Antiques Dealers and Stores

The Antiques Centre York

41 Stonegate, York YO1 8AW, UK – 01904 635888

3 floors of a massive number of antiques at quite good prices. We got a German stein and a 2 foot brass ruler for less than 10 pounds each. The jewelry was very beautiful, the historic objects were fantastic to view. We spent about an hour to see it all.

This place is massive! You need a good few hours to explore. There's a wide range of antiques from prehistoric pieces to modern collections. There's so much, well worth a mosey around.

Bishopgate Antiques

23-24 Bishopgate St, York YO23 1JH, UK – 01904 623893

We had bought some really nice antiques there, the owner has been very kind.

The Red House Antique Centre

The Red House, 1 Duncombe Pl, York YO1 7ED, UK – 01904 637000

Interesting little find! We didn't intend visiting the antiques centre itself - only the cafe which turned out to be small and plainly furnished. Although we only went for a coffee, the rest of the menu looks good and is reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and efficient. Our coffee & cakes were excellent and we will most certainly return, as we'd like to try something else from the wide range of snacks on offer A browse around the centre as we were leaving was quite fascinating. Bargains to be had for sure.

A massive collection of antiques covering from the roman era to present. From rusty finds to glittering jewels. After going to the museum this place is great as you can actually handle the objects.

Wilco Motosave

Malton Rd, York YO31 9LT, UK – 01904 431951

wilco saved me just shy of 300 pounds getting the front wheel bearing replaced! brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable garage. I've finally found somewhere I can keep returning too with my car knowing I'm not getting ripped off! thanks guys and see you soon....

Absolutely lovely place. Brought my Corsa in today after struggling to get it to accelerate. Fit me in nice and quickly despite being down to one engineer on a busy day! They even gave me advice on what to do about the bad service which caused the problem! Lovely gents. Can't fault them and their customer service skills. Will be going back!

Car Audio Equipment

Richer Sounds, York

12 St Sampsons Square, York YO1 8RN, UK – 0333 900 0084

One of the better shops for customer service when things go wrong, in this case a firmware update problem, which is now resolved. They went the extra mile by paying my car park charge, while I had to wait for an upload, and gave me a free ethernet cable which should prevent a repeat of the problem. If only all shops were as good as richer sounds!

These guys are brilliant. I've got to the stage where I wouldn't bother shopping anywhere else in this category (including online). They know their stuff and are really helpful.

Osbaldwick Motors Ltd

179 Osbaldwick Ln, York YO10 3BD, UK – 01904 412417

Good lads (and lasses) Knowledgeable mechanics and reasonable prices. Won't try to scam you or milk the labour like some places. Have kept my knackered astra on the road so will continue to use them.

Bought my Golf TDI from John at Osbaldwick Motors Excellent customer service and brilliant car ...loving driving it .

Car Dealers

Turnbulls Mazda York

17-27 Layerthorpe, York YO31 7UZ, UK – 01904 658809

Highly recommend Turnbulls. Exceptionally high quality customer service from all the team and the after care continues after sale. David Smith was particularly helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Friendly and efficient - a winning combination. My Mazda 2 Sport is brilliant too - an absolute joy to drive.

I recently purchased an ex demo CX5 from Turnbulls in York. This was my first experience of Mazda and of this dealership. I must say how impressed I am with the car and level of comfort and technology. The purchasing experience was made particularly enjoyable by Chris Sawyer who had a good knowledge of the vehicle / brand. The whole process was conducted expediently and professionally and I look forward to dealing with them in coming years. The handover process was particularly good by Chris. Time was taken by Graham the Sales Manager to introduce himself and welcome me as a new owner. Can thoroughly recommend these guys.

D & J Woodcock. Quality Used Cars. Mot, Service & Repair Centre York.

223 Malton Rd, Huntington, York YO32 9TD, UK – 01904 430130

I arranged to view an Audi A4 with 48,000 miles on the clock, on the Monday morning and was delighted to take it out for a test drive in the afternoon. I went back on the Tuesday to complete the deal with Garth and he would arrange collection when it had been MOT'd, Serviced and valeted. I collected the car Friday lunch time and the car looked superb. What they had included in the price unbeknown to me was they changed the cam belt and water pump so very pleased with Garth and the team. I would certainly go back, highly recommended.

Bought a car from them a few weeks ago and I happy I received from them. All the staff were very friendly and helpful whilst going through the process of buying a competitively priced car from them. My only downside was that a friend noticed that one of my rear lights had gone shortly after picking up the car. Their service was excellent and thoughtful and it was sorted within 5 minutes.

