  • USA - 11th December

We will continue to dispatch up until December 20th, but orders received by dates above will give the best chance of pre-Christmas delivery.

  • We use a courier service for our deliveries. 
  • Courier deliveries are made Monday – Friday (not including Bank Holidays). There is no option currently for Saturday or timed deliveries.

  • Recipient telephone numbers must be supplied with each order. We ask for recipient telephone numbers so that we can contact people directly in the event of a delivery issue.
  • Please note that a signature will be required to confirm receipt of deliveries and that we cannot accept delivery to PO Box addresses.  Nobody home? If the recipient is not there to receive a parcel, the carrier will contact the number on the delivery label to make arrangements for an alternative delivery point. If there is no answer to this call, delivery will be attempted again the following day. If several unsuccessful attempted deliveries have been made, the parcel will be returned to our premises. While we may refund the value of the goods, the delivery cost cannot be refunded.

Delayed Deliveries / Insufficient Address Details

We will deliver to the address as you enter it and cannot accept any liability for late or failed delivery if the quoted address, phone number or other contact details provided are incorrect. So please be careful when entering delivery address details on our checkout page. If goods have been returned to our premises and must be sent out again, a second delivery charge will apply.

We are unable to change a delivery address once the order has been dispatched.

Parcels will be dispatched Monday – Thursday. Irish parcels are usually next day deliveries, however with the on-going Covid restrictions this does impact the courier service.  So at the minute we expect deliveries in Ireland to take up to 2 to 3 working days.  International parcels will take from 3-5 days.

While we endeavor to provide as efficient a service as possible, please also allow up to  2-3 days to organize the dispatch of your order, in case any product is not in stock and we need to bake some more!
