Despite our best efforts to maintain fully accurate stock records, it may sometimes happen that we are unable to fulfil an order. In this case, we will contact affected customers directly to make alternative arrangements. You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.

All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.

Gift Cards and Gift Vouchers
Gift Cards are sent digitally via email and are valid for 12 months from purchase.
Gift cards can be purchased and used to pay for products from the online shop. The money loaded onto your gift card is only a pre-payment system; it is not a credit card, credit line or deposit account. No interest, dividends or any other earnings will accrue on the money loaded onto your gift card. Greene King will provide an e-gift card to the value of the money you selected. Your e-gift card will be sent to the email address provided with order and will be dispatched on receipt of cleared funds. If payment is not received your order will be cancelled. The monetary value on your gift card can be used as full or part payment for products but (subject to paragraph 6 Cancellation) cannot be exchanged for cash or refunded to your credit card or debit card. All money on your gift card will expire 12 months from last top-up or last use. You can contact email@example.com to confirm the balance left on your gift card.
You should treat your gift card as cash for any purchases from the online shop. You are responsible for any unauthorised payments using your gift card. Therefore please do not allow others to use your gift card. Greene King is not liable for lost, stolen or damaged gift cards.
Gift cards may not be sold, exchanged or used for any other purpose, except as specified in these terms, without Greene King’s written permission.
Greene King does not warrant or represent that your gift card will always be accepted. For example, in the unlikely event of a failure of Greene King IT and communications systems, Greene King may not be able to accept gift cards as payment during such a system failure.
Greene King reserves the right to refuse to accept a gift card or to limit the use of a gift card which it deems to have been tampered with, duplicated, damaged or which otherwise is suspected to be affected by fraud, misconduct or unauthorised use. Greene King may withdraw or cancel your gift card or take any other action it may deem appropriate if it suspects fraud, misconduct or unauthorised use of your gift card. The gift card shall become invalid once cancelled and you will not be able to redeem the balance on your gift card.
Greene King’s liability to you in relation to these terms shall under no circumstances exceed the final balance held on your gift card. These terms set out Greene King’s entire liability to remedy any defect or default in the gift card. Save as is provided in these terms, all warranties, representations, conditions and terms, whether express or implied, written or oral, as to the quality, condition or otherwise (including without limitation its merchantability and fitness for purpose) are hereby expressly excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. Notwithstanding the above, nothing in these terms shall affect your statutory rights.
How do I track my order?
When your order is ready for dispatch you will receive tracking information from our courier via email and text (subject to you providing your mobile number at checkout). Firstly, you will receive a pre delivery notification with the option to amend the delivery using the ‘Change It’ options sent following collection of the parcel. Then an estimated one hour delivery window notification on the morning of the delivery. An optional ‘You’re Next’ notification when the driver is one delivery away.
At every point in the parcel journey you will be provided with options to ensure you are able to receive your delivery through our couriers ‘Change It’ options. This allows the customer to collect from a depot, leave in a safe place, leave with a neighbour or change the delivery date.
Where the driver completes a delivery to anything other than the specified delivery address, a ‘Sorry We Missed You’ card will be completed and left for the customer. A notification will be sent confirming either the neighbour’s details or the left in your safe location.
In the event that the driver is unable to complete the delivery, including because there is no one available over the age of 18 available to accept delivery, a ‘Sorry We Missed You’ card will be completed and left. A notification will be sent confirming the card reference number and the link to the Manage My Delivery section of UKMail.com. The customer will be instructed to visit Manage My Delivery at UKMail.com, enter the card reference number and delivery postcode and select from the Change It Options available.
Leaving in a safe place or with a neighbour
Please add your request in the ‘notes’ section on the /checkout page when placing your order. Please note that if you request your order to be delivered to a safe place (unsigned for) you do so at your own risk. Our courier will only deliver to a neighbour who is aged 18 or older.
What do I do if beer is delivered broken or items missing?
Please check all goods before signing for them. If you notice the items are damaged then please refuse delivery from the courier.
Due to the nature of the product it is possible that the glass bottles in your order can break. If your beer has arrived broken or some items are missing please contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