Glen Garage Suzuki

14 Hawthorn Grove, York YO31 7XZ, UK – 01904 425800

Lovely people work here, incredobly helpful. Popped in with my ill friend just before closing and unfortunately they didn't have the medicine we needed but they worked overtime giving really in-depth directions to a pharmacy that both had it and would be open later. Came back the next day for my own medicine and they were lovely just the same. I have recommended Whitworth to all of my friends who live in the University as well.

Monkbar Pharmacy

3 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LJ, UK – 01904 626181

More compassionate and helpful than my GP. Everyone who works here is happy to chat and a few members of staff even know me by name. The staff are educated and can give out excellent advice, but will get a pharmacist to double check if it's beyond their scope. Excellent pharmacy.

Really nice staff. Very helpful when I was trying to figure out what travel vaccines to get for a recent trip. Great, flexible service and to top it all...I didn’t feel a thing! Thank you - so glad you guys are here.

very friendly staff! High quality fashion clothes.

Nice shop and lovely clothes. However, I can't bear more than five minutes in there as they have hot air pumping in every season of the year! It is like being in a sauna; you stand in different areas to avoid it but the heating is just unbearable - sort it please!

Long Tall Sally

York IT Services

267 Melrosegate, York YO10 3SN, UK – 01904 424700

Having bought my PC from PC World a few years ago I upgraded the operating system to Windows 10 during the free download period without any problems, however a couple of months ago it started to install Windows 10 updates that would not install, after about a month of constantly allowing the automatic updates to attempt to install then failing I decided to return the computer to PC World and requested that they sort out the update problem. when I was given the computer back not only had they not updated WINDOWS 10 they had reverted the computer back to Windows 7 and lost all my data in the process (I would never take a computer to PC World again). I then took the computer to York IT Services who have done an excellent job of getting me back on to Windows 10 and recovering most of data from my backup. I would certainly use their services again when i require a computer repaired. Thank you York IT Services.

I brought in several old diskettes (remember those?) from a book I wrote, and needed the documents transferred to CDs. No problem, they said. I found them extremely knowledgeable, friendly, quick and not expensive. Can't get better than that! I will definitely go back.

K&A IT Ltd

24 Fishergate, York YO10 4AB, UK – 01904 848610

The quality of service at K&A Ltd is outstanding! I received perfect customer service! These gentlemen will go the extra mile for you. The hours they took just to give me an estimate for the work... Here you find genuine, honest help. Will not go elsewhere. Highly recommended!

I have had several issues over this last year with my laptop regarding charge and accessibility. The service provided by K&A IT is always efficient. The guys are very professional and know their stuff. Their prices are reasonable and they also give great advice.

Genius Services

43A Shambles, York YO1 7LX, UK – 01904 898455

Fantastic! Finally, an IT Support company that could actually resolve our business issues. We have tried so many companies in the past who sell their products and services, but then almost disappear. Now, working with David and the team from Genius Support, we have fast network storage, and great network and a new phone and broadband system. We can always get hold of the team on the phone and are never left in the lurch. Thanks Guys, you deserve this review. C Fenton

Genius Support was originally recommended to Lancaster Samms at the perfect time, as we were due to relocate our office. As an estate agent we could not be a moment without the use of our I.T and the whole transition ran smoothly with no effect on the business. Since then David and the team have always been quick to respond at any time of day to resolve issues.

PC Revamp

22 Livingstone St, York YO26 4YJ, UK – 01904 373373

Booked online for a specific time to get my iPhone charging socket repaired. Got there a bit early 'no worries, we can do it now if you want' What service! I also thought I required a new battery, following a discussion it was decided that a new battery may not be required as the faulty charging port was maybe causing the problem. Saved me some ££. While I was there I also bought a car phone holder, great piece of kit. The whole process took less than 15 mins!! :-) Thanks for all your help. Highly recommend.

