Get delicious takeaways delivered directly to your hall
Isolating in halls and can't get to the shops? Or maybe you just fancy a delicious takeaway? Either way, we've got you covered.
This article will show you the different food delivery options that are available to you.
To use Deliveroo you will need to download the app or visit their website. Then, enter your halls postcode and just like magic, hundreds of tasty options will pop up. From the popular chain restaurants like Wagamama’s and Nando’s to the local offerings, you’ll find something that takes your fancy.
Don’t want a full meal? Deliveroo can also deliver your groceries and snacks from your local-off licenses. Just select the grocery button at the top of the app.
During the pandemic, Deliveroo has added a contact-free service which you can select at check-out. This means your driver will leave your food delivery in a safe place and wait at a distance for you to collect your order. This is a great option if you are self-isolating.
2. Just Eat
Can’t find what you are looking for on Deliveroo? Just Eat delivers from twice as many restaurants than Deliveroo so you’re bound to find something here.
A fantastic advantage of using Just Eat is that there is no minimum spend on your order. This means if you are ordering for yourself, you don’t need to overdo it.
Keep an eye out for discounts and offers. Just Eat are currently running a ‘Cheeky Tuesdays’ campaign where you can get 20% off when you spend £15 or more.
Uber is more commonly known for its taxi service but they will also deliver your takeaway to halls. To use UberEATS you will need to download the UberEATS app. Like other takeaway apps, you can select from a range of cuisines and restaurants.
Their dietary filter is handy if you have specific dietary requirements. You can use to easily find restaurants offering gluten-free, allergens friendly and halal options.
From time to time they also run promotions offering free delivery.
All orders made via Uber Eats will be left at the door to avoid close contact with the driver.
4. Order with the restaurant directly
Can’t find your favourite restaurant on one of the delivery apps? Some restaurants offer their own takeaway service, so it’s always worth giving them a call or looking on their website to check. You may even be able to save on the cost of delivery if you order directly with the restaurant.
Need some restaurant inspiration?
With so many restaurants on the apps, it can be difficult to know what to pick. On the delivery apps, you will be able to see the restaurant rating and customer reviews. It’s always worth giving these a quick look at before placing an order.
If you are a real foodie you might want to do some extra research. There are plenty of online blogs and articles recommending some of the best restaurants in town. This article lists some of their favourite restaurants in different areas of London.
Important things to remember if you place an order
If you are placing an order, please make sure you use your full address including your name and flat number. Your driver may call you when they are nearby so have your phone nearby and turn it off silent.
We hope you find something delicious to eat and enjoy exploring London’s exciting restaurant scene. If you need more help ordering your takeaway, your halls reception team will be happy to help.
