Terms and Conditions of Business and Use
30th September 2015

If you want to buy wine from us or use our web site you can only do so on these terms and conditions, and by registering on the web site you are agreeing to be bound by them. Although they are written in small print, we hope you will agree that they are designed to be fair to you and to us. We may change these from time to time by updating this posting.

Faulty Wines – If you buy any of our wines and you find the bottle to be faulty. We will credit your account for the amount paid for that bottle, as soon as we have collected the wine from you, provided of course that you have only drunk less than half a glass from the faulty bottle and sealed it ready for return. If you have bought a mixed case of wine to which a case discount has been applied we will credit your account with a proportion of the price you paid determined by the proportion of the case contents the wine you don’t like represents.

Delivery – Standard Express Delivery is £15.00 per delivery address regardless of how many cases you order. We will deliver your wine to anywhere in the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland, the Highlands, Scottish islands, the Isle of Man and the Scilly Isles.). If you order 2 or more cases, they may not be delivered at the same time, but the delivery charge will stay the same. If your order exceeds £150.00 then we will deliver free of charge. Express Courier Delivery is also available upon request and is based on weight and your address per order.

We normally deliver Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 5.30pm according to your delivery instructions. If you are not there the driver will leave a card for you to arrange a more convenient delivery time.

Delivery times

All products listed on the website are subject to availability, and, if they are subsequently found to be unavailable once an order has been placed, you will be informed via email or telephone as soon as your order is processed by one of our office team. We will always endevour to offer an alternative.

Products ordered on the website before 9am Monday to Friday will be despatched and delivered the same day, unless notified of any delay by e-mail or telephone. If your order is placed on a Saturday, Sunday or a Bank Holiday, it will be processed the next working day.

We deliver up to 4pm Monday to Friday. We DO NOT deliver on Saturdays, Sundays, Bank or Public Holidays, Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. If your order is placed on a Saturday, Sunday or a Bank/Public Holiday, it will be processed the next working day.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU GIVE US YOUR BEST CONTACT TELEPHONE/MOBILE NUMBER SO THAT WE CAN CALL YOU TO ARRANGE A SUITABLE DELIVERY TIME. ALL DELIVERIES REQUIRE A SIGNATURE ON RECEIPT.

Please note, this is not a guaranteed service and all delivery times are estimates only. We are unable to guarantee any delivery dates or times as delays may occur that are outside our control. We will of course endeavour to keep you informed at all times via email or by telephone.

IF WE ATTEMPT DELIVERY AT AN AGREED TIME AND DELIVERY IS NOT POSSIBLE WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE ?5 FOR RE-DELIVERY UNLESS YOU HAVE GIVEN US PRE-AUTHORISATION TO LEAVE THE GOODS IN A SAFE PLACE. IF THIS IS AGREED IT WILL BE AT YOUR RISK.

For European and worldwide dispatches, we charge separately for postage, as specified elsewhere on this Website.

Stolen Wine and Breakages

Stolen Wine – If you give instructions for us to leave your wine outside your house or in a safe place and the wine gets stolen, sadly we cannot be held liable for this loss.

Breakages – In the event that any of the bottles in your case are damaged, please let us know within 7 days and we will credit your account with the price you paid for the damaged bottles or a proportion of the total case price representing the proportion of the case contents which has been damaged in the event of a case of mixed wines sold with a case discount.

If you have any queries regarding delivery please contact us at winestore@mrestaurants.co.uk
