I've been to Caravan four times (lunch and brunch twice), which I feel warrants an unbiased review.
This place is good. Really good. The Kiwis here have mastered the balance of great food and drink, exceptional service and good atmosphere without being too potentious or stuffy.
The brunch menu is great, interesting balance of your regular favourites plus a few interesting options. The poached eggs with Chorizo and yoghurt are not to be missed as is the cornbread French toast. If you're going for brunch – try something you wouldn't normally eat. You will be pleasantly surprised. And of course make sure you have a coffee – it is seriously good.
All day menu – I love the small plates it is a perfect way to dine with a casual group for lunch or dinner and easy to share. And the charming Kiwi Maître D knows his food and wine so he will help you with all your choices.
Definitely my favourites are the cornbread, oxtail and polenta, soft shell crab, salt beef fritters, asparagus and pork buns (yum!).
Again it's that balance thing again… All the staff are super friendly, without being too cheesy or overfamiliar. They are knowledgeable of the menu and professional. It suits the atmosphere. The outside communal seating is brilliant too!
The wine list is comprehensive and dangerous (for all the good reasons!)
Only downer? My travel to get there…I wish I lived closer. Oh and I never seem to hear any music (probably because I am enjoying myself too much to notice…)
This is a refreshing welcome to London. Nick Jones take note.
