Grays Antiques

1-7 Davies Mews, Mayfair, London W1K 5AB, UK – 020 7629 7034

Two floors of antique knicknacks and jewellery. Great place for a wander if you like to look at shiny things like I do. Quiet on a Saturday though and a lot of the stalls are closed.

You name it they have it! A bit pricey but we are talking antique shops West End - worth a look!

London Antique And Collectable

90 Paul St, London EC2A 4UX, UK – 020 3637 3317

I contacted this company via email regarding some items. We were able to get the items reviewed via text and picture messaging. Thomas was very quick to respond and gave us his honest opinions and advice about our items, over a 3 day period. Each time I sent an image a response was received promptly. Excellent service and would definitely recommend. Thank you.

Excellent honest advice and information on items I wished to sell. Thomas was exceedingly helpful and when an extra phone call was needed he responded very quickly.

Beauty Salons


54 Charing Cross Rd, London WC2H 0BB, UK – 020 3174 2160

It gets the job done. The price is very affordable, but the stylists can be very good or very meh. Best thing to do is to find one that you like and try to book the same stylist every time. Great if you are looking for a quick haircut for an affordable price.

Been coming here for 6 years and the stylists are amazing! Specially Tinka!! Prices are very fair and the service is always on point!! Definitely recommend

ID Hair and Beauty Salon

106 Robert St, London NW1 3QP, UK – 020 7388 5619

Thrilled with my treatment. Outstanding work from staff with such a relaxing environment. Can't wait to go back!!

The lady was lovely and guided me about what style I should have the salon was clean and I was made to feel very special aswell as relaxed. Excellent!

Boudoir Beauty Parlour

1 Turville St, London E2 7HX, UK – 020 7739 5462

I have been a regular client of Asma’s for over 5 years now, and what keeps me coming back is the fact that they are absolutely brilliant with the services they provide. Asma has always been accommodating, professional, kind and talented at what she does. I totally recommend Boudoir Beauty Parlour, and will certainly keep coming back without a doubt!

Amazing service and very professional.I have been a customer for a few years now and have never been disappointed always 5 star service and the lash extensions are absolutely incredible everyone asks me where I go for them would highly recommend !

Local bookshops for new books, rare and secondhand books in EC1R


London Review Bookshop

14-16 Bury Pl, Bloomsbury, London WC1A 2JL, UK – 020 7269 9030

I adore this shop. They have the best selection of Academic and provoking books I think I have ever seen. Most impressively, they do not show a bias to the right or the left, only a bias toward good writing. With knowledgeable (and good looking) staff and a lovely coffee shop attached, this is a place I spend over and hour every time I can when I pass through London. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

I love this place- it is a great alternative to all the chains in the area, and the cakes are homemade on a daily basis. It is ALWAYS packed to the rafters, and can be impossible to get a seat at busy times, but they have a lovely selection, including vegan, gluten and dairy free options. There is always a wide variety of literary material, both in the café and the shop. I find myself regularly taking clients there for meetings.

RIBA Bookshops

66 Portland Pl, Marylebone, London W1B 1AD, UK – 020 7307 3753

Good bookshop. I find it quite hot in the winter if you come from outside all wrapped up make sure you take your coat off first.

Good resource but prices need to be varied for professionals and students


Unit 22, Lower Concourse, London Waterloo Station, Station Approach, Lambeth, London SE1 8SW, UK – 020 3206 2680

Good selection of books and comics.

Inspired to have this branch of Foyles here God send for a good book to read on a long journey

We Buy Cars Today

36, 88-90 Hatton Garden, London EC1N 8PG, UK – 020 7183 2311

I’ve dealt with this company twice now and have been very happy on both occasions. Price was fair, payment was prompt and the staff were all really helpful, the owner even came out to say hello as he remembered me from my first visit.

Filling Stations

Asda Bethnal Green Vallance Road Petrol Filling Station

112 Vallance Rd, London E1 5BW, UK – 0800 952 0101

Good prices cheapest price on the market but at times I have been it’s and been closed for refilling there fuel so it’s been closed! And it’s located on and small road that’s very busy and most of the time there is a tail back on to the road causing congestion for passing traffic it’s a very busy petrol station 24 hours a day. Only other problem I have ever had was being spoken to very rudely by a staff member called Khaled he shouldn’t be working in customer service very rude actually told me to F off still giving 3 for price of fuel service 1 3 stars because other staff are nice.