Used these guys twice now to replace smashed screens on iPhone 6 and 6s - outstanding customer service and the quality of the screen fitted is first class - would definitely use them again

Cycle Shops

Cycle Heaven of York

31 Hospital Fields Rd, Fulford, York YO10 4FS, UK – 01904 636578

Knowing ZERO about road bikes but knowing I wanted one, I ventured into cycle heaven. I had no idea what I wanted or what to look for. Andy spent over 2 hours explaining the difference between bikes, the benefits of each and what would best suit my needs. I returned to the store a week later to purchase a bike, Andy wasn’t available, the chap who looked after me spent another 2 hours assisting and provided invaluable knowledge of accessories I required. To prove these guys aren’t just providing an exceptional level of service for financial gain, I had an issue with one of my cleats after my first ride, went back in, the chap who looked after me couldn’t be more apologetic, owned the issue, provided FREE support and replacement part AND even a free cup of tea. It takes a lot to impress me, but these guys have truly blown me away. Buying online prevents people like this competing in today’s market. These guys make it a pleasure to deal with a local company, with fantastic values and an honest, genuine approach to customer care. Keep up the great work.

Great cafe for vegetarians and neat eaters alike with very original and healthy food on offer. . Many tempting bikes to look at too! Perfectly placed on our walk from the Park and Ride into York via a lovely footpath.

Fulford Cycles

98 Main St, Fulford, York YO10 4PS, UK – 01904 620349

Exceptional service. Giant propel pro quarantined into intensive care, the Fulford team safely repaired and rehabilitated to time quality and cost. Upon its release immediately delivered a faultless 110mile, 10800ft sportive route during which the bike never missed a beat. Professional team, exceptional service, world class performance. Many thanks.

I've headed into Fulford cycles a number of times over the years. The staff are always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable when it comes to bikes. Today they helped me fix my front derailleur that had been suffering owing to the wet, salty, road conditions of late. I was also given a lot of useful maintenance advice to keep everything working moving forward. My experience is that they will go above and beyond what is asked of them to ensure that you have what you need.

Poetry in Motion cycles, Yourspokes

Unit 1,Franklins Yard, 28a Fossgate, York YO1 9TA, UK – 07917 698749

Poetry in Motion is a small, very unobtrusive bike shop, just off Fossgate, on the north side of the Bridge over the Foss. The owner's name is Dylan Thomas and he has an immense breadth of knowledge about bicycles. If you want it, he can get it. He is connected intimately to the bicycle community and knows who can perform which services. In my case, an older racing bike, he was the only technician in town, that I met, who had the answers and know-how I needed. His was the 4th shop I went to in a state of frustration. This is not some snazzy, glossy shop displaying the shiniest and newest merchandise, with slick sales. His is a hardcore bike building and repair shop. Unlike every other shop I visited in York, he HAD a thread gauge, and actually knew HOW to use it. When problems, with what is now an exotic/old school build arose, he fixed them. He proved to be a small business owner, who I learned was a trustworthy, talented craftsman.

335 Hull Rd, York YO10 3LE, UK – 01904 717700

B and Q was OK. Came in with my mum to buy an emergency electric lawn mower!! Not too busy on this occasion. Always ample parking here. We asked a member of staff for advice. They had a good range of electric and petrol mowers from basic to top of the range. The male member of staff advised us what was best for mum's situation rather than push to buy an unsuitable one. Once again the staff on the tills were helpful. If we'd have asked someone would have taken it out to the car for us. There is also a small cafe and toilets here which were clean.

Always find what I need here. Staff are helpful and friendly. Shop is well presented and clean with clearly labelled products. Nice big aisles and easy to manoeuvre around with the big trolley or pushchair. Ample selection of plants and outdoor equipment. Great shop. Plus there's usually a grand burger stand outside.

I use Elcock's 2 to 3 times a week for anything from a box of screws to fixing tools and can highly recommend them... the staff are always keen to assist and nothing is too much trouble...

Like Aladdins cave.. It's amazing how many tools they can fit in there. Friendly staff as well.

Electrical Shops

The Electric Transport Shop York

32 Walmgate, York YO1 9TJ, UK – 01904 623515

I have had many dealings with this store. And over the years I have bought 3 bikes from them, which says it all. They have a great stock ranging from top end full suspension mountain bikes to commuters. They also have supportive after sales. I cant rate them high enough. If your thinking about an ebike, then these are the guys you need to see.

John and Jamie are as knowledgeable, helpful, obliging and friendly as it is possible to be. They even use electric bikes and so have first hand experience, which no other shop I called in could provide. Most useful to ensure you get the right bike for you. My Bosch Active Line has become my best friend, always there to help.

Popped in earlier for the first time, and the customer service in the York branch was exceptional. It was only a small thing I needed, but they treated me like I was spending a fortune - extremely friendly, helpful, and going above and beyond to assist my purchase. I honestly didn't know the place was there before, but will be recommending it to friends. Thankyou for a 5* customer service.

