  5. Delivering great food, whatever the weather

    Our dedicated drivers have been battling the unseasonable weather conditions all over the country to get your Oakhouse meals and desserts out to you this week.  We’ve seen heavy snow in lots of places, from Croydon to East Anglia, and drivers like Rob from our North West branch have been facing motorways at a standstill and difficult driving conditions. Despite the disruption, our drivers are working hard to get to everyone and to make sure that most of our deliveries are made as close to our usual times as possible. If we’re running behind with deliveries we’ll do our best to keep everyone informed about what is happening. If you’d like some more information about deliveries in your area, you can find and contact your local branch here.

  9. Why Is It Important To Eat Breakfast?

    Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. However, it’s the meal we are most likely to skip... Breakfast breaks your overnight fast.
