Use of our Food to Order Service
You may order items from our Booths food to order Service and use our Website without registration. You are authorised to view and download our Website for your personal, non-commercial use only.
Booths reserves the right at any time without notice or liability to:
- Decline a new customer order at any time and at our sole discretion;
- In our absolute discretion, to terminate your access to all or part of the Services with or without notice including changing the availability or any feature or content;

- Change the Website or delete facilities in any way, at any time and for any reason.

Booths cannot guarantee that the Website will be fault free or that it will meet your requirements. Please report any Website faults by submitting a form on the contact us page.
Placing and Collecting your Order
The Booths Food to Order Website displays the earliest date each item can be collected based on a lead time and / or date range availability. Where your order contains several items, the longest lead time will apply. At peak times such as Christmas or Easter, an order cut-off date applies.
During the online order process you will have the opportunity to view your order in your basket before submitting it. You will see the items you have ordered along with the total price, deposit and remaining balance and your nominated collection store, date and time slot. These details will be confirmed in your order confirmation.
The order confirmation and your order number is not an order acceptance from us. Acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, take place when your order is available for collection on your nominated collection day.
All deposits must be paid for at the time of ordering. We regret that no refunds can be given if you cancel or do not collect your order on your nominated collection date. Should you wish to collect different orders on different days or at different times you will need to complete separate orders and pay a £20 non-refundable deposit for each order.
Ordered items must be collected from your nominated collection store on your nominated collection date and time slot. We will make every reasonable effort to keep your order until the store closes on your nominated collection date. If you do not collect it before this time your order will be cancelled and your payment forfeited.
Ensure you have a copy of your order reference or proof of identification when you collect your order. Once collected, you must proceed to the till to pay the remaining balance. Items are supplied at the temperature appropriate to that food.
All items offered on our Food to Order Website are subject to availability. If for any reason beyond our reasonable control we are unable to supply a particular item or Service, we will not be liable to you except to ensure you are not charged for that item. In the event that we are unable to supply the goods or Service, we will inform you of this as soon as possible.
Pricing, Descriptions and Product Information
The prices which you must pay for the goods or Services that you order are set out in our Booths printed collateral and on this Food to Order Website. Our printed collateral and Website contain a large number of items and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods or Services listed may be incorrectly priced. If the correct price is higher than the price stated, we are under no obligation to supply the goods or Services to you at this price and will inform you as soon as possible to give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled.
The prices quoted on this Website apply only to goods and Services sold via this Website. We will from time to time change the prices quoted on this Website, but this will not affect contracts that have previously come into force.
Ordered items must be collected from your nominated Booths store on your nominated collection day. All time slots are subject to availability.
All prices are shown in £s sterling and include VAT where applicable.
Although we will take all reasonable care to ensure that all descriptions and details of goods appearing on our Website are correct at the time when the information was inputted onto the system, the information appearing on our Website at any time may not reflect the exact position at the moment you place an order. Content is gathered from various sources and although we believe it to be accurate at the time of publication, we accept no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information. Product information in relation to food and drink is constantly being reformulated, so ingredients, nutrition content, dietary and allergens may change. You should always read the product label and not rely solely on the information provided on this Website. It is therefore essential that you verify all such information directly with us before taking any action in reliance upon it.
All measurements, weights and sizes are approximate and subject to availability. We will endeavour to supply any items within the required weight group, however due to natural farming methods used, the weights of free range birds may vary.
Images of items on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we’ve made every effort to display colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the items. Your items and packaging may vary slightly from those images.
The vintage of wines displayed in images may differ from the vintage of items sold, images of items are for illustrative purposes only. Please refer to the product description which sets out full details of the product, including vintage.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure that any advertised vintage is the one you receive on receipt of your order, we cannot guarantee vintage. However, you are still able to return the wine if you are not satisfied. We will refund the value of the bottle providing we are notified within the specified time period.
It is the customers sole responsibility to check and verify the accuracy of their order prior to submission. Booths take no responsibility for any missing characters, spelling and / or grammatically errors as entered by you, the customer during the order process.
The first letter of each personalised word will be capitalised, regardless of how it is entered. The first line of the message is mandatory, the second line of the message is optional. There is a character limit of 17 characters (including spaces) in line one and 13 characters (including spaces) in line two. If you require any assistance in placing your order please contact our customer care team or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the team will gladly assist.

