You can pay by using any of the following cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Visa Delta, Visa Electron, Maestro/Switch and Solo.

CANCELLATION: You may cancel your order for any reason whatsoever within 7 working days of receipt of goods provided ALL OF THE BOTTLES ARE UNOPENED AND INTACT. A refund excluding return postage and packaging will be given within 30 days from the date you notify us of the cancellation. In order to cancel your order you must notify us in writing to the Manager, Taylor’s Fine Wine, 408 Richmond Rd, Kingston Upon Thames, KT2 5PU.
DELIVERY: Local delivery can be arranged free of charge. For Nationwide delivery we use a reliable courier service and offer a next working day delivery (Monday-Friday) service, if required. All next working day orders must be received by 12.30 pm so that we can process them for delivery for the following day. Whilst every effort is made to meet next day delivery requests, on occasions the couriers fail to meet this service, sometimes due to remote area deliveries or where addresses are unable to be found. Please note that orders cannot be left unless the carrier can obtain a signature or we have detailed instructions of where the consignment can be left (please use the "special delivery instructions" box). If unable to deliver, the carrier will leave a card with a phone number so another delivery day can be arranged. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect delivery information provided by customers. If an address or post code is wrong and we have to redirect the parcel to an alternative address, there is a £10 redirection charge applicable (this will be charged to your credit card).
BREAKAGES & SHORTAGES: If there are breakages we will refund the cost of the broken bottles to your credit card or send replacement bottles. We will refund any item that is received broken. PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO CHECK THE NUMBER OF PARCELS YOU ARE SIGNING FOR - WE CANNOT REPLACE WINES THAT HAVE BEEN SIGNED FOR BUT NOT ACTUALLY RECEIVED. Each consignment of goods should be carefully checked upon delivery to make sure that it is intact and in full. Claims for breakages will only be accepted if we are notified within 24 hours of delivery and the damaged products and their packaging are kept for inspection. The courier must be informed of breakages or shortages at the time of delivery. We will not accept any claims for breakages or shortages unless they are stated on the courier’s documentation. Important Notice: Upon Delivery Although the courier should advise us if there are any breakages, it's still very important that you let us know as soon as possible of any stock damage once received so we can investigate with the delivery operator and source replacement wine for you. As you can appreciate to prevent fraudulent damage claims we need to be made aware of damage immediately, thus we must be notified via e-mail or phone within 24 hrs
RETURNS: When a wine is corked or faulty we will gladly offer a replacement or credit on the return to Taylor’s of the bottle in question.
