Using the online ordering service

You can use our website to place an order by selecting the product you wish to buy and adding it to your basket. Items you do not require can be removed from your basket at any time. Promotional prices are subject to availability. All prices quoted on our website are in UK pounds and include Value Added Tax (if applicable) at the current rate. When you place an order with us, you are agreeing to purchase goods from us. In the event that the goods are no longer available at the time of packing, or that we have made a pricing mistake, we will advise you of this, offer alternatives, offer to remove them from you order and or reduce the total. Images of products on this website are for illustrative purposes only. Due to the natural origin and production of most of our products they will vary from the image/s shown on the website and indeed from each other. They will not include any of the pictured accessories, unless stated in the specification of the goods. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on this website. However, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the actual product. Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, all information provided is approximate and is provided in good faith. This contract is covered by English law. By placing an order with us, you agree to and accept these terms, as well as our privacy policy and the terms of website use. 

Local Delivery

We deliver to the postcodes listed here on Tuesdays only. Deliveries to SP and PO postcodes are made on the first Tuesday of every month. We require delivery orders to be submitted by Sunday 3pm for a Tuesday delivery. Orders received after this date will default to the following Tuesday or the following month, depending on the postcode. Free delivery is given when the order value exceeds £50, otherwise the charge is £5. Postcodes further afield (SP and PO) are automatically charged with a £5 delivery fee, regardless of order value. If a product is later found to be unavailable which was previously ordered, alternatives will be offered which you are free to accept or refuse. We will honour free deliveries for SO and the named BH postcodes even if the unavailability of a product takes the order value under £50. Unavailable products are able to be placed on a back order for free delivery the following week.  Fees are detailed here. 

When we have packed your order, we will call you on the number provided to take payment over the telephone. If you are unavailable, we will leave a message if we can, followed by an email on the email address provided requiring you to call us to make payment. All delivery orders require payment before delivery by Monday 5.30pm for a Tuesday delivery. Unpaid deliveries will default to the following week. Deliveries are made in polyboxes so the contents stay frozen for many hours. We are unable to give time slots for your delivery. If you would like to cancel your order, please reply to your order confirmation email by Monday 5.30pm. We are unable to accept cancellations by telephone. 

We will not accept responsibility for loss, damage, or spoiling of goods if you instruct us to leave your order in a designated, safe place.  We strongly recommend somewhere cool and shaded even with insulated boxes, but this is done entirely at your own risk. Disposal of packing materials is your responsibility. However, we can and like to re-use the polystyrene boxes so please, if you can, keep these until we deliver again and we will collect them. We also can accept empty and washed polypropylene food tubs which are then sent away for specialist recycling. Deliveries are made on the condition that there is reasonable access for the safe and prompt delivery of the goods. You must tell us about any special delivery requirements or conditions when you place your order. Sometimes, for reasons beyond our control we may be prevented from delivering your goods as planned. These might include things such as accidents, breakdowns, fire, flood, storm, severe weather, natural disasters, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage or the default of our suppliers. We will try to put things right as soon as possible.

Click and Collect

When you order a Click & Collect order, your order will be packed in polystyrene boxes. Disposal of packing materials is your responsibility. However, we can and like to re-use the polystyrene boxes so please, if you can, return these to the store when you collect again. We also can accept empty and washed polypropylene food tubs which are then sent away for specialist recycling. Please check the goods when you return home. Any goods found to be missing or damaged should be notified to the store as soon as possible. Sometimes, for reasons beyond our control we may be prevented from having your collection ready in the store. These might include things such as accidents, breakdowns, fire, flood, storm, severe weather, natural disasters, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage or the default of our suppliers. We will try to put things right as soon as possible.

Returns

Due to the nature of the food, we are unable to accept returns unless there is a fault with the food. This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights – for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Faulty Goods

If there is a problem with the goods, please notify us by email or in writing providing details of the problem or bring the item to us in the shop.  It's helpful if you can provide us with a digital photograph of the problem as this normally saves you having to return the goods for inspection. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights. If an exchange is necessary, this will be arranged without unreasonable delay and without charge. Replacement goods will not be dispatched until the original goods have been received at our warehouse and checked. The cost of returning goods to us is your responsibility, however on inspection we will refund your reasonable postage costs, providing that the goods are found to be faulty. If the goods are not faulty, we will return them to you, however you will be required to cover our reasonable postage costs. Within this time scale we will replace defective goods free of charge, at our discretion, providing that you have returned to us any faulty goods upon request. If an item is no longer available we will contact you to offer an alternative. However our liability will be to replace the faulty goods only and we are unable to guarantee an exact match. In this instance you will have the option of a refund. Where we replace faulty goods you are responsible for their disposal if they have not previously been returned to us.

Liability

The products sold on this website comply with all relevant UK legislation. We cannot warrant or represent that they comply with any legal requirement outside the UK. We do not accept liability for any result of feeding or administering products we sell. You are responsible for how you use our products.
