Simon Turner and his team just can't be faulted price, quality and timeliness. pt visit and almost instant quote was a revelation. And compared with other quotes, his price almost too good to be true. Within 2 weeks of accepting the quote, Mal and Matt were getting on with the job, which took just a day and a half. No fuss, no mess, just efficiency and friendliness. I can't recommend Simon Turner highly enough. Thanks to you and all your team. Well deserved 5 star service.

So glad to finally have a proper grown up Bathroom at last.

The music, with its fairly spare sound consisting largely of guitars and pianos, is sometimes reminiscent of early Gavin Bryars (circa Hommages) though with a propensity to suddenly break into a bar.
