    Outstanding Cigar shop
    Excellent shop, the owner is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. He was able to recommend several cigars for me to try based on taste and what I was pairing it with and I was very impressed with the outcome. I definitely recommend going and seeing for yourself.
    So pleased you enjoyed your visit to Head Case Cigars. Many thanks for leaving us a review.

    First time buyer, brilliant customer service.
    Brilliant customer service. Buying for my fathers birthday and I have no knowledge on cigars at all. Tony was friendly and welcoming when I first arrived at the shop and took the time to explain and make sure I made the right purchase to help make the perfect gift.
    Many thanks for talking the time to leave a review. So pleased you enjoyed your fist visit. I trust the cigars were enjoyed! Kind regards Tony Duke- Head Case Cigars & Curios.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Exceptional quirky shop, in a fascinating part of Southsea. Lots of gift items and strange steampunk creations that warrant further investigation. Besides that the owner Tony is especially knowledgeable on the wonderful cigars he stocks - absolutely fascinating. If you're in the area don't miss visiting!

Great place to find amazingly strange and curiously spectacular items, talked to the owner several times and has suggested some great cigars.

I always love seeing what they have in stock
