Top 10 Food Mobile Apps in the UK

The top apps you should find on a foodie’s phone

Getting hold of food, whether it’s cooking it yourself, ordering, or finding the perfect place to dine out, can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. But luckily for us, there are plenty of phone and tablet apps at our disposal to help us chow down on a good quality meal.

If you’re looking for help with your lunch or dinner plans, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’re taking a look at the top 10 UK food apps that you can find on the Apple app store and the Google play store.

Food delivery apps

Looking for delivery? Sit back and relax. We’ve got you covered.

Uber Eats

Top 10 Food Mobile Apps in the UK

Being one of the most popular delivery services in the UK, you’ve probably already heard of Uber Eats. This fast-running mobile app offers a number of options for both delivery and pick-up. If you like to be in the habit of keeping an eye on your food, the service features a tracking system for most of its partnered restaurants, where you can track your food while being cooked and where it is when it’s on its way to your house.

If you’re looking for a good bargain, then sign up for an Uber Eats account. You’ll find a number of deals and discount codes emailed your way quite frequently.


A top competitor for Uber Eats, Deliveroo is another one of Britain’s most popular food delivery services. Deliveroo offers a fast and reliable service that most companies can’t beat. If you can’t find the restaurant of your choice on Uber Eats, you’ll likely be able to find it on Deliveroo instead.

Just Eat

Just Eat is the classic UK food delivery service that puts together all of your favourite local takeaways and restaurants. You’ll find a wider variety of restaurants on Just Eat than anywhere else. If you’re looking to support local businesses or try something new (and possibly a bit cheaper), Just Eat is the place to look.


Foodhub might not be quite as well known as the previous delivery apps on this list, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t any better.

Foodhub is a UK delivery service that offers cheaper deals on the same food you can get from other services such as Just Eat. It might not have as many options to choose from, but the fact that Foodhub doesn’t charge commissions to restaurants means that they can offer cheaper deals for the same food you can get anywhere else.

Restaurant finding apps

If you’re looking for the best restaurants local and across the nation, look no further than on these three apps.


Opentable is the goto app if you’re looking for a variety of different restaurant bookings. With over 50,000 restaurants in its database, you can be sure something there will suit your fancy. The app now also lets you know if any of your favourite options has a delivery service, meaning if you’re not in the mood to travel for your food, you can always have it delivered to your house instead.

Luxury Restaurant Guide

Looking for something a bit more special? Luxury Restaurant Guide is your key to finding the top cuisine in the UK. Discover the best places to eat, viewing Michelin star restaurants, AA Rosettes and more.

For a premium fee, you can even apply for club membership, accessing special offers, privilege access, dinner bonuses and savings for your meal. If you’re into fine dining, Luxury Restaurant Guide is the best place to be.


Attention vegans and vegetarians! HappyCow is a plant-based restaurant finding machine!

This app specialises in locating and helping you book reservations at vegan restaurants near you. The app easily tells you whether or not a restaurant is entirely vegan, has vegetarian options or also sells meat on the side, so you can be certain of what you’re getting into.

With options to find restaurants all over the UK (and the world), there’s no other plant-based restaurant app you need.

Download and play for free – see what it can do and how much time (and money) it will save you and your business – or even if you just shoot food pics for fun!
