run by an ancient man whom clearly missed out on the whole 'customer service' part of his retail training. He Simply thrust his hand out to me when he wanted my card for payment accompanied by a sarcastic comment from him as to why i was taking so long to hand my card over.

Whilst in the shop i also witnessed him being extremely rude to an elderly lady next to me. myself and the lady exchanged knowing glances.

The worst bit is that his younger co-worker (son maybe?) seemed oblivious to the old mans disgusting attitude and there was no apology to be had. I left the shop feeling angry and almost in tears from the bad service.

If you enjoy being treated like a second class citizen then i'm sure you'll love this shop.

Great selection of antique furniture,amazing value for money. Bought a barometer from an elderly gentleman called Eric. If you have two hours to kill he is your man.

Had a quick wonder around in this antique shop whilst in Dorking. Always lots of curiosities and amazing objects to see. Some of the prices make you gulp but that's antiques for you.

Very impressed with the range of items here. A good selection of furniture, fine china and silver as well as affordable Jewellery bric a brac and collectables. They go out of their way to help you and arrange delivery for larger items though you can park there to pick up as well. Nothing was too much trouble. Very easy location next to car park at beginning of West Street. Dorking has lots of lovely places, this is my favourite.

We've visited this shop many times and have bought quite a few bits, mostly art. Popping in quickly last Saturday on the hunt for a new bit of art for our bedroom, we were approached as we were finishing looking around in the top floor area by a member of staff at 4.55pm and told sternly to "make it quick, we all want to go home." Fair enough if that was the case, but use a bit of customer service and make a polite joke of it, especially when it wasn't actually 5pm yet and there were other customers in there still. Really put a sour note on the end of a nice day going around the Surrey Hills and they've lost our custom.

Because this is a mixture of dealers the selection of antiques etc. is quite eclectic so you can find items ranging from extremely reasonable to very expensive. Well worth a browse.

This is one of the best antique centres we have ever visited.
Four floors of dealers, from silver to furniture, clocks to taxidermy.
Staff are great and on hand to answer any questions about the stock and when we did purchase an item, it was wrapped and ready for us at the till.
Dorking has a lot of antique shops, so you can spend the whole day shopping, but do not miss this one.
