An Aladins Cave of Hardware

Romanys Shepherd Street is on the edge of Mayfair, a short walk from Picadilly and Green Park tube. I’ve previously visited their other branch Romanys Brewer Street but I’ve moved offices and the Shepherd Street branch is now closer.

I popped in this week looking for some M4 x 50 screws for a drawer handle. The shop appears to be tiny when you first step into it and has a traditional long counter. However, there are stairs leading up and down to rooms stacked floor to ceiling with shelves of hardware and tools. The friendly staff directed to the basement where there was a wall of screws of various purpose and sizes including drawers for the smaller sizes. I quickly found what I was looking for and had a quick look around the rest of the floor which had lights, a large range of plumbing bits and pipes, safety signs, paint and varnish.
