Executive Chef at Dockmaster’s House is Navin Bhatia, who has trained some of London’s Michelin-starred Indian Chefs and was most recently Group Head Chef for Café Lazeez. Over the years, Navin has set new standards for Indian cuisine and is regarded as one of the leading new wave Indian chefs in the UK with a natural flair for exciting, innovative cuisine that caters to the more health conscious diner.

For Dockmaster’s House Navin has planned a menu featuring ancient, traditional Indian recipes using modern British ingrediants to create a lighter, more contemporary menu. His vision is to bring back to Inidan cuisine what has been lost over the years.. distinctive flavours, aromas and style!


Interiors by Brighton based Design LSM, enhance and restore the beauty and splendour of the original building but also include modern elements into the space to contemporise the environment. Stone and marble floors have been laid throughout the building, in the restaurant rich colours, elegant seating and warm lighting creates a comfortable stylish space. In the bar exposed brickwork, dark leather banquette seating and a granite bar top add to the chic ambience.


Built 200 years ago by the West India Company, the restaurant inhabits the building which was once the Excise Office for West India Quay. In 1846, Joseph Montague, a former dock company constable converted the building into the Jamaica Tavern, a hotel occupied mostly by merchants. The Jamaica Hotel’s license was not renewed in 1925 due to its bad reputation during a period when the police were making a concerted effort to eradicate the local opium trade. In 1926 the building was adapted to provide office for the Dock Superintendent and his staff. The building remained a dock office until 1980. It then came to be misleading called ‘Dockmaster’s House’.
