We send orders via Royal Mail. We endeavour to dispatch all orders within 48 hours and they should be with you in 2–5 working days.
We'll let you know via email when your order has been dispatched. However, if you’d like a speedier service please get in touch before you place your order.
Please note that as an independent store, we dispatch orders on weekdays only. All orders are hand-picked, wrapped, packed, and posted by Elle herself, in order to make sure it arrives safely.
Due to being a one-woman run company our business hours are 9am–5pm, Monday–Friday. Our weekends are reserved for family time so any emails sent after 5pm on a Friday will be responded to the following week.
We use recyclable materials for our packaging and encourage you to reuse or recycle them at home too. We have been known to add extra sweet and small treats to your orders, if this is something you'd like to opt out of, please do let us know when you place your order.
If you suspect a lost delivery please contact us quoting your name, order number and full address and we will look into it for you straight away: [email protected]

Please note when running discounted promotions, any orders placed without a discount code will not be refunded in order for discount to then be claimed. As a gesture of good will, Shrimp’s House may sometimes offer a credit note for the discounted amount but this is at our discretion. We are a small business and unfortunately it has a huge impact on us if we refund every customer who forgets to use a discount code. Thank you for your understanding.
