There's a new food delivery service in town, called Deliveroo. We tried it out at the weekend and we were very impressed with the ease of ordering and the super quick delivery.
Deliveroo prides itself on working with a carefully selected number of good quality restaurants - places like Pho, Pizza Express, Wagamamas and Zizzi amongst others. So not the usual takeaway places, but great eateries who otherwise might not offer delivery. We had four well-known local restaurants to choose from when we ordered; Greek, burger, pizza and healthy nutrition type offerings, so a good range of meal options. We chose pizza:
The website is very simple to use - just tap in your postcode and you will be shown which restaurants deliver locally, with their 'asap' order/delivery time shown right up front, very helpfully. You can also select a specific time for delivery later today or tomorrow if you're good at planning ahead! Our options all showed between 35-50 minute wait, but when it came to it we got our food even quicker than that, about 30 minutes after ordering. It was delicious too. Great customer service is always about under-promising and over-delivering I think!
The average order takes 32 minutes to be delivered apparently, and Deliveroo can also deliver to offices - lunch for the team for example. You pay for your food up front by credit card, and there is a small delivery charge (£2.50 for us). You can choose whether to leave the driver a tip by adding it to your shopping basket as you order online (but you can also hand the driver a cash tip if you prefer).
If anyone would like to try this food delivery service, comment below (or email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org) with the email address you would sign up to Deliveroo with. I can then provide a code to give you £10 off your order, which you would place yourself and get delivered locally.
Why not try it today? If you have any other questions about how it all works, you can visit their great FAQ page.
Disclosure: we were given credit to try the Deliveroo service. All comments and opinions are ours and we haven't been asked to write anything specific.
