Q. How much does the delivery cost?
A. The delivery charge is £9, but if your goods total £75 or above then delivery is free.
Q. How quickly can you deliver to me?
A. We can deliver all orders in 3 days.
You place the order on Day 1, we freshly cut it on Day 2, and you receive it on Day 3.
Q. Is there anywhere you don't deliver?
A. Unfortunately we can't deliver to the Scottish Highlands, postcodes IV, KW1-14, PA34, PA37-39, PH19-40, PH41 4, PH49-50.
This is because our couriers can't get to you within 24 hours, and we can't guarantee the temperature of the meat for longer than that.
This also applies to the Shetland, Orkney, and Channel Islands, Northern Ireland, and the Isle of Man.
Q. I don't want to wait in all day, can I specify a delivery time?
A.We do have a staggered delivery option, just chose which suits you best in the checkout when you place your order.
Our courier drivers are told that if there is no-one home when they deliver, they should leave the parcel with a neighbour or somewhere safe.
If you have any requests for where parcels should be left if you are not there, please tell us in the 'Special Instructions' box in Checkout.
Q. It's past my allotted delivery time and my delivery isn't here, do you know where it is?
A. Give us a call on 0844 880 2460 and we will find out what is happening with your order.
Q. There's something that I'm looking for that isn't listed, do you sell it?
A. We have a wide list of contacts, and we can source most meat items.
If there is a specific item you need and you can't find it on the site, please email our Master Butchers.
They'll let you know prices and how long it will take for us to get for you.
Q. Will the meat I've bought be sent to me fresh or frozen?
A. We don't believe in freezing our meat.
We send everything fresh, as we think that it keeps the quality high. However, there are some products which we have to freeze.
Our Black and White Pudding and Haggis are sent out frozen, they will have begun to defrost when they reach you, and should not be re-frozen. We have to freeze them as we buy them in direct from our Scottish supplier, and they would delay the rest of your order if we bought them in fresh for each custmer. So we keep a frozen stock of them.
Q. How will the temperature be maintained?
A. Your goods are sent with technologically advanced Ice Pads, and wrapped in bubble wrap. This keeps them cool throughout their journey to you.
All orders are dispatched in Polystyrene boxes that further help to maintain their temperature.
Q. Do you supply restaurant customers?
A. Yes, you can find out more at Trade Enquiries.