This is my usual palace for refuelling. Nice place.


77-101 The Highway, St Katharine's & Wapping, London E1W 2BN, UK – 020 7709 1370

The overall look of the petrol station is not what it used to be. Sure could use a refurbished. Apart from that I’m not going to talk too much about fuel, as fuel is fuel. You can find an ATM next to the entrance. Decent variety of foods. A Costa machine. And above all best bread in town ( if you’re lucky enough to get the one cooked “in-House”).

Goodnight choice ļc shops. Great placds to eat

Morrisons Petrol Station

55 Chalk Farm Rd, Camden Town, London NW1 8AA, UK – 020 7428 0405

If you like your car wont fill up there I have notices lots of white smoke coming out of the exhaust lately and have went to my local garage , they immediately asked me if I lately purchased petrol from morissons , I said yes they knew straight away , they told me its the water inside the petrol causing apparently they are not maintaining their tanks properly

I like this station, fuel price are good. Also they give morrison and more points for fuel. Here they give a free air pump for tyres but last two weeks the pump remains out of services. Customer services are not efficient but improving gradually. Morrison's has enough space here to set up a self hand car wash. But they don't have one. Other patrol stations has self car wash and vac services. There is no toilet for drivers.

Fuel 24 Hour


196 Camden Rd, London NW1 9HG, UK – 07872 491401

If you want to refuel quickly this isn't the place. Only a few of the pumps allow you to pay at kiosk, most of them are pay at pump but the receipt option usually doesn't work. Also this petrol station has a Tesco express which means people who use the pump then go and do their weekly ship and take forever. You'll be waiting a while for pumps to become available.

Hey! It's a petrol station, it does what it says on the forecourt. 24/7 Tescos, convenient, useful.


276 Upper St, London N1 2TZ, UK – 020 7288 0453

As far as petrol stations go, Shell on Upper Street is a joy to visit. Very easy to access, store is kept clean and tidy with plenty of space, toilet facilities and best of all staff always have a smile/willing to have a laugh.

Great site. Great station. Great location.

Shell Southwark Bridge

101-103 Southwark Bridge Rd, London SE1 0AX, UK – 020 7357 9743

Cleanest most organised station Ive been in a while, highly recommended staff are very nice and friendly

Slightly above average prices but it's a shell and it's easy enough to make a quick stop!

Motorcycle and Scooters

The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club

384 Old St, London EC1V 9LT, UK – 020 7729 8114

I went there for my birthday and the food was really delicious. They also cater to those that are vegan which was a plus for me as some of my friends are vegan. The service was really good, i thought the waiters were very well informed and helpful. They also have a room with motorcycles in it which looked great in pictures. The restaurant is very hipster, which i really like. Overall, a great experience and i will go back again!

Mr Grumpy becomes Mr Happy. I have taken lunch here with friends on a number of occasions, usually this becomes extended! Quality of meals is high to exceptional considering the relatively simple fare. The price of the well prepared, tasty and delightfully presented food is very reasonable considering the area and said high quality. Watch out for the 12.5% "Tip" already added to your final bill. The "club" is unique with the combination of custom motorbikes, high end biker and casual clothing, great food and wines, exhibition space and a damned good barber all under the railway arches. It's different, give it a go.

Infinity Motorcycles

171 Great Portland St, London W1W 5PG, UK – 020 7637 5002

Very nice staff, open every day. Good choice for a small shop. Prices could be better but location is great. Has motorbike parking in front

Fabulous stock, service, location and prices with motorcycle parking right outside.

Infinity Motorcycles

137 High Holborn, London WC1V 6PL, UK – 020 7242 1111

Keith (the loud Aussie dude) was extremely funny when I visited the store recently. The sales staff were all super helpful and knowledgeable in all the products I was looking for, and they provided me with a great deal on the Shoei helmet I was looking for. I will be using this shop again when I am looking to upgrade my jacket shortly. Thanks Guys!

Huge, Huge thanks to all the staff at Infinity. Just got my custom made boots from these guys. Exceptional knowledge, and spot on service. Highly recommend for all your motorcycle needs.

