I have just discovered that this lovely store has gone into administration, destroyed by crippling business rates and the online shopping competition. My wife worked there some years ago and enjoyed being part of the ethos of the store. People are going to miss the...More

It’s not a bad shop. It’s on three floors and there’s a lift. There’s a step in the doorway with a sign saying ask staff for a ramp, but if you’re in a wheelchair, how are you supposed to get in to ask for the...More

You would think that a family run business would pride itself on good customer service... not Kerfoots. I visited with my husband and 6 year old. There was no welcome on entering and we were followed around by staff who clearly thought we were in...More

A very nice cafe in an independent shop. We always stop here for a coffe and cake when visiting the area. Never been disappointed and the staff are always helpful.

I have shopped in bigger, more obviously up market stores, yet not one of them supplies me with greater delight than when I shop here. As my wife and I browse and look for things to buy it is obvious that this store thinks carefully...More

Kerfoots has an extensive range of kitchen implements, china etc. I rarely manage to visit without making a purchase - often something that I didn't know that I needed! It also stocks clothes and gifts and the staff are very helpful.
