Takeaway Restaurants Open on Christmas Day

The post has been updated to show restaurants open on Christmas Day 2015.

As mentioned in our guide to interesting alternative Christmas Dinners on hungryhouse, the Christmas traditions around the UK are constantly evolving with a new trend emerging: ordering takeaway on Christmas Day.

Maybe you had your turkey on Christmas Eve, or the kids are out of town, or Mum and Dad have gone to visit old friends. Either way, if you find yourself not particularly interested in cooking for half the day and spending the other half cleaning up afterwards, you’re not alone. In 2012 we opened the hungryhouse site for the first time on Christmas Day after noticing a large volume of people looking for takeaway delivery on Christmas Day in previous years. Even though all our restaurants were offline, there was plenty of people looking for a tasty pizza or Indian feast to celebrate the festive period.

We therefore opened the site for business on Christmas Day for the first time last year, and we ended up seeing about 60% of orders we would normally get on an average weekday, which is pretty amazing! It turns out that lots of people are looking for online takeaway to treat themselves on Christmas Day.

Chinese food on Christmas Day


So are you looking for a delicious Chinese takeaway open on Christmas Day? Or perhaps a good old fashion pizza delivery that’s open on the 25th? Well join the many people out there who want to relax this Christmas (and who don’t find preparing, cooking and cleaning to be that relaxing) and would love nothing more than a tasty takeaway delivered to their door this Christmas. And if you don’t see your city or suburb here, do not fear. This is only a sprinkling of the takeaway restaurants open and delivering tasty food on Christmas Day.

If you’re looking for takeaway restaurants open on Christmas Day, simply enter your postcode at hungryhouse.co.uk and see which restaurants in your area are open. As about 2/3 of our restaurants will be “offline” on Christmas Day, just look for the yellow button with ‘VIEW MENU’ – this indicates the restaurant is online.
