Alcohol Delivery On-Demand
Find Local Late Night Booze Delivery Services in England & Wales
Since the introduction of 24 hour drinking in 2005, all night booze delivery services have opened for business all over England and Wales, offering on-demand alcohol delivery throughout the night. Simply order booze online and it will be delivered to your home a short time later – usually within the hour but often even faster, with some delivery services in large cities like London & Manchester offering almost instant alcohol delivery. It’s as easy as ordering a takeaway online – there’s no need to even pick up the phone. There are a growing number of late night booze delivery companies operating in the UK and highly populated areas are generally served by more than one alcohol delivery service. Cigarettes, tobacco, snacks and other extras are also commonly available to order for fast delivery.
When it comes to finding nearby booze delivery services that offer not just same-day delivery, but instant on-demand delivery, it can be a difficult task. There are no nationwide providers whatsoever but there are a few online ordering portals that cover multiple areas across the UK, which we will run through below (they are in fact portals specialising in takeaway fast food but also offer drink delivery).
Deliveroo have expanded rapidly over the last couple of years and now deliver to towns and cities all over the UK. Alcohol delivery through Deliveroo is usually operational late morning, afternoon and evenings, so is a sound choice for your daytime and evening delivery needs.
Delivery firms on Hungry House are more likely to open late at night, into the early hours of the following morning and in some cases, throughout the entire night. Hungry House now cover more areas than ever before, so it’s always worth checking their website to see if they’ve got a delivery service delivering to your neck of the woods.
Some time ago we used to recommend Just Eat alcohol delivery but unfortunately, several years ago they took the decision to remove drinks delivery services from their online ordering platform. Now that Just Eat are buying Hungry House, that could be set to change, so watch this space.
Most alcohol delivery companies don’t open 24 hours a day because there isn’t much demand for booze at say, 9am on a Tuesday morning, however, many are open all night (after hours) as night-time is the time of day when the majority of customers want to order alcohol for home delivery, due to the local supermarket or convenience store usually being closed at such a time. Some delivery companies are only open during the daytime, evenings or at weekends (Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night if the following day is a bank holiday Monday) but there are loads of wine & beer delivery services that open late at night and into the early hours of the morning, 7 days a week (some are even open on Christmas day).
Just some of the areas where drinks delivery services operate: London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire, Bristol, Birmingham, Greater Manchester, Blackpool, Lancashire, Preston, Lancashire, Leeds, West Yorkshire, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Luton, Bedfordshire, Slough, Berkshire, Swindon, Wiltshire and Liverpool, Merseyside.
So next time you need booze after hours and can’t get down to a shop with a 24 hour licence, don’t despair, order alcohol online for delivery direct to your door in an instant. 24 hour alcohol delivery services are available in England and Wales but there are, unfortunately, none in Scotland due to Scottish licensing laws which prevent alcohol being sold by retail premises between 10pm at night and 10am the next morning, Monday-Sunday.
If you don’t have a 24 hour shop that sells alcohol all night within walking distance of your current location, alcohol delivery on-demand is what you need, but if there isn’t a company delivering to your area yet, whatever you do, don’t drink and drive! As a last resort, you could always use a taxi/minicab service to fetch booze from your nearest 24 hour off licence.
Some delivery services only stock a limited range of alcoholic beverages but most offer a wide menu of beers, wines, spirits, champagne, cider, alcopops and also soft drinks and mixers, tobacco/cigarettes, snacks and takeaway food. Payment can usually be made online by credit/debit card or with cash on delivery. Some booze delivery companies also accept card payments on your doorstep.
Due to UK alcohol licensing laws, drink delivery services, just like any other licensed premises, may required you to show ID to verify you are aged over 18. If your chosen alcohol delivery service partakes in the Challenge 21 or Challenge 25 schemes, proof of age will be requested at time of delivery if you look under 21/25 years old.
If there isn’t an all night alcohol delivery service operating in your local area, the other option is to visit your local 24 hour shop with all-night alcohol licence to buy booze at any time of night.
