Where to order a ready-made picnic in London

Right now, you can have a picnic in the park with one other person - and with six of you by the end of the month. So if you're heading for a picnic in London's parks, make it a real feast. Here are the best London picnics for you to order and enjoy at your leisure whether you'll be out in the park or at home in the garden.

Anson & Curtis Gourmet Picnics

Normally this catering company is busy making sure the well-heeled folk at Ascot and Henley are well fed. When those events were put on hold, they switched to delivering luxury picnics. 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 and shredded sesame chicken on a spring vegetable slaw. There's also a seafood version and the "Greengrocer's" picnic if you're after something veggie. 

Delivery area: Throughout London from £10

The 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

The London Shell Company Picnic Box

Where: The Grand Duchess, Sheldon Square, London W2 6DL

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 a seafood box from them 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 Whole Smoked Trout, Cold Smoked Salmon, Pepper Cured Char, freshly cooked crevettes with the creamiest mayo and some very good soda bread and butter.

Delivery area: Collection from Paddington
