Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
In March 2020, all London’s bars, restaurants and hospitality venues were ordered to close their doors to the public. After no less than three full lockdowns, a lot of tier juggling, some weird talk about 'substantial meals' and a one-year lockdown anniversary in March the capital’s best-loved eating and drinking establishments still have their shutters down. And for some of them, it’s sadly for good.
Although lots of London’s bars and restaurants managed to keep their kitchens going with takeaways and deliveries, in many cases a comeback hasn’t happened at all. For numerous venues, even operating under non-lockdown restrictions – running a small restaurant floor under social distancing – is simply a financial impossibility.
Here, we bid farewell to the London restaurants and bars that have so far confirmed they won’t be reopening.
