My opinion
In my opinion it drastically depends on the city you work in. I went from earning 10 - 20 pounds an hour to 3 pounds an hour because I moved to a smaller city. Big cities with good cycle access are better for earning better money.

It would be great if, ... You could actually get enough shifts
This is a difficult review to write as in many ways the company is better than its main rival ubereats. When logged on, you (generally) get a steady stream of jobs plus the rate per drop is better and the distances are more manageable. Unfortunately though, the downside is that it is virtually impossible to book the shifts. Deliveroo operate a two stage booking system. Shifts are released on Mondays. People with priority access book at 11am and everyone else gets left untill 3pm, by which time everything is gone. Your only option at this point is to try and pick up cancellations. Deliveroo say you gain access to 11am by maximising your "statistics", which comprise, your % of late cancellations, your attendance rate and your super peak participation (number of bookings during the busiest periods). This is untrue, as I have maximised all these statistics and am still stuck at 3pm struggling to get shifts and having to travel to different areas trying to get bits and pieces here and there.

As I say, this would be an ok job if you could find a reliable and fair way of getting shifts, but as it is, it is a struggle and really stressful financially.
Pros
Reasonable average rate per hour (when you have a shift), manageable distances.
Cons
Extreme difficulty getting shifts.

when it is busy it's a great job
when there are enough orders to go around it feels brilliant being outside doing exercise while getting paid about £10 pound an hour.
All too often though you are hanging around in the cold waiting for orders or for me last month not being able to make enough to live off. Its mentally exhausting to not know whether you will be earning enough or not
Pros
being outside
Cons
having absolutely no control of how much you earn

Flexible
Good job, very flexible can choose your own hours.
Salary is good wether it be hourly or per drop and the kit provided is of a high quality.

Would recommend to students and part time work

Does not have the flexibility of Uber EATS but still has the insecurity
Working for Deliveroo you are expected to work the shifts you are given or you will be dismissed. You therefore don't have the flexibility you have with Uber EATS. However, you still get no sick pay or other employee benefits because you are legally not an employee.

Good temporary job
Working as a bicycle courier is an enjoyable and easy temporary career but is unsustainable in the long term. I personally really enjoy cycling and cycle most days regardless of my job at Deliveroo, and for this reason the job is an enjoyable experience for me. However, working for Deliveroo is not a good way of generating income due to their insistence on paying minimum wage to riders/drivers by claiming that they are self-employed. Despite this, it is possible to earn a decent amount of money if you are committed and enjoy cycling hard around the city.
Pros
Good tips
Cons
Unsustainable in the long term
