We try to ensure that your order arrives in good condition and we use specially designed insulated packaging and chiller packs to achieve this. Our insulated packaging uses sheep’s wool, which is sustainable and highly effective, giving us an eco-friendly solution to keeping your order chilled.
We take payment at the time of ordering, not at the time of despatch, to avoid any added complications, which may delay the receipt of your order. We accept payment by Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Electron, Paypal and debit cards. We do not accept orders until we are sure that we can fulfil them and if there is a problem, we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible.
All our products arrive vacuum packed and you should have at least 14 days in which to use them. We recommend opening our packets a short while before you want to serve it, in order for the air to ‘lift’ the products, making separating easier and allowing the product to “breath” which, like a fine wine, always allows the flavours to come out. They should be kept refrigerated and consumed within 3 days of opening. You can also freeze all our products, except Gravad Lax and this does not adversely affect either the taste or the texture.
Personnel Gift Messages
If you order by post and enclose a personnel card, we will be happy to include it in your order.
If you choose to add a message through our website, we will include a gift card on your behalf, however we are not responsible for any message that the recipient may consider offensive.
Orders will normally be despatched within 3 working days (Monday to Thursday) of receiving your order, by a next day delivery service. We do not despatch on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, to avoid being in transit over the weekend.
We strongly recommend that if your order is required for a special event, like a party, that you request your delivery to arrive a few days before, to allow for any unforeseen circumstances that may delay the safe arrival of your order. We would much rather it were safe in your fridge, with time to spare, so that you can relax. If it is for a birthday we are happy to try and deliver on the day, if it is a midweek birthday.
Our deliveries are arranged through an independent courier, therefore we cannot take responsibility for delays which are outside of our control, such as inclement weather, industrial action or a van malfunction! Obviously we will endeavour to inform you of any delays.
Because of the perishable nature of our products, our courier company is authorised by us to leave your parcel in a safe place. We feel it is better for them to deliver the parcel, in this way, rather than you having to collect it from the depot or to arrange a redelivery. In order to help the driver, you can indicate a suitable place to leave the parcel, eg in the garage, when you place your order. Unfortunately our packaging sometimes makes our parcels too large to be posted through the average sized letterbox. A daytime telephone number is also needed, for yourself and for where the parcel is going to, so that the driver can contact you.
Postcodes and telephone numbers are required for both the orderer and where the parcel is going. The Weald Smokery cannot be held responsible for parcels that are undelivered or misrouted due to incorrect addresses and postcodes provided by the customer or recipients who are permanently away.
Occasionally it may be necessary to substitute any unavailable items with one of equal or greater value and of a similar nature.
Delivery to UK mainland addresses is £5.00, to cover the cost of the packaging. It is free if you spend over £60, per delivery address.
Delivery to the following incurs additional delivery costs, as detailed, which will be incurred even if you spend over £60
|Area||Cost per delivery
order over £70
|Cost per delivery
order under £70
|Highlands and Islands||£15.00||£20.00|
We no longer accept orders that are to be sent abroad, due to the perishable nature of our products and the lack of control we have in ensuring they arrive in good condition.
