Trading Boundaries: Health & Safety

Please take the time to read the following update:

Although we were remaining optimistic, it is with heavy hearts that we’ve decided to temporarily close our showrooms and café with immediate effect. We feel this is the right thing to do to safeguard the health of not only everyone who shops with us but also our wonderful staff and their families.

Our website is bursting with wonderful products for you to browse and purchase online, so please take some time to have a look. We’re happy to facilitate ‘click and collect’ for local customers whilst adhering to strict social distancing protocols, otherwise please use our regular delivery options.

We are also looking at other ways to keep our loyal customers abreast of products and offers, so if you haven't already signed up to our mailing list please do so by using the link on our homepage so you stay up to date with news and developments. Our Facebook and Instagram feeds will also be busy so please like, comment and share so we can keep in touch.

Live Music & Events

Please note that all live music events until the end of May have been postponed. We continue to monitor the situation and have been in touch with all guests who have purchased tickets to any postponed events. We will announce revised dates as soon as possible so please bear with us during these extraordinary times and please be assured that any postponed concert will be rescheduled.

Support Independent Shops

We’d like to make a special request. If you decide to purchase any goods online rather than venturing out over the coming weeks, we urge you to consider looking at the websites of independent businesses such as ours. Large well known businesses will be able to weather this storm more easily than local, family run shops who may need your support now more than ever. So regardless of what it is you need, or where you live, please spend a few extra minutes searching for a company who really needs your support.

We hope you stay well and as unaffected by these unprecedented circumstances as possible!

Thank you all so much for your continued support!

Best Wishes & Love

Bank Holidays

Relax over live music & our charcoal grill

Every bank holiday we put on live music and get out the charcoal grill for outdoor summer events. Expect a fun family (and pet) friendly day out with great food and entertainment. We always have something for the kids too with face-painting, ice cream and children's entertainment ( usually a magician and balloon animals! ). The showrooms and courtyard are always open for the day so relax on our lawns and maybe take a stroll down to Sheffield Park forest just across the fields at the back of our venue.

The live music

Our outdoor events are prepared weather dependant, so just in case it rains we always put out copious marquees and tents for you and the family to stay dry. Live music is usually from our unofficial house band The Tar Babies who are frankly, one of the funnest bands in the UK, comprised of top-end session musicians with a ridiculous resumé between them, playing 60s - 70s rock with flair just not seen from a covers band.
