One of my all-time favourite shops - an incredibly unique, atmospheric and ethical business that’s clearly run by people who live and breathe the Viking aesthetic. Really welcoming and friendly vibe from the moment you step in - if you ever need a recommendation for mead, this is the place to come. Love it.

This is my favourite shop ever! From authentic Viking tools to the largest selection of mead, this retail outlet is way more than a shop.
The proprietors , Fiona and Stu are clearly dedicated to offering a vast range of goods and knowledge and yes, there is a dog that clearly is in control of the entire establishment.

Great store with an interesting collection you won't find in other stores around. Really friendly staff. Definitely worth checking out the store while you're in town.
