Delivery & Returns

COVID-19 Update 30-11-2021

Please read before proceeding with your order.



Current demand exceeds supply for some products, especially our West Cork Wagyu Beef.

We will do our very best to fulfil your order, but in some cases, if we cannot, we may replace an item, with a very similar product.

Any replacements will be of equal or greater value than the original item ordered.



Due to the current crisis, our courier (DPD) is experiencing greater than normal volumes of deliveries.

As such, they no longer guarantee us next day delivery.

In light of this, we will now dispatch orders on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday only.

Orders dispatched on Wednesday, will reach the customer by the latest, Friday.

Our meat is vacuum packed in sealed insulated boxes, with freezer packs. These boxes have been tested to hold meat at the correct temperature of 5°C or below for over 48hrs.
