6. The prizewinners will be decided by Boswells. Boswells will not enter into correspondence about the choice of winners. The prizewinners will need to respond within two weeks of being contacted by email; otherwise the prizes will be awarded to another correct entrant selected at random.

7. The promoter reserves the right to amend the specification of the prizes or offer alternative prizes of equal or greater value.

11. The right is reserved to terminate or withdraw this contest at any time.

12. Boswells assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen, delayed, damaged or misdirected entries or for any failure of the website during the promotional period, for any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers, access providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any email or entry to be received by Boswells on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or any website, or any combination thereof including any injury or damage to an entrant's or any other person's computer related to or resulting from playing or downloading any material in the promotion. Boswells reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the email portion of this contest should a virus or bug or other cause beyond the reasonable control of Boswells corrupt the security or proper administration of the contest. Any attempt to deliberately damage any website or undermine the legitimate operation of this promotion is a violation of criminal and civil laws, and should such an attempt be made, Boswells reserves the right to seek remedies and damages to the fullest extent permitted by law, including criminal prosecution. Entries are subject to verification and will be declared invalid if they are illegible, mechanically reproduced, mutilated, forged, falsified, altered or tampered within any way. Entrants agree to abide by the Contest Rules and the decisions of the independent judging panel, which are final.

13. Entries must be submitted by the named entrant (or their parent/guardian for children aged 16 or under) and will be invalid if found to come from a third party. Multiple entries from a single source (e.g 'competition entry' website/company) will be disqualified.

14. For name/county of prize winners, please send a stamped addressed envelope marked Boswells, 1-4 Broad St, Oxford, OX1 3AG. No entries should be sent to this address.

15. Entry to the competition is conditional on acceptance of these terms and conditions.

16. The email address you provide to enter the competition will be used by us to contact you if necessary, and will not be shared with other companies. Boswells will only use your email address in compliance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and in accordance with our privacy policy.


Customer Reviews and Ratings policy

To be able to post reviews you must either have a website Login or be prepared to leave a name and email address (this will not be used except to email you your review discount reward or contact you about the review if necessary).

Your First Name will be used on the review.

Writing a review is a great way to share your experience thousands of other users. You'll appreciate there need to be a few ground rules, some are obvious, some are to save us from being sued and some are to ensure your review gets read again and again. Reviews are checked before they appear on our website. Any that don't follow these rules will be removed and will not qualify for any promotional offers we may run associated to leaving reviews.

Reviews will be visible not only to users of the Boswells Website but the content may appear on search engines and other content aggregators.


  • Make your review of the product NOT the entirely the service you have received from Boswells when buying it. This can be mentioned, but the majority of the review needs to be about the product. Even though we love getting feedback, it IS a product review! If you only want to review us may we sugggest doing so on Google, Facebook, or Yelp.
  • You don't have to have bought the item from us but you do need to be able to give an honest opinion, positive or negative about the product.
  • Point out what you disliked or liked. Saying something is great is not as helpful as saying why you think it is great. Also because we are giving a discount reward for the review we do expect users to leave more than a simple statement or one word review. A good rule of thumb is whether you would find what you have written useful in trying to decide whether a product is right for you.
  • Please use only the English language in your reviews.


  • Use profanity, prejudiced language or terms of abuse.
  • Repeat or make potentially libellous comments.
  • Mention web addresses, emails or phone numbers.
  • Post text you've not written.
  • Post material that is deliberately intended to upset other users.
  • Make the review entirely about Boswells or our service (as mentioned above).
  • Make a one word review or short statement just to get a review discount. We won't supply it which would be a shame!


We also require reviewers to rate the item at the same time as this gives an overview of the customer opinion. Ratings guide:

5 stars - Excellent - I would recommend this without reservation.

4 stars - Really Good - I would strongly recommend this.

3 stars - Good - I would recommend this.

2 stars - Indeterminate - The Good and bad aspects combined mean this is not actively recommended.

1 stars - Bad - I would not recommend this.


Our Rate & review Emails

30 days after a purchase has been completed we will email you to see if you are interested in leaving a review. This email is included in correspondence about you order and is separate from our mailing list system. 

We, and other users of the site really appreciate your reviews and we look forward to reading them.

Any agreement to host an event, made in writing between Boswells and a third party organiser and stating a mutually-agreed time and date, is considered a binding contract, subject to the following terms and conditions.

It is the organiser's responsibility to disclose in full to Boswells all details relevant to the event, and to make Boswells aware of any legal action taken, or threatened, against person, company or product related to the event, before an agreement to host the event is made. Failure to do so will be considered a breach of contract, and Boswells reserves the right to reschedule or cancel an event without prior notice until such a time as any associated legal situations have been resolved to its satisfaction.

Boswells reserves the right to reschedule or cancel an event on any of its premises, or any external venues, at any time due to a lack of reservations or any other unforeseen circumstances, at its sole discretion. Reasonable notice will be given where possible except in the most extreme cases, e.g. acts of god, event leader illness etc.
