Always a pleasure to shop at Great Danes, best experienced in person, as it really is a cornucopia of beautiful things. If you can’t make it in person fear not the online service is fantastic; items are delivered quickly, well packaged and beautifully gift wrapped if you desire. Friendly, professional owners and staff who are always happy to try to source an item they don’t carry.
Thank you

The Great Danes Shop is beautiful. I am Danish and I loved seeing all the good quality 'brugskunst' which I miss from home.

Good quality merchandise but more expensive than other on line sites plus postage charges are high. Great on line site for ideas but costs mean we do not usually follow through with an order.

Hi thank you for your comments - please contact us in the future as we might be able to price match. We're small and don't have time to always check other online sites. Regarding postage we offer next business day delivery for our products in the UK and shipping is FREE for orders over £60. It would be GR8 if you could visit us in Frinton some day soon.

My daughter found your company with danish background among others which have started in the last 10/15 years in the UK. Our family is danish and keeping danish traditions especially at Christmas time. Been buying danish Christmas beer and the service was very good and yes no doubt will be buying again in the future

Very good experience.
We thought we’d just be in and out after picking up my internet order. But the gentleman who was running the shop chatted to us and gave us a nice (much needed) drink.

Very good. Very customer focused. 5 stars.

I chanced upon this shop on a return visit to my parents' home town of Frinton. I needed inspiration for christmas presents. I certainly got it! Excellent quality gifts, all sourced in Denmark, none of which I had seen before. The owner even wrapped them for me. terrific shop.

What a great little shop, on the pricier side but the goods look quality so that justifies the price, plenty to choose from and really enjoy a chat with the shopkeeper.

First visit to the patio. We had a shared table which was a fun experience and later met with Mike the owner. Food was divine. Service was friendly and the atmosphere cheerful and relaxed.
We had no idea what to expect and we’re delighted to have had such a lovely evening.
