The top London restaurants now doing home delivery

London’s restaurants may have closed their doors in response to the latest developments surrounding the Covid-19 crisis, but diners who’ve already had their fill of supermarket spag bol can now take advantage of a newly significant trend: restaurant home delivery. Companies such as Deliveroo (who are now offering a no-contact drop-off service) already provide extensive London coverage, but more and more of London's best restaurants are taking matters into their own hands. From Italian to Chinese, here’s our pick of the latest ventures if you fancy eating in style while self-isolating – just be aware that the situation is changing almost by the hour.  Note: Deliveroo and most restaurants will offer a no-contact doorstep delivery if required.

Not that this is the kind of place where you’ll be handed an iPod to accompany your meal. The style of the food is quietly meticulous: there’s flair, but also restraint. We swooned over a plate of pici (that worm-like pasta we all can’t get enough of), rich and creamy with the satisfying bite of artichoke as well as the subtle
