When your delivery arrives, our driver will place the delivery at your door and knock or ring the bell, he will then withdraw from your property. He will wait to see you open the door and then leave. THERE SHOULD BE NO CONTACT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES both for you and our driver’s safety. Your payment receipt will be with your order.

What a strange world we have found ourselves in!

Whilst we all are trying to keep to the new phenomenon of ‘social distancing’ and staying at home, we would like to offer freshly home cooked meals, safely delivered to your doorstep and ready to heat and serve or freeze for later. Special diets catered for.

We will offer traditional favourites packed in single or 2 person trays with deliveries on Mondays and Thursdays – you just let us know what you fancy and we will do the rest.

It’s a new service and we are in this together so if you have any ideas of dishes you would like us to make please let us know.

Please ring or email with any orders or questions and we will be happy to help

If you can pay by bank transfer that will be great but cash or cheque welcome too

Thank you.
