The Big Night way

From Michelin-approved Italian to the best local ocakbasi, we carefully curate our selection of independent restaurant partners, meaning that you can rest assured that anything you order via Big Night will be of the highest quality… something you can never quite be sure of when you take a gamble with the big delivery platforms, which have next-to-no vetting processes and unreliable reviews.

Our network of London restaurants celebrates artistry, community and passion, celebrating each of their unique concepts and stories. From the team in our (virtual) office to the delivery drivers on the street, we treat everyone with the dignity they deserve.

Our story

Big Night was created in the midst of the pandemic, when London restaurateur Charlie Mellor found there was no delivery platform that gave his businesses or his customers a satisfactory experience. Together with friend Pavel Baskakov, they built Big Night to help restaurants recreate the level of service and quality they usually provide to their guests at home, in a way that didn’t undercut them.

It has always been Big Night’s mission to go up against the big dogs of food delivery and show them that there is a better way to do things, placing quality, passion, experience, and fairness back at the forefront where they belong. Ordering a meal through Big Night is the closest you’ll get to a restaurant-quality dining experience in the comfort of your own home, and you’ll help to support independent businesses in the process.
