In dark times there's nothing like a hot drink and a sweet treat to perk you up a bit.

And quintessentially British brand Marks & Spencer has long been many mums' favourite spot for picking up the most delicious comfort food and tuck-shop style indulgences (crumpet and a chocolate mini roll anyone?).

However only a very select few areas in Dubai have been able to benefit from the brand's home delivery food service - which was first launched in the UAE at the end of 2019 - until now.

 Teaming up with UAE grocery delivery service el Grocer, Marks & Spencer has now expanded its delivery remit to enable more customers across Dubai to order its premium range of groceries direct to their doors in a matter of hours.

The free  app is available on Android and Apple app stores and offers 850 items from the M&S food range, including fresh bakery items, kitchen cupboard staples, indulgent movie-night snacks and a wide range of confectionery and chocolate, 

Food items are available for same-day delivery on orders placed between 9am and 9pm on el Grocer. The home delivery service is Dh7 and takes from one to two hours for an order to arrive straight to your door.   

Home delivery of Marks and Spencer food via the el Grocer app is now available to those living in:
