I have used bcs a couple of times and been very happy with the service however this time I am very disappointed ,I would of thought ordering in November was plenty of time to get all my Christmas goody's,50% of my order never arrived due to the items being out of stock if I had been told this before it shipped I would have added to the order instead I paid full rate shipping for a near empty box, very disappointed, in the past they have emailed to ask if I want my order held until new stock was available they must of changed procedures.
I ordered a lot of potato chips (crisps), cookies (biscuits) and shower gels (um, shower gels) and they were packed together with amazing care and skill. Everything arrived intact, though it seems that the box got wet somewhere along the way, probably in the U.S., and as a result one corner of the very large box sort of fell apart and was awkwardly taped up, again probably by the USPS. The only suggestion I would make is that BCS add a bit more packing tape around the box to help hold it together in case this happens. I'm very pleased with my purchases and will be ordering many of the same items several times a year. Every British item I wanted is available from their site, unlike any other that I checked, and if you order a full box, the price including shipping is hard to beat.
It is a good site to shop but I didn't like the fact that many of the things were out of stock or couldn't be substituted for others. Had to contact the customer service more than once to make things work.
There is always a corner shop nearby, but the British Corner Shop is the best, no queues, friendly service and delivery to your front door step - what can you ask for more !!
the site was easy to follow, the ordering was very simple and the packaging was first class. its nevertheless an expensive way to shop BUT needs must when you're a Brit abroad! Thank you very much for such a pleasant experience!
It was a smooth experience overall: easy to choose and order, timely response from the warehouse and quickly and perfect delivery by the courier. I will definitely use the service again.
I am very pleased with the service and the products. Of course I would like to see pork sausages, bacon etc. things that we cannot get here in Greece. So please make an effort so that we can receive these items (and more refrigerated items). The point is they are sent to other Europen countries.
Apart from that I, and my friends, are very happy with BCS
Although we only use the British Corner Shop once or twice a year, it is a great source for the things we just cannot find in the shops here.
Having about 20 children to cater for (who all Love English chocolate), it makes Christmas gifts so easy, with a wide selection of goodies.
Items are always received in good condition, and the delivery service is prompt.
Makes life so much easier and pleasant to be able to get those few " can't live without" items.
J'ai mis du temps à commander, un peu méfiante (l'étranger, la qualité etc...). Et je me suis lancée...Je ne regrette pas cette commande. Elle est arrivée très vite et super, super bien emballée : chaque article emballée individuellement. Donc, pas de fuite ni de casse.
J'ai aussi apprécié le système de vérification du remplissage du carton. Mais je ne suis pas arrivée à le remplir, avec pourtant environ120€ de produits(et frais de port à moitié pris).
Les prix sont attractifs et bien moins chers que ce que l'on trouve en france en supermarchés ou boutique irlandaise.
Bonne communication aussi sur le suivi le la commande.
C'était ma première commande et ce ne sera pas la dernière.
Très bon site si on est amateur d'épicerie british.
I've used this company a few times now and I have always been very satisfied with the quality of the service. The website is easy to use, the product range is excellent and delivery is fast. It is obvious the company cares about giving its customers efficient and helpful service, from the chat facility to the graphics which show how to optimise the delivery costs. While many products are expensive compared to UK supermarkets, I'm sure that many expats don't mind paying extra to have their favourite products delivered to their door, particularly for special occasions.
This was the first time in many years of online shopping that I had dared to order food items that came in potentially easily damaged packaging (glass) and risk having them shipped to my home in a small Italian mountain village. I'm so glad I took that risk - my order arrived quite safely with individual items carefully wrapped and protected from damage. The website was easy to navigate, ordering process was easy, customer service helpful, fast and efficient. Bravo!
My last order was my 2nd order with BCS. I find the speed of service and the selection of product suits be to a tee. The attitude of the BCS staff is exemplary, and would recommend them to anyone looking for English food abroad.
