Terms & Conditions of use

Terms and Conditions

By placing an order on this site you are agreeing to these terms and conditions. Please read them carefully. Under English law, we may not enter into a contract with any person under 18 years of age. By placing an order you declare that you are at least 18 years old.

  • General. These terms and conditions are governed by the Laws of England and Scotland. If any provision of these conditions is held by a competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of the other provisions shall not be affected.

  • Return of non-perishable items. If you wish to return a non-perishable item for any reason other than it not being of merchantable quality (faulty etc), you may do so at your own expense. We will refund the cost of the item less a handling charge of 5 per cent, as long as the item is returned to us in the same condition as was dispatched to you.

  • Delivery. Orders for frozen food are normally delivered within 2 days, they are packed in polystyrene boxes that contain frozen ice packs and polystyrene chippings to ensure the product reaches you frozen. During December deliveries may vary slightly. Deliveries which are not signed for are left "at your risk", if the driver can find a reasonably secure place to leave them. If we anticipate any difficulties concerning the delivery date, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to arrange a mutually acceptable alternative.

  • Cancellation of orders. You may cancel your order at any time up to the closing time for acceptance of orders. We will refund any payment you have made, but reserve the right to make a charge of £4 to cover the costs incurred by us in handling your payment/credit.

  • Payment. For web orders, we will debit your credit/charge card at the time of placing the order. If you wish to place your order in advance, and do not wish to have your card charged until the order is ready for despatch, please place your order by phone, AND TELL US THAT YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR CARD CHARGING STRAIGHT AWAY. Should your order include an item which is out of stock on the despatch date, we will offer you a higher valued item or the choice of a refund or a credit note.  If you are paying by cheque we allow five days for the cheque to clear before processing and dispatching the order.

  • Customer support. You may call our customer helpline on 01472 342080 at any time of the day. If the line is not attended, please leave a message.
