Today I had the pleasure of having a makeup makeover in the beauty dept in Austins. I am no spring chicken but even as a woman of a certain age I do not want either my style of clothes or my makeup to be set in the 1950s. Therefore I booked an appointment with the Lancôme beautician (there are also... More

My daughter was after a certain coloured shoe and style, unfortunately Austins couldn't oblige. However a department store with a difference as its made up of several smaller shops along the high street? Familiar brands and similar prices.

The Menswear store has a very good range of top quality brands such as Hilfige, Ben Sherman, Tokyo Laundry, Bench etc. I very often shop there during the sales (especially the Blue Cross Events) and can always find at least a few items worth buying. Nowhere else locally comes close to this range and quality and the staff are great... More

Had a cream tea for one and it was excellent all round. Two scones so delicious and huge. I chose cherry and a fruit and couldn't eat it all. The staff are friendly and efficient and it is a lovely place. Much nicer to go for lunch or afternoon tea than the high street chains. Will definitely be my choice... More

Had lunch here after a long cold day shopping. Was a trip down memory lane, old fashioned cafeteria style Restauarant. Pleasant enough, food was overpriced, but good and hot. Coffee ok.
