Early Bird Christmas Offer 2023
Many of you won’t believe it but our Christmas orders start coming through in August!
You might be buying foodie gifts for family and friends or you might be organising a top-class Christmas spread for the big day. We kindly ask that you place your orders as early as possible; it allows us plenty of time to plan and prepare for our busiest time of year and avoids disappointment.
For those of you that are super-organised we’ve got a Special Smokey Early Bird Offer for Christmas 2023!
We deliver from Tuesday to Friday and you can choose any desired delivery date up to December 20th.
Read on for more information about our shelf life and delivery options.
Ordering in advance for your Christmas delivery helps us plan, to ensure that we have enough Traditional Oak Smoked Salmon, Oak Roasted Salmon & Honey & Mustard Glazed Christmas Hams (along with lots of our other delicious smoked goodies) ready to fill your festive table and make your festive entertaining a smooth and fuss-free experience.
We can send foodie gifts and hampers all over the United Kingdom, to delight your friends and family and provide easy, delicious meals and treats.
From our classic £58.75 Taste for Two Hamper, to our extremely generous Sugarloaf Luxury Christmas Wicker Hamper, there’s something to suit every budget and palate. We can send gourmet gifts directly to your recipients on the day of your choosing, with your message hand-written by us.
Please try to get your Christmas orders to us by late November/early December. Our Christmas order book generally closes by about 12th December – however last year it was even earlier than that. So please order early to guarantee smokey satisfaction & avoid disappointment!
When you place your order please select a delivery date between 13th & 20th December and all produce will be dated into the New Year although there are a couple of exceptions (see below).
To order our fresh Smoked Fish Pate please choose w/c 18th December and these items will be dated just past Christmas.
All of our smoked foods (except Gravadlax & Haddock both of these products will have 7-10 days) have a shelf life of at least 2-3 weeks in the fridge and they can all be frozen (except our Smokey Jo’s Pâtés which have a 7-day shelf life in the fridge).
Orders for Christmas Hams must be placed by 12th November as they are produced to order, we’ve unfortunately lost our wonderful pork supplier after working with them for over 20 years but have a new supplier just in time for those all-important Christmas Hams! They can delivered ideally between 11th & 14th December or 18th & 19th latest and will be in date for the New Year.
Gravadlax is also produced to order and needs to be pre-ordered by the end of November. It can be delivered at the beginning of December and will freeze beautifully – it doesn’t enjoy being knocked around in a busy fridge. Alternatively we can despatch your Gravadlax for delivery on 19th or 20th December – and if it’s needed for New Year then pop in the freezer.
Please place your order online and select your delivery date on the calendar at the checkout or just give us a ring!
Order as early as you can, our delivery slots closest to Christmas get booked up very quickly.
If you would like to collect a Christmas order from our Smokery shop we will be open for collections until Friday 22nd/Saturday 23rd December (please call us if you require collection on 23rd). The shop and office will have extended opening hours in the build-up to Christmas, including weekends so please check online for up-to-date times.
If you arrange to receive your Christmas order earlier in December it will freeze beautifully. All our produce is freshly prepared and vacuum-packed. Just remember to thaw it in good time and serve at room temperature for the best flavour.
Please visit our recipe pages for Smokey Jo’s serving suggestions and recipes and canapés to help you entertain during the festive period but most of all just have a fantastic Christmas!
