After spending last Valentine’s Day in lockdown, Londoners can finally venture out and make special plans for the day of love.

So, if you’d rather enjoy the most romantic day of the year from the comfort of your home, here are 15 of the best Valentine’s Day-inspired meals from London restaurants that can be delivered straight to you. After all, it’s true what they say, the way to a man’s (or woman’s) heart is through their stomach… But even if you’re celebrating Galentine’s or are flying solo this year, these deliveries will definitely add a bit of excitement and romance to your February 14!
