- Uber Eats and pub operator Mitchells & Butlers sign one of the biggest pub partnerships in the UK, bringing 1,000 bars, restaurants and pubs to the app
- Uber Eats data reveals the nation’s top 25 pub dishes, with a carvery, chocolate fudge cake and pasta salad leading the pack
- To celebrate the partnership, Uber Eats is offering free delivery on grub from Mitchell and Butlers pubs between 11 – 18 November 2021*
11 November 2021: Toby Carveries, steaks from Miller & Carter and delicious meals from Harvester, Browns and your favourite neighbourhood pub will soon be available on Uber Eats app as the delivery app signs one of the biggest pub partnerships in the UK.
By the end of the year, food from 1,000 Mitchells & Butlers restaurants, bars and pubs will be available for home delivery via Uber Eats.
To celebrate the partnership, Uber Eats is offering free delivery on meals from M&B pubs between 11 and 18 November 2021.*
Data from Uber Eats revealed the nation’s top pub dishes by orders on the app, with a traditional carvery topping the list, with more than ten 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.
It’s Uber’s latest move to support the pub industry after offering discounted rides to pubs earlier this year as they reopened after the national lockdown.
To encourage pubs across the country to sign up to the app, Uber Eats is setting up a special taskforce to help create a quick and easy onboarding process. Businesses looking to secure new customers with home delivery can sign up at: https://t.uber.com/PUBS2021.
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, Group HR Director and executive lead on delivery at Mitchells & Butlers commented: “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.”
Business Minister Paul Scully said: “The Great British pub is a mainstay of the local community and that’s why our Hospitality Strategy is supporting them in recovering and becoming more resilient as they build back better from the pandemic.
“Pubs have been pivoting to new ways of doing business during the pandemic, so it’s great to see Uber Eats establish a new taskforce to support deliveries, which will help provide more choice for pubs and their customers alike.”
