The best Christmas dinner in a box (and more) delivery ideas

UPDATE: Most of the restaurants we originally had on this page have now passed the last delivery date for Christmas. But since the Tier 4 announcement we've started updating it with anything we hear about that will sort you out for Christmas Day in the last few days remaining.

Butchers are on the list of essential shops that can remain open in Tier 4 and you can see our list of the best butchers and meat delivery companies in London right here.
