Quick Check is our scan as you shop service. Using a handheld scanner, you scan each item as you take it from the shelves and pack as you go. When you have finished shopping, all that is left to do is pay at the Quick Check till, without having to unpack and re-pack your shopping. If paying using a debit, credit or account card you can save even more time by using Quick Pay. Quick Check is available in a number of branches. We will also supply special reusable bags to our partnership cardholders and Waitrose and John Lewis account card cardholders.
Our team of Masters of Wine have travelled the globe in search of the very best wines for you to enjoy. We have called this collection of fine wines our Inner Cellar. The classic areas of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne are well represented, but we have not forgotten the modern classics, nor the more unusual wines and spirits. 'Inner Cellar' does not have to mean expensive - there are some great discoveries to be made at around £25-30. An Inner Cellar wine list is available detailing all the wines together with tasting notes. This is available in branch or by telephoning Waitrose Customer Services on 0800 188884.

Rotisserie-cooked chickens are available in several sizes, portions and flavours. The range includes standard and large chickens, both available in halves and quarters. Try the garlic, BBQ or lemon flavoured chickens.
Roast duck, corn-fed rotisserie chickens, BBQ spare ribs and Cumberland sausage are available in some branches; please ask at the Rotisserie Counter.
On the meat counter, there are prime cuts of free range pork, Aberdeen Angus beef and Farmhouse lamb, as well as specialities such as rack of lamb.
Aberdeen Angus beef has been available from the Waitrose meat counter for more than 10 years and was chosen because it is a breed that is native to the UK. It is known for the marbling that appears in the meat. This marbling enables the meat to retain a higher level of succulent flavour and tenderness.
