Updated 23rd of September 2021
Orders to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are being delivered by DPD in most cases within 24hrs. However as we now slowly approach the Christmas period they will get busier and with the shortage of drivers we do expect their to be some delays over the coming months.
Orders to the EU, more information on this can be found here of countries we are now shipping to.
We will keep updating this post with any changes as the information reaches us.
Order process at present:-
- Orders are being taken as per normal at this time, we are working to a 12 hour order processing time with most orders leaving us for next day delivery if ordered before 12pm
- DPD will text / email on the morning of your delivery, usually before 11am, giving a 1 hour time slot for delivery
In mainland UK we are using DPD as our delivering partner. DPD will send a TEXT / EMAIL on the morning of your delivery, this is usually by 11am.
At this time due to the volume of orders and parcels that the courier network is handling it is possible that orders which are more than one box can arrive at different times. To check if your order is more than one package you find on your DPD label if it is 1 of 1, or 1 of 2, or 1 of 3 etc printed on the label. If you have only received part of your delivery it is common for the remainder to arrive the next day, so don’t panic if this happens.
Saturday Deliveries and Timed Next Day Delivery
This service is currently suspended due to the increased demand on the courier network, so we had to remove this option from the website, we will bring it back as soon as they reinstate these services.
Change to order address
If a mistake has been made on your order address please contact us ASAP, as long as the order has not left us we can make any changes. If the order has been collected by the courier we will need to recall it and rearrange. This may lead to further delivery charges and a delay.
Royal Mail Delivery Option
If your order is under 600g customers are able to choose RM small package 1st class delivery. At present we are seeing delivery times of just a couple of days, however, in some circumstances it has been up to 13 days.

Brew Days – October 2021
We plan to introduce our brew days again from October 2021. First we will contact those customers who have outstanding vouchers to invite them to the first sessions, then any spaces which remain we will open to all customers.
Those attending a brew day it is important to follow our guidelines to help protect our team and the other brew day attendees. Anyone on a brew day will need to show proof of a lateral flow test being taken in the 48hrs prior to the day. The test should be taken at home and then recorded on the NHS app. Anyone not having done so will be asked to do one outside or will not be able to attend and no refund will be offered. Anyone receiving a positive result should inform us immediately and stay at home, you will be invited to move your date when sharing the result.
During the day there will points where you are in close contact with the tutor and other attendees due to the space constraints. There will also be points where you might be asked to where PPE (gloves, masks) as you move around the facility and these will be provided.
