We are very grateful to our clients who have taken the time and trouble to provide valuable written (over 260 to date) and verbal feedback about our products and service, and we hope this helps prospective clients to make an informed decision.

We understand the apprehension about ordering products remotely and indeed, for most of us, it takes a leap of faith to do so, particularly for 'big ticket' items. It may surprise you to know however, that many of our customers do place their orders this way (usually because they live some distance away) and their confidence in us, has been duly rewarded by their purchase exceeding their expectations. 

To verify this, we have added a relevant note to some of the testimonials below (i.e. ordered from website or ordered online) showing a few of the many clients who put their trust in us. 

Of course, we welcome (and positively encourage) you to visit our showroom, where you can see first hand why we are likely the best source of high quality reproduction oak furniture and accessories in the UK. But, if for any reason you are one of the 50% that can't make it down to us, rest assured that we will deliver what you expect...and more.

IMPORTANT: Publishing fake testimonials is not only extremely unethical, but is now a criminal offence under UK law. All our testimonials are bona fide and 100% accurate extracts from letters and emails received and held on file at our showroom, in addition to others submitted independently by our clients, direct to our entry on Trading Standards - Buy With Confidence website (link opens in a new window/tab). As members of this scheme, a Trading Standards Officer has checked our testimonials for authenticity, as part of a rigorous audit, prior to acceptance.

Some latest recommendations received: 

Lorna, London, 19.4.24, ordered via email:
"Sorry for the slow reply (had a bit of time off over Easter) but just to say we absolutely LOVE our table. It is a complete work of art – I can’t stop myself touching the beautiful carving all the time. Attached is a photo to show you what it looks like in situ (although the light doesn’t really do justice to the carving). We christened it immediately with a family chinese takeaway. Feels really like it should have been something grander! Thanks so much to you and your team (including the delivery guys who had to work pretty hard to get it in!). Hoping we’ll be back for more in the future."

AJ, Oxfordshire, 8.4.24, ordered via email:
"Just a quick email to say I received the table this morning - it is so beautiful!!! And you really didn't skimp on the material either, just wonderful :). I am really looking forward to using this for the next few decades and passing it on so others can enjoy it once I'm done!" 

Ian, Cambridgeshire, 29.2.24, ordered via email:
"Delivery was on time and courteous. We are very pleased with the chair thank you. Colour matching of the leather with the desk [we also supplied] is spot-on, the chair looks good and is very comfortable. We are very happy with both desk and chair; the workmanship and finish are top quality" 

Gill & Jon, Essex, 9.2.24, visited showroom:
"Table and chairs delivered safely yesterday by courteous and careful delivery men. The table and chairs are superb. Exactly what we wanted and even better than we were expecting. Many thanks." 

Interior Designer, Herefordshire, 6.2.24, ordered via email:

Anita, Herefordshire, 5.2.24, ordered via interior designer:
"I purchased a dining table which was delivered last week. I love it. Please can you tell me how to look after it/clean it."  [After-care sheet sent]  

Paul, Lincolnshire, 2.2.24, ordered via email:

Plus new additions posted independently (of over 160), on our Trading Standards - Buy With Confidence page: 

  • We had to wait for a considerable period from time of first ordering to delivery because we had to wait for other prior orders to be completed. The product quality is exceptional and that fact is supported by the popularity causing delays to fulfilment of orders. At all times we were made to feel important customers and the delivery personnel were careful, caring and courteous.
    Note from ourselves: Whilst some commissions can take some time, the manufacture of our client's piece in this instance was completed within our typical quoted 8-12 week period.     
  • Nick Berry's love for what he creates is reflected in the sheer quality of the furniture. If possible, turn the item over and see the workmanship involved; I bought chairs. The purchase was an engaging experience and I look forward to returning. Thank you.
  • Superb workmanship.
  • Nick was extremely polite and patient when resolving the many queries I had on commissioning a 4.2m dining table and chairs. My errors were, thankfully, corrected and the result was spectacular and life-enhancing and will give my descendants joy for, I think and hope, centuries. Worth every pound now and worth more in the future.    
  • Nick Berry and the team at Early Oak Reproductions cannot be praised highly enough. They have been a delight to deal with: professional, polite and helpful. The quality of the work is exemplary and I have no hesitation in recommending them unreservedly.    
  • I've been impressed by the quality of the item and the service, the communication and the professionality.    
  • Incredibly helpful from first contact right through to delivery of commissioned unique item. Beautiful, bespoke oak TV stand - a lovely piece of furniture but designed in such a way as to be practical too - no regrets investing in this item!    
  • Working with Nick from Early Oak Reproductions was a pleasure from start to finish. EOR had to adapt one of their tables to allow for an acrylic cloche to fit on top. We worked with EOR to ensure that our cloche fitted perfectly. The product that we received was on time and exceeded our expectations. Communication was clear and always professional. We hope we can work with EOR again in the near future.    
  • Excellent service. Clear communication. Delivered as agreed on time. Beautiful workmanship. I would be very happy to do business again with Nick and his team.    
  • We were pleased with the service we received. We travelled from Shropshire (235 miles) so that we could view the furniture and make a careful decision. Always easy to contact with any problems.   
  • Exactly what we wanted.    
  • Friendly & informative. Product description was as expected. Delivery was efficient. Very pleased with the product and would use this company again.   
  • Excellent communication and service. Product delivered promptly and well packaged.
  • Nick was very helpful in creating a bespoke TV stand for us. We had to make a few amends and he was really accommodating. The end product is lovely.    
  • lovely produce and the company was very flexible for us.    
  • This was my second order with Early Oak. I am delighted with the two settles they made for me. Top quality and nice people to deal with.    
  • From start to finish everything was just brilliant. I found Early Oak Reproductions online and gave them a call to chat through my requirements. Nick was really helpful and sent me colour wood samples. I placed my order for a bespoke Large square potboard table. I was not disappointed, when my table arrived it was just perfect, beautifully made, perfect colour and fitted exactly where it was intended for too. A massive thank you to Nick and his team for my gorgeous table - I am totally thrilled with it and will be one of those pieces that gets passed down through the generations.    
  • The chairs I wanted were a bespoke modification of hand carved chairs on the website. Nick had to draw the chairs and then make the component parts before getting them carved. A slight delay resulted from Covid which was communicated quickly with no drama. Very very happy with the results, absolutely stunning.
  • I was so pleased with both the service and product that I've since ordered another piece of bespoke furniture.

