After processing an order (which can be delayed if we are out of stock of the products ordered in which case we will advise you), all orders are despatched using an Express (1 day) or Standard (2 -3 day) courier service (Monday to Friday only) to most mainland destinations in the UK (outlying areas of the UK can take up to three - four days).

Delivery charges are calculated based on the weight of the product and the destination address. We ship to most countries, although delivery of alcohol related products to Canada and the United States is prohibited.

Please note that we cannot send to European PO Box or Mail Box addresses.
