Orders within Central Edinburgh and below £100 in value incur a delivery charge of £5 and delivery further afield is subject to agreement.
Delivery outside of our standard hours is also subject to negotiation.
We will require prompt delivery of our catering orders, will you be able to deliver on time?
We aim to deliver to you at the time requested but normally we will provide a half hour delivery window to allow for potential unforeseen delays due to traffic, road closures, accidents, and other things beyond our control. While we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time we advise requesting a delivery hour that is approximately half an hour before your required time to allow the set-up of food, removal of food coverings and any delays that may occur on the road. This is normally ample to allow for any minor delays.
Should we encounter unexpected delays we will call you prior to your delivery time to inform you of this.
