I agree with Robert from 2016! The gentleman is wonderful and really helpful when you need to source something he doesn't have in his tiny shop. His shop wasn't open for a while last year because he'd had a heart attack and was in hospital. I understand it can be frustrating if you're dealing with parcels, as most of the unhappy customers are in these reviews, but if you have the time to chat to him, particularly about cricket, and even learn his name your experience could be really different. When our son was being followed home by three intimidating men a few years ago, he doubled back and took shelter there. Great shop which we LOVE using.

This man is sooo rude and miserable he has no manners and the shop is disgusting and filthy. He doesn’t greet you when you walk in or thank you. I only use this place cos I have to for my local evri parcel return - other then that I would never give this guy my custom. Avoid

Rude… he changes the rules each visit! Today I’m told he will only accept parcels till 12oc. Last week he told me to step out of the shop and wait because he was so busy, I was the only customer there. Avoid if you can.

As I go to write my review here I see I’m not the first.
The most ignorant, rude and jobsworth owner. NEVER give him your business, I’m certainly not, ever again. If you don’t have the facility to take on parcels- don’t offer it! Avoid, he doesn’t deserve a buisness

Really upsetting experience in this shop. An extremely rude man who owns the shop who shouted at me when asking him to help return a parcel. Should not be operating as a parcel shop as he seems to be highly bothered by people asking him to do his job. I will not ever be returning to this newsagent and take my business elsewhere. As others have said the same, I do wonder how this man still operates a customer service business.

REALLY rude staff. Been sent away as he will only accept parcels until 3pm and then changed to 2pm another day.

Use this man’s store at your own risk. One of the rudest people I have sadly ever come across. If you go in to collect a Hermes parcel, be prepared to be berated because you’re wasting his time when he’s “trying to run a business”, refuses to hand-over a Hermes parcel that is sat feet away on a shelf because it is after 4pm, demands to know what is inside each parcel before he’s prepared to hand it over, will not take a parcel for return via Hermes (despite this being one of his jobs), is open at random times and not as advertised, and is generally a living incarnation of Victor Meldrew. You have been warned.

What a horrible man. I had an encounter with this man a couple of years ago and stopped using their services. However I had no choice this time as I was waiting for abdeliver with Hermes, they were the only local delivery site.
However this man is extremely rude and very unpleasant. He had no customer service skills and just horrible.
I will go out that extra mile to use another shop but will NEVER use his services again

Rude staff, wouldn't accept my parcel. Whats the point in listing if you dont accept the post - would not visit again.

Extremely rude staff. Didn't accept my parcel today as it is a hot day. How ridiculous is that? Stay away

Never met such rude staff for me being a customer... never will I use this shop again even if there is nothing around. I'd rather walk.

A real part of the local community. Been there for years.
Open all hours. Does Bharat never rest? The best selection of papers and magazines in the area, including the spot-on Private Eye. Long may the shop last.
