Date night with Deliveroo...

Date nights when you have children take on many different forms. There's the traditional night out as a couple where a babysitter's at home with the kids (can be expensive), there's the family date where the kids come too (can be stressful) and then there's the home made date night, where the kids are upstairs in bed, which is where Deliveroo can help! 

Step 1: Pick a restaurant based on a search using your postcode (we chose Strada).
Step 2: Browse the menu (either on the website, or the free app).
Step 3: Place an order (you will get an email to let you know that your order has been accepted).
Step 5: Enjoy.

The website is easy to navigate and can store your address and payment details for next time you decide not to cook! I've seen the Deliveroo bikes out all over town and always wonder how they got the food to you without falling off or the food getting cold but somehow they did (they were quick too) and we got to munch on a restaurant quality Italian feast in the comfort of our own home! As well as the high standard of food, the lack of washing up is also a winner and means you have time to sit down and enjoy a film together plus the fact that most of the packaging is recyclable is also a bonus.

Delivery is more expensive than a traditional takeaway but the range of options more than makes up for that and you can also sign up for marketing emails which let you know about carefully selected special offers and deals. You can also pre-order your food to arrive after the kids bedtime if you're feeling particularly organised!

A huge thumbs up for the home made date night, no need to spend a fortune on babysitters, no need to dress up for the occasion (although it's nice to anyway) and no expensive taxi home when you can't decide whose turn it is to be designated driver!
