Steak delivery - where's best?

DP has a milestone birthday next weekend. We should have been going away but obviously that's off.

The plan was he'd grab steaks for a special dinner however he's now isolating for the next week and a half 🙈

I'm working full time and juggling getting dc to school etc around his isolation and I don't drive so no chance of nipping to the shops.

I've just seen an advert for Donald Russel - are they any good? Any other recommendations? I really want to make him a gorgeous dinner

Their meat is beautiful, if rather expensive. I've ordered my Christmas turkey and beef from them. And they've got some offers on steaks at the moment.

Thank you @sueelleker I'm hoping they csn deliver in time if I order today.

Donald Russell is FANTASTIC. Definitely buy from there.

The best steak we've ever had and they have some great deals (e.g. I've just ordered some flat iron steaks for £3.75 each and free delivery over £40).

It's fantastically packaged with freezing cold packs to keep it fresh.

Do it!!

No recommendations but I had steak last night and made truffle and parmasan chips which were unreal! Truffle oil from amazon and has truffle shavings- £8 for 100ml!

@gwilt what's a flat iron steak?

A delicious and less commonly eaten steak which is super tasty and tender. You can read more at

@ifiwasascent I'll look, thank you!

Thinking about ordering the Steak night for 2 pack and maybe some extra bits to avoid delivery charges!

I'm not usually so spendy but he's turning 50, we're in England so can't even go out for a drink never mind away to a hotel as planned. We were meant to get married this year too and that was cancelled. I just want to do something nice for him.

Hawksmoor are doing a meal that you can get delivered. Looks amazing and their steaks in the restaurant are great.

We’ve had Donald Russell a few times over lockdown, v nice. Had a great steak last night and stew in the oven for tonight...

Does anyone have a referral code for Donald R. My MIL uses them regularly so I can vouch for the quality.

I was going to suggest Hawksmoor at home. It is amazing.

@BridecillaBridecilla yes for a one off i dont blame you and a Good meal out would be around the same price the food does look fabulous, enjoy

Cote also do meat and meal delivery which is very nice quality, we had some yummy steaks from them. Although for a 50th the Hawksmoor delivery looks fab, and comes with cocktails and wine too!

Bridecilla Sun 08-Nov-20 17:26:39

Will have a look at Hawksmoor once dp puts ds to bed.

Assuming they deliver - don't think we're near one!

The curries from Donald Russell were nice too. I added a few to make it worth while. It is pricey.

NastyBlouse Sun 08-Nov-20 17:31:44

Donald Russell gets good reviews, I’ve never tried them though.

I use Greendale, Pipers Farm or Farmison for online meat deliveries. All vg and good for animal welfare etc.

mynameiscalypso Sun 08-Nov-20 17:34:17

I've used the ethical butcher a lot over the last 6 months and really rate them and everything we've had from there.

gobbynorthernbird Sun 08-Nov-20 17:35:52

@Bridecilla they do nationwide delivery, assuming you're in England.
