Movement within London has once again been severely restricted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Throughout November, people will only be allowed to leave their homes for specific reasons, and eating in Michelin star restaurants is not one of them. All restaurants and bars will be forced to close until at least December 2, but many will be restarting deliveries in an effort to keep business alive.
With the help of online delivery services like Supper and Deliveroo, you can still get your fine-dining fix from the comfort and safety of your own home. We have pulled together a list of amazing restaurants that are offering a home delivery service.
The Game Bird

Few restaurants deliver classic British dining as well as The Game Bird, and now the talented chef Ben Tish is bringing it to your doorstep. Tish, who is also behind the widely acclaimed Norma, has developed several delivery boxes (including a Valentine’s Day feast) but it is the Classic Box that contains what The Game Bird is really about. This four-course menu includes the restaurant’s most famous dishes, including the wonderfully-Instagrammable ‘Pot roast guinea fowl served with crushed celeriac and foie gras sauce’. The menu also contains the restaurant’s signature soda bread and butter followed by ‘Jerusalem artichoke velouté, Westcombe cheddar and truffle rarebit’ to start and a ‘Rhubarb Bakewell tart with clotted cream’ for dessert. All orders also come with a selection of petit fours to bring a delectable end to a night of fine dining.

The two-course menu is completed with a decadent dark chocolate mousse. The other box offers three courses with a main of ’24-hour braised short rib’.
