The London Restaurants Now Taking Bookings

Lockdown has taken its toll on the hospitality industry, as London restaurants remained empty of the joy, bustle and plates that have made it one of the finest cities in the world for food... until now. With plans of a 17th May opening date available to those with social distancing measures in place, we want to share the London restaurants soon to be open and taking bookings.

*please note, opening scenarios will be dictated by both government and venue, so please stay safe, stay in contact with the restaurant you've been requested a table for and be conscious of the impact you have on people around you when leaving home for these bookings.
