The driver can be heard shouting “are you kidding me?” when he catches sight of the steep steps.
He then leaves the ASDA shopping away from the door – as is contactless delivery protocol for anyone considered high risk of coronavirus.
Seagulls later swooped in and helped themselves to the groceries.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “ASDA turned up early and left the shopping on the bottom of the step.
“The delivery man was very frustrated by how many steps there were to the house and angrily dumped the food.
“We weren’t told the delivery was made.
“I’m pregnant, self-isolating due to COVID-19, and entirely dependent on grocery deliveries.
“As the food was left a huge flock of seagulls ate all the food – omitted half the order, the rest eaten or covered in bird faeces.
“No food this week. No callback. No refund. No redelivery. Totally let down by ASDA.”
An ASDA spokesperson said: “We know that this delivery fell far short of our high standards and would like to apologise again.
“We have refunded the order and offered them a gesture of goodwill for the inconvenience caused.”
The footage, from her Bristol home, was captured on May 30.
Supermarkets have remained open throughout lockdown as they were deemed essential.
But as the UK’s coronavirus death toll begins to slow, the Government has announced new rules for Brits in lockdown.
Restrictions continue to be eased as dentists, car showrooms and outdoor markets are allowed to reopen.
