A Pop-Up Raclette Bar Is Delivering Melt-Your-Own-Cheese Kits To South Londoners

We’ve found the best way to liven up your lockdown.

Le Rac Shack, the UK’s favourite Alpine street food visionaries, resurrected their sorely missed Raclette Bar at the end of last year in an attempt to fix 2020 (better late than never, lads). But the dream was sadly short-lived due to another pesky lockdown. They weren’t going to let that get in the way of providing Londoners with melty cheese and mighty meats though, were they? Of course not.

The Raclette Bar have partnered with Livelyhood Pubs to deliver melt-your-own-cheese straight to your door (and Sunday Roasts too, but that’s a whole other story). You can order yourself a box with or without a raclette burner*, and you’ll also get potatoes, a selection of Alpine meats, roasted Mediterranean vegetables, cornichons, and that all-important raclette cheese. Oh, and their homemade sticky toffee pud to finish. Throw in a fine bottle of red (available at added cost) and you’ve got the whole damn package. Treat yo’ self.

So, if you’re lucky enough to live at a SE or SW postcode, head to the Livelyhood website and place your order. *Note that if you need to add a burner to your order, you can either keep it or return it to The Regent in Balham for a £15 refund.

Since you’re here, here are 11 of the best places to eat in London if you’re totally obsessed with cheese.
