We keep the right to cancel your order anytime. If for whatever reason we are unable to accept or deliver your order, we will inform you of this and you will not be charged for your order. Reasons we might not be able to accept your order because the product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
We also reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information in the Service or on any related website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).
We cannot be held responsible if you give us incorrect or incomplete information regarding your order and afterward, we are unable to deliver to the correct address.

Weights, cutting, and packaging
Weights given on the website are there for guidance, all our cheese are cut by our cheesemonger’s fair hands, they always try to do their utmost best to be as accurate as possible to the exact weights stated. Please kindly note will be unable to offer you a refund where there is a reasonable tolerance from the stated weights on our site. We promise if we do cut one piece slightly under, we will try to make up the difference with the next in your order. Many of our cheeses are handmade artisan products which, by their nature, vary from individual cheese to cheese.
Cheese is a ‘live’ product and will leave us in the best condition, it will be carefully wrapped in our waxed cheese paper to help maintain humidity around the cheese and allow it to breathe. During the summer month when the weather is hotter, the courier will also cover your parcel with ice packs. These packs will melt in transit but will help to ensure the cheese stays cold for a long time as possible. Please remember that it is a fragile and perishable product and will need to be cared for once you receive it. It must be kept cool, especially in very hot weather. If you wrap your cheese in cling film or foil after delivery, it can cause the cheese to sweat which will ultimately affect the flavor, not in a positive way. We suggest you put your cheese in a sealed box at the bottom of your fridge to help prevent it from drying out and prevent the cheese from absorbing flavors. We suggest cut cheeses are consumed within five days of receipt.
If for some reason a cheese you have ordered becomes unavailable, we will replace it with a similar product that is comparable in quality and origin to the same or greater value for no extra cost. If we can’t do this, we will be in touch to discuss an alternative from our extensive range of great cheeses. Who knows, we might just recommend your new favorite. If you do not wish any substitutions please add this comment on your order, or get in touch with us, we will notify you and give you the opportunity to either cancel your order or wait for the affected product to become available.
