Our contract with you

When you place an order with us, your order is classed as an offer which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract. Acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

Unfortunately, we are not able deliver orders placed through the website to addresses outside of the specified areas of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Product description and substitution

Products and their packaging may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only.

Where you have provided your consent for us to do so we may substitute part or all of the product you have ordered for a similar product of an equivalent or greater value. The price of your order will not change.

Where you have indicated that you do not want a substitute product or having consented to receiving a substitute, a suitable substitute is not available, we will notify you and give you the opportunity to either cancel your order or wait for the affected product to become available.

Your right to make changes

If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us and we will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of your order, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

Local delivery

Unless otherwise agreed with you, we will deliver all products as close to the delivery date requested by you as reasonably possible. We use our own courier for delivery within most of Cambridge.

Since most of our products are perishable it is always best if someone is available to receive and sign for the delivery, however you can arrange for the couriers to leave the goods without a signature if you are not going to be in. If you have any questions or issues with your delivery, it is best to contact us as a first point of call.

If delivery is delayed then we or our courier company will contact you to let you know and we will attempt to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this and the delay is caused by an event outside of our control we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us. You own the product once we have accepted your order and received payment in full.

Quality concerns

We take great pride in the quality and condition of our products and it should reach you in the best possible condition.
