The Harwood Arms is now delivering its very highly-rated Sunday roast. We give it a try.
Some London restaurants will clearly need more time to prepare for reopening, particularly when so much of their offering includes counter dining which falls way short of even the new 1m plus rule.

Before lockdown, the Pembury Tavern in Hackney had built up quite the reputation for its pizzas. Now, they're back and post-lockdown are launching as their own delivery pizza brand, Ace Pizza.
