"Very difficult to rate as the product ordered took over 4 months to deliver. During the delay I was kept well informed of the delay(s) as delivery dates were missed. I know the delays were the result of supplier delays - how close are you to your suppliers, do you know their lead times? You obviously hold no stock and the order to delivery took far longer than anticipated/knew/forecast/guessed. I would rate your Co as 3 Stars, not with standing the efforts of the people involved who communicated well and did what they said they would do. The product experience 4 Stars, due to being poorly packed and no Allen Keys. The product, after assembly, 5 Stars, very stylish."
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback, and thank you to your wife for the lovely email she sent us. I apologise it has taken so long for you to receive your order and I am very pleased you are happy with it. I have put £5 credit onto your account for any further orders with us. Thank you, Laura @ Drinkstuff.

"Good website, easy to order and very quick delivery in well packaged box."
Hugh Thomas, Mon 11th July '11
"This was the first time I had used Drinkstuff. I used the express delivery service, and the items arrived on time, however I was disappointed to find that half of my order was damaged due to very inadequate packaging. I rang immediately and was asked to email a photo of the damaged items. After making a follow up phone call, staff were very helpful and apologetic and sent out replacements by next day delivery and with plenty of protective packaging."
Susan Code, Sun 10th July '11
"Excellent customer service. Replacement of damaged goods were sent immediately, it was wonderful customer service."
Anne Bingham, Sun 10th July '11

Alana, Sun 10th July '11
"As we had just purchased an outdoor bar for our garden we wanted it be kitted out with all the items you would find in a real bar! Drinkstuff had it all and more! Fabulous selection of items to purchase at the best prices. Tracking and delivery was brilliant. All arrived in time for our party. Everyone was so impressed by the items we brought . Would recommend Drinkstuff to everyone. For any occasion! We will be back for more items."
Hayley Morris, Sun 10th July '11

Frances Meinert, Sat 9th July '11
"I was organising an important family event and needed more champagne glasses the same as the design I already had. I allowed 3 weeks which I thought was plenty of time to allow the order to be processed and delivered. Laura from customer services dealt with me and this is a positive thing that Drinkstuff does, she was my constant point of reference when dealing with matters. That was greatly appreciated so I did not have to go over the matter with different people. - I was not informed there was a problem with the order until I emailed. - I was told the order would not get to me on time -DISASTER - Other items were offered and obviously this was not what I had planned. - I now had no time to reorder from another company. - Laura did respond to my emails though she did refer to me by the name of Helen in one email and my name is Tania so there was a confusion and lack of a personal touch there. - Eventually it was sorted as the glasses arrived just on time for my event. - I did email Laura to thank her but I will not use Drinkstuff again. "
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback, and I am sorry I called you Helen?! Unfortunately our supplier let us down with this particular product which unfortunately lead to us letting you down. We did offer alternatives however luckily we managed to get you the product you originally wanted.
As an apology (and for calling you Helen!) I have put £10 credit onto your account for any further orders with us. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Miss T Paling, Sat 9th July '11
"Very quick service."
Kim Anderson, Sat 9th July '11
"Purchased the same product I could have gotten from Makro or ASDA for £100 less. That's ok, if it is delivered, and would probably have better customer service. Um no. One tub motor was faulty from start. Helpline response... Call Bestway Spas direct, not our problem... Product was delivered on time, was what it was to be, but the boxes were not factory sealed units.... Will not use again unless it is something simple with no moving parts...unfortunate."
drinkstuff says: Sorry to hear you have had a bad experience with us so far. When customers have problems regarding their spas, we give the Bestway contact number who produce the spas, as they will supply, in this case, a brand new pump. In busy periods, such as the summer, Bestway can be difficult to contact, however we always offer to call them on your behalf, so they will ring you. We agree that you have purchased the product from us so it is very much our problem and will always do our best to help you. If you are still experiencing problems, please do not hesitate to contact me. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Bill Hebner, Sat 9th July '11
"Unfortunately of the 3 beer helmets I ordered, one was missing the plastic part in the helmet that assists in holding the helmet on the head. This was extremely disappointing."
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback and I am really sorry that one of the helmets arrived faulty. Please email me direct at email@example.com, and let me know if you would like a replacement or a refund for the faulty helmet. There is no need to return the faulty one. I look forward to hearing from you, and sorry for any inconvenience caused. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Christina Smith, Fri 8th July '11
"I ordered a cocktail shaker for a party. The shaker and other items arrived promptly but the shaker was of really poor quality and couldn't even be opened. I emailed drinkstuff to tell them about the shaker and wanted an exchange but have so far not received a reply."
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback Helen, and I am sorry we haven't replied to an email. We reply to all our emails within 24 hours, therefore I am sorry yours appears to have got lost. I have refunded you for the cocktail shaker, and if you would like to contact me so that we can discuss one which may suit you better. Alternatively I can send the same one if you would prefer. I look forward to hearing from you, Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Helen Chease, Fri 8th July '11
"I'd never used drinkstuff.com before but was very impressed with the speed and delivery and customer service. Had various emails keeping me informed of the order status and also tracking facility...would recommend!!"
Simon Humphreys, Fri 8th July '11
"Fast delivery, well packaged items, good quality. All in all very satisfied with this company and would use again."
Caroline, Thu 7th July '11
"Although no complaints about delivery, which was very quick, my order was received broken in pieces and because I then had to wait for a replacement which again arrived very quickly it was then actually too late as this was a present. So my ony criticism is that more care should be taken in the packaging of goods, especially glass."
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry you experienced problems. As an apology I have credited your account £5 for your next order with us. I hope this helps. Laura @ Drinkstuff
Dee Griffiths, Thu 7th July '11
"My shot glasses I ordered came exactly as described, brilliant quality and safely packaged. The delivery day and time were emailed to me before with a delivery slot of between 2 hrs and they arrived at the exact time given. Can't fault the service."

