Pop-up London Transport Canteen in New Oxford Street

To celebrate London Design Festival, Canteen and Transport For London are opening a special five day pop-up transport canteen with dishes inspired by the original London Transport recipes from the 1950s.

"Transport for London has collaborated with restaurant chain Canteen to create a pop up restaurant celebrating the London Transport Canteen tradition.  Canteen specialise in traditional Great British food and will be preparing a menu inspired by some of the original 1950s London Transport Canteen recipes served up in a contemporary setting.  The Canteen has been designed by Michael Sodeau who has taken his inspiration from TfL’s historic design collection and the functional spaces of the original canteens. The space features original ceramic tiles by Craven Dunnill Jackfield, archive canteen photographs produced as large scale wallpaper by Printed Space and moquette seating fabric used on the Underground.  Furniture is by Modus and Very Good & Proper."
