Owner description: With so much more to offer than the high street, our ever-changing interior and lifestyle store is full of handpicked items to give your space some soul. ​ Set within the Surrey hills between Guildford and Farnham, our 400-year-old Grade II-listed building sells a huge variety of vintage, antique and one-off buys from furniture and interior finishing touches to gifts and fashion accessories. You won’t find a more diverse mix anywhere else. Next door is our super-stylish restaurant Bears, offering a locally sourced menu from coffee and breakfast to evening meals and everything in between. Parking is free and we also run craft workshops and events throughout the year. It's the ideal place to come for a browse, a catch up with friends, or some serious shopping. We change our stock every single day, so there’s always something new to see.

A lovely place to meet up with friends. Coffee to start in Cafe Fig then a meander around the beautiful 400 year old hop farm to find those wonderful unique one off items you won't find on the high street. Follows by lunch with something tempting on the special's board back in Cafe Fig. A little more retail therapy makes a perfect day out with the girls!

Gorgeous shop, so much to see and such a range, something for everyone both new and vintage, expensive and reasonable. Lovely cafe next door, well worth a visit.

I just love this place! If you have the time, just visit and browse in the many fascinating nooks and crannies of this interesting building ~ it is not somewhere to go if you are in a hurry and you will not be hassled to purchase. For me that is not necessary as I don't think I have ever left without buying something! There is a mixture of antique, vintage and new, shabby chic items and around each corner there is something to intrigue or delight. The Beauty Salon and Café Fig are both excellent. The staff are not over effusive, but helpful and efficient. It is obvious I am a fan but I would suggest you find the time to make a visit if you like unusual things for your home, garden or as presents.