"Thank you - the delivery was fine and we are absolutely delighted with the chairs and cannot believe how perfectly you have copied them - I suspect some very clever wizardry must have been involved!!  I will send you photos shortly of them in situ in our dining room. I don't know whether I told you but the chairs have been in our family for many years (at least 100, I think) and there were originally 8 but 4 were in store in London and were destroyed when the warehouse got bombed in the blitz.  My mother, long dead now, was particularly fond of the chairs and would have been absolutely thrilled that we have reinstated 8 chairs and they certainly look grand in our home. Kind regards and many thanks for doing this."

"We've had a great experience from start to finish with Early Oak Reproductions. Nick picked me up at the train station and dropped me back when I came from London to look at the showroom. The table we ordered is fantastic quality and will last for generations. When we experienced one issue with the height needing a modest adjustment, a workman came to our house within a week and fixed it on the spot no questions asked. He even refused a tip saying that we were the ones inconvenienced."    

Mr & Mrs Tarin, Gloucestershire, 11.5.05, ordered after viewing clients home:

"We are still more than pleased with our fabulous table, chairs, bed and bedside tables. The only issue we did have, we thought you remedied very well when you and one of your craftsmen came to the house to fix it. So we have no complaints. Your furniture is admired by all our visitors. Most people think that they're the 'genuine article' (ie. considerably older than they are!), and we've had several people asking where we got them. We told them, of course. Anyway, we love the furniture you made for us..."

I have to say I was a little unsure to order a table from a website but your professionalism from the start to finish put me at ease. Thank you for the samples you sent, to the finished table. Myself and my wife love the table and hope to have many memories with family and friends. I would have no hesitation to recommend you to family and friends."

Mrs Chivers, Somerset, 5.12.10, ordered from website:

"As you know we placed an order for the above dresser from you back in September having seen it on your website, and took delivery on Friday 26th November. It looked and seemed real value for money from the photograph, but being so far away based in Somerset, we had no opportunity to visit your works and see the dresser for ourselves that it was truly as good as it looked!! I had to write and let you know that it is a most impressive piece of furniture and looks just like the real thing. The ageing is perfect and the quality of workmanship superb. We are delighted with it and with the service received, especially from your driver who battled through the bad weather and a breakdown to deliver late on the Friday evening. That's what I call service!! I would have no hesitation in recommending your company and will pass on your details to all those admirers who see the dresser and will no doubt be as impressed as me. Once again, many thanks for a job very well done."

"About 45 years ago I happened to go to Tunbridge Wells, and from a distance saw a shop that looked different, just had to go in (wow) that is where I met Leonard Lassalle (wow) what a shop and what a man. Leonard has instigated some of the best collections of 17th century oak furniture both in the UK and abroad. Quite recently I wanted to purchase a coffee table, a 20th century invention, but how's that going to work, I thought. Then I remembered seeing Oak Reproductions Alfriston on the internet so I went to [see] them. The service was congenial and the workmanship was fantastic.

