It is important that you check all the information that you enter and correct any errors before submitting your order to us, as once you do so we will begin processing your Order and we may be unable to correct any errors.

4.2. Changing or cancelling your Order: Once you have submitted your Order and your payment has been authorised, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your Order, nor will you be entitled to a refund (please refer to paragraph 4.4 for details of the process relating to rejected Orders).

4.5. Delivery times: Estimated times for deliveries should be treated only as estimates. We do not guarantee that Orders will be delivered or will be available for collection within the estimated times.

5. PRICES AND PAYMENT

5.1. Payment methods: Payment for Orders must be made by an accepted credit or debit card through the Website or in cash at the point of delivery to you.

5.2. Card payments: If you pay by credit or debit card, you may be required to show the card to us at the time of delivery as proof of identification and so that they can check that the card conforms with the receipt data for the Order. Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to sixty (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.

5.3. VAT and delivery costs: Prices will be as quoted on the Website. These prices include VAT but may exclude delivery costs (if you opt for delivery instead of collection) and any online payment fees we impose (if you pay for your Order online). These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.

5.4. Incorrect pricing: This Website contains a large number of menus and it is possible that some of the menus may include incorrect prices. If the correct price for an Order is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will normally contact you before the relevant Order is dispatched. In such an event, we are not under any obligation to ensure that the Order is provided to you at the incorrect lower price or to compensate you in respect of incorrect pricing.

5.5. Rejected Orders: Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorized, your bank or card issuer will “ring-fence” the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently rejected by us (as described in paragraph 4.4 above) or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Order to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
