We aim to dispatch all orders by the next working day following receipt of order, but please note that we do not dispatch orders on weekends or UK bank holidays!

Next day delivery orders placed before 1pm Mon-Fri, will be dispatched that day. Orders placed after 1pm may be dispatched the next working day, regardless of delivery method chosen.

In the unlikely event that an item you've ordered has gone out of stock, we'll get in touch via email or phone to see how you'd like to proceed.

For Royal Mail deliveries we ask customers to allow 3-5 working days for delivery to UK addresses. If you are ordering from abroad, these delivery times may be longer. Please be aware that since Brexit, we have been experiencing longer delays than normal with orders to the EU. We're sorry about this and will continue to do what we can to get your orders to you as quickly as possible.

During the months of November and December, please check back on the website to see our Christmas Delivery policy.
