Terms & Conditions etc

 - Minimum Numbers -

  • We do not apply a 'minimum number' to our lunches through Monday to Friday, but within Oxford we do need to add a £10 fee (to cover fuel, vehicle and labour costs) for meals of fewer than 10 people. This is a one-off fee intended to cover both the delivery & collection of empties after the event.
  • A minimum of 40 people applies to meals delivered on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Minimum numbers apply to venues further afield.

Other destinations:

The charge is based on a mileage calculation, of 50p per mile for the round trip. This is charged twice if we need to return to collect items after the event.

An additional £5 is added for meals of less than 10 people.

 - Cancellation Charges -

Sometimes it will be necessary for a client to cancel an event at short notice. To safeguard ourselves from significant financial loss, we apply the following cancellation charges:


  • 3 Working days before the event : no cancellation charge
  • 2 Working days before the event : 10% of the event cost
  • 1 Working day before the event : 25% of the event cost
  • Same day cancellation : Full cost is payable


We will order food items, receive deliveries and begin some pre-preparation before the event. The above are intended to be a fair reflection of the costs we will incur.