Charity Shops

The Salvation Army

9 Princes St, Mayfair, London W1B 2LQ, UK – 020 7495 3958

Big store and good selection especially for size 8 to 12. Items are donated from local stores and residents so they tend to be relatively upscale. Mid-range prices (most dresses 18~22 pound) but also a few bargain items for 5~8 pounds. There is only one changing room.

Was there on Saturday 9/12/17. Woman on the till is lovely and they have some really nice quality stuff. But the other woman there who was working there, stalking all the customers and being generally agressrive and unwelcoming needs to leave asap!!!

Oxfam Books & Music Shop

166 Kentish Town Rd, London NW5 2AG, UK – 020 7267 3560

Good selection of used and old books, CDs and records.

Lovely shop with great people working there & an amazing array of books

Absolutely brilliant pharmacy. Convenient, flexible and considerate staff, quick and efficient. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Dolphins Pharmacy

11 Broadway, Westminster, London SW1H 0AZ, UK – 020 7222 1828

My first time in London, this was the first shop I visited. Wonderful, will never forget it. The shopkeeper is really nice and told me about London. The key chain I got was the best souvenir I found - everybody at home loved it. Next time in London I will definitely stop by.

Dolphins has it all - their range of products is impressive enough to rival even the biggest pharmacy chains in London. Always quick and with-a-smile service, decent prices. Definitely recommend it.

Been here for my daughter's birthday dress. Limited but some nice designer collection for young girls. We found what we wanted.

Very good service very happy even faster then expected David

Tootsa MacGinty

1 Lindsey St, London EC1A 9HP, UK

Just a note: This brand does only sell clothes in their online store, it's not an actual shop at this location. I had a long walk looking for the store, but could not find it! The walk was pleasant, so never mind. :)

Literally love these clothes! I cannot stop buying them for my son and all my friends kids. Service is great too. It's definitely my favorite kids brand.

Suits Direct

57 Camden High St, Primrose Hill, London NW1 7JL, UK – 020 7383 5125

My son and husband are repeat customers of suits direct. The customer service and ambience is second to know. Excellent quality merchandise and product knowledge. When my son was looking for a prom suit he was advised to go for another suit that was very similar but that he would get more wear out. He has since worn that suit about a half - dozen times. As opposed to the once or possibly twice he would have worn the suit that he originally chose. We would have needed to purchase or another one or possibly two suits if we didn’t receive such great advice. The customer experience was also fun - what’s more can you ask for. For all your needs - go to suits direct! Outstanding!

Was greeted by Dean and was treated like I was in a fashion house boutique. The staff team are knowledgeable, receptive and fashion conscious. As a more "substantially built" chap I struggle to find formal clothing in general. The staff team were kind and generous with their time. I can't recommend them enough. But I'll certainly try. To quote Arnie "I'll be back" Thanks for all your help guys. 1love

iStore Strand

112 Strand, London WC2R 0AG, UK – 020 7212 9068

I purchased a mac from iStore 2 years ago, and had a failed logic board. I went to Apple with my problem, and was appalled by their shocking customer service. So I was dreading going to the iStore only to have the same debate again. But it was the most pain free experience possible. I was seen to instantly by very friendly shop floor staff. They were extremely helpful and checked in my mac for repairs and offered that I claim under law that the mac is not fit for purposes. I had to fill in a couple of forms but within 20 minutes I was out the door having left my mac with them. From here on, everything was dealt with by iStore, and the repair was done within 2 weeks (I understand law claims take longer to process than standard repairs). Came to pick up my mac and got to test it before I left. Again, a very quick, easy and pain-free trip. Service here was great, staff were amazing. There was a slight lack in updates on the progress of the repair, so I ended up ringing a couple of times for an update but other than that, very pleased.

I had a good experience, even if I see they could improve in many ways. Still much better than the Apple Store at Covent Garden, that's a joke!

The team is young and enthusiastic and always looking for ways to improve their service and skills. The NSIS team is professional, friendly and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend NSIS for any IT support.

I work with NSIS from time to time and some of my clients have taken up their IT services. I can say without doubt that NSIS are professional, very knowledgeable, and most importantly always reliable.

I have always been happy to recommend Francis and will continue to do so. His is a an efficient, friendly, professional and customer-focused service which is flexible enough to meet the varying needs of his client base. His team's experience and depth of knowledge around Office 365 and cloud services is superb. If you're thinking of updating an antiquated or out of date email service, or if you're setting a new one up from scratch, you should talk to Westtek first: you'll get a friendly welcome along with a comprehensive, unbiased guide to all your options. Francis goes the extra mile for his clients, which is why his is a popular service.

