The Best Lockdown Takeaways in Bucks

As parents we don’t get the chance to go out for fancy meals very often, so lockdown forcing a lot of local restaurants to offer takeaway is actually a real bonus for us! Whilst it’s obviously not a great time for the restaurants, now is the perfect time to support them and take full advantage of the amazing takeaway food that’s temporarily on offer. Here’s my guide to the best takeaway food on offer this lockdown.

We’re lucky to be surrounded by so many incredible restaurants, so here are some recommendations by me and by you! I asked for your favourites on my Instagram page and you delivered.

Local flavours

Lata Lata

Small plates, local ingredients & seasonal dishes.

Tried and tested : During the last lockdown we had takeaway from Lata Lata as a birthday meal for my husband. We love their food, in fact we were back there for a ‘final supper’ on Wednesday before this latest lockdown. We did have a problem with one of the dishes and a bit of a delay when collecting but they more than made up for this and compensated us with a voucher. This was really early on in lockdown 1 so were new to the whole takeaway thing, they’ve had lots of practice since then! You can’t beat their arancini and they transfer really well as a takeaway dish!

Location: High Wycombe

Delivery or Collection: Collection only

Available: 

Where to order: www.latalata.co.uk

Fego

Serving a wide range of British favourites for brunch, lunch and dinner.

Tried and tested: I haven’t had their food as takeaway but I have eaten here several times and the food is always great. There’s often a queue outside waiting for a table which has to be a good sign! The Ranchero for breakfast is amazing and available on their takeaway menu.

Location: Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross

Delivery or Collection: Delivery and collection

Available: Monday to Sunday, breakfast to dinner

Wild Strawberry Cafe at Peterley Manor Farm

Brunch, lunch and burgers. Check out their instagram page for the daily menu @wildstrawb_cafe. You can also order afternoon tea and picnic hampers.

Tried and tested: This is a big favourite of mine and one of my favourite lunch spots in Bucks. I’ve had loads of dishes from their takeaway lunch menu and it’s always delicious. During the last lockdown we also had one of their picnic hampers which was fantastic!

Location: Great Missenden

Delivery or Collection: Collection only

Available: Tuesday – Sunday

Where to order: Afternoon tea and picnic hampers have to be pre-ordered at www.peterleymanorfarm.co.uk/cafe For everything else just turn up and order from their outdoor Strawberry Shack.

Burgers

No.5 London End

Pop up burger shop on Friday and Saturday nights.

Tried and tested: These burgers are INCREDIBLE!! You can choose from a cheeseburger, buttermilk chicken burger and halloumi burger and sometimes their special truffle burger makes an appearance on the menu. I’ve tried the buttermilk chicken burger and it was insanely good. You have to be quick though, you can order from 10am for same day pick up and they sell out in minutes so set your alarm!

The dynamite roll, closely followed by the soft shell crab uramaki were both our favourites.
