London's best picnics deliveredThe Cheese Bar’s The Beer Boy

Although this isn’t marketed as a picnic as such, we reckon The Cheese Bar’s beer & cheese combo has pretty much everything you need for an off-the-cuff park picnic. It features three 150g pieces of cheese, a packet of Miller's Damsel Crackers to with them and a selection of three beers. It all changes, depending on what’s available so it’s a bit of a potluck affair. They also do a fondue pack which works with a candle, so you could also take that to the park if you fancied.

Delivery area: By post - nationwide
