antiques

We are constantly sourcing antique and vintage items from both around the UK and abroad.  We look for unusual designs, exquisite colours and a history of loving usage.  We don’t believe antiques should be serious or intimidating.  They should bring a sense of character, and often fun, to our modern functional homes.

We always buy the best in terms of condition, but seek out and embrace the careworn, chipped and faded.  It is these elements which bring integrity and soul to our living spaces.

nirvana! Stumbled into the Nest two days ago. Was so moved, hired a car to bring us back for lunch today. Croissant best on the planet. Never found a croissant I loved. Until now. Ham and melted cheese. Crispy, flaky, browned croissant. When you go to heaven, you get seven of these. No matter what.  Also hit on the squash/sweet potato soup, and lemon pound cake. And the scones. Bingo! Heaven's second course. Not to be missed.

favourite coffee Love this place. The paninis are to die for. It is impossible to resist the homemade cakes. The staff are charming, couldn't be friendlier. As well as the cafe, the place is full of gorgeous bits and bobs from funky jewellery, faux fur rugs, pictures, books, the list goes on. A real treat!!! (Susanne)