"Got off to a shaky start; this was second time I have bought from this company and once again I was sent the wrong items. However not to worry as when you call up to ask what is going on, the service is fantastic and I received my items in the next couple of days. So I really cant find fault and would certainly buy from again. The items themselves I purchased are second to none I love them. Highly recommend you use this company."

"I bought Presence 4-in-1 Cake Stand & Dome and I finally received a 2-in1. The product is not the one which I ordered. It's not the same stand. I'm just disappointed, 2 days after my order the product is out of stock. Did they try to send me this one hoping i won't see the difference. I don't know."
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your feedback. As regards to your order, I have received an email from yourself - and as we sent the wrong item, and the item you ordered is out of stock, I gave you a full refund and replied to your email. We wouldn't send you the wrong item intentionally. Due to the high volume in orders, we have more temps which are still undergoing training. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.
SZPIEG, Tue 5th July '11

"The letter c in cyder on the glass is only partially formed. Therefore faulty I guess as it doesn't form the word correctly. I would like a refund if possible. The glass is brand new and unused."
drinkstuff says: Thank you Guy for your feedback. Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the glass that is faulty (as you ordered two different types) and I will refund you or send you a replacement. Whichever you prefer. Look forward to hearing from you.

"A clear easy site to navigate, product descriptions very good. Pricing was competitive with other sites and ability to use PayPal an advantage. Delivery information via courier was amazing, knowing to within an hour when items were due saved waiting around . Other sites could certainly learn from this system. Products were as described and packed very well."
David George, Mon 4th July '11
"Great prices, very quick delivery, amazing products."
Molly Brigg, Sun 3rd July '11

Dawn Willis, Sun 3rd July '11
"Ordered 6 glass dinner plates plus 25 colour changing drinking straws. Unfortunately the straws were very brittle and the dinner plates were packaged on top so everyone was broken. Other than that, happy with the plates. "
drinkstuff says: Sorry your straws were squashed Diane - I have sent replacements out to you today. Sorry for any inconvenience. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Diane Jackson, Sat 2nd July '11

Carole Atkinson, Fri 1st July '11
"Yet again good service received from Drinkstuff. Easy to follow instructions, quick delivery and care taken in packaging up the goods, given they were breakable. Until the next time ...... many thanks."
Mike, Thu 30th June '11
"This was the first time we had purchased anything from Drinkstuff. We found it was very easy to find what we were looking for on your website and to place my order was also very easy. The goods were delivered within a few days. Excellent buying experience - will use again!"
Graham, Thu 30th June '11
"I have only purchased twice from drinkstuff, but on each occasion the service has been excellent and speedy - despite the fact I chose the cheapest delivery option. Excellent communication from drinkstuff and confirmation of dispatch of goods."
Ian, Wed 29th June '11
"We have not been using Drinkstuff for too long, but so far the service has been exemplary and friendly, the range, quality and price of products does not seem to able to be matched. Help is always at hand, and so far we are enjoying being a customer. Purchasing products, from picking to payments are easy too. Attention to detail, personalised service are best next to none, and really make the difference. We are planning to purchase many things in the future from Drinkstuff, and have already recommended them to others. The addition of a shopping list would be useful (as at some large cash and carry sites) and also waiting for several months before having a credit account can be frustrating, especially when we do so already with over ten of our current suppliers many large national/international companies. But this is still understandable. We look forward to a long relationship with Drinkstuff, keeping us entertained."
Steven, Wed 29th June '11
"I'm yet to receive my order!! I emailed yesterday and again today but not yet had a reply from today's email. Please can you let me know what's happening with my order! I would really like this before the weekend as this was expected last weekend when I them for an occasion! "
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comment - I emailed you this morning as our courier service struggled to find your address and it was sent back to us. I have resent it back to you, this will be sent 1st class, and should reach you tomorrow. If it doesn't, I will offer you a full refund. As regards to previous emails; I have checked and we haven't received any other emails, although we have been experiencing a few email problems. I hope this helps. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Rachel davies, Wed 29th June '11

