The best pubs and restaurants doing takeaway mulled wine for a festive winter walk.

It’s official: London is in tier 3. Thankfully, non-essential shops are open so you can finish up the last of your Christmas shopping, and you can still go to your gym or hairdresser. Sadly, though, festive catch-ups with friends over a few drinks are off the table. 

But, although we won’t be heading to any bars or restaurants, there’s one thing that we most certainly can do, and that is to go for a socially distanced walk.

That’s right, taking a long, crisp winter walk in one of London’s lovely parks is something we’re revelling in right now. And, while we’re loving the colder weather for the excuse to break out our winter wardrobes, it never hurts to have a warm drink to keep your hands toastie.

At this time of year, there is only one warm drink we’ve got in mind, though, and that’s a sweet cup of mulled wine. The good news? Certain pubs, bars and restaurants in London are still doing treats like mulled wine, mulled cider and hot toddies to take away. 

So, check out this list and see if there’s somewhere to get a takeaway cup of mulled wine near you.
