Delivery & Returns

We work with a third party courier, DPD and once a shipment is created for your order you should receive delivery notifications from DPD directly. DPD will usually allocate an estimated 1 hour delivery time-slot on the morning of your scheduled delivery (usually before 11am). Deliveries in Scotland may be made slightly later in the day. Using your individual tracking number, you can track your order here. If there are any issues, please do contact our Customer Experience team who will try to assist you further.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate collections.

Made In Oldstead boxes are delivered in wool-insulated chilled boxes by our third-party courier DPD, between 7.30am – 7.30pm on the day of delivery.

While we aim for delivery of all our food boxes on your selected delivery date, this cannot be guaranteed. We work with a third-party courier and cannot be held responsible for any delays outside of our control. If delivery cannot be made on your selected delivery date, DPD will attempt to make a delivery the next day.

We will always aim to contact you where possible to let you know and take steps to minimise the delay.

Currently, DPD can deliver our food boxes to most UK mainland postcodes, however this unfortunately excludes Northern Ireland, anywhere in the Scottish Highlands, Islands and Borders as next-day delivery is unavailable. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you are unsure if our third-party courier can deliver to your postcode area, please contact our customer experience team by emailing: enquiries@madeinoldstead.co.uk

Items purchased from our shop can be shipped with either Royal Mail Tracked 48 Service (£5) or DPD, Next -Day (£8).

New menus will now be released every few weeks and could run for around 3-6 weeks which means that delivery dates may fall over two different months instead of being available for the entirety of one month at a time. Applicable delivery dates are listed on each menu page.  We’ve made this change so that we can offer you a wider variety of menus more frequently.
