Grapesmith, Barrs Yard

We are open 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and every day we deliver wine locally in our trusty Van Rouge. Delivery is free on 12 bottles or more. Orders received by midday are normally delivered that very same day. 

So why not treat yourself, go to our website and choose any 12 wines, and perhaps throw in some tonic water and some beers and let us drop the cases off at your home or office. It’s a great service for our local customers!

The Clockmaker

We have a range of affordable clocks for sale in the shop as well as our usual range of antique clocks and barometers online which  make lovely gifts.

We are also extremely busy servicing and repairing watches and clocks. 

Hidden behind decades of dirt and rust, this lovely clock dial with a bespoke engraving has a nice 30 hour movement but we think the last time it was working was over 50 years ago. We are pleased to report it is now working smoothly again.
