The restaurant group designs and produces its own furniture, through British design studio Very Good & Proper. The ‘Canteen Utility Chair’ is hugely popular, and is found in each Canteen restaurant, its design and style now instantly recognisable.

Canteen serves seasonal ‘Great British Food’ –  start your day with eggs, bacon bubble and squeak. Tuck into traditional fish and chips at lunchtime, or feast on Beetroot-cured salmon with pickled cucumber and horseradish cream followed by gooseberry fool before a West End show.  This branch of Canteen is at 21 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 7DN
