Delivery & Returns

Delivery days and times

Please note that deliveries can only be made on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm. This means we only ship cheese on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you require a Saturday delivery, please get in touch for costings.


We do not accept any liability for any order of perishable goods that is not refrigerated immediately upon delivery.

We are happy to deliver to a place of work if that is more convenient.

If you have placed an order and have any queries regarding the delivery time please ring our courier, APC, on 0800 37 37 37.

Your order

We only send cheeses that meet our exacting standards. If a cheese you have ordered is either not in stock, or has not reached it’s peak of maturity we will find a suitable substitute that will compliment the rest of your order.

Cutting and Weights

There is an art to cutting cheeses accurately by hand, and as such there will at times be a small margin for error. If one of the cheeses we cut is underweight we will make up for this by cutting another cheese a bit larger.

If you not satisfied with any aspect of your order, please contact us within 24 hours. Please note, in order for us to inspect the goods they will need to be returned to us.

Our courier works very hard to ensure all of our parcel are delivered in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, occasionally this does not happen, and parcels are delayed.

Cost of delivery

For orders weighing 3kg or less, the standard delivery charge for most postcodes within the UK mainland is £9.50. If you live outside a major metropolitan area, or if the courier determines your postcode is off of the main route, there may be a surcharge.

If your order exceeds 10kg then there may be an additional delivery charge. If this is the case, we will contact you by email or telephone before dispatching your order.

If you would like your order to be delivered outside the mainland UK then there will be an additional delivery charge. Please call or email the shop to discuss.

Dispatch within two working days

We attempt to dispatch every order within two working days from when the order is placed. We will contact you by email or telephone if we cannot meet this timeframe.

If you need your order for a particular date then please email or telephone the shop or include details in the ‘Special Instructions’ for your order.

Address and special instructions

Please provide us with your full postcode and a house number, not just a house name.

If your house does not have a number or it is difficult to find then please give some additional information to help the courier identify the property. For example: ‘The first cottage on the left after the petrol station.’

Please also provide alternative delivery instructions in the event that you are out. For example: ‘Leave with neighbour or put in garage.’

Additional information can be added in the ‘Special Instructions’ box at checkout.
