Frequently Asked Questions

About us

Majestic Wine is proud to be the UK’s largest specialist wine retailer. Originally founded as ‘Majestic Vintners’ by Sheldon Graner in 1980, the first warehouse was opened in Harringay, North London. There are now almost 200 stores in the UK and another two just across the Channel in France.

What makes Majestic special? Our people.

We only employ people who are friendly, enthusiastic and refreshingly down-to-earth. The world of wine can be a little stuffy, but Majestic never is. We want you to feel relaxed when you explore wine with us, because that's how we like to work.

What’s more, we put our money where our mouth is – every single one of our store colleagues works towards being professionally accredited by the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET). This means you get informed answers to your wine questions, along with personal recommendations from people who enjoy drinking and learning about wine just as much as you do.

Guarantee & Returns

I would like to return some of the wine I have bought, is this possible?

Of course. Our return policy means you can return any unopened bottle to your local store for a full refund. All we ask is that they’re in a resaleable condition – the labels are intact and nothing’s damaged – and that you show us proof of purchase. 

What if you opened something and simply didn’t enjoy it? Wine is a luxury, and we’d never want you to pay for a bottle that wasn’t fully up to scratch. Whether it’s faulty, or just not to your taste – all you need to do is visit your local Majestic store, and they’ll be happy to replace the bottle with a personalised alternative of the same value. No quibble. No questions asked.

To find the contact details for your local Majestic store, please click here for our store finder.

Stores

How do I contact my local store?

If you would like to place an order or just get some advice from our knowledgeable store colleagues, you can find the contact details for your local store with our store finder.

What are your opening hours?

Our general opening hours are below, please be aware that these do differ slightly from store to store. To check your local store opening hours please use our store finder.

What is going on at my local store?

You can keep up to date with all the latest news and events from our stores by visiting their web pages. These are managed by our store colleagues and are a great way of keeping informed. You can find your local store page via our handy store locator tool.

You can also ‘follow your local store’ via your online account.

Do your stores have parking?

You can park free of charge at all of our stores except Summertown, Belgravia, Marylebone, Mayfair and Henley (opening late 2020).

Do you host tastings?

At Majestic, we think the best way to discover your new favourite wine is to taste it. We have tasting counters in all of our stores, where there will be a selection of wines available to taste every day. Our helpful store colleagues will always be on hand if you want any advice or guidance.

For those who want to learn a little more, we run 'The Wine Course' – a 2hr introduction to wine and wine tasting. Run in-store by our knowledgeable teams, this is a great way to begin your journey into the world of wine – and best of all it's free. You can book a spot on The Wine Course by calling or emailing your local store.


Ordering For A Business

Can I send out business gifts?

Please contact your local store or Customer Contact Centre for more information.

Can I set up a credit account?

If you wish to set up a business credit account with Majestic please email your local store stating whether you are an existing customer or not, and the type of business (charity/club, sole trader, ltd company etc.).

Do you sell wines to the trade?

Yes - if you are interested in using Majestic for your business needs please visit http://www.majesticcommercial.co.uk/.


Weddings & Parties

At Majestic we understand the importance of the wines you choose for your wedding or party. Luckily, we have a wealth of expertise to support you in your planning, with a whole range of services to support you before and on your big day.

Can you advise on the wine I should buy?

Of course - all of our store colleagues are working for their WSET qualifications, and experts in their field. We can talk you through all of your options and can also offer a free wine tasting store for you and a small group – just contact us ahead of time to arrange. You can also buy the wines you need from our Calais or Coquelles stores at an even bigger discount. Check out our Calais site to see all the great savings and find out more.

Do you offer glass hire?

We do indeed – and it’s completely free. Our glass hire service includes wine glasses, flutes and hi-ball tumblers.

All we ask for is a £1-per-glass deposit, payable in advance, and that the glasses are returned to us clean and ready for re-use. The deposit is fully refundable – all you pay for is breakages. And since you have paid a deposit, there's no time limit in which you have to return them.

To add glasses to your online order, place your order as usual, then contact your local store, quoting your order number. 

When you're done with the glasses, you'll need to return them to the Majestic store that delivered them (or that you collected from) – unfortunately we are not able to offer a collection service for glasses. If you paid the deposit by debit or credit card you will need to bring the card with you when returning the glasses. A deduction of £1 per glass will be made to cover any breakages or losses.

Glass loan is at your local store manager's discretion, is subject to availability, and only available to customers purchasing wines, spirits and beers in quantities proportionate to the number of glasses requested. Glass loan is only available in areas where we deliver direct from store, and not by courier.

Do you deliver the drinks chilled?

No - however, we do offer free chiller bin hire and sell ice. We can advise on the number of chiller bins and quantities of ice needed to keep everything chilled – but as a rough guide: Majestic chiller bins hold 18-24 bottles of wine or champagne or 2-3 cases (48-72 bottles) of lager when filled with ice and water. Filled with 3-4 bags of ice, drinks will be well chilled in 30-45 minutes and will be kept cold for several hours especially if kept in the shade. These chiller bins are available on a £15-a-bin deposit basis, refunded in full on return.