"I have been keeping a close eye on this site and have ordered a few times albiet in the past, but one thing stands out from the rest - reliability! These guys and girls endeavour to get your order to you as soon as humanly possible and i must say that i order with no regular frequency and thier orders come fully packaged for safety of the items (delicates like glass) and they arrive in a quick & timely fashion. Major thanks to everyone at Drinkstuff.com I'll be back !"
Anil Sethi Jnr, Tue 28th June '11
"Have bought from this company twice now and had fast efficient service both times. Would definitely use again."
Jean Heron, Tue 28th June '11
"Ordered on two occasions and although the staff at the call centre were very good, on both occasions my order was short. "
drinkstuff says: Thank you Lyndsey. Due to the high volume of orders, we have had more temps in, however we try our hardest to make sure errors do not occur, and our Customer Services team will work as quickly as possible to resolve the issue.
Lyndsey Hallam, Tue 28th June '11
"Overall the service was excellent but 1 ashtray was damaged on delivery.. For the price paid (approx cost of 50p per item) it was not worth trying to send it back and getting a replacement.. Delivery was quick and payment was fine."
drinkstuff says: Usually I would send you a replacement without getting the broken ashtray back. However this particular item is currently out of stock, therefore I have refunded you 67p for the ashtray. Laura @ Drinkstuff.
Dafydd, Mon 27th June '11

"I am absolutely delighted with the communication received, the helpfulness of the staff, the delivery speed and the quality of product received. I have no hesitation recommending Drinkstuff to my colleagues and using them again myself. Thank you."
Finlay Ross, Sat 25th June '11
"Congratulations on providing such a great array of products which is so highly complemented by your efficient ordering and delivery service. Many thanks."
John Jeffries, Thu 23rd June '11
"I suspect that an unfortunate hazard of supplying glass products is that sometimes glass can break, no matter how careful the transit. I contacted the sales centre and without quibble they sent me some replacements. I wasn't in to receive the replacements and contacted the sales centre to point out that I had arranged for Saturday delivery on the first order because I would be in. They arrived first thing the next Saturday morning. In my experience, many companies would have made this a really painful reorder & delivery situation. These guys had processes & personal service set-up that focused on customer satisfaction. I will be a returning customer and recommend without hesitation."
Niall, Wed 22nd June '11
"Delighted with products received. Slight hitch with contents of the order but this was rectified the same day. Have ordered again and even have my eye on one or two products for future purchase."
Kim Mikula, Wed 22nd June '11
"One of the glasses was broken on arrival, but a replacement was despatched immediately. Would definitely order again from Drinkstuff, great website, great customer services."
Ian Benson, Wed 22nd June '11
"I urgently needed 4 Traditional Glass Pint Tankards for a Saturday party. Ordered a set on internet Thursday for overnight delivery Friday. When delivered, although well packed, one glass was smashed. I reported this but was disappointed to find that a replacement could not be delivered in time for Saturday. The replacement was delivered early Monday."
drinkstuff says: We're sorry that you didn't receive your replacement glass in time Mike. Unfortunately our couriers only operate on week days.
Mike Newman, Wed 22nd June '11
"Prompt service at sensible prices. Excellent."
Rodger Smith, Tue 21st June '11
"2 of the 4 Heineken glasses I ordered were broken upon receipt. This could have been avoided by bubble wrapping the individual glasses rather than the inner box that they were packed in. Drinkstuff immediately replaced them however without any fuss, with individually wrapped glasses. In summary, the service was faultless, despite the postal damages, and I am delighted with the product."
drinkstuff says: We're sorry that your original order arrived broken Stuart. We have passed on your comments to our warehouse team to make sure this doesn't happen again.
Stuart Ockleton, Tue 21st June '11
"Excellent, order dispatched very speedily... loads of info received by e-mail upon placing order, very helpful sales staff, easy order tracking (not that it was needed as the goods arrived next day from memory). Wish it was all as easy as this.... will be coming back."
Paul Ancell, Tue 21st June '11
"This was the first order I have placed with drinkstuff... But not the last. I was delighted not just with the speed of despatch but also the excellent quality (and price) of the items I ordered. Delighted."
Gary Bracey, Tue 21st June '11
"Once again, the items were just as described, and arrive extremely promptly. We're well pleased, and would definitely order from drinkstuff again."
G Fryer, Tue 21st June '11
