As a rule our standard delivery days are Wednesday - Saturday.

If you need a delivery on another day of the week please call us and we will organise your delivery for you if it is possible.



We have a standard lead time of 3 days between placing your order and having a delivery.

For example: Order by 6pm on Wednesday for delivery on Saturday.

If you have missed the deadline please contact us and we will do our very best to help.

During busy times like the summer and Christmas it may not be possible to get you a delivery slot.

We have lead times because we work with lots of small suppliers and everything is freshly prepared so they do need time to prepare your food.



We DO NOT operate a timed delivery service. 

If you do not think you will be in when we deliver just let us know where to safely leave your food box.

We do offer an ICE PACKING SERVICE - please ask us for more information.

We work on a system of rounds and you will be slotted into that round depending on the number of orders.

If you are coming down on holiday please make sure you leave information about your accommodation provider.

We will contact them and organise the delivery for you and arrange for the delivery to be put away in the accommodation if we are able to access the property but please note that during the Covid-19 pademic we are unable to enter your accommodation.

Our wonderful delivery drivers will pop your box inside the door for you if we have been given permission to do so.

In the case of deliveries for CLASSIC COTTAGES guests: Please leave us the contact number of the house owner / housekeeper and we will make the arrangements.



We deliver ourselves using refrigerated vans, and your order will come packed in one our returnable boxes.

Leave your box out and we will collect it when we next deliver to you.

Boxes delivered by our own vehicles are not chilled once they have been left with you, so if you are concerned about fresh produce being left please leave us a cool box or a suitable place to leave the delivery.

If your order is being delivered out of Cornwall it will be delivered by a courier and chilled items will be packed to stay cool for 36hrs.

We ask you to let us know where to leave your box if you aren't going to be at home. A shed or open garage are ideal. Your box will be left safe if you are not at home to accept delivery on your chosen delivery day. Fresh food boxes cannot be taken back to the depot for collection at a later date.



Most holiday cottage deliveries will be unpacked and put away in the kitchen prior to your arrival.

Please let us know where you are staying, who you have booked through, and the property key code if you have one. We will arrange everything else for you.


Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are not able to offer our unpacking service at this time. We will liase with your agency or owner about delivery.

If you are not able to be available for delivery we can pack into chilled boxes which can be left safe for your arrival. Please contact us for more information.

We charge an additional £5 if you require a box to be packed with ice for you.



We do not offer a timed delivery service - we work on a delivery round system and delivery times will vary depending on the number of drops we have that day.

We believe this is best for the environment of our beautiful county, and helps ease congestion on our roads, especially at peak times.

Please contact us for more information.


As with most things we are very happy to help and will be extremely flexible where we can help.

Please call our team on 01872 211533 and if we can help, then we will!
