M&B signs one of the biggest pub partnerships for delivery in the UK

Toby Carvery

Uber Eats and Mitchells & Butlers have signed one of the biggest pub partnerships in the UK, bringing 1,000 bars, restaurants and pubs to the app.

Dishes from Toby Carvery, Miller & Carter, Harvester and Browns will soon be available via Uber Eats’ delivery network as a result of the deal.

Uber Eats said it is looking to step up its support of the pub industry after offering discounted rides to pubs earlier this year as they reopened after the national lockdown.

Eve Henrikson, regional general manager delivery, EMEA, at Uber, said: “Pubs across the UK have been resilient in dealing with closures over the past 18 months, and we want to help them thrive by adding home delivery to their business.

“Customers aren’t just using Uber Eats for a quick takeaway bite. Increasingly, we’re seeing people use the app to order sit-down meals for the whole family, and what better lunch or dinner with family and friends than some hearty pub grub.”

Susan Martindale, executive lead on delivery at Mitchells & Butlers, added: “While we don’t think there’s anything better than the full dining-in experience, we’re excited to partner with Uber Eats to expand our delivery offer so even more of our customers can enjoy their favourite pub and restaurant meals at home, too.”

Uber Eats also released data showing the top pub dishes ordered through its app.

The traditional carvery tops the list, with more than 10 times the number of orders of the number two dish, chocolate fudge cake.

Roast potatoes, chicken tenders and pasta salad rounded out the top five, while vegan apple pie (14), halloumi fries (16) and vegan carveries (19) made a strong showing for those who prefer meat-free alternatives.
