My family and friends have used this traditional well stocked staffed and helpful shop for at least the last five decades of its almost 120 years existence in Plymouth. It's imminent closure as a specialist sailing and fishing clothing shop will be a great loss...More

Old fashioned shop but with a huge stock and helpful staff. Few places like this remain anywhere. Take a look. You don't have to buy but may be tempted.
