Dock Kitchen


Given a 5-star review by AA Gill in the Sunday Times, Dock Kitchen is tucked away in the old Virgin Recording Studios complex in a no-nonsense Victorian goods yard on the Grand Union Canal.After a short refurbishment in the summer, the Dock Kitchen reopened as an 80 cover restaurant with a brand new kitchen and bar. The set up is simple. At lunchtime you can find a small, daily-changing a la carte menu. In the evenings, there is a series of set menu supper clubs inspired by the season, an author, or a favourite place.Within easy reach of Ladbroke Grove Tube Station, the Dock Kitchen is open for lunch 7 days a week and set menu dinners from Monday to Saturday.


Typical meal price: From £26.00 (USD32.95) per diner

£26 to £40

Dock Kitchen is one of the most elegant venues in London.

With a huge terrace overlooking canal, it's a perfect spot for sipping their signature "Penicillin" during warm summer days.

From the bread, through the salads to the meat you will find flavors which creates mini explosions in your mouth, with pleasurable aftertaste, just like an exquisite wine

And finally the bill was only 70£ including a full meal and...more

Dinner last night has gone horribly wrong for us. It is a nice space with s compelling menu. The appetizers (wild mushroom tagliatelle was over seasoned, but fried mussels with sardines were excellent) were OK, but both the mains were awful. The grilled mackerel was charred on the outside and plain raw at the bone. The grilled lamb chop was not basically straight out of the fridge: completely...more

One of my favourite places to eat in London, suitable for any occasion. Great setting and decor, even have a drink outside in the summer. Food is great, the lamb biriyani is the best ever, and the monthly menus focused on different regions are great. Can't recommend enoughmore

Proper gaff this.

started as a pop up I gather but doesn't feel like that. It has a modern feel with an open kitchen, exposed brick and cool fixtures and fittings without being at all try hard. It's situated on the canal at Ladbroke Grove where I went fishing for dead roach as a kid which doesn't sound promising but of course, things have changed a little since then.

In the summer you can sit...more
