I have been loyal to The Snip for many years, and this will continue. The service is personal and friendly, and the hair cut is very good. This is a gents hairdresser, not a back-street barbers, so don't expect super-cheap prices. It's well worth it, though, you will find that they take the time to make you welcome, listen and do a good job.

Prices are fair as the service is impeccable and they do go the extra mile here.

As ever, the haircuts are great, and they can do pretty much anything to suit any kind of customer (you'll see young and old come in here!). Though I usually book, walk ins are available. Prices are fair as the service is impeccable and they do go the extra mile here.
