Restaurants across London are rapidly adapting to the changing and unknown current situation. While some have unfortunately had to close their doors, many have also launched delivery and takeaway services to ensure Londoners can still experience quality food to their doors while unable to leave their homes.
Contactless and cashless payments have also been introduced as well as special reductions and gift cards. Many are also offering special discounts for the country’s hardworking and invaluable NHS staff.
Supporting London’s restaurants and independent businesses at this critical time is vital in building resilience for the city and its workers under these exceptional circumstances.
Below is a round-up of the latest from central London restaurants and retailers. Please be aware that as we are being updated about the crisis on a daily basis, so too are the restaurants, cafes, and delis that are offering home delivery. These may change at any given notice, but currently offer the following:
