VALENTINE'S DAY isn't cancelled - especially if these restaurants have anything to say about it.

Back in 'normal times' Valentine's meant one thing; getting dolled up and going out for a fancy meal.

However this year things are looking a bit more intimate with everyone being stuck inside and unable to go out.

Bring the romance home this year and order a takeaway or DIY meal box from your most-loved restaurant and have a special meal at home.

Whether you're alone or lucky-in-love, these restaurants are serving up a range of mouthwatering feasts this Sunday:
