My Auntie ordered a case of Berlinner Weiss for my Christmas’ gift. It turned up in excellent time. There was a few unaccounted Berlinner Weiss which they incredibly generously replaced with considerably more expensive beer and beer which I very much love so I am extremely thankful for that service.
Unfortunately they hadn’t got the case of Pannepot which I already wanted for my premium Christmas’ gift which was a shame. However they called in advanced and asked if anything else should be ordered instead.
I was very pleased with their professional customer service and their well thought out stock replacement instead of giving me any old crap like you can easily get.
I also want to praise their superb customer service which is faultless. I also wish to say thank you to Duff; Chris, Jan, Patirk and Mes for all recommending this company to me. This is what makes Rate Beer even better, sharing the knowledge.

This place is extraordinary. It has to be the best beer store in Britain and for range at least the best in Europe. OK they stock dull international beers but these probably don’t take up more than 10% of shelf space. From the website you would never know that they stock a wide range of Mikkeller, Brewdog, 8 Wired, Nogne O, De Ranke and many other top breweries alongside small brewers from Germany (100?), Belgium (200?), Italy (20?) and the Baltic States, plus maybe 400 beers from UK micros has got to be among the world’s great beer stores. I am guessing at 100 US craft beers. They serve the licensed trade too and you can get a fabulous array of single malts and unusual liqueurs too. They are good people too. Remember you are deep in the Fens here, not just off downtown in some international fleshpot.

massive online store(and real presence) ive just used the online store. Website is badly laidout, its difficult to find a simple list of what they have in, many entriies on the web site take up to much space just to say nopt in stock, but pretty decent selection and no trouble with any order i have made

Fantastiskt utbud där många dock är slutsålda, men de som finns räcker väl. Bra priser, snabba leveranser inom UK och bra service.

A beer supermarket! Load up your trolley with quality British, US and Belgian beers. Some are very difficult to get elsewhere. Not a bad geuze selection although this is variable. Well worth the trek!

Huge selection of bottled beers. Especially English and Belgian beers are well presented. Decent selection of US beers. Some hard to find countries were out of stock. Service was OK allthough Wyre Piddle I was looking for was out of stock. Easy to find but you have to be in Norfolk to visit the place... Online service works well too.

On-line beer store. Easy to use web site. Fantastic selection of beers and really fast overnight service. Prices good. Can’t ask for more.

Biggest selection of beers I’ve seen in the UK by some margin. American stuff is a little pedestrian, but still a larger range than anywhere else in Britain (why are US beers so difficult to obtain in the UK?). The website is very fast and easy to use with an excellent search facility, and (helpfully for us) appears to take its beer styles from RateBeer! Beer prices are slightly above average, but this is balanced against a relatively low shipping cost - £7.50 regardless of the number of bottles (so good for buying large volumes). Also has a selection of glassware, plus other alcoholic drinks. I ordered an awkward number of bottles (17) of an awkward variety of sizes (275ml up to 750ml) together with an awkward shaped glass (Chimay) and they all arrived in perfect condition at the promised time (next working day). Nearest best before date 4 months away, but almost all the others were a long way in the future. Pretty much unbeatable for the web service, I reckon! Must try and visit the store in person the next time I’m in Norfolk...

I’ve only used their online service, but I’m going to guess that most people will have done the same as the shop itself is out of the way and in the middle of nowhere.
The selection is superb. The website orders the beers by country and then by brewery. Around 60 countries (although some no longer have a beer in stock and probably won’t anytime soon). Great selections from the UK, Belgium, and Germany. Also a good showing of beers from the US, as well as some nice ones from Austria, Netherlands, and Denmark.
Prices were all quite reasonable. For the most part it seems like the cheapest online option in the UK. Also, for the most part, the beers were cheaper than my local shops (even with the shipping).
The one problem I have encountered with them is sometimes the beers are very close or in one or two cases past its prime. The problem arises, I’m guessing, due to the large selection, and the impossibility to turnover all those beers on time. There also seems to be no guarantee that they will restock a beer anytime soon.
The delivery was very good. Quick and prompt as well as well packaged. I’ve ordered probably 5-6 boxes from them, and have had no breaks. Shipping isn’t bad for mainland England and Wales, as it is £7.49 per order, no matter the size of the order (so save up a make a big one). Looks like it is a bit more expensive to ship to Ireland and non-mainland England/Wales. Also they only ship to the UK.
All in all, this seems like probably the best online shop for the UK. Very impressive selection, and very reliable shipping. Also it is one day shipping (if you order before noon, otherwise it will take one extra day, still not bad). Beware of beers being old, especially if it’s something that might not move fast. Other than that, highly recommended.
