If you are interested in old things or renovating, this is the place for you. There is a mix of real and replica, all for sale. Ranges from door handles to fine china. Browsing is good. I think you wuld always walk away with something.

This outlet is worth a visit if your into restoring or just love old bit's and pieces. We did find most of the items for sale on the expensive side and more in line with high end antique prices for things that really weren't in...More

So much hardware, crockery, fixtures and fittings, bric-à-brac and everything is orderly and in its own special place. A very orderly place and it would be very easy to find that special item you need. Worth having a stroll through.

Had a very pleasant time browsing through the restorers barn. I loved the way all the goods were displayed was like walking through an art space, very beautifully presented. Cute little dog sitting on the counter.

If you like or collect vintage crockery, hardware, fittings and fixtures, or you are renovating or building vintage, this is the place to visit. Absolutely amazing. As soon as you walk through the door the eyes are overwhelmed with vintage objects from floor to ceiling...More

You can walk in but you cant walk out without buying something!!! Been several times and it amazes me each time what they have. Something for everyone and that thing you just cant find anywhere else.

We walked in off the street and were amazed at this shop. So many of the items there I hadn't seen since my childhood. A beautifully presented shop with so many treasures. We could have spent so much more time wandering through, but we were...More

Thank you for your feedback. My husband and I are the owners of The Restorers Barn. We work very hard to provide an enjoyable shopping experience from having a great product offer, friendly surroundings and attentive staff. We do care when we hear feedback such as yours, and having looked back to see who was on staff that day - we did have a trainee on who was very much still learning the ropes (being his fourth week of employment here). I am pleased that our team of staff really do care, and we are often acknowledged for how polite and helpful they are. We do offer a casual browsing environment without wanting to pressure customers into purchasing - so we remain visible & available to help, but we are not pushy. For many people we are purely an old world shopping experience - having lots of interesting and wonderful things to see. We cater for a broad audience - from people taking a trip down memory lane - to serious home builders & renovators, interior designers and collectors. Thank you again for your feedback. We welcome you to re-visit our store and enjoy what we do offer - we work hard for it!

Hi, I wrote a reveiw November 5th 2015. You may have me mixed up with someone else's reveiw because I only had the fullest praise for Restorers Barn and no bad comments on the staff. They were very helpful
