Buying Meat Online

Ordering meat online for the 1st time can be slightly daunting. Buying meat unseen can feel risky so we've included a list of our most commonly asked questions for you to have a look through. If you don't find what you are looking for, then get in touch or call us on 01592 780246.

Q: What is the minimum order value?

There is a minimum online order value of £25.  Please note delivery charges may also apply if your order total is under £100. These are detailed on our Delivery page.

Q: How much should I order portion-wise?

It is difficult to give firm advice, because people's idea of ‘enough’ varies so much. It will depend on the number of courses in the meal, the style of meal, the age of the diners, and whether or not you want second helpings or left-overs.

However as a general rule of thumb, we have allowed for 225g (8oz) for a main course portion of meat. For medium-sized boneless joints, allow 225-350g (8-12oz) to provide second helpings.

Q: When will I receive my order?

You will receive your order on a Friday between 8am and 5pm.
Each week, all orders placed before our order deadline of Thursday at 9.00am, will be delivered on Friday between 8am and 5pm.

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE. If you miss our order deadline and place an order after 9.00am on Thursday, your order won’t be made up and dispatched until the following Friday.

Q: Why do you only deliver on a Friday?

Call us old fashioned but Puddledub products are freshly made to order every day, each week. We rarely freeze our products as we believe delivering fresh is the best way to ensure you get excellent quality and taste and that’s what we are all about here at Puddledub.

Q: How will my order be packaged?

Your order will be packaged in a sealed polystyrene box that regulates temperature for up to 24 hours.  We pack your fresh meat products with ice packs.

Q: What will you do if I am not in?

When you order, there is a section ‘Delivery instructions’ at the bottom of the page where you submit your personal details. Please use this to fill in details of the safe place that the driver can leave your goods, remember that we can deliver to your workplace or to a neighbour.

If in doubt please feel free to contact us on 01592 780246 or email Tom before you place your order.

Q: How long will my order stay fresh?

The insulated box we sent your produce in, will keep your order at a safe temperature for up to 24 hours. Obviously the sooner you can unpack the products and get them into your fridge or freezer at home, the better.

Q: How much do you charge for delivery?
