      Hi Mike,
      Thanks for your internet order, yes, we totally agree with you! We are currently working on improvements to our site, including how many ‘clicks’ it takes to find our products. Sorry you experienced this problem. Your order will be leaving us today. Zest For Taste

    I tried to visit your store today (16th). Unfortunately there was no message on the window, about where you had moved to,

    I am sure you sent an email to me saying that you would be opening on Sundays in the summer….what date will that be?

    • Katharine Gasnier says:

      Hi Jan,
      Thanks for your email, when we first relocated to Drapers Yard there was mention that the Yard would potentially open on a Sunday over the Summer, however currently the area is still closed on a Sunday. If there is anything I can help you with please drop me an email, meanwhile if the opening days change I will let you know. Best Wishes, Katharine

    Have been buying your oils/vinegar for some time now and love them. They make all the difference to a plain salad. Promise to buy other goodies too. Keep up the good work. Will visit you one day. Best wishes Esmé
