Mitchells & Butlers (M&B) has started a trial with Just Eat, the online delivery platform, across a number of its leading brands, MCA has learnt.

The company, which had previously been working with Deliveroo across its All Bar One and Browns brands, has now started working with Just Eat on a handful of sites under the former brand and through a select number of Harvester and Toby Carvery sites.

In November, chief executive Phil Urban said that after a successful trial with Deliveroo across 25 All Bar One and Browns sites, food delivery was being rolled out across brands, in different locations and with different third party providers.

He said ultimately he believed the model could apply to around a quarter of the estate.
