The terrace looks directly onto Hyde Park, so diners can enjoy eating a menu of Dinner’s historically inspired dishes whilst enjoying views of one of London’s historic locations.  

It comes as top restaurants and high street chains have found many ways to cope after closing through the coronavirus pandemic.

Many, including Dishoom, Dirty Bones and Bancone have offered meal kits for customers to make their own versions of the popular dish at home, while others have launched takeaway services for the first time.

Other popular dishes include Hakkasan’s Award-winning dim sum, and the crispy duck and watermelon salad from Sexy Fish are also on the app, alongside treats from Fortnum and Mason such as champagne and chocolate.
