Absolutely amazing stock. Good range always in stock. Unique items. Knowledgable staff, who are friendly and always offer great advice.
Ordered 2 types of vodka for my Daughters 21st birthday.
Cannot praise this company enough.

Amazing shop run by super people!
Oct 2020
Well the title says it all really . Small door , warm welcome ( safety protocols firmly in place ) and then you step into Aladdin’s cave .
Perhaps I should say it quietly .... I don’t drink gin . Sorry but Himself does and was amazed by the many gins on offer . ( He has just tried the gin he bought from you and is so happy with it that I can foresee a return visit soon . )
However the shop has plenty on offer for those who are not gin drinkers . It really is a fascinating place and well worth a visit .

Brilliant shop...gin and food heaven
Oct 2020 • Family
What a great store. Dog friendly. Our Irish terrier loved it. Lovey owner ready to great us at the door and nice friendly staff. Best gin selection I have ever seen. We bought a small bottle of their own gin to try. ( I can now confirm it’s lovely and we hope to get back at end of week to buy a larger bottle ! ). Good selection of foods and gifts. We ended up with a basket full of things for us and gifts to take home , or bought ahead for Christmas.

Absolutely amazing little shop, second time visiting and brought a friend this time. The knowledge of gin and customer service is second to none. Came away with another couple of bottles. If you are in the lake district and like gin - go go go!

Best Shop in the Lakes!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Chestnut House was less than a minute walk from the holiday cottage we stayed at for our week in a Pooley Bridge so it was really convenient!
The shop is well stocked, we got all of our provisions from Chestnut House including the best black pudding we have ever tasted!

However, the gin selection is something else! We bought a few bottles, mostly for us but a couple of gifts too! It was good to see local gins (The Lakes gin is divine!) as well as some others we hadn't seen before.

The owners & staff were really friendly & helpful and couldn't do enough for us or our 3 bulldogs - it was great that we could take our dogs in the shop too.

We know that when we visit again in March next year, we don't have to bring anything or stop off at a supermarket, as everything we'll need is at Chestnut House and we'll be supporting a local business too.

Fantastic selection
Aug 2020 • Family
We’ve visited here many times over the years, each time we are given the warmest of welcome and the staff are always happy to discuss the different gins available. We always leave with one (or three) new bottles, that are perfectly matched to our taste.
Last time we even got to enjoy the new area and ice creams with the children, perfect!

Brilliant customer service
Sep 2020 • Couples
Had a large selection of home made local rums and gins, staff all lovely. Super helpful staff that helped us charge our powerbank when no one else in the area would help us out.

Great selection of home made baking goods and jams! Went back twice to buy more!

Great location, great people.

10/10 experience would definitely recommend!

Gin Nirvana
Aug 2020 • Family
Probably the best selection of deli style foods, beers, wines & spirits I've ever seen in such a compact store. Owners & staff super friendly and absolutely know their stuff, and stock some stunning local produce and lots more - if you like gin then this will be your 'Gin Nirvana' and I'd highly recommend you pay them and the lovely little village that is Pooley Bridge a visit - definitely on my list next time I'm over that way

Hi CKM, Thanks for taking the time to leave us such a great review, we really do appreciate it We have massively expanded our range of food and drink as you have highlighted in your review, and we are certainly more than "just a gin shop" now. Although we do still have 400 different gins! Pleased you were well looked after, we always try our best to make sure our customers are looked after, whether they are first timers or "repeat offenders" Hopefully see you again soon Cheers Andrew
