Vintage barber chairs, fittings and posters take you right back to the days of Perkins, Cash and shark-fin autos. It’s popular, so ring ahead and get your name put on the ‘board’ to avoid a long wait.

We took our two young sons (3 & 5 years old) to have their hair cuts and my husband & I were actually shocked by the absolute disgusting behaviour we experienced. Neither hairdresser spoke to any of us, especially either of our children whatsoever, before or during their haircuts. I even asked their names & made the introduction to our boys so they knew who was cutting their hair! The hair dressers then went on to snigger at each other, seemingly about our sons, or about cutting children's hair, or about god knows what. When we asked for a glass of water, for one of our sons, it was met with sighs. Nothing was obviously offered. The whole experience was nauseating & actually stressful. We couldn't wait to get our kids out of such a toxic environment. To be a customer facing business & be so cold, outrageously rude is unacceptable. Such people should be behind the scenes and have absolutely NOTHING to do with children. We have warned as many potential customers as possible, especially everyone we know with children. Would give zero star but this function isn't allowed on Time Out.
