Pret a Manger is a coffee and food chain which has more than 500 outlets across Britain. A number of locations close to hospitals have reopened their doors in order to provide food and drink to frontline NHS workers as well as offer takeaway and delivery. But which Pret shops have reopened for delivery and how can you get Pret delivered to your home?
All non-essential shops were closed last month.
Only a small list of retailers were left open, including supermarkets, pharmacies and newsagents.
Takeaway and delivery services may remain open and operational in line with Government guidance.
The Government guidance reads: “Food delivery and takeaway can remain operational and can be a new activity supported by the new permitted development right.
“This covers the provision of hot or cold food that has been prepared for consumers for collection or delivery to be consumed, reheated or cooked by consumers off the premises.”

All Pret workers will be paid 100 percent of the salary, whether they have volunteered or not.
Protective Perspex screens have been fitted to tills to separate customers and workers.
Only card payments will be permitted to reduce the risk of spread through cash.
Only a maximum of six customers will be allowed in the shops and cafes at any one time to ensure the two-metre social distancing is maintained.
Additionally, all contact surfaces will have a strict 30-minute sanitising schedule, with movement in the kitchens minimised as far as possible.
How to get Pret delivered to your home?
Delivery is now available through Just Eat so more people can enjoy Pret’s food without leaving their home for a fee of just £3.
The partnership has initially launched in London and will continue to roll out to further sites across the country in the coming months.
Delivery is available during the opening hours listed above and will include breakfast and lunch items, as well as coffee, fresh baguettes and a Produce Box, including fruit, vegetables and herbs.

Andrew Kenny, Just Eat UK managing director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Pret to deliver their incredibly popular dishes.
“Pret is a workday staple and being able to enjoy your go-to lunch direct to your door is something many will be excited about, especially after working from home for the last few weeks.
“Since lockdown began, our data has shown a shift in the nation’s eating habits. We’re eating earlier, with families coming together for lunch, and we’re craving items that are more difficult to get in supermarkets.
“Through our partnership with Pret, and a wide range of other high street restaurants that are now available for delivery again on Just Eat, we hope to continue offering the widest choice of the food you love – be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.”
