We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

London Restaurants That Have Reopened For Dine-In Service

A running list of London restaurants that have reopened since July 4th.

Updated 29th July

Since July 4th, restaurants across London have been officially allowed to open for indoor and outdoor dining. Although things are changing quickly, we want to provide you with the most up-to-date information we have: which places are open, whether they’re taking reservations, and any policies they’re putting in place that go beyond the government’s official guidance. For a cheat sheet on what those are, read our FAQ.

While restaurants are in the process of reopening, many places are still offering takeaway and delivery. Check out our collection for hundreds of takeout and delivery options across the city.
