Square, “grass” covered stairs, deckchairs and playful fountains. Granary Square has...
