The pop-up, running for three days and located in Hoxton Square, aims to celebrate the start of summer, offering open-air spaces to relax and the chance for guests to order food from nearby restaurants and have it delivered direct to the garden. 

The garden will also be offering night time entertainment, with a garden bar featuring a guest DJ and will host a range of drinks partners who will be providing wine, beer and cocktails.

Partners announced so far include Brought Beer, Clapton Craft, The Sampler, Lea & Sandeman, Borough Wines and Boost Juice.

Dan Warne, Deliveroo’s managing director for UK & Ireland, said: "Enjoying the outdoors is becoming increasingly difficult in built up areas like London, and given the British summer isn’t exactly reliable, we need to be ready at all times.

"We hope The Deliveroo Garden will encourage Brits to ditch their desks and make the most of their time outside, and order in to eat out."

The pop-up is running for three days, until the 10 June. Deliveroo recently unveiled a giant slot machine for hungry London commuters.
