1. PLACING AN ORDER
Our Site permits you to purchase our Products for Same Day and Advance orders.
1.1. Your order constitutes a request to us to buy a Product(s). Full payment for both the Product and any delivery fee(s) is required at the point of the transaction. This payment represents a legally binding agreement to the terms set out here.
1.2. Once the order is completed, you will receive an Order Confirmation email from us. This confirms that we have received your order and it has been accepted.
1.3. It is your responsibility to check the Order Confirmation to ensure that the order details are correct. This includes the items ordered, the date, address for delivery/store for collection, recipient’s phone number, time of delivery and any specific delivery information. If you do not receive an Order Confirmation, please first check your junk folder as it might be redirected there by your security software. If not there, please contact us directly to enquire.
1.4. If you notice an error in your Order Confirmation, you must notify us immediately for same day orders or prior to the order cut-off times for advance or catering orders. Please note that we cannot guarantee any amendment for same day orders and that no amendment has been made to any order until confirmed in writing by us.
1.5. We cannot accept responsibility for any errors made during the ordering process and for the impact that this may have on your order.
1.6. Your purchase cannot be confirmed until payment in full for the Products ordered has been received by us, unless explicitly agreed to by us in advance.
1.7. As some of our Products and/or flavours are seasonal and so subject to change, in any instance where a Product/flavour is no longer available, we will contact you to advise and offer an alternative.

2.1. Our prices include VAT (where appropriate).
2.2. Any delivery charge will be added to the total amount during the payment process, before completion of your order.

2.4. The prices for our Products to be paid by you will be quoted on our Site, except in cases of obvious error. In such instances, there is no obligation on our part to honour the incorrect price if the error in pricing could have reasonably been recognised by you as incorrect. This applies to all orders, even if a quote/invoice has been sent.
2.5. Unless otherwise arranged, payment for all Products must be made by credit or debit card. For clarification on whether your card is accepted, please contact us.

4.3. If, for any reason, you find that you are unable to collect your order during the order process on the day of collection, please contact us, to advise.
