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.)
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.

In accordance with legislation, VAT is charged is charged at 20% on applicable goods and services regardless of where the customer is buying from.
Tax is charged at source, which is the United Kingdom.
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.
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.
In the event that you do not receive exactly what you ordered, you can make a claim against your delivery within 14 days from delivery date.
In the first instance, we will review your claim and check the stock levels in our system. If there is actually a discrepancy and we've got in stock the item(s) you're claiming to be missing from your order, we will assume that there was a mistake and your claim will be accepted.
You will be issued a Credit Note along with a discount code, which you can use in your future purchases.
In the event that our actual stock levels are exactly as our system reflects, which in turn doesn't support your claim, you will need to use a different procedure.
In this case, in order to process your claim, we will require electronic evidence of this, which will only be accepted in the form of a continuously recorded video from the moment you open the sealed parcels until you've checked every item in your delivery.
Please note that this video must not have any gaps, editions, cuts, or point towards a different objective at any point time during the check.
Please note that we will also need your packing slip to be checked against the items received, and if any items are missing, your video will have to prove unequivocally that there are items missing from your order.
The above electronic proof of missing items must be recorded on the day your delivery is received, while you are opening the sealed boxes.
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 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 working days. Because of that, we will add ice packs to ensure chilled items arrive safely 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 7 days before their best before date, if dates are unavoidably shorter we will try to notify you before dispatch, but we are not liable for any losses due to shorter shelf lives.
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 below the stock information where it says 'BBE Date: [DD/MM/YYYY]'.
If still in doubt, please contact us.
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.
Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive which can be found at: http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si2000/20002334.htm.
For all parcels the following conditions must be accepted.
For example, if you provide us with incorrect delivery details and the goods are lost, delivered to the wrong address or delayed we shall not be held liable for any costs.
We may replace goods at our discretion but the customer will be required to pay for the full postage.
We may be able to arrange a collection with a courier for less than it would cost you, please contact us to discuss this.
We would then usually refund the value of the goods less the cost of collection, which will ultimately save you some money.
Please note however, that this option is not offered on small items that would travel in first or second class post.
