What if I have dietary requirements?

 

We're more than happy to cater to your dietary requirements, and all of our dishes can be adjusted to suit.

How long do meals last?

 

Your meals will last fresh in the fridge for up to four days. Our dishes are freezer friendly, however some freeze better than others. Baked items such as lasagne and cottage pie along with saucy dishes like curries and stews work best. Simply remove them from the freezer 24 hours before you'd like to eat and store them in the fridge to defrost.

What if I want to skip a week?

 

How often you order is completely up to you - we'll send you a weekly email reminder when our new menu is online so your next meal is just a click away.
