Celebrate London’s eclectic food scene with the London Restaurant Festival taking place in restaurants across the city. 

This month-long festival is a city-wide homage to great food in London, and the perfect excuse to try out some of the capital’s world-class restaurants.

What's on during London Restaurant Festival 2021?

You can usually enjoy a programme of food and drink events in London which includes specifically curated menus, restaurant hopping tours, movie nights and more! 

Last year, the festival took a slightly different approach with a mix of in-restaurant dining experiences along with some foodie-themed at-home activities. You could support local restaurants by taking advantage of great-value special menus at some of London’s best eateries, attend workshops with top chefs and fill your taste buds with deliciousness all month long.

Here's a flavour of what you could enjoy last year...

In-restaurant foodie events

  • You could treat your taste buds to exclusive four-course menus at top chefs' restaurants, inspired by the world's Top Ten Cuisines.
  • Or immerse yourself in a five-star foodie experience at one of the three Ultimate Gastronomic Weekends hosted by top names in the industry: Giorgio Locatelli, Michel Roux Jr and Marcus Wareing.
  • London's best eateries served flavoursome bites with the specially created Talk on the Town, Outside and Cosy, and Chef-Hosted tasting menus.
  • You could also take your family and friends on a Gourmet Odyssey, a six-course lunch in lavish private rooms of exquisite London restaurants.

Flavoursome and fun virtual experiences 

  • American Express cardmembers could set their tables for a virtually guided cooking session, followed by a live Q&A with a top chef as part of the Chef’s Table At Home series. 
  • You could swap your usual takeaway for a Michelin-quality delivery service from some of the best restaurants within a 2.5-mile radius of your home. 
  • And bring the spirit of the London Restaurant Festival home with virtual masterclasses paired with ingredients delivered right to your door.
  • Top chefs shared their opinions on the future of restaurants at the free Chef's Talk hosted online.
