While this travel blogger’s wings have been clipped, I thought I might make myself useful and compile a list of all the small businesses offering takeaway meals and food delivery in my local area of Wokingham, Berkshire.
This is a constantly changing list as different businesses adapt to the lockdown. I’ve done my best to update it regularly – new options have come online and some have had to close completely. Below is correct to the best of my knowledge (read: internet stalking) as of 23rd May 2020.
Whether you’re self-isolating or celebrating a special occasion while staying in, I hope you find these food delivery services helpful. You might like to check out this post on how to handle your takeaway meal safely.

I also wanted to give a shout out to the Love Wokingham Facebook page. I’m not sure who runs it but they are doing a great job at sharing updates on which local businesses in Wokingham are currently operating and have a great list of delivery services in Wokingham and surrounding areas.
