Terms and Conditions

In the unlikely event you discover your items are faulty due to our own doing then we will pick up and make any repairs for you as soon as possible, and in the unlikely event you discover a scratch in the paintwork on a chair or table then we will send a small sample pot of paint for any touch ups and this must also be reported to us within 10 days of receiving your goods. 

PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO THE FACT ALL OUR TABLES ARE HAND MADE AND BESPOKE TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS, WE CANNOT REFUND YOU, IF YOU SIMPLY CHANGE YOUR MIND ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR TABLE. If you need any changes to be made to your order after you have received it, you will need to pay for collection and delivery and will be charged for any alterations.

We recommend that you visit our showroom to see the tables before you order if at all possible. 

Changing your mind on sizes or colours for hand made tables is fine but as long as we haven't started making it (usually 2 weeks before delivery) in which case charges will be made.

Farmhouse tables are made from reclaimed old wood so please expect some minor holes, knocks, marks, cracks and dents here and there, however, some large holes will be filled with wood filler so it blends in. Sizes of all our tables are approximate only and may vary by a few centimetres. The pictures of all the tables on the website are just examples of what you can expect to receive and all Farrow and ball colours will be scanned with a quality alternative paint. Please note that due to the nature of the reclaimed wood, the tops may look slightly lighter or darker than that of the pictures.

These tables are full of character and are not ‘perfect’. The timber is reclaimed and there will be marks, cracks & splits, other blemishes and imperfections. The timber is not graded ‘A’ quality… it is carefully selected to be characterful as possible. 
The salvaged timbers used are from reclaimed timber, which will be variable in grain, texture and colour.  Knots, cracks, dark marks, rusty spots, unevenness within the planks and variations in colour are all part of the character of the table.
Each plank in the tabletop will be unlikely to be exactly the same in grain, colour or texture. Reclaimed timber may have nicks, saw marks, sanding marks, old nail holes and other various signs of its previous use.  Filler in a sympathetic colour may be used in areas also we may use dowels or blocks to fill larger holes or knots.

As the timber is reclaimed there can be slight movement, you may find that you need to pop a felt pad under one leg for example to address a wobble.
The tabletop is unlikely to be entirely flat and level…. you may find that in areas a dinner plate will (perhaps) not sit entirely flat.  Planks within the tabletop may be slightly cupped and bowed when you first take delivery AND this may occur over time also, and doesn't mean your table is 'faulty"
Areas of the table may have been heavily sanded creating rounded shallows and dips, these can also be found on the edges of the furniture.

Do not sit your table on a floor with underfloor heating when it is first delivered, the extremes of heat may cause sudden drying of the timbers in your table and this could result in cracking.  Extremes of temperature must be avoided for the first 8-12 weeks until your table has settled in.  If you use underfloor heating please be cautious and use it on a low setting for this first period


Please note that when chairs are waxed all over especially in dark oak, they may look slightly lighter in appearance to the table top, this is due to the chairs being made from beech and not reclaimed pine like the table tops, however we will try to get them to match as close as possible

Please note that we can only except returns on handmade and customised tables and benches if they are damaged or faulty and within 30 days of taking delivery. The lead time is approximate only. Please ask for more details. 

Payment options are either paying in full when ordering online or a 50% non refundable deposit paid via a separate invoice that will be sent to you. If 50% deposit is paid the remaining balance will be due the week prior to delivery. We will contact you to notify you when the balance is due.

    4. OUR GOODS
    4.1 Goods may vary from their pictures. The images of the goods on our website or in any
    other photographs or media are for illustrative purposes only and are for the sole purpose of
    giving an approximate idea of the goods illustrated thereby. You acknowledge and agree that
    any description or image which is given or applied to the goods:
    (a) is solely for the purposes of reference and does not constitute or afford the basis for
    any express or implied undertaking that the goods correspond with or conform to
    such reference;
    (b) shall not make the contract between us, a sale by description; and
    (c) has not been relied on you when entering into the contract.
    4.2 We cannot guarantee that the colour and finish of the goods shown on the website
    accurately reflect the colour and finish of the goods delivered, as the goods are made from
    natural and reclaimed wood.
    4.3 Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our goods are
    made with reclaimed wood, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements
    indicated on our website are approximate.
  • 4.4 Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are manufacturing the goods with
    bespoke measurements that you have given us, you are responsible for ensuring that those
    measurements are correct. You can obtain information and tips on how to measure by
    contacting us.
    4.5 If you do not specify any measurements at the time of placing your order with us, we will
    accept no liability to you in the event that the sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and/or
    measurements of the goods are not to your requirements, and we will not under any
    circumstances be liable to make changes to the goods as a result. See further under clause 5
    5.1 After we have accepted your order, you may make changes only in accordance with the
    terms of this clause 5.
    5.2 If you wish to make a change to (a) the colour finish of the goods and/or (b) any sizes,
    dimensions or measurements which you specified to us at the time of placing your order,
    you may do so provided that you notify any such change(s) to us as soon as possible and, in
    any event, no later than 14 days before the estimated delivery date which we give to you in
    accordance with clause 8.3 below.
    5.3 If you notify us of your wish to make a change in accordance with clause 5.2 above:
    (a) we will let you know whether or not the change can be made;

