A number of our trails involve farm visits where ground is uneven and where some distance will be travelled on foot and/or visits a facility where access may otherwise be restricted. Therefore, if you or a person for which you are booking a culinary trail or other service provided by Yorkshire Food Finder is of reduced mobility, blind or partially sighted you must contact us before making a booking so that we can confirm whether the culinary trail or other service is accessible all or in part.

Fees for the culinary trails organised and other services provided by Yorkshire Food Finder are payable in full at the time of booking unless prior agreement in writing has been provided to you by Yorkshire Food Finder. When Yorkshire Food Finder agrees to revised payment terms in writing, the amended terms constitute a revision to our standard Terms and Conditions and thus our contract with you.

Alternatively, you may receive a full refund.
- Between 42 and seven days before the event - Yorkshire Food Finder will use reasonable endeavours to fill the places you wish to cancel. If we are successful, you will be able to transfer to another trail or other service as if you were seeking to cancel your booking more than 42 days before the event (see above).

If you are ill or the illness of a close relative prevents you taking up your place(s) on a culinary trail or other service provided by Yorkshire Food Finder we will, at our discretion, consider varying our cancellation policy as set out above.
The cancellation terms set out above also apply to gift certificates sold to you by Yorkshire Food Finder.

If it is necessary for us to cancel a food trail, course or demonstration, Kitchen Social course or demonstration or provision of another service, Yorkshire Food Finder may do so subject to us offering you a refund of all fees paid. If we cancel an event, you may, at your discretion, transfer your booking to an alternate food trail or event subject to the payment of any additional charges applicable to the alternate. Where the alternate trail or other service has a lower price than that Yorkshire Food Finder has had to cancel, a refund of the difference between the fee applicable to the trail, course or demonstration booked and the alternate trail, course or demonstration or other service is payable to you by Yorkshire Food Finder.