We contracted Westtek to deliver a comprehensive IT upgrade to our entire IT infrastructure. From day one, their knowledge, professionalism and customer services were of extremely high standards. One the many challenges we gave Westtek was the migration of all our email accounts to Office 365. Some were accessed via the iPhone and others through Microsoft Outlook. Throughout the entire transition period we did not loose any continuity to our business or communications. I thoroughly recommend using Westtek. They ensured that this potentially painful project was implemented extremely smoothly.

Crafts Shops

Japan Craft - Traditional Japanese Arts & Craft store

Unit 2, Market Hall Lock Place, Chalk Farm Rd, Camden Town, London NW1 8AL, UK – 020 8616 4647

Has some great anime merch and is in a beautiful part of London, bit hard to find though.

Was looking for animation shop in London and got recommended by few friends to go to Camden Town. I ended up at the art and craft that provide very good quality product (if you enjoy handmade craft and traditionnal, this will be your place) but not for me, maybe for birthday gift or christmas (those puzzle box still crack me up). I got then redirected to the second shop that focus more on the japanese animation. My fisrt impression was the variety of choices, you go from manga, posters, trading card, figures to japanese candy (love those pocky ^_^), even the japanese lemonade are interesting and tasty. You get a good selection of choices from major manga licence from Dragon ball to Attack on Titan. In the end I ended up spending a little more then but when you enjoy animation it a bonus to have shop like this one. I like the music also, opening en ending song from animations bring some memories :p).

Cycle Shops

Evans Cycles - Spitalfields

The Cavern, 1 Market St, London E1 6AA, UK – 020 7426 0391

After a terrible experience with having my bike serviced on a local bike shop, my bike had been unrideable and I decided to go into Evans to get it looked at. They were really welcoming and helpful, got Marcel to look at it straight away, even rode the bike around to really try and understand what was wrong and realised that I needed a new cassette. They had the one I needed in store and then Arthur installed it on that same evening. Heloise was really helpful too. These people have restored my faith in the cycling community as they really went the extra mile for me. I thought that big retailers didn't care about the customer, well turns out I was wrong. Will keep on using this shop and couldn't recommend this high enough!

Really great customer service. Very helpful staff willing to share their knowledge and time. Much better than my experience at Halfords. Highly recommended

Evans Cycles - Holborn

178 High Holborn, London WC1V 7AA, UK – 020 7836 5585

Very helpful staff, very beautiful bikes on display. Store always clean and tidy. One of the smallest Evans Cycles store in London but with the best sales assistants.

If possible I would add another star to this review! My bike's break cable snapped and the team from Evans Cycles Holborn fixed it very quickly and at short notice. Everyone was super friendly, but a special thanks to Will and the mechanic who was in the shop this Thursday!

Evans Cycles - St Paul's

1 Farringdon St, London EC4M 7LD, UK – 020 7248 2349

Great customer service. I bought parts online at a good price and had them installed for free at the store. I have only one slight reproach as they misplaced one item of my order - but eventually found it and gave it to me a day after. I will go there again.

blew my rear tyre on a curb and was terrified of having to waste money on the tube or finally having to invest in my own tools. quick call to st paul’s shop and in two hours all my fears were gone and back to every day life again. one of the staff member was mega friendly! ten quids for so little fuss is pretty damn sweet.

You have the best staff, hands down. How they keep their whole team that customer focused is a mystery. They are knowledgeable, attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Their selection is limited when compared to the big box stores, as you might imagine, but they have a good selection of high end accessories and low end necessities that perfect for an upscale neighborhood hardware store. As a part of the Ace Hardware network, they can also order just about anything you want if you have a little time.

For somewhere right in the middle of London the choice here is amazing. Little you can't find if you need it.

Tool Shop

162 Upper St, Islington, London N1 1US, UK – 020 7704 8321

Extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Good selection, including high-end design light bulbs.

Great range of stock. Good value padlocks. Only small thing is they wouldn't email me a receipt as I lost the original and live far away so couldn't come back to the shop to get a copy.

