We’ve all been there. You get home late, the local chippy has shut up shop for the night, and you’re starving. In London, UberEats already has the hangover cure covered with the addition of breakfast deliveries earlier this year. Now, the service wants to cash in on late-night munchies in the capital too. As of today, UberEats has extended its London opening hours from 11PM to 2AM, with over 150 partner “restaurants” able to meet your midnight snack requirements — calling them restaurants might be a bit of a stretch, because we’re talking Papa Johns, Roosters PiriPiri and similar establishments that serve ravenous dinner-skippers already.
It’s not like Londoners have been going to bed hungry before now. Deliveroo still calls it a night at 11PM, but Hungryhouse and Just Eat have plenty of eateries on their books that’ll send a midnight moped ’round to wake the neighbours. There’s nothing wrong with more choice, mind, and it means you can now schedule a late-night grub delivery to coincide with the arrival of your post-pub Uber home.
