Please note that shop opening hours are now back to normal again, following our Summer break. During the school holiday we may have a day here and there that we may close a little earlier. Please call us if you are travelling from further afield to visit us, just to make sure. Please refer to our Facebook Page for further details and updates.
We are still unable to dispatch alcoholic goods outside the UK. We are now able to deliver beer to Northern Ireland through ParcelForce as well as the Isle of Man and The Channel Islands. But we are still unable to send any orders to the EU, until this Customs issue is resolved. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Internet Orders: When placing orders could you please ensure a house name or number is inserted when choosing the automated 'look-up' feature? Also, please provide a contact number (mobile if possible), which the courier uses to update you by text, of a delivery day and time. Thank you
We have recently opened a Belgian Beer Bar called Vespers. We have 15 draught beers and a cider on offer as well as 50+ different bottled Belgian beers. We also offer gluten free and non alcoholic beers and soft drinks. There are also two white and two red wines on offer. Previously a charity shop, a hardware shop and saddlery, we have now transformed The Old Stables into a modern Belgian Beer Bar, leaning on its historical roots and traditions. For more details visit www.vespersbar.co.uk
We have noticed a sharp decline of the availability of Belgian Beers in the UK, with many Independent bottle shop choosing to stock other beers, which are easier to get hold of. Also, we have had quite a few enquiries from Bars & Restaurants. We will continue to import Belgian beers but this process takes time so please bear with us if you have asked for a particular beer. We order regularly from Belgium but not all beers are always available.
We have continued to stock a small range of canned beers from smaller, independent breweries in the UK and USA as well as some European breweries. Although beers in cans are meant to last longer because of the lack of light pollution, in reality most cans have a very short shelf life and most need to be refrigerated. Some are extremely lively and we even had issues of exploding canned beers. Very painful when they go in your hand... Hence our vast range of beers are mostly in bottles.
Following a spate of a number of lost and damaged parcels we have decided to change our Courier Agent. We now offer a higher quality service through APC Couriers who will also notify you by email when your parcel will be delivered. This will also be a quicker service. This does mean, however, that the cost of sending your parcels has gone up, so we have increased the minimum order threshold for free delivery to £70. Below this it will still be only £6.95 which is still lower than the actual cost of sending your parcel. Free delivery threshold and delivery charges may change in the near future.
Shop Opening Hours & Local Deliveries:
As previously, we will continue to offer a free delivery service to those that are unable to visit the shop. This is on any orders over £30 within Bury St. Edmunds, and for orders over £70 for a wider area. Please allow 2 to 5 days (longer during the holiday season) for your order to be delivered depending on the distance from Bury St. Edmunds. We will endeavour to come to you as soon as possible, but deliveries are done late afternoon. If you live in a village without a house number, please leave detailed instructions as house names are almost impossible to find, even during day light. We also use the What3Words app which is extremely accurate. Thank you for your assistance.
Please stay safe and well. See you all soon.