    the estimated delivery date and/or any other term of your order;

    wish to revert to your original order, whether another product might suit your
    requirements, or whether you wish to cancel your order in accordance with clause 10
    5.4 If you notify us that you wish to make changes to your order less than 14 days before the
    estimated delivery date of the goods, we will agree to them only if we, in our absolute
    discretion, think fit.
    Minor changes to the goods. We may make changes to the goods:
    (a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
    (b) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not
    affect your use of the goods.
    7.1 Where to find the price for the goods. The price of the goods (which includes VAT) will
    be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable
    care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However, please see
    clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order.
    7.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your
    order date and the date we supply the goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay,
    unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes
    7.3 What happens if we have got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best
    efforts, some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices
    before accepting your order so that, where the goods’ correct price at your order date is less
    than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price
    of the goods at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for
    your instructions before we accept your order.
    7.4 How you must pay. We accept payment by debit card, credit cards or PayPal.
    7.5 When you must pay. You must pay either the full purchase price or a non-refundable
    deposit constituting 50% of the purchase price of the goods at the time of placing the order.
    If a non-refundable deposit is paid at the time of placing the order, the remaining 50% of the
    purchase price will be charged to your credit or debit card following completion of the
    manufacture of the goods but prior to dispatch of the goods.
    7.6 Non-payment. Where you have paid a non-refundable deposit constituting 50% of the
    purchase price of the goods, in the event of non-payment of the remaining 50% of the
    purchase price, your deposit will be retained and the goods will not be dispatched for
    delivery until the outstanding amount has been paid.
    7.7 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please
    contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is
    resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums
    from the original due date.

    for any additional delivery costs that may be incurred.

    8.3 Delivery dates are approximate. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date,
    which we will aim to be within 6 - 8 weeks after the day on which we accept your order. All
    delivery timeframes are approximate, however, and the time of delivery is not of the essence
    of the contract between us, so delivery may occur outside of the estimated timeframe.
    8.4 We are not responsible for delays outside of our control. If our supply of the goods is
    delayed by an event outside our control, which shall include a delay by our courier, then we
    will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the
    effect of the delay.

    address to take delivery, we will contact you informing you of how to rearrange delivery.
    8.6 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange
    delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs
    and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact
    you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.

    the time that the goods have been delivered to the address you gave us.
    9.2 When you own goods. You own the goods once we have received payment in full.

    is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract.

    with specific measurements provided by you, pursuant to Part 3, clause 28(1)(b) of the
    Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013,
    you do not have an automatic right to end your contract with us, unless we have been in

    ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately

    lamps, you have a legal right to change your mind within 7 working days following on the
    day on which the goods are delivered. You must then return the unused product to us within
    14 days of notifying us of the cancellation and pay the cost of returning the goods to us. If
    you return the goods outside these timeframes, we are not obliged to provide you with a
    10.5 When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change
    your mind if you have ordered bespoke goods, such as farmhouse tables and benches, or

    refundable, unless there is a fault with the goods, due to an omission caused by us.

    comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a
    foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill,
    but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is
    foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made,
    both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the
    sales process.
    14.2 We are not responsible for any damage that is caused to the goods during transit of
    the goods to you.
    14.3 We are not responsible for any damage caused by you to the goods once the goods
    have been delivered to you. The goods are manufactured using reclaimed wood which may
    have an unknown history and you are responsible for taking reasonable care of the goods.
    We are not responsible for any damage caused by you if you have not taken such reasonable
    care of the goods.
    14.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the goods for domestic and private
    use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, we will have no
    liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of
    business opportunity.
    14.5 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful
    to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the
    negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent
    misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the goods and for defective
    goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
    How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information
    as set out in our privacy notice.
    16.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and
    obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if
    this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the
    16.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer
    your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in
    16.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No
    other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    16.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the
    paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that
    any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    16.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not
    insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we
    delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean
    that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at 
    a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to
    provide the goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
    16.6 Force majeure. Neither party shall be in breach of the contract nor liable for delay in
    performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under the contract if such delay or
    failure result from an event or circumstance beyond a party’s reasonable control. If the
    period of delay or non-performance continues for 4 weeks, the party not affected may
    terminate the contract by giving 7 days’ written notice to the other party.
    16.7 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These
    terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the
    goods in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in
    respect of the goods in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern
    Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Northern Irish
    or the English courts.
    16.8 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an
    independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having
    to go to court. Common ADR procedures include mediation and arbitration. If you are not
    happy with how we have handled any complaint, it may be possible for your dispute to be
    submitted to an alternative dispute resolution provider: please contact our customer service
    team to discuss this further. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for
    online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform
