I’m always in awe of how much amazing and unique food and drink is in stock. Lou is an absolute expert in her role from knowing all her stock and understanding her customers likes and dislikes. It’s not just a shop it’s an experience and I could stay for hours!
An absolute gem of a place. Such friendly staff and the products...well they are amazing! Even if you are not sure what you want or are going to like, staff are always willing to help and offer advice. Quirky foody gifts to alcoholic treats...this is definitely the place.
Gin by the people for the people, mainly hand crafted local gins, no real commercial element. Two of my favourite things under one roof, gin and cheese if it had a tele for the football I would never leave!! You get a real personal feel when entering the shop and the guys behind the bar really make you feel welcome and offer the expertise to ensure you leave with the products which suit your taste! 5 star!
Fabulous service, they are so knowledgable about all the different gins and know which we are likely to enjoy ...they have always got it right.
Our last purchase was Jake’s Gin and Fifth Spire Gin....perfect choice x
Such a wonderful shop to visit, it makes shopping local enjoyable. Every time we go we receive fantastic customer service, and the events are something unique and fun to attend. And they even treat the doggy customers too!
Lou always makes Humans and Dogs so welcome. She stocks wonderful cheese, ale and gin which makes great gifts, addition to entertainment and treats. Plus she runs informative and entertaining events which are such a laugh.
Love coming into see the team! They’re always so helpful and knowledgable about their products and demonstrate a real passion!
They always remember my tastes and recommend new gins much to my husbands dismay!

What a great find, tried a few gins and bought gin ting passion fruit, is absolutely delicious, good recommendation. Also bought the masala cheese after tasting it and OMG amazing on jacket potatoes with beans. Will definitely visit again soon
A regular establishment or us and our dog. Super friendly and while we test our next purchase the dog gets his cheesy tit bits. Definitely a favourite place of ours with no hard sell. Well done Lou and the team, customer and dog service at it’s best
