Delivery Information

UK delivery
We use Royal Mail to deliver the Tipple Tails cakes; all prices include second class postage, however, if you would prefer to send your parcel first class we have several first class options to choose from to ensure that you receive your cake as soon as possible:

If you have popped out, the postman will leave a ‘something for you’ card so that delivery can be re-arranged or alternatively you can pick your parcel up from your local post office depot. If you can’t pick up your mail, someone else can do it for you – all they need to do is take proof of your identity and address.

Dispatch
If we receive your order before 12pm (UK Standard Time) we’ll pop it in the post the same day. If we get your order after 12pm, it will leave our kitchen the next working day. If for any reason we’re not able to do this we’ll get in touch with you by email to offer you a different product, a later delivery date, or, if you’d prefer: a refund. And just so you know, we don’t send out any items at the weekend or bank holidays and we are closed between Christmas and New Year.

International delivery
Delivery outside mainland UK may be possible by special arrangement but an additional delivery charge will be payable. If you require delivery outside mainland UK, please get in touch on 0114 232 2154 or email us at info@reallygreatfruitcake.co.uk so that we can chat this through with you and help you place the order.

A note about Import Duty
If you do wish to order goods from us for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before getting in touch.
