Fantastic shop. Owner took time to explain all he could to me about making cider for the first time. I left feeling confident in what I was doing and prices for the equipment were very reasonable.
Well, I was planning to visit this afternoon to buy everything we need for brewing fruit wine - we have apples, pears, plums and medlars in the garden - but since the visit will cost me £5 in bus fares, and there's no answer to the phone (at least, the first time I rang the phone was picked up and put down again, and the second time there was no answer after over 4 minutes) I'll buy from amazon instead. Not exactly reassuring... Later edit after owner's reply. Thank you for your reply and explanation. I do appreciate all you've said, but also please bear in mind that your hours are a lot less than before lockdown, and given it takes two buses and at least an hour to reach you from here, I needed to know that the store would be open when I arrived. I'm a 61 yr old disabled woman with a son on the extremely vulnerable list (compromised immune system after a bone marrow transplant some years ago) so I have to plan any trips out carefully to ensure I can do so as safely as possible. My husband and myself spent £100s at the shop when we first bought our house, 30 years ago, so I am pretty sure you would have everything we needed (we still have the demijons and airlocks). And yes, we prefer to support local businesses where we can (not always possible at the moment). A quick reply to the phone - "Sorry, we're very busy right now - we close at 3, could you please ring back later" would have more than sufficient. Anyway - we'll see how we go, and if we find we need more supplies, will get back to you.
great selection of beers and catagorised in a way that makes it easy to look for what you want. Owner is always friendly and has good product knowledge
Great place with friendly management. They have what you need, don't be shy! You won't be disappointed.
I love this place. Free with their hints and tips, whether that be on what to drink, or how to brew. For a small shop they have an impressively wide collection of products to sell
