Terms & Conditions


We endeavour to dispatch all stock items within 24 hours of receiving your order (Monday to Friday), however if this is not possible we will contact you. We use UK Mail Couriers for all consignments and request next working day delivery. We aim to keep all items on the website in stock, however if we have temporarily sold out of your chosen item we will contact you directly with an expected delivery date. If this is unacceptable you are free to re-select or cancel your order. Orders placed on the website at the weekend or during bank Holidays will be dispatched within 24 hours of the next working day.

We will endeavour to meet your chosen delivery date within the “Your Date” choice of the checkout, but can not guarantee it and will not be held responsible for not being able to deliver on your chosen date due to circumstances beyond our control.


Whilst we make every effort to remove all bones, shells etc. from filleted fish, prepared shellfish, etc. please check thoroughly that there are no bones or foreign bodies left within any fillets as no liability will be accepted by the company for any injury or loss as a result of these items.

Accuracy of delivery details

You are responsible for giving us a full and correct address for all deliveries, including but not limited to the postcode. If our carriers are unable to deliver any order due to any error in the address, you will be charged for the order in full. Should you ask for your order to be left in a specific place (for example a garden shed or in your porch) and the carrier cannot obtain a signature to confirm the delivery of your order, it will be left at your own risk, we accept no liability for its loss or damage.


All items must be paid for in full before we can dispatch them through our secure online store or by credit card telephone orders.

Postage and Packing

UK Mainland: For orders totaling less than £75.00 delivery is charged at £7.95. Orders of £75.00 or more qualify for free delivery. If your delivery destination is beyond the UK mainland we will email you with the estimated delivery cost and you can then tell us if you wish to proceed with the order on that basis.