To add chiller bins and ice to your online order, place your order as usual, then contact your local store, quoting your order number. 

When you're done with the bins, you'll need to return them to the Majestic store that delivered them (or that you collected from) – unfortunately we are not able to offer a collection service for chiller bins. If you paid the deposit by debit or credit card you will need to bring the card with you when returning the bins. All we ask is that the bins are returned to us clean and unbroken.

Chiller bin loan is at your local store manager's discretion, is subject to availability, and only available to customers purchasing wines, spirits and beers. Chiller bin loan is only available in areas where we deliver direct from the local store, and not by courier.

Can I bring back unopened bottles?

Our staff will be happy to offer advice on quantities, but we also provide a sale-or-return policy.

Please arrange sale-or-return in advance when you are placing your order and that everything comes back in a saleable condition – we cannot refund bottles with labels peeling off, or beer in opened or incomplete cases.

We do not offer a collection service so you are responsible for returning the items to the store from which they were bought.

Sale-or-return is at your local store manager's discretion, and should always be arranged in advance with your local store.

Can you deliver to the venue?

To make things easier for you, we can deliver directly to your event venue. Delivery should always be discussed in advance with your local store, and we ask that you please give a name of who will be accepting the delivery, along with contact numbers for the venue. You can add any extra details about the order in the 'add a delivery message' box when ordering online.

Can you store the wine for us?

If you want to secure offer prices or plan ahead for a celebration, we can often hold the stock for you and deliver to the venue on the day of your choosing. Simply liaise with your local store team who will be happy to help.

Do you sell ice?

Yes - we sell bags of ice that we can deliver with the rest of your drinks.

You can request chiller bins and order ice when you order online, by choosing the 'I would like chiller bins and/or ice' option and entering how many bins and how much ice you'd like. Ice prices vary across the country, but the website calculates the most you'll ever need to pay – if the ice is cheaper locally, your local Majestic store will adjust your invoice accordingly before you are charged.

Ice is only available in areas where we deliver direct from store, and not by courier.


Gifts

Do you sell gift vouchers?

Majestic Gift Vouchers are the perfect gift for any wine lover, and are available in £10, £20 and £50 denominations from all of our stores in the UK. You can find your local store using our store locator. Gift Vouchers are not currently available to purchase online

Can I send gift vouchers?

How are your gift sets packaged?

  • Our courier safe packaging is designed to protect your gifts whilst in transit.

    • Standard Packaging – our sturdy yet stylish cardboard packaging protects your gift in transit to ensure excellent presentation. Most of our packaging is made from recycled cardboard, and we do not use polystyrene.

    • Wooden boxes – many gifts are available in branded wooden boxes for an additional cost. Bottles are carefully packed with shredded paper to protect them, and the box itself has a simple cardboard outer box to protect it in transit

What is a 'WIGIG'?

WIGIG stands for ‘when it’s gone it’s gone!’ Make the most of a great Majestic tradition – tracking down brilliant wines only available in small, one off parcels. Shop now.

If you’d like to keep informed of our latest offers, including our WIGIG parcels, just create an online account and make sure you tick the box to receive our communications.

How do I place a product review?

To review any of our products simply log in to your account online (or register if you haven't already done so), go to the page of the wine you'd like to review and click 'Write a review'. You can rate the wine out of five stars and tell us if you’d buy it again.

What is a 'Buy it Again' rating?

You're our most important critic. Our ‘Buy it Again’ ratings make sure we continue to buy wines that you'll absolutely love - you can help shape our range, and also read reviews from other customers to help you find your new favourite.

I am ordering from Scotland. How does that affect my order?

The Alcohol (Scotland) Act 2010, which came into force on 1 October 2011, disallows any alcohol promotion offering customers a discount for buying multiple products in Scottish stores whilst the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012 sets a minimum price of 50 pence per unit for all alcoholic beverages sold in Scotland. The Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012 which came into force on 1 May 2018 sets a minimum unit price of 50 pence for all alcoholic beverages sold in Scotland.

So that all our customers can benefit from the same competitive pricing, wherever a multi-buy price is offered in England and Wales, this will be the single-bottle price we charge in Scotland, unless such a price is beneath the minimum price threshold as outlined by the Alcohol (Minimum Pricing) (Scotland) Act 2012, in such cases the price will automatically be changed to reflect the minimum legal price in Scotland.

Accessibility

We are committed to making sure that our online store is accessible to all our customers. We have taken Priority 1 and Priority 2 of the W3C accessibility guidelines into account at all stages of the design and implementation process and are continually working to ensure these guidelines are met. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please contact us, and we will be pleased to hear your feedback.
