We will tell you if your payment details cannot be authorised for any reason and may invite you to pay by another method or suggest that you (re-)visit our shop.
Your order is sent directly to our secure till in our shop for processing. Once we have received your order and payment, our staff will pick, pack and dispatch the item.

If you are not in when the goods are delivered, goods may be left with neighbours and/or a card will be left with contact details for you to arrange another delivery. If the courier is not contacted, they will automatically try to deliver your beers on the next two consecutive days, leaving a contact card on the first day and a card to advise of the consignment being returned to the depot on the second. Should the goods then be returned to the Company after all attempts have failed, we will issue a full credit minus delivery charges, or re-despatch on your instruction when the same delivery cost will be charged against your account.
