Although we will always try to cater for your orders, an order of large quantities of an item can only be fulfilled at the discretion of the store. For example, if you were to make an order of 20 bottles of a Sauce which would use up all that store's stock, the store may only deliver 10 bottles.
4. Pricing, Descriptions and Product Information
The price of a product is that which is displayed on the website at the time of placing the order (plus a delivery charge). Our website has large number of products and despite all of our efforts it is always possible that a listed product could be priced wrongly. If the correct price of the product is higher than the price stated on the website, then we are under no obligation to supply the product at this price. Should this be the case then you will be advised as soon as possible and given the option to reconfirm the order at the correct price or cancelling it. Should be we unable to contact you then the order will be treated as cancelled.

All sizes, measurements and dimensions are approximates and every effort has been taken to ensure that they are as accurate as possible.
5. Placing an Order and Acceptance
The placing of an order is an offer to buy from us and a contract is only formed once the order has been despatched. At any point until then, we may decline the order and the supply of the goods. The order acknowledgement email and order number do not confirm the order and are not an acceptance from us. Where items are despatched seperately, our acceptance of the order takes place for each item at time of despatch.
Payment shall be taken from your card at the time of receiving your order and once the card details and stock availability have been checked. Payment must be made by a valid debit or credit card acceptable to us. The address at which the card is registered must be the same as your billing addres and a new payment card can be registered at any time, but the card used for a given order cannot be changed once you have check out. The name, address and other personal information supplied during the plaing of an order will be validated using a third party database to ensure that the card is not being used without your consent. By agreeing to these terms and conditions you are giving consent to such checks being carried out.
We send out all parcels within the UK via our UK reputable courier partners. Orders placed for delivery within the UK, Northen Ireland and Scottish Highlands are all sent out on a Next Business Day Delivery service for all orders placed before 12pm. Pricing of delivery shall be charged at the time of check out according to the shipping weight of the items and order amount. At time to time promotional offers may allow for a reduced delivery charge or free delivery. Delivery shall be made to the registered delivery address, or the address given when the order was placed by you. Orders are usually dispatched within 24 hours, however on some occasions it may take longer for the products to be dispatched.
Due to the delivery time taken for UK deliveries only Non-perishable products can be ordered. In such a case where perishable products have been placed into an order, the order will be dispatched without the perishable products and not charged for.
As long as we have processed and received the payment in full for the products, the ownership of the items will pass on to you once the items have been delivered to you (either directly, by leaving it in a safe place or with a neighbour). Once an item has been delivered, risk of loss or damage of the item passes over to you. We will require for the products to be signed for on delivery by an adult of the age of 18 and over, and it will be taken that consent has been given to this person to sign and take collection of the goods. If in any circumstances the courier service provider confirms a delivery time with yourself and nobody is available at the agreed time, then the goods may be returned to us and we are entitled to charge you for any perishable goods and a return to sender delivery charge of £5.
If the courier company attempts to deliver your order to the delivery address as arranged with you but there is nobody at the delivery address who is 18 years of age or over to accept your order, the driver will leave notification of attempted delivery and will try to make a second delivery attempt. In this case we cannot guarantee the quality of any perishable goods in the order.
Whilst we take every care to ensure that the products are delivered in a given time frame we do not accept any liability if we fail to do so in part or in full due to circumstances being out of our control.
For a full list of our delivery charges please see our Shipping charges.
