Where to Buy a Luxury Picnic in London – Take 2

We’ve definitely had a few picnic-worthy days recently, which reminded us of our blog from last July about where to buy a luxury picnic in London.

That blog is still very popular but it is time for an update as so many other options are now available.

Ditch the soggy sandwiches and battered fruit – treat yourself to something a little more luxurious!


Carluccio’s branches nationwide allow customers to pre-order their picnic up to 24 hours in advance, or to pop into the restaurant and pick up the chef’s daily choice. There are currently three picnic options available; the vegetarian and classic options cost £45 for two people and the Bambini picnic is £10 for one. Lemon focaccia, biscotti, strawberry tarts, pasta and salads all feature on both adult menus, with a selection of wines available to wash it all down.

Fortnum & Mason 

A Fortnum & Mason picnic hamper is never going to be a budget option but you get what you pay for. For a truly decadent picnic, visit the Fortnum & Mason website and take your pick from the variety of hampers on offer. This Picnic Banquet is packed full of delicious delights such as lobster, smoked salmon, pesto chicken supreme, salads, cheeses and desserts. There are also three half bottles of champagne and wine, alongside everything you need to enjoy your outdoor feast. Picnics must be ordered by 2pm for next day collection.

The Modern Pantry 

Sausage rolls, quiches, salads and brownies are what’s in store for those choosing to purchase their picnic from this Clerkenwell eatery. Your canvas picnic bag will also include disposable cutlery and napkins, as well as either rose lemonade or ginger beer. The exact contents of the picnic change daily, you will be told what it is available when you contact The Modern Pantry 24 hours in advance to book. This picnic is priced at £22.50 per person.

If you prefer to prepare your own picnic…

Make sure you have a great hamper to carry it in. We love this Kissing Robins hamper from Anorak, a traditional wicker picnic basket containing ceramic plates, wine glasses, cutlery, salt and pepper shakers and a bottle opener. The kissing robin print is fabulous! Even if you’re not looking a whole new hamper, check out Anorak’s website for a fantastic selection of prettily patterned picnic ware.
