With so much more to offer than the high street, our ever-changing interior and lifestyle store is full of handpicked items to give your space some soul. ​ Set within the Surrey hills between Guildford and Farnham, our 400-year-old Grade II-listed building sells a huge variety of vintage, antique and one-off buys from furniture and interior finishing touches to gifts and fashion accessories. You won’t find a more diverse mix anywhere else. Next door is our super-stylish restaurant Bears, offering a locally sourced menu from coffee and breakfast to evening meals and everything in between. Parking is free and we also run craft workshops and events throughout the year. It's the ideal place to come for a browse, a catch up with friends, or some serious shopping. We change our stock every single day, so there’s always something new to see.

Wonderful selection of goods for sale spent an enjoyable hour browsing and buying, thought we would finish off with coffee and cakes, it was mid morning Monday and can only assume the cakes were the left overs from the weekend and stored in the fridge, they were hard and cold not light with creamy fillings as you would hope a...

Wow! Not been to the Packhouse in almost a year and what a transformation. Beautifully put together with fabulous displays and lots of fantastic interior ideas to take home and ponder. Some fabulous finds and even the kids found things they thought we could find use for! Will be back again very soon

First taken by a friend and returned with my wife. A great place to visit for antiques and all sorts of collectables and items to furnish your home and garden. Lots of rooms. Friendly and helpful staff

Good place to visit in bad weather.Today it was snowing !The Bear was a good cosy place to be..upstairs.The service was excellent and the choice of food varied. The Croque Madam proved an excellent choice. Then a browse amongst the assorted antiques/home furnishings before braving the weather again.

This is one of my favourite places to visit. If I needed a gift, or wanted to treat myself, or indeed, was just plain in need of something to do, I would visit here. There is a smorgasbord of bits and bobs, furniture and decorative pieces all crammed into every spare inch of this beautiful building. There is also a... More

This is an amazing place. A terrific bistro and wonderful shop. First the shop, an eclectic mix of vintage and new, it's affordable, fun and interesting. Even my husband who often prefers to find a chair and wait for me to browse was fascinating by the items on offer. And second the cafe/bistro, really consistently lovely food and great coffee,...

My friend and I had lunch at the cafe and were very impressed with the quality of the food. The choice was very good and the prices fair. And........after a pleasant lunch, you can always spend an hour or two wandering around looking at the wide range of interesting wares for sale

I've been to the Packhouse a couple of times now, although there was a four year interval between my visits. I loved every moment of my visit as I had on the previous occasion, but I noticed that the Packhouse has been investing on new products and less on antiques. I might be wrong, but I liked the smell of... More

Came here with family who live locally. Not a great fan of shopping but really took to this. Fascinating variety of antiques, reproduction stuff and some lovely Christmas gifts and decorations. Enjoyable couple of hours.
