Owner description: The Packhouse is located in a Grade II listed Hop Kiln, on the outskirts of Farnham, Surrey. Inside is a gorgeous mix of old and new treasures including antique and vintage finds, mirrors, lighting, soft furnishings, furniture, interior accessories and much more! Our stock changes continually, so you can be assured that no two visits will ever be the same. Dine with us in our lovely Cafe Fig, either inside or in the terrace garden. Open daily serving breakfast from 9am, through to afternoon tea.

“Worth a browse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Unlike Auntie Wainwright's emporium in Last of the Summer Wine, there's no pressure to buy. You can browse around to your heart's content.

Over the years that we have visited, I have noticed a shift from true antiques to repro and modern bijouterie.

“Antique in the Centre's name is misleading”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This used to be a great place to visit and could then, justifiably, be classified as an Antiqe Centre. However, in recent years the stock has changed greatly and antiques are far harder to spot in amongst the mass of Farrow & Ball painted furniture, wicker hearts with gingham ribbon, modern jewellery, shelves of over-priced chi-chi cushions and mass-produced dust gatherers. Perhaps diversity was needed to keep the customers satisfied, but it's not as interesting a place as it once was. Shame.
