South Woodford fast food fans can breathe a sigh of relief – Deliveroo has finally arrived.

The fast food delivery app has today announced (May 17) it is partnering up with 15 restaurants in the area, which can now send food straight to your door in just half an hour.

Among the South Woodford Deliveroo options are chains Pizza Express and Prezzo and independents like George’s Fish and Souvlaki Bar and Sushi Waribashi.

The launch will create 50 new jobs for potential Deliveroo riders in the area, who work between midday and 11pm.

General manager Caroline Hazlehurst said: “We’re extremely excited to be launching in South Woodford and we’re looking forward to bringing some of the town’s delicious dishes straight from the hands of local chefs to customers’ doors.

“Locals can order from the fantastic variety of restaurants in the area, whatever they want, whenever they want, all from the comfort of their own home, office desk or wherever else hunger strikes.”

South Woodford now offers the second highest number of Deliveroo options in Redbridge and Waltham Forest, only beaten by Walthamstow with 16 restaurant choices.

Leytonstone is close behind with 12, followed by Leyton on eight. But despite Wanstead’s famous foodie scene only four restaurants are signed up for the app there.
