While some have unfortunately had to close their doors, many have also launched delivery and takeaway services to ensure Londoners can still experience quality food to their doors while unable to leave their homes.
Contactless and cashless payments have also been introduced as well as special reductions and gift cards. Many are also offering special discounts for the country's hardworking and invaluable NHS staff.
