Cleaning, packing and returning
The crockery is vintage and very delicate, all we ask is that, after use please remove all food from the plates, and rinse the teapots and tea cups with cold water to remove drink residues, and the repack the china back into the wicker hampers provided. Please do not put any of the china in a dishwasher, as this is not suitable for vintage china and causes fragile items to crack and the paintwork to fade.
Granny's China Cupboard want you to be 100% satisfied with our service. In the unlikely event that you are not happy, please contact us immediately either by email or telephone, in order that we can quickly resolve any issues.