The York Flower Company

177 Burton Stone Ln, York YO30 6DG, UK – 01904 849371

Excellent experience with York Flower Company. I called late on a Saturday afternoon U.K. time, from the USA, and reached the answering machine a couple of times, probably a busy time in the shop. Used the on-line order form, which was user-friendly and fast. I put in a note about colour selection for the flowers. They arrived on the Monday as requested, and the recipient sent me a photo, wonderful flowers, lovely composition, 10 stars!

These flowers don’t disappoint the most beautiful bouquets ever, I’ll never use anyother company now! Massive thank you!!

11 Museum St, York YO1 7DT, UK – 0845 604 8350

Amazing shop. Went for a liqueur tasting and the staff really knew what they were talking about. They told us it would take 30mins and it took more than an hour, they really enjoy sharing the knowledge and talking about what they have. Great selection of rare gins, vodkas and whiskeys. On the olive oil/vinegars side it was really nice and we ended up buying white truffle oil. If you like whiskeys or different alcoholic beverages this is the place to go in York.

I always get the sloe gin as it's just epic. They also wrap it up lovely too. So totally worth it, if you're after something just that bit special.

The Hairy Fig

39 Fossgate, York YO1 9TF, UK – 01904 677074

The best best balsamic vinegar I've ever had. I now live across the ocean, but I still think of this place often and would love to come back for more.

Absolutely delicious warm goats cheese salad and the house tea was lovely - so much so that we bought a bag to enjoy at home. There is only room for about ten people but it's definitely worth a visit.

Browns Of Heslington

15-16 Main St, Heslington, York YO10 5EA, UK – 01904 430931

Always excellent service and the quality and selection of sandwiches is outstanding. Browns has a great reputation for their products and it is justifiably so... If you are looking for the best locally, pay them a visit - you won't be disappointed

This place is awesome. Their sandwiches are literally amazing. A lot of students go here because of its location, but a lot of other folks go here too. I’ve often driven out of my way to get much lunch here when I’ve wanted something different, delicious and filling. They also have hot pies and pizzas, and the front of the shop has all kinds of jars of things and some regular grocery items. The sandwiches are the main attraction though!

The York Nut Centre

21 Market St, York YO1 8SL, UK – 01904 641205

handy but thinks he is cheap because he told me but can get on internet at fraction of his costs , but good range and handy

For the shop: 4 out of 5. For customer service: 1 out of 5. Me, my wife and my mother-in-law visited the shop today (02/08/14). The shop is great and full of excellent products. However, my mother-in-law was treated terribly and the employee in question was extremely rude and obnoxious to her. My mother-in-law did not realise that she could not go behind the nuts and look at the products on the shelves (to be honest, neither me or my wife realised that either). Instead of being politely asked to leave the staff-only area (which I presume it is), the female employee treated her as if she was either shifty, stupid or senile and made her look like a fool. First she kept making comments and rolling her eyes at her friend who also worked there, then she marched my mother-in-law out of that area and spoke to her in a very embarrasing and patronising way which was completely unacceptable. We bought some products from the shop and I went over to the entrance to where the products behind the nuts were (where my mother-in-law was told to leave) and I said that it would be a good idea to put a sign up. The employee said that they wouldn't bother as no one else has ever gone round there before, to which I explained that someone HAS now so it might be a good idea in the future. I explained that she made my mother-in-law look stupid and my mother-in-law said that she felt very embarrased, to which the employee said that she didn't care. I asked for her to apologise to my mother-in-law and she refused to, so we walked out of the shop. As we left, the employee turned to her friend and said 'ridiculous!'. My mother-in-law has felt terrible since (as she blames herself for everything) and me and my wife just feel very sad for the employee who felt that she had to act in such a disrespectful way and ruined the reputation and dignity of the shop. Unfortunately we won't be shopping there again.

Alligator Organic veg shop

104 Fishergate, York YO10 4BB, UK – 01904 654525

We visited this store on 14th September 17. We were served by a young lady called Scarlett. Scarlett was a true professional and extremely helpful and polite. I went in to buy a Thomas Sabo charm and was unsure what to purchase Scarlett was extremely patient and even brought out the turquoise bracelet I had purchased to help me choose a charm. In all it was a very pleasant experience and I hope Scarlett is appreciated by Beaverbrooks.