Mr Fair, Argyll, 2.7.12, ordered from website:

It's a fact of life that, on rare occasions, things can go wrong..."It was a real tragedy for both parties when the table we ordered was damaged in transit (not by our usual carriers). However, I was concious that you tried every avenue, including your trade association, to find a solution to the problem. As we are on an isolated part of the west coast of Scotland, this could not have been an easy task, to find a furniture restorer. The Waterworths, on the Isle of Islay, did an excellent job of restoration, I believe even your craftsmen would be hard pressed to identify the original damage sites. We are extremely pleased with the table and used it for the first time, full extended, for a family occasion. It has been much admired and will be a delight for some years to come. Thanks again for all your concern and efforts to make good what was initially a bad situation."

Trevor & Sheila Palmer, Sussex, 4.5.12, visited showroom:

"We approached Nick at Early Oak Reproductions in December 2011 to help with the sourcing of a Glazed Oak Display Cabinet as we could not find exactly what we were looking for in the normal furniture shops. With Nick's assistance and expertise we created a new 'bespoke' design based on two of his existing stock pieces with one or two extra twiddles. The price which he achieved for a bespoke piece (including VAT and delivery) was highly competitive and a lot less than any comparative piece in the specialist High Street shops. Manufacture was quoted as 8-12 weeks but in the event turned out to be 16 weeks, but in mitigation this was for a one-off design which was in it self somewhat complex. The wait was frustrating but was totally worth it when we first saw the Cabinet, we may be biased, but we think that it is beautiful! We would unreservedly recommend Early Oak Reproductions to anyone who wants high quality oak furniture at a good price, especially if you cannot find what you want 'off the shelf', (but don't be surprised if your 'bespoke' furniture cannot quite make the 12 week window, it will be well worth the wait)."

Patricia, Kent, 23.4.14, visited showroom:

"...we are thoroughly delighted with the chairs they will look wonderful in our dining room which is currently our kitchen storage room as we are remodelling our kitchen, so much going on but, we really love them the fabric looks so good and matches everything, they are everything we hoped for.

Angus, Fortrose, 19.6.13, ordered from website:

"Furniture arrived on schedule just after noon yesterday. Having seen only small samples, we were a little bit uncertain as to what to expect. The actual furniture exceeded our best expectations. The appearance, authenticity and craftsmanship are outstanding. Having had some experience in the Joinery business, I am particularly impressed with the hand planed finish to the table top. Quite exceptional. Your advice to use the Futura aniline treated leather upholstery also a masterstroke. Thank you very much for your assistance and close attention throughout the entire ordering process. Made matters very easy. P.S. Your delivery man, Jon is a star, everything properly packed in the van, unloaded and installed with humour and no fuss."

George, Lancs, 26.6.13, ordered from website:

Also, it is far better than anything else that we have seen - and we have been looking for quite a while. Best wishes and thanks"

Deborah, Midlands, 8.6.20, order by email:

"Nick thank you. My daughter is so pleased with it. Thank you so much for all the trouble you so kindly went through for me. You really did go the extra mile. With all good wishes."

Mr Poulopoulos, Northants, 2.4.10:

"You should know that having spent the past 1-2 months researching websites, etc. your site was far the best in my opinion. (order subsequently placed by enquirer)"

Bev, Warwickshire, 25.6.18, visited showroom:

Mr & Mrs Hagon, Sussex, 9.8.10, ordered from showroom:

"Yes, we are still very pleased with the dressing table and stool! Thank you for chasing up the fabric - we will try and call in later in the week. It will give us another excuse to look at your showroom!"

Chris, Suffolk, 22.8.13, ordered via email:

"When the item arrived (earlier than expected) we were over the moon! With the inclusion of the additional "bespoke" features, it is exactly what we had been looking for, fitting so well into our room, and matching/complimenting the other antique furniture we have...the difficulty trying to find a Medieval TV Cabinet being obvious! The quality and finish are excellent and I am sure it will become a family heirloom. Many thanks."

Mrs Woodley, Lancs, 17.11.12, ordered from website:

Pieter and An, The Netherlands, 9.5.14, visited showroom:

"Herewith on your request a picture of our two equally nice and equally high quality, but each so totally different beds made by your company 'Early Oak'. One being a cozy four poster, the other one a very comfortable 75cm above ground mattress height light oak bed in gothic style. Expensive..? Only a fraction when compared to the Elizabeth 1 oak and inlaid tester bed incorporating some associated and some later elements sold on April 30 2014 at the Bonhams Oak Sale for not less than £62,500 (76,475 euros). While at the same time our 'Early Oak' beds are bearing our own coat of arms, not the one of someone else and our beds were designed from the beginning on to accommodate the unequivocally healthy Hastens mattress system! Durable..? Like the Elizabeth 1 bed, every detail was made by hand in solid oak. Yes, please come back in 400 years and check..."

Barnhard, Scotland, 25.3.23, ordered via email:

We have it in our hallway, where we think it looks splendid against the brick wall - see attached photo, which of course you are welcome to show to other customers if you wish. The size is perfect for six diners - we've not had the chance to try 8 people round it yet, which will be more intimate but easily achievable!"
