  • Goods are delivered by carrier before 4pm on the requested day of delivery. We prefer that someone is available to sign for the delivery, but if this is not possible please leave alternative instructions for leaving goods when you place your order. The delivery driver will be instructed to leave your goods in a reasonably secure place and will not take the box back to the depot. The delivery will be deemed to have been made when the consignee accepts the delivery in person or the delivery driver leaves the goods.
  • All perishable goods are dispatched in insulated boxes with ice packs to ensure the goods reach you in excellent condition for up to 48 hours.

Cancellations and Amendments

Cancellation or amendment of an order or product can only be accepted if we have received notification 4 days prior to the delivery day.

We are unable to accept liability for a late or failed delivery if the address is incorrect or incomplete. We do not accept liability for late delivery as dates are an estimate only and given in good faith, and deliveries are subject to prevailing weather and traffic conditions.

Nothing in these conditions will affect your statutory rights.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the pork pie wedding cake you delivered for our wedding on Dec 21st. It looked and tasted delicious and so many people commented on how good it tasted. We had it along side the wedding cake instead of canapés and it went down a treat, especially with the chutneys. All the different layers tasted delicious. Thank you so much.
