    1. Alcohol and Cigarettes

    2. Pursuant to the Licensing Act 1964, it is an offence for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor, or for any person over the age of 18 to buy intoxicating liquor on behalf of any person under the age of 18. Cigarettes are not for sale to minors under the age of 16. Orders containing either alcohol or cigarettes can therefore not be accepted from minors.

    3. Payment

    4. Once your order has been accepted, this represents an agreement between you the customer and the restaurant. The restaurant has sole responsibility for this order. Cash payments are made directly to the restaurant fulfilling the order. If you have chosen to pay with credit or debit card on the Site then the transaction is processed by hungryhouse.com as an authorised agent of the restaurant.

      All prices are inclusive of VAT and quoted in British (Sterling) Pounds.

      Delivery and/or card charges are calculated per order and based on the policy of the individual restaurant. Any delivery charges or card fees will be displayed clearly in your Order Summary.

      Prices are subject to change and all goods are subject to availability.

    5. Cancellation

    6. You have the right to cancel an order up to the point the order is sent to the restaurant. Normally, this is approximately 45 minutes before the time you requested delivery or collection of the order.

      Members can cancel an order via their Order History, while guests can cancel an order by contacting hungryhouse via live chat or by phone.

      While every effort is made to ensure that accurate pricing and descriptions are maintained, we reserve the right to cancel any order that is based on inaccurate information.

      An order may be subsequently cancelled by a restaurant after you have received an SMS stating the order has been accepted. hungryhouse.com and our partner restaurants reserves the right to cancel any order, before or after acceptance, and will notify you immediately of any such cancellation.

      Exclusion of Right of withdrawal

      You have no right to withdraw your food order towards the restaurants, if and when it concerns the delivery of goods, which

      a) are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly, or
      b) are made to the consumer’s specifications or clearly personalized.

      Deviating agreements have not been made between you and the restaurants.
  21. Customer Ratings
  22. The ratings contained on this Site are for informational purposes only and do not constitute advice. Nor should you rely on ratings to make (or refrain from making) or take (or refrain from taking) any action. Ratings are the opinions of customers who have ordered through the Site, and any statements, advice or opinions made by such customers are those of such customers only.
  23. Taste Tests

  24. Each Taste Test offer provides a member with a discount on their customer's first purchase only from a participating restaurant. The rate of discount offered by participating restaurants may differ on a restaurant by restaurant basis (20% is an indicative figure). The actual discount on offer will be clearly displayed alongside the search results of participating restaurants.

    Rates of discount may change without notice, and the offer may be withdrawn either from individual restaurants or from the whole of hungryhouse.com without prior notice and with immediate effect. In such circumstances, all remaining discounts will be void and no compensation will be due.

    The offer is available to hungryhouse.com members only, and can only be claimed by ordering through hungryhouse.com. Only 1 taste test may be used per order, and the offer is non-exchangeable. The offer may not be combined with any other promotional rate offer. Additionally, the offer may not be available with certain items on a restaurant's menu - typically, but not limited to the normal "specials offers" (also sometimes referred to as "meal deals") which can be ordered from some participating restaurants.
  25. Loyalty Stamps
  26. Members of the Site have the opportunity to collect loyalty stamps when ordering from participating restaurants (indicated by the presence of a special icon).

    A loyalty stamp is earnt when an order is placed with a participating restaurant on the Site and the order is Accepted and filled by the given restaurant. Stamps are collected against individual restaurants, so a stamp from restaurant A applies only to restaurant A, and may not be redeemed at restaurant B, or any restaurant other than restaurant A.

    You may earn a maximum of 1 stamp per restaurant per day. Once you have collected a total of 5 or more stamps against a single restaurant, you are able to exchange them for a 50% discount on your next order from that restaurant. Please note that whilst you can earn stamps on any day of the week that you order, they can only be redeemed Monday - Thursday.

    Rates of discount may change without notice, and the offer may be withdrawn either from individual restaurants or from the whole of the Site without prior notice and with immediate effect. In such circumstances, any discounts due and stamps collected will be void, and neither the restaurants nor hungryhouse.co.uk may be held liable for any losses incurred as a result.

    Stamps have no cash value. The offer is non-exchangeable, and may only be used as described in these Terms of Use.