I heard about british corner shop via a friend who had recently made an online order. I decided to make an order myself and I wasn't disappointed. The range of goods available was fantastic. I was able to order all my favourite treats from the uk at a really good price I was surprised also at the amount of goods I could order and have delivered to Canada for the base price of 30GBP. This included large tins of confectionary and tin cans making the parcel quite heavy. My order arrived within 2 weeks direct to my local post office and everything was individually bubble wrapped and carefully packed. I would definitely recommend british corner shop to a friend and will continue to use them myself in the future on a regular basis.
The products I received were exactly as described and were first quality. The deliverry wass as predicted. My only regret is that when I tried to order British bacon and sausages I found that they could not be delivered to the country in which I live.
Thank you thank you thank you.
Everything was perfect.
keep going this way guys !
Lots of products, fast delivery, all in all, super!
Thanks for the punctuality of my order but I'm sorry to say that of the tinned goods that I purchased, the majority were bashed. I hope that this has not altered the quality of the food.
My first order arrived on time. I was impressed with the packaging - no breakages when it arrived at my home in Italy. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a Jubilee Tea towel as a gift too. Thank you. I will not hesitate to order from you in future.
I`m so pleased with the experience I had with BCS. I`m so glad they offer so much variety in products and the quality in the handling and packaging was just top notch.
It didn`t take long for my order to arrive either.
I couldn`t be more pleased.
last Christmas I emailed several British food stores seeking English Christmas cake with almond past and icing but nobody exported to Canada.Then I found the British Corner Store who filled my craving for Mr Kipling etc The parcel arrived in a few days and everything was perfect. I have now told my daughter in Australia about this great store.Thank you so much for your great service Rosemary in Canada
Because I work in Africa I have become so dependent on BCS. It means although I cannot go out shopping I can still buy normal things as gifts and send to my friends and family.. It has been especially helpful at holiday times and helped me out of holes at the last minute when I have forgotten to buy presents. I have never been let down.
My parcel arrived in 4 days without a hitch and all the goodies were securely packed inside. We were able to order lots of items for the 11 pound delivery charge. So convenient!
There was such a variety of foods it was hard to chose, but in the end I selected a couple of favourites, even though one of them was clearly marked as arriving past its "best by" date.
The package arrived in time, was intact, and the items I ordered neatly and securely packed. I am very happy with my purchases (the "best by" issue is a non-issue, as far as I'm concerned).
I will order again!
Thank you, British Corner Shop!
I was so happy when my order arrived, being away from London for over 30 years, I wanted my grandchildren to experience what sort of Christmas I had as a child in London: Christmas crackers, selection boxes, mince pies the works. British corner shop made this possible. Thank you very much for making this Christmas a very special one for my grandchildren and especially for me. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. I shall be ordering again, everything arrived in tip top shape. Merry Christmas once more.
Very quick and good communication/delivery.
Good prices for a quality you like.
I was very pleased overall with my shopping experience and the turnaround time between placing my order and delivery to the USA was quite quick. However, I was very disappointed when the package arrived as it was beaten and battered very badly and there were gaping holes in the sides of the box. Your delivery company has let you down badly and given how much shipping costs from the UK I'm not sure that I would use your service again because of this.
Hi, well what can I say, the service was very very good. The site is well laid out and easy to pick the goods. I love the idea of being able to choose who delivers. I chose UPS. I did some tracking and they stated they would deliver . which they did on the day stated. You know it is nice to be able to buy English good via the internet. I have tried a few. but have to say this one is brilliant. There charges are good and not over rated and delivering to France is wonderful. I don't have problems with buying anything in France. but miss certain items, which the French don't do. so the British corner shop will solve all my problems. I shall be back. Thank you your goods were well packaged. and prompt service was something not experienced before. Thanks and would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and new year. Anne
I order these cookies (biscuits) from one that a friend brought me on his flight from Dubai U.A.E. The one he brought was Crawford's Bourbon Creams that had vanilla fillings. It tasted much better than the chocolate ones that I received in my order.
