Delivery Info

Last orders for Christmas: 15th Dec 2020 - 10am. 

UK Mainland only. There are very long delays for deliveries everywhere, especially Offshore. We regret it is not possible to accept any orders from the Highlands or Offshore this side of Christmas as they would not arrive in time for Christmas.

Due to the current crises, couriers are not coping and deliveries can take up to 4 days. We had to bring the order deadline forward - there is no point baking if couriers cannot deliver it to you. This is totally out of our control. Please be aware next day delivery is not guaranteed this year. 

There are no deliveries between 21st Dec and 6th Jan 2021 as we are closed for a short break the week after Christmas.

Wishing all customers a peaceful healthy Christmas in the hope that things will get better in the New Year.

We deliver nationwide or you can collect from the bakery! We currently use APC for our deliveries as DPD failed to collect from us on the 3rd December 2020. 

FREE DELIVERY for orders over £50.00 placed online (UK mainland only, there is a delivery charge for Scottish Highlands & Islands). The minimum order value is £10.00.

Click and collect

Our bakery is located on the John Wilson Business Park in Whitstable, Kent. We do not have a shop as such, but you are welcome to collect from the bakery if that suits you and save yourself 7%! Please note – all bread is baked to order only. To avoid disappointment please do not come to the bakery without placing an order first. Please also note that you can collect after 4 pm on the day previous to the delivery date shown on the system. 

How do I know when I will get my order?

During the checkout process, a calendar clearly shows all available delivery days. You can place an order for the next available date or for a future date. We deliver on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for Mainland UK, Scottish Lowlands and Northern Ireland. For the Channel Islands, the Republic of Ireland, Isle of Wight, Scilly Isles and the Isle of Man we currently deliver on a Wednesday only.

Deliveries are left without a signature for the time being. Keep an eye out for your parcel at the time you are expecting it.

Courier companies offer a one hour timed delivery window, so no need to wait in. Alternatively, you can have your goods delivered to a neighbour or have it left in a safe place. Please ensure that your mobile number and/or email address is correct so as to receive regular updates from DPD and APC. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any losses if parcels are left somewhere without a signature. Please consider having your order delivered to a business address or a local shop.

If you have a repeat order you will receive an email reminder regarding your delivery. Please note that any deliveries scheduled for Tuesday after a Monday Bank Holiday will be moved along. If you would like to change your delivery date on a repeat order please login to your account.

Important Information regarding deliveries to Ireland & Northern Ireland 

Please note that currently deliveries to Ireland and Northern Ireland only have one delivery attempt. If you are not there to accept the delivery a calling card is left with the depot's contact number for you to call to arrange another delivery day. Currently, DPD cannot provide 1-hour time slots for deliveries in Ireland. Please ensure that your information shows a current mobile number so the driver can contact you if needed.
