Deliveroo will deliver your takeaway to the park now

SL Deliveroo 001.jpg

Having a picnic in the park with a few drinks has got to be one of the nicest parts of the approximately three days of summer we get every year. You’re eating food! But outside! Man, it’s great.

Unfortunately, when you organise your own picnic, there’s the boring task of actually going into the shop, buying and then assembling the food. Boring. Waste of time. 

Luckily, your days of actually having to think about or prepare food are over! Because Deliveroo have launched a park delivery service.

The service will allow customers to meet delivery drivers at designated ‘meeting points’ to collect their food. And all you have to do is order through the app, get to the meeting point and collect your order, which seems deceptively simple.

Unfortunately, the service is currently only available in East London parks –  Victoria Park, London Fields, Haggerston Park, Hackney Downs and Highbury Fields to be precise. A full list of meeting points is below. 

If you don’t live in East London, though, I cannot help you. You are going to have to buy a packet of lukewarm cocktail sausages and some grapes like the rest of us. Sorry.
