1. Jamie's Superfood Salad, Jamie Oliver's Super Food Lunch

A picnic pot prepared by Jamie Oliver's chefs? Yes, please! Packed with goodies like chargrilled avocado, roasted beets, sprouting broccoli and pomegranate seeds, this crunchy salad comes with a generous helping of harissa dressing.

2. Chicken strips, Mother Clucker

Deliveroo

Swap cocktail sausages for these fried chicken strips from Mother Clucker. Twice tea-brined and coated in buttermilk, these strips are seriously crunchy on the outside and super soft in the middle - with a little pot of hot sauce and lime mayo for that all important dunking.

3. Charcuterie, Chez Elles

Deliveroo

No one does picnics better than the French, and Chez Elles' charcuterie is guaranteed to amp up your al-fresco feast. Served with crusty fresh bread, duck rillette and ham hock terrine - just watch out for envious looks from other picnic goers.

4. Beef summer rolls, Whaam Banh Mi

We dare you to try to find a more fresh and fragrant summer snack than these Vietnamese rolls. Whaam Banh Mi fill theirs with tender roast beef, homemade pickles and fresh herbs - make sure you don't let even a scrap of these tasty morsels escape onto the picnic blanket.

5. Lamb shoulder kebab, Chifafa

Deliveroo

Don't be fooled - Chifafa's lamb shoulder kebab isn't the kind you'd only ever devour on the way home after a tipple or two. With no doners in sight, their lamb is marinated in 16 herbs and spices, then slow-cooked and served in souvlaki bread with feta, green mango pickle, red cabbage slaw and mild chilli sauce.

ORDER CHIFAFA

6. Watermelon juice, Roots Juicery

Deliveroo

What with the sun and all that eating, picnics can be thirsty work. Luckily Roots Juicery has a refreshing selection of juices to keep you hydrated and happy. We love the summery Seasonal Juice with watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and mint.

7. Cheeseburger, Bleecker Street

Deliveroo

A favourite at food festivals, this cheeseburger from Bleecker Street will bring a true taste of New York to your al-fresco affair. Cooked medium rare as standard and oozing with American cheese, it's juicy and mad messy - best eat it quick!

8. Moroccan meatballs hot box, Leon

Deliveroo

The lunch legends at Leon know how to cater for a picnic or two. Just try this flavour-packed hot box and you'll know what we mean - grilled meatballs cooked down in a spicy-ish tomato sauce, served with rice, slaw, freshly chopped mint and garlic aioli.

9. Oak smoked salmon sandwich, Souli

10. Peter Andre Yum Yum, Dum Dum Donutterie

Deliveroo

Don't be put off by the name - the only mysterious thing about this baked croissant doughnut is how it tastes so good. Filled with Dulce de Leche creme, drizzled in chocolate and glazed while still warm, it's the ultimate sticky-fingered picnic treat.
