How to support restaurants in London

Here are some clever incentives that restaurants are offering their customers to bring a little light relief during these turbulent times

Cocotte Chicken

This is an incredibly challenging time for the hospitality industry, especially in the light of this week’s Government advice. Support your favourite restaurant, pub or café by treating yourself or a loved one to a delicious meal delivered directly to your door, or buy a voucher to enjoy at a later date. Let’s stand together and do everything we can to prevent permanent closures.

Hot Stone

The authentic Japanese restaurant located in the heart of Angel in Islington, has this week launched a complimentary taxi service initiative. Ensuring both pre-booked guests and future bookings arrive swiftly, safely and securely from the comfort of their own homes ahead of temporarily closing their doors from Monday 23rd March. At this point in time, the re-opening date of Hot Stone is unknown.

Offering a maximum of £30 in taxi credit per person, customers will simply need to display their receipt via their phones from any taxi provider and the total cost will then be deducted from their total food and drink bill. The complimentary taxi service can be used by up to 4 people from the same table. The total cost reduced from the bill will be calculated by doubling the cost of the outbound taxi journey. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with other promotions.


Farm-to-table rotisserie Cocotte (Notting Hill, Shoreditch and soon to be in Parsons Green) offers healthy, delicious homemade dishes using fresh, farm-grown ingredients. They are offering click and collect, Deliveroo services and have also just launched e-gift vouchers which can be purchased via their website:
