​Our contract with you

Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

  1.  If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably anticipate, 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.
  2. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. Please quote this number whenever you contact us about your order.
  3. We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK.

Our products

Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only.

Your product may vary slightly from those images.

Providing the products

  1. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
  2. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
  3. If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will attempt to leave the products with a neighbour. If this is not possible, we will leave the products on your doorstep (or any other safe place as indicated by you) and leave you a note informing you of where we have left the products.
  4.  Some products are perishable frozen items of food. Therefore we cannot guarantee that frozen products will be so, upon delivery. This means that all responsibility must be taken by the customer.
  5. You have legal rights if we deliver any goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any product then you may treat the contract as at an end immediately if any of the following apply:
    1. we have refused to deliver the goods;
    2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
    3. you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
  6.  The products will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or to a neighbour, or other safe place determined at the time of delivery.
  7. We may suspend supply of the product if payment is not made. We will not supply the products to you until we have received payment.

  2. When you don't have the right to change your mind, you do not have a right to change your mind in respect of our food products once they have been packed for delivery.

Alcohol Sales

Fairhursts Catering recognises that some of our products, such as those that are alcoholic, can be harmful if misused and unhealthy if consumed too often. These products are age restricted as required by law, meaning that customers are required to present verification of their age when purchasing alcohol from us. 


We will continue to offer our local delivery for those in DL8 postcodes, this will take place on a Thursday. If you wish to place an order for Thursday local delivery, the cut off time for this is 12pm lunchtime on a Tuesday. 

Thursday local delivery is £4.95.

We also offer a standard delivery option, available throughout Mainland UK at £6.95. Mainland deliveries are scheduled Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm. Orders are dispatched using multiple couriers direct from our farm shop in Swinithwaite. 

There is a minimum spend of £25 (excluding delivery) on all orders to be delivered. 

We kindly ask that you check you have entered the correct postcode when filling out your delivery details, as we can’t be held responsible if this is quoted incorrectly by customers. 

All of our orders will be dispatched as soon as possible, usually within 2 - 5 days. Therefore we cannot guarantee that frozen products will be so, upon delivery. This means that all responsibility must be taken by the customer. 

If you would prefer weekend delivery, then please contact us on 01969 624668 and we will be happy to arrange this for you, for an additional charge. Similarly, if there is a specific date you would like your order to arrive, please do let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to adhere to your request.

If you would like us to print any specific delivery instructions on your parcel, please state this at checkout. 

We always try to meet our delivery deadlines, however if we are waiting on deliveries to come in it may hold things up. We will contact you with information on how you would like to proceed with your order. 

We also offer click and collect, please note that the minimum spend for these orders is £20.


The price of the product will be the price indicated on the product pages on our website and listed when you place your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct at the time of ordering.

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced.

We accept payment with all major credit and debit cards.

You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will charge your credit or debit card at the point your order is confirmed on our website.


You have the right to cancel your order and claim a refund without giving any reason or justification and without incurring any liability (unless exceptions apply) within 14 calendar days of receiving the goods.

This right gives you the opportunity to examine the goods as you would be able to do in a retail store.

However, this is not applicable with perishable goods or goods that are likely to expire rapidly. Therefore excluding the ability to cancel orders on products from any of the following categories on our website:

  • Butchery
  • Cheese
  • Dairy
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Ready Meals (including Sides and Desserts)
  • Roast Boxes
  • Frozen

You can also lose your right to cancel if:

  • You unseal certain goods after delivery where the seal is necessary for health protection or hygiene reasons (e.g. ready meals)
  • The goods become mixed inseparably with other goods 

Please note: in the case of a customer wanting to cancel their order, we do require that they pay for the return of goods to us. 

The goods must be returned to us within 14 calendar days of the confirmed cancellation. 

If your order is in transit already, it is unlikely you will be able to cancel it before it reaches you. 

We aim to refund our customers for any cancelled orders within 14 days of either us getting the goods back, or you providing evidence of having returned the goods (for example, a proof of postage from the post office) - whichever is the sooner.

A deduction can be made if the value of the goods has been reduced as a result of you handling the goods more than was necessary.


Fairhursts Catering do our best to ensure that all of our goods are supplied to our customers in perfect condition and that every possible precaution is taken to protect the integrity of the product that is sold.

We offer full refunds to customers if an item is faulty, not as described or does not do what it’s supposed to. We will pay the costs of repairing or replacing your faulty item if you wish for it to be replaced. We will also pay to deliver it back to you.

We offer refunds to customers if we have been told within 14 days of receiving their goods that you want to cancel. You have another 14 days to return the goods once you've told us. We will refund you within 14 days of receiving the goods back.

Please note: we do require that customers pay for the return of goods to us, granted the items were not faulty.

However, some of our products fall under those contracts exempted from the right to cancel, this includes:

  • Those for goods that expire or deteriorate rapidly.

This will mean that products that fall into the following categories cannot be cancelled and/or refunded:

  • Butchery
  • Cheese
  • Dairy
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Ready Meals (including Sides and Desserts)
  • Roast Boxes
  • Frozen
