Our Simple Terms and Conditions
We have endeavoured to keep our terms and conditions simple, straightforward and fair for both parties.
In paying your deposit and confirming your booking you have deemed to accept our terms and conditions.
Pricing & Timing for Your Event:
The pricing for your party is quoted on a per head basis. This covers the all the food and agreed related services including travel and fuel, set up, clearing and packing away. This does not include the cost of Bar Services and/or extra Staff unless otherwise stated.
The quoted price for your event will be based on a pre-agreed schedule and time budget based on your specific party plans and requirements.
Our Staff costs are typically charged out at a minimum of six hours – unless agreed otherwise. We reserve the right to charge for the number of hours that the event may excessively over run the pre-agreed budget to cover the additional staff costs. For example, if your event over runs by more than one hour we reserve the right to charge for additional staff hours costs.
Additional Staff hours costs will be billed at £12 per hour for each member of staff at your event. We will not bill any additional hours if the delay is our fault. We will always endeavour to follow your timings for your event unless it is a matter beyond our control.
Guests running late?
We understand that party plans can be delayed due to factors beyond your control. Whilst we aim to be flexible with our timing for food service, should our time on site be extended excessively beyond the timings agreed we reserve the right to charge you for the additional staff hours costs at the end of the evening.
After hours service:
After hours services is deemed after midnight. If Paella Fella staff are requested to stay after agreed hours the client will be responsible for paying for the extra staff hours & after hours travel costs at the rate defined above.
Access & Parking for Set Up and Clearing Down/Exit:
Should access for set up, clear down and exit change beyond what has been agreed or planned, especially if it impinges our ability to set up and leave in a timely way we reserve the right to make an additional charge. Where a site survey is not undertaken or possible, the Client should provide sufficient information and detail, plans and or pictures of the proposed party venue location to assist us with our planning.
Any loss, breakages or damage by you or your guests to rental equipment that are incurred during the event will be billed directly to the client after the event.
