*Please note orders containing cream, cheese, scones or pasties placed on Friday after 12pm will be dispatched on the following Monday to ensure they arrive fresh.

This, however, cannot be guaranteed and may take up to 3 working days.

All orders received before 12pm Monday to Friday will be available for same day dispatch. Orders placed on Saturday and Sunday will be dispatched on Monday (excluding Bank Holidays).

Fresh & Frozen Produce

We do not recommend fresh items to be sent for a Monday delivery as they leave our premises on a Friday and will be in transit or at a holding depot over the weekend. In general, most bakery items should be consumed within 7 days of the dispatch date and also cream within 7 days. As for pasties, as we send these out frozen these need to be cooked within 72hrs of dispatch. Of course the BBE dates do vary but the above should be considered prior to your commitment to buy. If you are in any doubt, please contact us prior to ordering.

Will I need to sign for my order?

A signature will be required on delivery unless you have given alternative instructions. If the package cannot be delivered, our couriers will try again the next day. A total of three delivery attempts will be made.

Delivery Instructions

In the unlikely event that the delivery is delayed, due to no fault of our own, Simply Cornish Hampers cannot accept responsibility. If you have an email address we will contact you with a parcel tracking number so you can track the parcel to avoid any potential problems with delivery and to avoid disappointment. You may also receive a text message from the courier if you have provided us with a mobile number. The couriers are responsible for Goods in Transit but if for any reason the couriers misplace a parcel, Simply Cornish Hampers will offer you a complete replacement.
