One thing we’ve noticed over the past year and a bit of pandemic life is that food delivery services have upped their game. Restaurants and pubs, having spent so many months closed to diners, have found new ways to get their delicious food into our hands. While our luxury serviced apartments all come with well-stocked kitchens, we know that when you’re on holiday, or a business trip, you don’t always want to be cooking every night. So we’ve rounded up some of the best food delivery options near Hampton Court and Claygate to give you some ideas for a tasty night in. Read on for more.
Usually focused on party catering, At Home has pivoted to offer meal delivery services. Their menu, which changes weekly, really is quite impressive so take a look for yourself. But be warned – it will leave you feeling famished!
2. Social Mix
Social Mix are cocktail specialists and the creators of lockdown cocktail delivery cleverly named Locktails. All the drinks are served in jam jars and you’ll get everything you need delivered right to your door.
Delicious shortcrust pastry tart bases and delicious fillings. Mix and match your bases and fillings and bake them in your Craven House kitchen for a meal that is homemade sans any of the faff.
4. Bombay Social
Fancy some India? Look no further than Esher’s Bombay Social. Serving up sharing platters and tapas as well as traditional mains you can find them on Uber eats and Deliveroo.
Lebanese food never tasted (or looked) so good. Get lunch or dinner delivered (before 9pm) from our friends just down the road on Hampton Court high street.
Afternoon tea, complete with freshly baked scones and prosecco, delivered right to your door? Now we’re talking. McLaren Fine Foods also offers a vegetarian, kids and gluten free option of their delicious afternoon tea delivery.
7. The Plough
Given the events of the last year it was only a matter of time before farmer’s markets found their way online and The Plough has done just that.
Offering curated boxes of the very best Surrey produce, from the Brunch or Artisan Deli Boxes to the Cheese Boards and Date Night Meal Kits, you’re sure to find something to tickle your taste buds.
8. Mandiras Kitchen
We all know it’s not possible to have too much Indian food. And when it’s award winning, small batch, frozen meals made from family recipes, who can say no? Mandira’s Kitchen even offers ‘Staycation boxes’.
9. Peapod & Co Roast Boxes
Now this is luxury – a roast in a box delivered right to you? Sign us up. Choose from free-range Cotswolds chicken with thyme or shoulder of lamb with rosemary and garlic and they deliver it, along with duck fat roast potatoes, Yorkshire puds, pea puree, seasonal veg, and jus gravy. That’s Sunday sorted. Just don’t forget – you’ll need to order in advance.
10. Cook food
A (very) firm favourite amongst everyone we know – say hello to Cook; luxury frozen meals. Whack them in the oven and 45-50 minutes later you’ve got a delicious meal, and no washing up. Aside from the food, one of Cook’s big ‘pros’ is that they offer quick delivery. Why not set up an order to arrive just before you do, let us know and we’ll have it all stashed in the freezer ready and waiting for you. We highly recommend their sticky toffee pudding and beef stroganoff.
While the Craven House kitchens have everything you need to cook up a storm, we’re all about making holidays as easy, indulgent and restful as possible. Sometimes that means ordering food.
Please do let me know if you have any questions or anything I can assist with.
I look forward to welcoming you to Craven House,
All the best,
