Quaint, old town, it feels like it has stood still in time. Nice pubs & restaurants, quite a few Indian restaurants. The still do door to door milk deliveries which I was surprised to see.

I am updating an earlier review and dedicate ties in memory of Jasmine who was a loved character and was really part of what makes High Street a friendly place to shop. Number one High Street is now "Budding Designs" a flower studio run by Nicola Hopkins who will provide you with bespoke flower arrangements. Further along you will find a cafe and boutiques and the lovely Deli where you can have your sandwich made-to-order. and of course we come to Butterflies where you can get your Yankee Candles, cards and gifts in the capable hands of Jody and Michele who will gift-wrap anything you wish! If you are looking for accommodation then there is Burnette Davies - Isobel will look after you - or - Knights - in the capable hands of Angela. For all your hardware O'Donovans has everything --in fact, if Rory hasn't got it then you don't need it!! For your fruit-and-veg Andrew, Jo and Drew will have what you need. I must mention the Pharmacy and the lovely people there. If you are having a party then visit Dr. Bob's -- ballons and decoration provided and delivered to you order by Bob, Julie and Claire. Then there is the Best-One minimarket in the hands of Tariq for groceries. Not forgetting the long-established butcher Vic Hopkins. Vic is now semi-retired and the business run by his son Anthony. All these traders - and I regret any I have missed this time -- were all loved by Jasmine and they in turn miss her. Don't go out of town -- go to High Street --it has all you need !…

An average shopping with nothing particularly quaint or memorable. Spent one to two hours at the location, I did not really enjoy it, because it is not what I prefer to do, but other people may enjoy it.

Go there quite often as its easier than Town centre but parking can be a problem in busy times. Most types of small shops cater for many needs and good value for money for food and drink in the many outlets and other shops.
