The prices payable are as set out in our website, or our published gift guide which is current at the date that your order is accepted. The prices payable for telephone order goods are as quoted to you when you place your order or, if no prices are quoted, the prices set out in the edition of our gift guide, which is current at the date that your order is accepted.

For orders made from the UK or the European Union, most of our food products are VAT Free. However some items may be subject to VAT at the prevailing rate (which at the time that these terms and conditions are written is 20%) and this is added to the total price.
Right for You to Cancel Your Order
If you order perishable food products the Distance Selling Regulations do not apply and you cannot cancel your contract with us for the goods. If you order goods other than perishable food products, you may cancel your contract with us for the goods at any time up to the end of the seventh working day, after the day you receive the ordered goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.
If we have not dispatched the goods within 30 days of the dispatch date stated in our confirmation of your order (or within 30 days of your order if we have not given confirmation of the order within that period) then you may cancel your contract with us for the goods.
To cancel your contract you must notify us in writing using the address, fax or e-mail details specified in ‘About Us’. If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then unless, as specified above, you do not have a right to cancel, and you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery you must not unpack the goods when they are received by you, and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit or debit card will be re-credited to your account or the amount of any cleared cheque payment will be reimbursed to you, in either case as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of cancellation PROVIDED THAT the goods in question are returned by you, and received by us in the condition they were in when delivered to you. If you do not return the goods delivered to you, or do not pay the costs of delivery, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be re-credited to you.
Cancellation by us
We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if: we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered; we do not deliver to your area; or one or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.
If we do cancel your contract we will endeavour to notify you (by email where your email address has been provided) and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit or debit card, or reimburse to you the amount of any cleared cheque, in either case as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered.
Delivery of Goods to You
We will deliver your ordered goods to the address that you provide us with, when you place your order. We may deliver the goods in several consignments to the same address, but will not charge extra for this.
We will normally dispatch your goods within 3 to 5 business days of receiving your order. This time period or any alternative dispatch date stated in our confirmation of your order is indicative only and we cannot guarantee an exact delivery date.
If you select ‘Christmas Delivery’, your order will be dispatched as per detailed on your order confirmation.
We cannot be held responsible for the condition of your goods if delivery cannot be made because there is no one at the delivery address.
If delivery cannot be made due to your absence at the time of delivery, you agree to pay our reasonable additional fees for redelivery. We will inform you of the cost of these fees as soon as reasonably practicable, and you will have the option of reconfirming your order including the additional fees, or cancelling your order (except in the case of perishable food products, which cannot be cancelled). If you cancel your order we will refund the purchase price of the goods, but you agree that we may retain your original delivery fee in compensation for the time and expenses incurred for the failed delivery. If we have a record of 'attempted delivery' from the delivery company, this is deemed proof that delivery was attempted.
If the delivery company have a signed acknowledgement of delivery, this is deemed proof that delivery was made. We cannot be held liable for the alleged loss of goods if delivery was signed for by a neighbour or other third party accepting delivery in your absence. If you ask the delivery company to leave the parcel in a specified place without a signature, we cannot be responsible if the parcel is subsequently lost, stolen or damaged.
You must observe and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation, including obtaining all necessary customs, import or other permits to purchase goods from our site. The importation or exportation of certain of our goods to you may be prohibited by certain national laws. We make no representation and accept no liability in respect of the export or import of the goods you purchase.

Guarantee and Liability
Our goods are guaranteed free from material damage or defect (save for damage or deterioration occurring in the course of delivery). Although the greatest care will be made in packaging the goods, we cannot accept responsibility for damage sustained to them during the course of delivery.
You should inspect the goods when you receive them for defect or damage. If you find any defect or damage you must notify us as within 24 hours of receipt of the goods. Photographic evidence may be required. Notification should be in writing using the contact details specified above.
If we are responsible for the damage or defect, we can elect to refund the purchase price or provide replacement goods at no cost to you. If we elect to refund the purchase price or provide replacement goods we will be deemed to have complied with our obligations under the contract and no claim can arise out of your rejection of the original goods.
Packaging of goods sometimes varies to that illustrated on our website and/or in our catalogue. Save as precluded by law, we will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss, damage or expenses (including loss of profits, business or goodwill) howsoever arising out of our contract with you and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question.
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, bad weather (including snow, ice or flooding), accident, strikes, lock-outs and other industrial disputes, or breakdown of I.T. systems or network access.
Whenever you place an online order we’ll do our very best to deliver all the items you’ve ordered. Occasionally, when goods are out of stock or otherwise unavailable we’ll offer substitutes. We choose substitutes very carefully and offer what we believe is the most appropriate alternative to the product you’ve ordered. Cheese will be of similar size, blend and flavour. If we offer substitutes we’ll make this clear by detailing them on your delivery paperwork. You can refuse the substitute by returning the product to us - we will then offer a full refund. Please note this is also applicable to products within a hamper.
If any part of these terms and conditions is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.
