If we cannot contact you, our driver will wait 15 minutes before returning the meat to our shop, for you to pick up.
Our driver will place an "Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt" card in your letter box.
If you are unable to pick up the order and/or need it redelivered, you will be charged an additional restocking and redelivery fee.
Under no circumstances whatsoever do we leave meat unattended, or unsigned for, unless the "Authority to leave order unattended" checkbox has been ticked during checkout.
Can I cancel my order?
Once you have placed an order through the online store, the site is unable to cancel the order for you. If you want to cancel or amend the order, please call us.
