Sadly I wasn't overly enthralled with this shop. Even though it had lots of old artefacts and information about the history of the brand. I found the staff not engaging even though we were the only people in there. The store also seemed to be a bit messy, in the respect empty shelves and poor selections of the Colman brand.... More

Situated in the Royal Arcade, this shop is worth popping in for a look around. It has an artisan feel about it with non-mainstream food and other items for sale. The tag 'museum' is overselling it somewhat, there is some Coleman's history on banners and some artefacts, but this place is actually a themed shop with a bit of company... More

With Christmas shortly approaching - ideal place to go to get Christmas presents with a difference. Having a step son who likes mustard - this shop has valuable source of items consumable and non-consumable.

Came across the shop so thought we would have a look round. Found items were rather expensive so didn't make a purchase. Will carry on buying Colman's mustard from my local supermarket.

We knew of this shop and almost stumbled on it in the Royal arcade. It has a fabulous array of mustard not only from Colman's but from many other places around the world. For people who want to know about the History of the firm, there are pictures and short explanations all around the shop. We didn't spend too long... More

Whilst this is just a shop with some promotional history and merchandising, we found it quite interesting and it sold a lot of unusual mustard based products. I certainly wouldn't describe it as a mustard museum, but it's worth a look around.

Great selection of memorabilia, photos & books covering the history of Colman's and plenty of things I didn't know about mustard! You're welcome to just browse and of course there's plenty of Colman's products and branded goods to buy.
