We’ve been here once before, and this time we’re doing it right!

Lockdown 1 was tough on us all. Everyone was trying to find their feet and adapt to the scary new world out there and many, rather understandably, simply wanted to hunker down and ride out the storm. But so many of you were so keen to continue to support our incredible indie businesses who readily adapted to the changing situation and wanted to order from those who offered deliveries. So, round 2 is upon us – and this time we’re ready for it! We’ve created your essential guide to riding out lockdown 2 in the most mouth-watering way possible.

Following on from our highly-read guide to Birmingham’s Independents Offering Take-Away, Collection And Delivery Services (we think it’s actually our most read and shared article ever!), we decided to double down and showcase 40 exceptionally mouth-watering dishes you can get delivered directly to your door from Brum’s very best independents during lockdown. 

Scroll through our glorious guide, pick a dish that takes your fancy, and then go support local in the tastiest way possible – eat, then repeat!

**Warning: this guide will make you feel very hungry, and will result in loss of money due to ordering ALL the food**

Support Us In Our Mission To Support Local

Independent Birmingham is a valuable platform for celebrating and shining a light on Birmingham’s marvellous independent scene. However, we too are a small, independent business facing uncertainty at this testing time. Help keep IB alive by downloading the Independent Birmingham App and signing up as a member, here – the IB App not only provides a fantastic database of independents for you to discover and support, it also allows you to enjoy up to 25% off (alongside exclusive 2-for-1 offers, freebies, and more) at over 135 of the very best independents across Birmingham and Solihull – all for just £1.99 a month.

A number of independents on the IB App have temporarily closed, so instead of using the amazing discounts/deals on there think of it as a subscription to help keep your favourite local platform alive. Then once lockdown is over – get out there and rediscover your city, one hidden gem at a time, using the IB App
