Fedora Success

Having been failed by M&S, Jollys, Debenhams and others in trying to find a Fedora, I was directed by a young man in another shop to this shop.
The daughter of the mother and daughter partnership gave me outstanding service, nothing was rushed, the chosen hat was not quite the size I needed and she stretched it for me to be a comfortable fit.
As a non smoker I did not detect the slightest suggestion that anyone had been smoking, as an earlier reviewer suggested. I shall not hesitate to return as and when necessary and will and indeed have recommended the shop to others.

Seeking a black Fedora I found that M&S had limited range so nothing in XL. I went to Jollys where the male assistant waved me in the general direction of where their were - at least in Tesco they take you. Failed there - nothing - Debenhams nothing.
I then went into another fashion shop and the young man there told me they did not do them but "I can tell you where I bought mine" he said.
And so it was that I had the visit to the British Hatter.
The daughter of the mtoher and daughter partnership served me and took as much time as I needed, gave good advice and then as I was not comfortable in between two sizes she happily stretched the larger one to fit comfortably.
Outstanding service and a veritable treasure trove if seeking a hat. It will be my first stop and aI am sure only stop next time.

Hat Heaven!

My daughter and I went specifically to The British Hatter to purchase several hats for Royal Ascot & Henley, plus numerous weddings we have this year!
Dianna couldn't have been more helpful and patient with us. She is an absolute angel and helped us with hats for all our outfits. The shop gets very busy, but Dianna helped everyone and didn't push anyone into buying something that they didn't want or need.
I can't speak highly enough of Dianna and this wonderful little shop.

Never again.

Visited this shop looking for a hat for royal ascot and I left after one minute of being in there. The shop smelt of cigarette smoke as they had obviously been smoking at their back door and after picking up one hat and seeing all the dust on it from the lack of cleaning left. I was really disappointed as I had gone back especially due to the shop being closed on Mondays.

There’s no hard sell when you enter the premises, you get greatly pleasantly and offered honest impartial advice. There’s such a variety of hats you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Absolutely the most charming shop and staff

Absolutely the most charming shop and staff. Treated both myself and husband to a new hat today and thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Will definitely be back. Awesome stock for every occasion. Thank you!

This is a fabulous shop

This is a fabulous shop. And the lady that served us, could not have done amy more for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble and she was happy to let us try many, many hats until we found the correct cap for my husband. Thank you. And I love my beret!
