Dock Kitchen London is the restaurant situated above the Tom Dixon Shop in a converted Wharf Building overlooking the Grand Union Canal, close to Ladbroke Grove.

The Dock Kitchen London is a well guarded secret, tucked away in the old Virgin recording studios complex, in a no-nonsense Victorian goods yard on the Grand Union Canal.

Stevie Parle travels the world in a restless search for the best in honest, generous and simple foods, bringing them together to create a new kind of modern London cooking, and the adjacent Tom Dixon design studio provides a constantly evolving … backdrop and a steady stream of innovative changes.

The shared interest in best quality materials from all over the world makes Portobello Dock a unique and exciting place. The set up is simple. We cook a small daily changing menu at lunch time and in the evening we run set menu supper clubs inspired by the season, an author, or a favorite place. Stevie cooks a prototypical Modern London cuisine drawing on his experiences of living and working in Sri Lanka, New York, Japan and Vietnam. The lunch menu changes daily and is heavily influenced by seasonal produce.

The evening menu is set every week and is inspired by an author, season or favourite place of Stevie’s. These range from the classical ‘Autmnal Bounty’ to the exotic, ‘Flavours of the subcontinent.’

The 80 cover space was designed by the Tom Dixon interior design company Design Research Studio and features furniture and lighting from Tom Dixon’s latest collections.
