The London Restaurants Now Taking Table 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 rumours of opening potentially available to those with social distancing measures in place, we want to share the London restaurants now taking future table bookings in the hope that they'll be able to welcome you back once July 4th rolls around.
*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.
