  • How long does delivery take?
    • It is an overnight delivery - we despatch your parcel in the evening for delivery the following day. However, we need as much notice on all orders as everything is prepared freshly to order. Whilst delivery is usually 24 hours it can longer and this may partially depend on whether itís something we are making ourselves in our smokehouse or kitchens or sourcing for you from our specialist suppliers. Add the products you'd like to your shopping basket and proceed through the checkout and you will be given the delivery options before paying.

  • When will my order arrive?
    • For many products we accept orders for next day delivery up to 10am. For a very few items however - fresh pies and some meats in particular - you may need to place your order by Friday of one week for delivery the following. To check the next available delivery date, select the products you would like and 'view basket' to see the options.

  • How will my food keep cool enough in transit?
    • All our foods are individually packaged in heavy duty export-strength cardboard boxes insulated with polystyrene. There is bubble pack to keep the goods secure, and ice packs to ensure the goods stay in refrigerated temperatures during transit. We have been doing this successfully for many years now.

  • I live in the middle of nowhere. How will the delivery driver ever find me?
    • As our courier, Parcelforce, is part of Royal Mail, they locate your property using your postcode. As long as this is correct, the driver will have no problem finding where you are.

  • Will the courier 'leave safe' my parcel if I'm not in?
    • It is preferable for you to be in to receive delivery as our couriers, Parcelforce, do prefer a signature. However, if you fill in the 'special instructions' box on the checkout page with where the courier can leave your parcel, this will be passed on to the driver.

  • Why can't you deliver on a Monday?
    • Other than some Mondays in the Christmas period there is unfortunately no collection by our courier company on Sundays for an overnight delivery.

  • Do you have a shop?
    • We will be opening a shop at our smokehouse at some point soon, please sign up for our email notifications and we'll let you know when it's open. For now most of our products are exclusively available via our catalogue and/or online.

  • I live quite close to you. Can I come to collect my food?
    • You can certainly collect your goods from us but you still need to order in advance. Please call us in the office on 0208 5252352 for further details.

  • Are your foods previously frozen?
    • The majority of our foods are fresh. Check the Product Specifications for the item you're interested in to see if it has been previously frozen. You will also find further storage information here. Please note that while your goods are in fridge temperatures during transit, we do not guarantee that products will remain frozen until delivery.

  • I have specific dietary requirements. How can I find out which of your foods are suitable for me?
    • We are in the process of compiling full ingredients for every product we sell, most are already listed on the individual product pages - click onto the product and then the box labelled 'ingredients' alongside the code.
