about dishpatch

Dishpatch delivers the best restaurants to every home in the UK.

At Dishpatch, we believe the best chefs deserve the biggest tables: incredible food shouldn’t be confined to the lucky few that live in the city. We’re taking great food further and wider than anyone has gone before, by partnering with the most talented chefs and restaurants to deliver their restaurant meal kits nationwide.

Since we began in 2020, we’ve partnered with the likes of Angela Hartnett, Ottolenghi, Michel Roux Jr and St. JOHN to deliver over 150,000 meals across the country. We've raised >£10m from the World's leading venture investors including Andreessen Horowitz and LocalGlobe.

Our sights are set on building a category-creating brand that restaurants and diners truly love. In 2023, we’re continuing to rapidly increase the diverse range of chefs we partner with and meals we create to serve our growing community of diners.
