This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair


There is a big step up into the shop. The shop has no ramp or other provision for giving wheelchair users access. I was unable to get into the shop. Zero stars.

Transport & Parking


Westminster Station is nearby and is fully step-free. Several bus routes serve nearby Victoria Street.



There is a big step up into the shop. There is a big rectangular silvery doorbell which you are invited to press for assistance. I pressed it several times. No one in the shop heard it, or it was ignored. After a long fruitless wait I called "hallo!" into the shop. One of the staff came to speak to me. My assumption that the offer of assistance included provision of a ramp turned out to be wrong. They do not have a ramp. I was not able to get into the shop. Zero stars.



I did not get into the shop so I don't know whether there's a toilet.



The one member of staff I spoke to was friendly, but he came up with a great number of fatuous excuses for the lack of a ramp, none of them remotely convincing or realistic. For this, for the failed doorbell, and for the shop's complete failure to provide access to wheelchair users, only one star.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

This could be a five-star review if the shop did one simple thing: acquiring a cheap, easy-to-deploy, foldable aluminium wheelchair ramp. There is no possible excuse for failing to make such a ramp available.
