Legendary green grocer. Has everything you could wish for from fresh cut meats to anchovy relish.

Legendary food halls. Also great for lunch. Go early in day when less crowded.
Selfridges's/400 Oxford Street W1A
Arguably the best of the food halls. If you are there, do not fail to go to the sandwich counter for a corned beef sandwich...(the Brits call it Boiled Beef). The tastiest ever and unlike the American version. Get your sandwich with the English mustard. So good!
