We hadn't been to The Packhouse for about four years, and had almost forgotten how much 'stuff' they sell! The place is a positive rabbit warren, and it's very easy to get lost, but a very pleasant place in which to do so. It's a delicious mix of antique, recycled, shabby-chic, repro and bang-harry-spankers, and if only I had a... More

We first came across The Packhouse some 8 years ago, when we were restoring a 200+year-old cottage and were looking for feature pieces of furniture in the 'shabby-chic' idiom, together with soft furnishings and detail pieces etc.- the whole shebang. I don't think I'd be misleading you to say that, over the 3-4 years it took to complete our labour... More

Not dissapointed yet again, 4th time I have visited this amazing place. Different on every visit. which all leads to the excitement. One could spend many hours in this place and not see it all. We looked around then had a lovely lunch at the Fig Cafe then another look around to select our purchases before late afternoon tea before... More

I went to visit the Packhouse today with wife and son. What a disappointment the cafe was. Firstly, before ordering I asked the lady behind the counter if the cafe accepted cards ... She confirmed that they did. She asked me to sit down and informed me that someone would be over to take my order. It was fairly busy... More

The Pack House is an Antiques Barn with Hair/beauty salon and cafe. You can spend a good few hrs or half a day there. They have a lovely little cafe that serves a good selection of breakfast, brunch, lunch and snacks or just go for a coffee at a reasonable price. It would suit a vintage style cafe due to... More

I last went to The Packhouse about twenty years ago and it was an interesting place, had some genuine antiques and objets de vertu. I returned this week and, although a lot of money had obviously been spent on renovating the building and adding a cafe and Beauty Room, there was nothing of any interest unless you are looking for...

The shop itself is full of nice enough things but you would be stretching it to call any more than 5% of them antiques. The items are all over priced and from past experience not always great quality. The Fig Cafe has all the potential to be a great little place but the service is appalling! We don't generally do...

Quaint and unusual building, recommended by family to see and wasn't disappointed. Good selection of pretty unusual stock to go with the building and the staff were friendly - even their office IT guy helped out with moving some heavy furniture. Good value food and drink in the cafe too, a very functional (if a little out of the way)... More

I have been going to the Packhouse for a couple of years now and am sorry to say it's not as good as it used to be. The stuff in there is very samey, there are only a few antiques and a lot of over priced new things you can get anywhere. However the building is lovely, and the cafe... More
