|Address:||Steamer Trading, 109 High Street , Thame OX9 3DZ
Famed for having the widest High Street in England, the lovely Oxfordshire town also achieved popularity in the 1920s. John Fothergill, landlord of the Spread Eagle, wrote ‘An Innkeeper’s Diary’ – and HG Wells and the smart set of the time descended on Thame to stay at the hotel. More recently, Thame has become familiar to avid viewers of ‘Midsomer Murders’.
We opened our doors in 2006 – the tiny shopfront of our Grade-II listed building gives little clue as to what lies behind. The shop goes back and back, revealing an incredible selection of cookware, coffee makers, tableware, tools – everything you could imagine for the kitchen. It’s been called ‘Aladdin’s Tardis’.
You’ll also find helpful, friendly service from our lovely team. Glance in the direction of our coffee making area and they’ll offer you an espresso. Ask them about sharpening knives and they’ll happily give you a demonstration. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, they’ll try and find it specially for you.
