Where to Order Takeaway and Delivery in West London

The best food right for lockdown three in the W postcodes

View as Map

Get ready for the novel coronavirus pandemic trilogy: lockdown 3.0. The U.K. government has officially ordered to close all cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants in England for the next month, possibly until Wednesday 31 March.

Once again turning the restaurant and bar industry upside down, but at least this time everyone’s a bit more prepared and knows what to expect. London’s restaurants, cafes, and bars are pivoting back to delivery or takeaway options. Many are offering pickup on-site, orders via phone, text or social media, while others are using third-party delivery services, as well as restaurant meal kits and premium at-home restaurant experiences. London’s hospitality lives to fight on. Many are still open and ready to serve hungry Londoners stuck inside.

Here’s the pick of restaurants in west London.

Note: Due to the changing nature of the coronavirus pandemic this list will be updated continually. Have a tip, on your own restaurant or another? Email london@eater.com, or use the Eater London tipline.