Sid's DIY

2 Commercial St, London E1 6LP, UK – 020 7247 3222

Electrical Shops


73 The Cut, Lambeth, London SE1 8LL, UK – 020 7928 8836

I got to the store at 5 past closing time (due to the extremely slow busses around Aldgate) and managed to catch the guy just locking up. I realised that I was to late to purchase a replacement bulb, but just asked him if they sold more of the bulb I had in my hand. Not only did he say they did, but he opened up the shop, found what I was looking for, allowed me to purchase it and then closed the shop after I left. Now that is service. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them in future. 5 Stars - Outstanding service.

Great service and variety of products!

Ryness Electrical Supplies Ltd

45 Old Compton St, Soho, London W1D 6HH, UK – 020 7437 8833

Huge range in store, and if they've not got it stocked they're almost always able to order it in for you. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

The lighting experts, thing they don't stock, they can order them. Their vintage bulb collection are sooo good, and lot cheaper than Heals etc. LED s are high quality, only with they were cheaper. They charge crazy prices for filaments bulbs tho, be warned. Been to few many stores, I would recommend Old Compton Street amd Islington (trade counter)

A-Z Electrical & Hardware

32 Maddox St, Mayfair, London W1S 1PU, UK – 020 7629 5088

Come here if I’m working in the area, always helpful even if there is a slight wait for service. Prices are high but what you would expect for a central location. I feel as though the prices I paid were not bad.

As far as little hardware stores go this is a pretty good shop. It can get quite busy sometimes, so you might have to wait to be served but the staff are usually pretty good.

87 Clerkenwell Rd, London EC1R 5BX, UK – 020 7404 2541

I spotted this flower shop on the way to GymBox. I live just around the corner but never really go inside. Got inside and was indecisive on which plants to take. Changed my options a few times. Lady behind the counter seemed to busy to talk or to delivery a good customer service. Great shop! Customer service was like not interested on assisting you at all! Can You just leave! I m busy! Are you having a bad day girl? Happy with my new add on plant for my Kitchen.

Very helpful staff and beautiful antique roses delivered within 4 hours

That Flower Shop/ ACE HOTEL

100 Shoreditch High St, London E1 6JQ, UK – 020 7613 9866

5 * experience! That flower shop provided the flowers for our wedding on 26th August 2017 and I cannot recommend them enough. After describing what I wanted they came up with ideas. I felt completely comfortable leaving everything in their hands. We had so many comments about how amazing the flowers were from my bouquet to the venue. Wedding prep can be stressful but Hattie and her team made the experience easy and enjoyable. Thank you so much for making our wedding day beautiful. Natalie :-)

With pretty short notice, a pretty tight budget and rather little guidance from me...Hattie produced a perfect bouquet for my wedding! It was just what I wanted and totally hit the spot...just fabulous. Thank you!

Isle of Flowers

9 Liverpool St, London EC2M 7PY, UK – 020 7713 8048

Bought a beautiful single pink rose three weeks ago on 29/09/2017 and it is still on my desk and utterly beautiful!! Thank you!

Quality of the flowers I purchase were great and why I didn't opt for a supermarket ready bouquet. But the customer service was lacking and the wrapping of the flowers was not satisfactory

Lina Stores

18 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 0SH, UK – 020 7437 6482

Wonderful! Whenever I am in the area, I head for Lina's. I have been shopping here for 30yrs and never disappointed with the superb quality of produce. Fresh cheeses, cured meats, homemade pasta, sandwiches, panettone, panforte, sauces, tasty bread & herbs. The shelves are stacked high with delicious, authentic Italian produce. The lovely, 70yr old shop is full of history & the staff are, obviously, proud of their history. Friendly & happy to answer any questions. The displays are eye- catching and truly beautiful. Don't walk by, pop in to Lina!

Amazing! Authentic store with wonderful staff and the highest quality food. Always such a nice place to come, so massive credit to the staff for making it the gem that it is.

De Beauvoir Deli Co

98 Southgate Rd, London N1 3JD, UK – 020 7249 4321

The food here is excellent, the variety and quality is also stellar. Deli style offerings, good breads, cafe with freshly made sandwiches etc. It is however very expensive with a real west London vibe, so quite a juxtaposition from the other places in the area. Not complaining though, nice to have the option even if your wallet will cry... But respect as they've just begun embracing vegan options.

Lovely little deli that reminds me of many in Melbourne. Great selection of deli items cold meats, cheese, olives, bread etc. Nice range of hot drinks with various milk options. The toasted croissants were delicious we had the ham and cheese, and cheese and tomato nicely toasted and very buttery.

