There’s nothing not to like.

Their bread smell and tastes beautiful. The prices are seriously reasonable . The cakes are top notch. I’ve just finished a carrot cake and I’m regretting not getting a rum truffle as well.
The pastry on the pies and pasties is so light, everything they sell is just so good.
They’ve given the shop a lovely make over and the paint job is amazing.

Horrible experience and after 6 months the damp is back. Nightmare.

Here’s a third update. He was taken on to fix damp in the kitchen roof. 6 months later it’s leaking again from exactly the same place. Great job, Paul.
During that time one of his lads cut through the cooker wire three times in a day and I’d wager none of them has ever been trained in electrics.
I’ve emailed him about the leak but no reply, I think he’s gone out of business and he’s blocked me in messenger. His ten year guarantee isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
Words can’t express what a bad worker, him and his lads are,and they haven’t got a qualification between them, check his website for that.
I may as well have taken the 4.5k I gave him and burnt it in the fire. Beware of anyone who asks for money up front for a job like this.
Unbelievable, just unbelievable.

Poor quality workmanship. Don’t get involved.

Paul’s did damp proofing for us in April 2021.
Out of a possible 15 days he could have worked, on 5 days he didn’t turn up. I had to ring him,to find out where he was. “:I’ll defiantly be in tomorrow” he would say.
In August I discovered that one of the kitchen units was put back on with only two legs and supported by the wall. A screw was left, poking out of the inside of a cupboard wall an inch, to rip a wrist open, other cosmetic things were found as well as those safety things.
I tried for three weeks to contact him, telling him what the safety problems were,twice each by text,email, messenger and phone message. When I finally got to speak to him, he said he’d ring me that night to arrange a time to come and fix the issues.
He didn’t ring so I sent him a letter saying I had three quotes to fix the work and what the average cost was. He’s never paid me so I’ve had to have his mess repaired at my expense . I wouldn’t have him or his lads near the house again.

Paul will get the job done.

Paul was very prompt coming round to give us a quote, no waiting around for hours, he turned up when he said he would.The quote he gave was the price we eventually paid, no extra fees added on,at the end. He made sensible suggestions, insulating our kitchen floor, will be much warmer in the winter, and something we had never thought of.
We changed our mind over where we wanted something, half way through the job, and he just moved a few things about to accommodate us, no problem.
He went over and above what he had to do and now I’m delighted to say my washing machine is so much quieter on spin than it was, my fridge closes better and my freezer doesn't creak when I open it.
Paul and his men worked quickly and they were very tidy, all the rubble from the job was taken away and all their tools and equipment was gone by the end of the work.
There are always fixings to be done after a job and Paul was down the Monday after the job finished to tidy up the loose ends.
A job well done.
