Delivery Information


Delivery information all year round

Updated 24th March 2024

We are currently using Royal Mail's tracked 24 service for the majority of our deliveries & occasionally DHL for larger parcels.  If the tracked 24 service is unavailable we may use 1st class post.  Small orders consisting solely of items which do not require refrigeration such as chutneys, crackers & fruit cakes will be sent by Royal Mail's tracked 48 service. 

Although we use a next day delivery service for cheese orders, there can sometimes be delays & we recommend that if your order is for a special occasion, please order in good time & let us know when your order is needed by.

We recommend that someone is available to accept the parcel at the delivery address but do let us know if there is a safe place where it can be left & we can add these instructions when we book the delivery service.

Tracking information is usually sent to the email given on the order.

A contact phone number will be required in addition to the delivery address and if not provided may result in delays in the event of an attempted delivery. We would like to make it clear that any phone numbers given to us will only be used if necessary in relation to a specific order or delivery and for no other purpose.

We regret that we are not able to deliver to B.F.P.O or P.O. addresses or outside of the UK.

Please note that in the event of severe weather or circumstances, deliveries may be delayed, but we will do our best to keep customers informed.

UK delivery

The Royal Mail delivery service enables us to send orders to all parts of the UK including Northern Ireland.  Occasionally delivery can take a little longer to outlying areas.
