How much? Park picnic from £20 per person for five items. Patio picnic £100 for two.

Right now there are two to choose from. First is the Picnic In The Park Two Metres Apart which includes such treats as apple, leek and chilli sausage roll, caprese salad pots with pesto drizzle and summer berry rose jelly. Or you could up the ante with a Picnic on the Patio which is more of an at-home job which includes coronation chicken salad, raisin scones with clotted cream and a bottle of Champagne on the menu.

The Cheese Bar’s The Beer Boy

How much? £26.50

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

To ensure you have something rather delicious to line your stomach, they’re selling a special picnic pack which is available when you buy any bottle of wine with them. There’s a boozy cheese selection alongside white wine & jumpier salami, cured and peppered pork belly, homemade kimchi, dolmades and sun-dried tomatoes.

Fortnum's Reunion Hamper

How much? £500 for six

Ideally, you'd be having this off the back of your landrover somewhere deep into your Scottish estate. But, failing that, a particularly pretty London garden square would do the trick. Obviously there are Scotch eggs in here, along with plates of coronation chicken and lobster and crawfish buns. Other treats include waxed cheddar, crispbreads and crudites and then there's dessert along with a bottle each of Champagne and rose plus water. The wicker hamper also includes bamboo cutlery sets, a corkscrew, GoVino wine glasses and picnic plates.

Delivery area: Available for delivery, on a date of your choice, within the M25

The London Shell Company Picnic Box

Where: Sheldon Square, London W2 6DL

How much? £45

Right now you can’t go messing about on the water but, thanks to London Shell Company, you can at least picnic beside it. We tried this gorgeous seafood box and thought it was very good value. It includes a bottle of their own label The Grand Duchess, English sparkling wine from Hampshire’s Hattingley Valley Wines along with a range of seafood. The choice changes regularly but right now it's smoked mackerel, cured Dorset char with house pickles, freshly cooked crevettes with the creamiest mayo and some very good soda bread and butter.

Delivery area: Inside the M25. Deliveries are made on a Friday.

The Perrier-Jouët and Pique Brunch Hamper

How much? £95 or £115

If you had a whole load of fun planned for the summer season - Wimbledon, Chelsea Flower Show, Ascot - that’s all been cancelled, you could make up for it a little by ordering yourself this high-end picnic hamper. The menu’s gorgeous - think Courgette & feta frittata with broad bean, basil & mint salsa or Crispy pancetta mini bagels with avocado, rocket, shaved parmesan & caramelised leek chutney (an alternative veggie menu is equally enticing) - and then there’s the soft Perrier-Jouët picnic blanket, full or half bottle of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne and two flutes to drink it out of. We've tried this one (we were sent a sample and that's our own pic above) and can definitely recommend. 

Delivery area: Most of West and South West London - as far North as Maida Vale, West to East Sheen and South to Wimbledon and Streatham.
