Recommended Camberley Suppliers and Tradesmen
I seem to find it hard to find anyone who matches my high standards of excellence, customer service, efficiency and actually giving a damn for doing work other than Lotus Notes, in Camberley in Surrey in the UK and around Aldershot, Farnborough and Northcamp in Hampshire etc
These companies usually do not advertise in Yellow Pages because they don't have to! The best ones don't have to advertise do they? Here is my list of preferred suppliers, my review of their work, why they are good and who to contact:
Bigger-Bathrooms.co.uk This chap Paul is a friend of a friend and has 20 years experience of bathroom and kitchen tiling and redesigning of bathrooms and kitchens including plumbing and electrical wiring. Camberley bathroom Tiling. Tiling in Blackwater and Frimley and surrounding areas in Surrey and Hampshire.
Just In Time Cobblers. Queens Road, North Camp. Great bloke, fair price and very high quality, much better than Mister Minute and similar types. I had my favourite Oliver Sweeney shoes repaired here and I doubt Oliver himself could have done a better job and for a lot less. He does the Army's boots and lives depend on them. What more can you ask?
Green point Computer Services. They have a shop at 109 Cove Road, and specialise in PC networks. they do a sideline in Computer repairs. They replaced my server's motherboard and PSU, rescued my hard drive's data in under a day, so my server was done for hours rather than days. Excellent. I think I talked to Alex Green. Update Feb 2007, they just sorted out my laptop as well after the hdd crashed. 2 day service. excellent. 109 Cove Rd, Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 0EX 01252 544788 http://www.gpoint.com
Design Systems Double Glazing I dreaded the time I decided to get double glazing. I was recommended this company by my barber. They were excellent, low prices, I compared them, no pushy salesmen, very good installation, tidied up after themselves, nice people. Ask for Adam for the quote etc. Ask for "the twins" when you get it installed. Good aftersales service when the door lock needed adjusting. Unit 16 Helix Business Park, Camberley, GU15 2QT 0500 959598
The Pour House Hartley Wintney. Great brasserie restaurant. I meet one of my best customers here for milkshakes, good wine, steaks, bangers and mash oh and a bit of work. Good bloody mary, good martinis. Great food, on the pricey side but worth it for the attentive and friendly service.
The Old Wheatsheaf Pub Great food and service. Good selection of beers and wine including Cloudy Bay. 205 Frimley Green Rd, Frimley Green. GU16 6LA . 01252 835074

Lawn Mower surgery for all lawn mower repairs in local area. Used them a couple of times. They get busy so drop in your mower as quick as possible. They fixed my flymo quickly and cheaply. Update: They would not do my Flymo in summer 2006 as it was not worth their while. I ended up doing it myself.