You agree by placing an order to take sole responsibility for any personalised message entered. Booths reserves the right to cancel any order without liability to you in the event of any such objectionable message.
We require immediate payment when you order goods from our Food to Order Website. If you do not collect your order on your nominated collection date then your payment will be forfeited.
Online payment may be made with a valid credit or debit card acceptable to us. The address at which the card is registered must be the same as your billing address. If you order in-store, please pay for your order at the designated till. Any other purchases must be paid for at our checkouts in the normal way.
All transactions are processed by our chosen payment provider Worldpay via their secure online gateway. All payments are encrypted using 128 bit SSL encryption. To ensure your credit or debit card is not being used without your consent, all transactions are subject to fraud screening, validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. Worldpay will validate your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting our Terms and Conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency.
All payment details are securely stored on Worldpay’s servers. Booths can access and view the transaction by transaction ID in order to give partial or full refunds. At no time are we able to view or access complete payment details.
Worldpay complies with the Electronic Commerce Directive. Terms and Conditions, privacy and security policies can be located at Worldpay.
Booths gift vouchers may be used in store as payment. They may not be used for payment online.
Ordering and Information Security
To purchase goods from our Booths Food to Order Service you must be over 18 years of age and a UK resident. You must give us your real name, address, email address and any other details that we may require to process your order. You must advise us immediately if you believe or suspect that any passwords or security information provided by you are compromised.
We sell items containing intoxicating liquor. For clarity, a drink containing alcohol is classified as intoxicating if it contains more than 0.5% of alcohol by volume. Vintages, labels, closures and alcohol by volume may vary. Pursuant to the Licensing Act 2003 it is an offence for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor subject to a maximum fine of £1,000 or for any person over the age of 18 to buy intoxicating liquor on behalf of any person under the age of 18, subject to a maximum fine on conviction of £5,000 or 3 months imprisonment.
We are committed to upholding the legal and social obligations as a retailer of intoxicating liquor. To achieve this we have a number of control checks throughout the order, distribution and collection process both in store and online. In accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to provide truthful and accurate information and act in accordance with the Licensing Act of 2003 or where applicable the Licensing Scotland Act 2005.
We will never contact you and ask you to reveal your security details nor will we ask anyone else to do so on our behalf. Any such request is likely to be fraudulent and you should report it to us immediately.
We may check your order details to ensure they are correct and may cancel your order if we suspect or believe that you have deliberately provided incorrect information.
Order Amends, Cancellations, Returns and Refunds
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, a ‘perishable’ product, is any product (food, wine, grocery, etc.) which has a ‘use by’, ‘best before’ or ‘BBE’ date stamped on the product which expires 6 weeks or less from the date of collection.
Please note that your order, dependant on order date may begin processing immediately on order placement. Therefore, it may not always be possible to cancel or amend your order. To request a cancellation or change, please contact our Customer Care team on 0800 221 8086.
The right to cancel your order under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 does not apply to goods which are:
- Liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly
- Sealed and not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons
- Dependent upon fluctuations in financial markets which we cannot control
In the unlikely event that your order is defective or poor quality or does not match its description, please contact our Customer Care team for further instruction.
Each product is sold subject to its product description which can be found on the relevant product page. We reserve the right to ask you to send us reasonable evidence of any product affected by such issues.
To receive a refund of an affected perishable product, you must notify us of any such issues before the expiry of the ‘use by’, ‘best before’ or ‘BBE’ date stamped on the product. We may reduce your refund of the price to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a store.
If the defective product is returned to store, a refund will be processed using the same payment method used by you when placing your order. Any refund to your payment card will be credited to your account within 7 days.
We may cancel a contract under these terms and conditions immediately, by giving you written notice of termination, if:
- you fail to pay, on time and in full, any amount due to us under contract; or
- you commit any breach of contract
We may cancel a contract if we are prevented from fulfilling an order by any event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation any unavailability of raw materials, components or items, or any power failure, industrial dispute affecting any third party, governmental regulations, fire, flood, disaster, riot, terrorist attack or war. All monies paid will be refunded to you in full.
We regret that Booths cardholder benefits do not currently apply to Booths Food to Order Service (orders.booths.co.uk).
