Terms & Conditions

Christmas Ordering & Delivery 2017:

Please note: Unfortunately we have no more delivery slots available and are unable to take any more orders for a pre-Chistmas delivery.

UK Mainland Delivery Charges (Zone 1):

Our standard delivery charges are worked out on your order value:

  • FREE for orders £90.00 and above (to a single address)
  • £7.95 for orders below £89.99 (to a single address)

For an additional £3.00 (on top of standard charges), Morning Delivery (pre-12.00) can be selected at Checkout.

Please call or email us for local delivery rates and for collection in person.

Highlands & Islands (Zone 2):

For an additional £9.00 (on top of standard charges) we are able to deliver to the Scottish Highlands (Mainland only), including Argyll & Bute, parts of Perthshire (PH15-50), parts of Aberdeenshire (AB37-38 & AB41-56) & Moray, Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight & Isle of Man. You will be able to select this option at checkout.

Please note: despite a 24hr courier service being used, it may take 2-3 working days for your order to reach a Zone 2 destination, due to logistics. Therefore, unfortunately we can not guarantee a specified delivery date. Please note that by selecting this option you are agreeing to this.

We are currently unable to deliver to destinations outside of those listed in Zones 1 & 2.

Delivery Address:

**Please ensure that either yourself or your recipient is able to accept the order, or that specific instructions are left for the courier to leave the parcel in a safe place.**

On the 'checkout page' there is a box where you can add specific delivery instructions (such as leave with neighbour at 17, in porch etc), which we will pass onto the courier, who at their discretion, will leave in a safe place.

Please note: we cannot be held responsible for parcels, which are undelivered or mis-routed due to incomplete/incorrect addresses given by the customer, due to customer/recipient not being available to receive shipment or due to parcel going missing once left in a 'safe' place.

Delivery Day:

Your goods will be delivered via our chosen courier, usually APC Overnight.

At checkout you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. If for any reason, we are unable to deliver on that day, we will be in contact with you to arrange another suitable day.

We will advise you via email once your order has been dispatched.

If you have not received your parcel within 48hours of receiving the email, then please contact us immediately on: 01394 270609.

Overseas Customers:

Unfortunately due to the perishable nature of our food, cost and logistics, we are currently unable to deliver to overseas destinations or to those outside of Zones 1 and 2.

Personal Message:

If you would like us to include a personal message with your order (at no extra charge) then please write it as you would like it to be seen, in the Gift Message box at checkout.


Your goods will be delivered in insulated packaging, containing ice packs, to ensure products remain cool for at least 24hours. However, we can not be held responsible for deterioration of goods resulting from unsuccessful delivery due to customer error (e.g. person not available to receive shipment, incorrect address given).


To ensure your fresh food products remain in optimum condition, we strongly advise that once you have received them, you immediately unpack them and place them in the fridge. Please follow the instructions on the individual products, regarding 'use-by' and 'best before' dates, and storage.
