Returns & Exchanges

We really hope that you will be pleased with your purchase from Summerill & Bishop.

We care very much about the products we sell and the service that we offer. However, if you would like to return any items that you have purchased from us, we will be happy to replace a product or issue a refund  provided it is returned unused, unopened, in perfect condition (including the product packaging) and remains in a re-saleable condition.

Returns should be made within 14 days of your receipt of the goods. Returns made outside of the 14 day timeframe will be considered for an exchange or credit note. Please ensure that you check all items when you receive them and report any faulty or damaged goods within 30 days of purchase.

If you wish to return any items received from us, please fill out the returns form enclosed in your order and clearly mark whether you would like a refund or exchange.
All items must be returned unused, unopened, in perfect condition (including the product packaging) and remain in a re-saleable condition.
Pack the returns sheet with the items and send it back to:

Summerill & Bishop
100 Portland Road
London W 11 4LQ

We cannot accept liability for returned goods lost or damaged in transit therefore we strongly recommend that you obtain a certificate or proof of posting. We advise you to send the goods by Royal Mail Registered Post or similar, especially for high-value items, and have sufficient insurance cover.
We cannot be held responsible for returned items that do not reach us.

If you are returning goods from outside the UK you must attach a customs declaration describing the goods as ‘BRITISH RETURNED GOODS’ stating that products are returned as they are unwanted or faulty.  Any return forms included with your shipment, such as a CN23 or CN22 form (but not restricted to), must be correctly completed and attached.

Any costs incurred associated with failure to do so, will be deducted from the amount of any refund due.

Customers outside the UK are liable for any local taxes and duties levied in their own country.  Summerill & Bishop have no control over these and can take no responsibility for these charges. Reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of failure to pay local taxes and duties will be deducted from any refund due.

We will only refund the value of the items returned and basic delivery charges. We will not refund the costs of return postage. Should you wish to make an exchange you will be charged at the standard delivery rate.

Any refund payment will be made to the credit/debit card or payment account used to pay for the product and if vouchers have been used to pay for the product we may provide a refund in vouchers.
If you are returning a present, we have to refund the person who paid for it.
We are happy to exchange your gift but we will also have to inform the original purchaser.

Please allow at least seven working days for your refund or exchange to be processed.

Gift wrapping is not eligible for a refund.

Cancellation of an Order Prior to Dispatch

If you are a consumer, you have a statutory right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations (exercisable up to and including the fourteenth day after the day of delivery). You do not need to give us a reason for your cancellation, but you should let us know in writing as soon as possible that you wish to cancel, or call us on +44 (0)20 7229 1337. The easiest method of letting us know is to complete the model cancellation form below, with full details of your order, and to return it to customer services at

If you cancel your contract before we have dispatched the goods, we will refund the price paid for the goods and delivery costs to the credit/debit card or payment account used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the product we may refund you in vouchers.
Your legal right to cancel a contract starts from the date of our dispatch confirmation e-mail, which is when the contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the contract expires 14 days after you receive the products. This cancellation right does not apply to the non-standard products identified below.

Bespoke products
If you wish to place an order for bespoke, tailor-made or personalised products then you should complete our bespoke order form, available upon request. Your right of cancellation in respect of such orders ceases upon our acceptance of your order, which is when we will commence our services to provide the goods. However, we will provide you with a refund if the bespoke, tailor-made or personalised products are faulty or not as described. You should check any separate terms and conditions applicable to your bespoke order prior to completing your order.

Gift vouchers are available to be purchased via the site and can be redeemed against the value of in-stock products for a period of 12 months from the date of issue. Gift vouchers cannot be redeemed against postage or gift wrapping.

All gift vouchers will expire after 12 months from the date of issue and the purchase price of the voucher will not be reimbursed.
