  • A blokes "ye olde tools" paradise. Check it out if you are in town. They sell regular things as well but the highlights are the old benches and signage upstairs.  more »
  • W e enjoyed looking around this shop, and it had a museum in back which was really interesting. My hubby relly wnjoyed it. So much to see.  more »
  • Who would think a hardware store could be so interesting. You can buy new or antique gizmos in this shop as it doubles as a museum.  more »

  • Very good service. Can handle tyre repairs almost immediately Good friendly staff
  • Great personalised service that used to be the norm. Happily the tradition continues with Kevin and his team of merry men. It is a pleasure doing business with them.
  • I needed to urgently replace my damaged tyre. I called Goodfellows first thing in the morning. They ordered in the tyre I wanted and fitted it by 2pm the same day. Outstanding service and it was lower cost than other places too.