German Deli

3 Park St, Borough, London SE1 9AB, UK – 020 7378 0000

I love this store. They offer organic, local produce, allow BYO bags, have a delicious prepared food sections and lots of vegan-friendly products as well as environmentally friendly home goods (cleaners, shampoos, etc). They are very responsive to customer feedback as well and are clearly dedicated to minimizing their environmental impact with continual improvements to their practices and products.

There are lots of organic products here. We also have cooked salads and sweets. There is a pharmacy in the back, it is suitable for people with allergies.

Planet Organic

10 Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4AE, UK – 020 7220 9060

I love this shop. It is a haven in the city, an oasis of calm that has a courtyard with flowing water, a lovely spot for a quick lunch (the courtyard has poor acoustics though and can be echoey). The food is amazing, great variety of hot and cold options, wholesome real food, some crazy expensive but also some reasonably priced if you shop sensibly. Great stop to stock up on good food and vitamins if you work in the city and want to look after yourself with real food and products.

Friendly, helpful staff and good product range. Nice healthy food and drinks to go.

Awesome place and the lady owner is super helpful. I broke one item that I bought and went back to get a replacement. The lady owner gave the similar item for free and advised me to be more careful with my stuffs cos it is ceramic bowls. Definitely will recommend people to visit this store and heading back to Singapore. A heaps of thanks and my dog will love her new feeding bowls.

Pets at Home Camden

85 Camden Rd, London NW1 9EX, UK – 0345 600 6082

Adopt a small furry friend here if you're looking for a small pet. One of the most rewarding things I've done is adopt Elvis, our cool and cuddly guinea pig from this shop. They really care about animals here. Although Elvis had a small health problem, this shop paid for all his vet bills! They didn't argue, just inquired about Elvis wellbeing. To make it clear: I did not buy Elvis there. He was available for adoption. They didn't earn any money selling him. It was such a positive experience that I go back regularly to buy pet feed there. Yesterday that led me to adopt another little Guinea pig from there. Like Elvis, he has obviously been treated well in the store & has a sweet personality.

A really good selection of products, you can get all the basics and more here for your pet. Staff are so helpful and will have some great suggestions if you need any help. If you're looking for something special or higher end, you're better off looking online though.

ASICS - Argyll Street

29 Argyll St, Soho, London W1F 7EB, UK – 020 7494 4701

The store was great. So much less stressful than all the others in the area. It's amazing that they offer customers free drinks. Staff are great and the DJ played an awesome selection. Shout out to Howard!!! He answered every question, was a pleasure to be around and helped unbelievably. Such a cool guy. I'd definitely go back there. I think the experience has converted me from a New Balance to a Asics fan. Oh...and my new trainers are wicked 👌🏻

Excellent, friendly staff at the regent street store. I was helped by Z who showed me three pairs of trainers and explained the difference between each pair. She was empathetic to my goals given my current injury and shared with me a more supportive way of tying shoe laces. Overall a very positive experience.

I've gone to Newmans for two bulk print orders as they were able to source paper in the correct colour where larger local printers failed. The customer service was excellent on both occasions and the prices were very competitive. Highly recommended.

Good selection of stuff great to see them still on the highstreet with everything moving online if I need something on the same day I use this place it has pretty much everything you need.

3rd, 7A Hanson St, Fitzrovia, London W1W 6TE, UK – 020 7580 5010

I completed the Niemierko Wedding Academy in January 2017 and overall the experience was exceptional. Mark spends 5 full days one-on-one with his student and ensures that the experience is personalised to their exact needs. I made a number of incredible contacts throughout the week, as well as now having Mark himself as a mentor for my future endeavours. I would highly recommend the academy to any person, of any age or experience that is looking to pursue a career in the wedding/events industry.

Excellent wine shop with brilliant service from staff members who are truly knowledgeable about wine. They have a great selection and the staff are super helpful - one person there helped us pick similar but less expensive wine (from a different region) to the ones we like which were spot on! I would thoroughly recommend this place for quality wine and quality advice.

Big Majesic with the usual great selection. Can buy just one bottle now but prices much cheaper by the box. Watch out for the price notices which give the box price in big orint and the single bottle in small! Store is across the main Road from Box Park and around the corner from Shoreditch High St overground.
