A mixture of experiences then. It does seem that everywhere is hit and miss. I think on the whole I'm going to take my chances with Druid when the need arises, and I'm very glad I've got a spare bike.

They fixed my puncture for a tenner and did it quick as well. It was raining really heavily so I was more than happy to pay (and would probably have paid more to avoid getting dirty, which is awfully girly I know!!). I think it might depend who you get in the shop on the day.

I was a Walk-In at Mid-Day - left bike for a Full Service. Text at 17:45 to say it was ready. £55. Happy as although I was wary and have a spare bike, I got great service.

I take back most of what I said on Tuesday - got on bike this evening to do a couple of Km's. For some reason seat had been lowered using Alun Key and the gears are still out of whack.

No surprise there. I've stopped using them after asking them to change a chain. Simple job I thought. It took them most of the day and then when out for a ride it came apart. Took it to proper bike shop Pearsons in Sutton where I'd broken down and they said it was too short as too many links had been removed and quite dangerous what they had done. Only use them for a puncture repair I reckon.

Have these changed hands?
I have just returned home from Druid cycle workshop and have never felt so disgusted at a way a woman can be spoke to by the staff, at lunch time I asked the manager if I can come in and have a puncture repaired t he said yes bring it in at 5pm I told him it was not a quick release Tyre he thatís fine its a 10 min job so I pushed my bike to be told it will be £20 to repair a puncture by another employer, I was shocked at the price as it was Druid that repaired the last puncture costing £10 and also tightening my brakes,hence my shock at the price raising 100% I replied I will have a go at home by myself on which the employer waved in my face and said bye bye, forgive me if this is their normal customer service but my last visit the man couldn't have been nicer

I take my bike to " On your bike" under the arches round the back of Southwark cathedral.
They used to be on Tooley Street before they got pushed out by the London Bridge Station redevelopment.
They are really nice too.
