Our mission is to bring the world's local restaurants into everyone's home or office - fast.
Deliveroo lets you order amazing food from the best loved local restaurants who otherwise may not offer delivery.
We work with hundreds of restaurant chains and many top quality independents to deliver their food to your home or office. Our customers are as passionate about great food as we are!
We have a fantastic team of drivers who take pride in getting your food to you as quickly as roo-ly possible. We call them the Roowomen and Roomen.
After moving from New York to London, our mighty foundeROO was surprised to find that it was nearly impossible to get great quality food delivered. So he made it his personal mission to bring great restaurants closer to their customers.
Oh, and the name? Kangaroos are known to be incredibly protective of their young. At Deliveroo we are equally protective of your dining experience.
It's really quite straightforward - simply enter your postcode on the homepage, and we'll show you all the great restaurants that deliver to you. Choose the restaurant that tickles your fancy, put together your order, enter your address and payment details, and that's it - we'll get your food to you as soon as possible!
We personally curate a high-quality and diverse selection of restaurants in your area. This can range from a top neighbourhood Italian trattoria to well-regarded national burger chain. The only thing you will not find on Deliveroo is low-quality takeaway restaurants.
We deliver every day from noon to 23:00.
Once you place an order, one of our capable Roowomen and Roomen will head to the restaurant to pick up your meal. With a hop, skip and a jump they will then deliver your order to you!
People still use cash? Really, son? This is the new millennium, we don’t party like it’s 1999.
In all seriousness - we only take card payments because it lets us provide you with the best possible experience. It creates a safer working environment for our Roowomen and Roomen, too. Feel free to tip your driver in cash, however.
Whether you tip or not is completely up to you, but of course is always appreciated and encouraged. You can tip via your card when placing your order, or tip in cash when the driver delivers your food. Our Roowomen and Roomen receive 100% of all tips - we don’t keep any of it!
The minimum order value varies depending on the restaurant you order from. It's typically £15.00.
If you’re lucky enough to have a voucher code, you can redeem this on the app. New customers can use the website, too.
If you’re using the app, click into your account and pop your code into the ‘Enter a Promo Code’ field. On the website, hit ‘Add a Code’ at the checkout stage. And that’s it, cheaper eats on us!
We encourage our restaurants to always use the same pricing for delivery as they do for their in-house menu, although there may be exceptions. If you have any questions about menu pricing, please contact the restaurant directly.
Yes, of course! You can schedule orders for up to one day in advance and choose any delivery time from midday onwards that suits you best.
Unfortunately we don’t currently offer collection, however this is something we would like to offer in the future.
Packaging always depends on the type of food and restaurant you are ordering from. Our restaurants take great care to use packaging that maintains the food temperature for as long as possible.
If you have suggestions regarding the packaging/appearance of the food, please contact us on email@example.com and we will relay your thoughts to the restaurant. You can also contact the restaurant directly if you wish.
Questions about my order
We have a dedicated customer service team that looks after your entire Deliveroo experience from the moment you place an order on our website through to it arriving at your doorstep. However, we do understand that sometimes things might go wrong. In the rare case that this happens, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on +44 203 699 9977 and we will look into this for you.
Contact our customer service team at email@example.com or on +44 203 699 9977 and we’ll do our best to make sure you get all the items you want added to your order.
Our Roowomen and Roomen are always hopping along as quickly as they can, but sometimes things outside of our control can cause a delay. Where we can, we will always try and proactively call you if we feel that your order might not arrive within the estimated time of delivery, and our team will be working to get your order to you as quickly as possible.
If you think you won’t be at the delivery address in time to receive your order, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling +44 203 699 9977.
Our driver will always try to call you if there is an issue once they reach your delivery address. If they are unable to get hold of you, our customer service team will try and reach you via phone and email. Please check your emails during the delivery time for any updates.
If we cannot contact you and are unable to deliver the order, our delivery driver will wait for up to 10 minutes before leaving the area to complete the next order. In this event we are afraid that you will still be charged for your order. To prevent this from happening, it’s always a good idea to double-check your contact and address details.
Sorry, this offer is only valid for new users of Deliveroo. And don't keep making accounts, we'll know! (And you wouldn't like us when we're angry). To find out more, please go to our T&C's.
You need to have ordered a certain number of times to get your invite link. Keep ordering and it will magically appear!
If you have specific allergies and are concerned about any items on the menu, please contact the restaurant directly.
We are rapidly expanding throughout the country and will hopefully be working with restaurants near you soon!
We have a dedicated team who will be more than happy to assist you with your office catering and events needs. Get in touch with us at email@example.com.

The first (and subsequent) payments for Deliveroo Plus will be taken up to 24 hours after your free trial (or paid) period ends. For example, if your free trial period for Deliveroo Plus ends at 2pm on 14 February, your payment method will be charged with £7.99 at 2pm on 14 February for the next subscription period of 14 February to 14 March.
The dates of each planned payment are listed on your Account page on our website or in the app.
Deliveroo Plus customers in some areas may receive an email each month containing a set of offers for discounts on orders placed at participating restaurants on Deliveroo. If there are offers happening in your area, we’ll let you know via email.
To be eligible to receive these offers, your location must be in the delivery range of at l least one of the restaurants participating in the programme each month. So, we’ll only send you offers that apply to your area.

Deliveroo Plus Restaurant Offers can only be redeemed by customers with an active Deliveroo Plus subscription. Each voucher can only be redeemed once. Offers are subject to their own terms and conditions, which will be stated within the email containing the offers.
You can add the voucher to your account for 30 days from receipt of the offer. Vouchers remain available to redeem for 7 days once added to your account.
Deliveroo Plus is intended for individual customers only. Sharing your Deliveroo Plus subscription is a violation of your subscription terms and may mean we review your account in line with Deliveroo’s Terms and Conditions of Service.
Should you choose to end your Deliveroo Plus subscription, you can do this via the ‘My Account’ page of our website or app, or by contacting the Deliveroo Customer Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or on +44 203 699 9977.
If you accidentally cancelled your subscription and wish to remain with the service, you must take out a paid subscription by signing up from the ‘My Account’ section of the website or app. If you cancelled during your free trial period, you will no longer be eligible to use the remaining time on this offer.
It’s not currently possible to change the date on which you’ll be charged for your Deliveroo Plus renewal.
Should you choose not to continue with your Deliveroo Plus subscription you are eligible for a full refund within the first 14 days of your first paid for period. If you choose to cancel your subscription after the 14 day cooling off period, you will not receive a refund for your subscription.
I am a Deliveroo for Business customer. Can I get free delivery on orders placed with my company allowance?
The benefits of Deliveroo Plus are not applied to orders placed using Deliveroo for Business company allowance. If you have a company allowance on your account, you can still receive the benefits of Plus on personal orders placed without credit.
