I was bought a voucher by my husband for my birthday. I was a bit apprehensive about going to a male orientated barbers, but I needn't have worried. I was taken through to the well appointed treatment area and greeted by my therapist who was very welcoming and put me at ease. She discussed with me what I would like to get out of the treatment before we began - relaxation and to get rid of tension from my shoulders and back. I didn't feel as though I had to make unnecessary small talk and... (read more)

The Valet have now added treatment rooms where massages, pedicures and waxing and other fancy stuff take place. Went there today for a treatment I've had on many occasions before in London centres, not really knowing what to expect. Well it was absolutely great, felt really well looked after and the care and professionalism was the best I've known. Plus it was cheaper and more local, so simply superb! Steve (read more)

The Valet is so much more than a barbers or a hairdressing - it is a whole experience and a great one! Immediately I walked in I was greeted by a mixture of professionalism and friendliness. The best haircut I have ever had has been there. Am also courteously offered a coffee or other drink. Both my usual stylist and another one I've had gave great attention to detail and got to know exactly how I'd like my hair. On a recent visit I found Emine to be extremely charming and friendly, and I... (read more)

Stressful day at work? Long day at the office? Feeling tired and needing a freshen up? If so then try having the Valet Signature treatment (a hair wash and cut followed by a hot towel shave). Too many times I have gone into a barbers and it has been like a conveyabelt of customers. You only sit down for 5 minutes before you are moved on. The Valet is completely different. I arrived after work and was immediately offered a drink ranging from an ice cold beer to a coffee. Already the service... (read more)

The Valet was reccommended to me by a friend and has turned out to have been the best reccommendation I have ever had in terms of hair grooming.
Excellent service, excellent facilities, excellent hair cut and all at a very reasonable fee.
I dont have much hair but I felt like we could have a very good conversation on what would suit my hair best and how best to cut it.
You can tell they really value your time rather than rushing you out the door and taking your money.

I've been twice so far: 1st time I had my hair cut by Ibrahim, 2nd time by Margaret. Ibrahim was especially attentive from the moment I arrived (greeting me, hanging my jacket and offering me a drink). He was very friendly and focused on me and my experience throughout my time there which was refreshing when some barbers give the impression that you are just another head of hair passing along a conveyor belt.
They were both really friendly and happy to explain anything you might ask about... (read more)

A revelation in male grooming. I used to just have a hair cut, now since I discovered The Valet, it is so much more. From the moment you walk in, everyone knows your name and you are greeted with a coffee or beer and the experience begins. The wet shave Signature is a treat and even a simple cut can be enjoyed with a friendly welcome and Sky Sports.

The Valet-Its the barbers I have always wanted to find. As soon as you walk in the friendly atmosphere is evident. You are made welcome in lovely classicly styled but modern surroundings. You get offered a drink and then the real pleasure starts- I've had a number of haircuts and three shaves.
Wow! to say I was relaxed is an understatement.

Have been going to The Valet since July and have been taking mostly signature treatment. I have found the treatment the best compared to other saloon. Have been going to Ted Baker before Valet for a year or so but since July no other Salon. Both the price, service, people is amongstthe best you could think of. Just try once and I am sure you would just end up at The Valet!!

I used to go to a barbers down the road for 16-ish years since I was a child. But they could never give me a really amazing haircut. But then the Valet moved in, I decided that it was time it check it out. On the first haircut I ever had at the Valet, I felt slightly like royalty, as they got me a drink, put my feet up, gave me a teenager discount and spent around 45 minutes doing an excellent job; compared to a 10 minute job in my old barbers. They cannot be beaten in terms of time, quality,... (read more)

I used to think that getting your haircut was about going to a cheap hairdressers and getting a crew cut - or just short and spikey - it was cheap - I always looked the same (for about 10 years) and always got what I always asked for.
