134 London Restaurants With New Delivery & Collection Options
As you know, London’s restaurants closed for dine-in service back in March, and throughout the period up to July 4th, when they were finally allowed to reopen, more and more restaurants got into collection and/or delivery, and others starting offering new specials. Even though we are allowed to go to restaurants again, we can still support those that might be unable to reopen or who are still offering takeaway to compensate for reduced seating. We’ll keep updating this guide with more information as we get it, so stay tuned, and stay well.
