Direct Debit
We use GoCardless as our secure direct debit payment system.

Saving your Direct Debit details
If you wish to save your bank details securely and avoid filling in the form every time you order, please make sure to tick the box ‘save to account’, if you want to save your details and save time in your following orders.
IMPORTANT: From your second order, select the bullet with your account details in the Direct Debit section. 
(You need to pay attention to this because the system ticks ‘use new payment method’, by default.)

Credit and Debit Card
We use Stripe as our secure card payment gateway. 
To pay by Card, simply follow the instructions that appear at the checkout stage.

Bank Transfer
If you wish to pay by bank transfer, please follow the instructions after you have completed your purchase.

Delivery Charges
For all orders between £50 (minimum order value) and £98.99, delivery charge is £12.50 + VAT.
For all orders worth £99 or more, delivery is always free of charge.

Our delivery system
Customers based in London and surrounding areas (inside M25)
Orders that have been paid for before 4pm Monday to Thursday (excluding bank holidays), will be delivered the following working day (Tuesday to Friday). If you order at different days/times, we will prepare and/or deliver your order the following available day.

Customers based in Mainland UK (outide M25)
Orders that have been paid for before 11am Monday to Thursday (excluding bank holidays), will be dispatched on the same day. If you order at different days/times, we will prepare and dispatch your order the following working day. Please note that we dispatch chilled items exclusively on working Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Receiving your delivery
By ordering chilled items you agree to be in to receive them on the day of delivery.
If you know you are unlikely to be in at the time of delivery, you may provide an alternative delivery address at the checkout stage, which allows customers to receive orders at different addresses.

Orders that arrive late or are returned to us as a result of incorrect delivery details or no one being present at the address at the time of delivery will not receive a refund for goods that as a result then become unsuitable for consumption.

Orders returned to us will not receive a refund for postage (charge will be calculated based on your order's weight) and should you still require the order, postage will be charged again.

Some couriers will leave parcels without signatures but please assume in all cases, that a signature is required.

Chilled Goods
The following information is very important.
Chilled goods cannot be returned for resale and are not refundable, if you order them you must be in to receive them and you must provide an address where they can be received safely.

Chilled goods are either delivered by our temperature controlled vans (in London and surrounding areas inside the M25) and sent via overnight courier service for delivery on the following day.
In some areas of the UK, particularly in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isles, next day deliveries are not possible and will take 2, occasionally 3, working days. This is why we do not dispatch chilled items to those areas.
You are welcome to contact us to confirm if you are unsure that this will affect you. 

If chilled goods are delayed in transit, you must accept the parcel and inspect the goods.
We will refund you or replace any goods that are damaged, however some chilled goods are not susceptible to damage in such short delays and we will not refund for those items as we are certain they are safe and fit for use.

Chilled items are normally dispatched with no less than 10 days before their best before date, if dates are unavoidably shorter we will try to notify you before dispatch.
We will endeavour to ensure such items arrive to you with at least 7 days before their best before date, excluding unforeseen delays as described above.

By ordering chilled items you are accepting goods with at least 7 days' remaining shelf life. If you wish to check best before dates before purchasing please check the product page of the product you are interested in and check the tab 'Additional Information' next to the Description of the item. If still in doubt, please
contact us.

Orders that are not paid for in the act of placing them online will be held but not processed until payment is made. It does not reserve the goods you would like, so prompt payment is essential. If you do not contact us within 2 days we may cancel the order and make the items available to other customers again.
Goods will be dispatched once full payment is received so please ensure you send the correct total amount.

Our Service
You agree that the ‘Service’ we provide begins once the order is received by us and paid for. Your order is prepared, picked, packed and dispatched all before you receive it. The ‘Service’ as defined in this sense begins from the time we commence this work, not when the parcel is dispatched, nor when it is received.

Stock levels
Although stock levels are regularly checked, the quantities on the site are just an indication but may on occasions not reflect actual levels due to the nature of some items which are -for example- more perishable.

How we use your details
You agree that we may use your full contact details in order to assist with delivery, including your telephone and/or mobile number on the delivery address label. 

Deadline to fulfill and deliver your order
You agree that in line with UK legislation we have a maximum of 30 days in which to fulfil your order. However, we will endeavour to do it as quickly as possible. 
Additionally, in the rare event that delivery may be delayed due to the actions or errors of a delivery company that you will allow us reasonable opportunity to intervene and ensure the goods are delivered to you.
Delivery schedules are generally reliable but this cannot be guaranteed. 
Difficulties in the postal system, especially in the events of strikes or adverse weather are beyond our control, therefore late delivery is not reason alone for a refund.
We monitor all of our orders to make sure they arrive to you on time. However, if you believe your order may be late, please do not hesitate to contact us