Came in today to have a look at tents, spent ages looking & was very undecided. Had some great assistance from staff (Rick) who took plenty of time to give great advice on what I was looking for, he even got me a great deal on a big bundle. (Thank you!) Very happy customer :)

we went to York for a day trip while we were on holiday but as it was raining we decided to visit go outdoors whislt the rain was on , we looked at all the great stuff on sale and even made a few purchases one which was a considerable buy at a great discounted price my son who bought the item was over the moon at getting something he was looking for for some time but was out of his budget we left the shop and travelled to our holiday accommodation and started to assemble his purchase now this item was required to be used immediately so imagine our disappointment when we found there was a part missing (devastation) shock horror the boys face anyway we phoned the shop and spoke to Rachel hope thats the correct spelling sorry if its not , this lady not only did not panic but instead made a great impression on me as she not only asked if she could phone me back after looking for the part but on finding it she then drove from york to thirsk area to deliver the part and made a 14 year old boy very very happy indeed so a great big thank you goes to Rachel our knight in shining blue uniform thank you very much Rachel we hope you got home alright and if we are in the area again yes we will be visiting go outdoors York

1, 1-4 Davygate, York YO1 8QR, UK – 0843 504 3792

There are lots of sports clothes and shoes and balls and bats and bags and trainers and sneakers and coats and tennis balls and football shirts and footballs and rugby balls and all sorts of other sporty things like cricket gloves and football boots and tennis rackets and golf clubs. I especially like the layout of the store as it is a highly relaxing environment and quiet and I like the music. Also the escalator is handy because it would be tough if there was only stairs or another form of changing vertical displacement levels such as a ladders. As much as I like ladders, sports direct davygate does not stock ladders, but what do you expect because it is called sports direct and not ladders direct.

A Fantastic store with friendly Staff and very helpful Staff and plenty of items to choose to buy.

Shopped here a few times, the staff could be a little more knowledgeable about their stock as when questioned they had limited information about items I was buying and ended up buying a hard drive that wasn't comparable with my smart TV and having to go back and change it for an external hard drive instead.

Ryman Stationery & Printing

8 High Ousegate, York YO1 8RZ, UK – 01904 622328

I called in to find a conference folder last minute - Liam was extremely helpful on the phone and guided me through what stock they had in and thankfully they had a large assortment of what I was looking for. Upon going into the shop to pay, they kept back my item and I was greeted by Liam who was just as enthusiastic and helpful as he was on the phone. Extremely pleased with my service and I had to share how efficient and accommodating he was. Fantastic shop also that stocks a lot more than you would think for a stationary shop. Fab service.

I've always found staff friendly and approachable. They are always willing to help you locate what you need/answer any questions. Recently did not have any problems with the e-mail/print/bind service. Thank you

Came to return a faulty memory card, had no receipt and paid in cash so, I thought it'd be a no go. But they put me at ease, made it really easy and sorted it out. They didn't have any in stock to swap so I walked away with a full refund. Amazing service would really recommend.

Excellent customer service. Went in store to sell my OnePlus 5 handset after upgrading to the OnePlus 6. Served promptly with a smile and the procedures explained to me which made feel at ease with the process.

Good choice of shop, nice quick service, friendly staff, shame the guy getting the stock from upstairs throws your £500 tv down the stairs as he can't fit it in the lift. Always great choice and great prices when offers are on. Not the best shop when they get things wrong, never accept accountability.

Very helpful and friendly staff Right on the edge of York's main shopping area. The store doesn't have it's own car park so if you're getting something heavy you may have to carry it some distance.

Dawn at Molly Browns.... She is amazing! So clever at knowing exactly what will suit you. Quietly professional, kind not pushy. I would NEVER have found such a beautiful outfit without her. Thanks so much Dawn. Caroline Atkinson

What a fantastic experience we had at this delightful shop, just walked in off the street, and although they were busy, Dawn immediately did everything she could to help us choose a Mother of the Groom outfit from their fabulous range. She is a real gem that lady, not pushy, just genuinely interested in helping make you look the best you can be on that special day. The shop has a vast range of wedding wear in all different colours, and accessories, and the hat range is superb. Shopping here is a 5* experience and should not be missed by anyone getting married or attending a wedding. Thankyou to all the staff at the shop, I bought both my hat and outfit from Molly Browns, and highly recommend.

The venue itself was very historic looking with stone floors throughout. It has 2 very spacious rooms with a bar on the bottom floor. The bar seems to have a good selection considering how small it is! The food we had was very good but the goat was a bit too fatty for my taste.

Great place with super helpful staff. Was there for a wedding and they couldn't do more to help me with my newborn. Great food and staff with a special mention to Claire the manager who was fab
