  9. Your service is exemplary; easy to order, wide selection of ‘baccos and brands, Very fast delivery, panic sheet packaging for idle hands =D
    only stop for my pipe baccos online now, as its so hard to find a high street tobacconist nowadays, only one in my town states he is a tobacconist, but when i asked if he could order a particular brand in he said “i can only order from the catalog, and that’s whats on the shelf! – unbranded aromatics which he couldn’t tell me if they were English or us Virginia or anything really just usual ‘cherry, whiskey, chocolate, 3 vanillas’…( the only non aromatic was “black and brown” he said.
    love you guys good job chaps!

  10. Always accurate and timely. Consistently very impressive turnaround between order and delivery.

  11. The Best service I have ever come across, this is a business which puts the customer’s needs first. From now on I am only ordering from F. Duckworth.

  60. I would imagine it would be very difficult to find a business in the U.K. with a better customer service than Duckworth’s, Chris and his team have looked after my pipe and tobacco needs for many years now and the service is always improving.

  67. This was my first pipe and my first smoke after getting to 40 years old!. I had been looking for a tobacconist store for a while where I live with no luck (I live in a little village). I didn’t think I’d have any luck on-line, but Then I found Duckworths! Excellent store with all you want in the same place, no more hunting for different things!. Ordering was easy and despatch was very fast and well packed. I will be back again soon, since I’m a newbie I will want to try different tobaccos Thanks for the first class postal service!.

  68. Bought my first pipe this week and decided to get some tobacco from here.Very pleased with the speedy delivery. Will shop here again.


    too much of this on the website.

    i can understand the need to let ppl know the dangers of smoking. i am more than positive that ppl already know this.

    maybe reduce it to once per page rather than every line.

  70. Thank you so much for another fine delivery. My husband will be in heaven on our vacations smoking his pipe! We will always use your shop. Thank you once again!!

  71. called in and bought my first pipe and supplies today, very helpful, a pleasure to buy from. I’m looking forward t my next visit.

  80. I found this seller by accident online, I now buy all my tobacco and pipe accessroies from here. WELL DONE chaps

  84. In answer to the question about James’s of Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton, it didn’t go anywhere – it simply closed down. I used to go there to purchase tobacco, pipe cleaners and pipe filters. After it closed I found another shop nearby which stocked Kendal Black Cherry but I could never find any Big Ben filters. I began using this site around that time (must be a couple of years ago) and the service has been excellent.

  85. A very good service and a life-line. Does anyone know where James’s of Lichfiels Street, Wolverhampton went to?

  86. Many thanks to you all, you’ve never let me down. Quality goods and quality service!!!

    Any chance of the Duke of York blend loose pipe tobacco? Keep up the good work 🙂

  87. Excellent site with very fast delivery times. Keep up the good work.

  88. Ordered Sunday pm, delivered Tuesday am. Well packed, and by Royal Mail post. I will certainly order from this site again.

  89. Ordered at 2pm and received my item the next day.

    Excellent service, thanks alot

  90. Matter resolved. Many thanks. Truly honest and great service.

  91. I already placed my 4th order and I’m almost fully pleased with the service so far.
    On my 3rd order I received a wrong item and no response from the company on that when I placed the fourth one. (I wrote in the notes to the order so that the company would not get me the wrong item again (I ordered Amphora filters and received Adsorba ones)
    Other than that I am perfectly pleased with the communication, delivery and quality of the goods and if the matter will be resolved there will be no more place for me to buy something for my smoking needs and all the recommendations will go here.

  92. Mr. Duckworth, you have yet another satisfied customer! Although I had problems with the delivery company, you were professional and kind enough to solve the problem quickly over the phone, and have made me feel like a valued customer. Not enough companies know how to do this sort of thing in the age of e-mail and call-centres, and it is your commitment to customers that makes you shine above the competition. Many thanks!

  93. Great Service i would recommend you to my pipe smoking friends, I am a first time buyer and found the process easy with fast delivery. Fantastic, I’ll be back!

  94. Thank you for your excellent service! This is my second order and will keep shopping with you for all my Pipe and tobacco items.

    Have already reccommended my friends.

    I am new to pipe smoking, and in the “finding the right pipe and tobacco” stage great choice and really easy to shop on the site!

  95. Hi All,
    Just recieved my order, super fast delivery and sooooo pleased with goods, such a nice change to get this kind of service. With so much choice on your web site and easey to use too, others could and should take note of your kind of customer service. Many thanks, you get my vote of confidence, I will recomend you to all my smoking friends.

  96. Excellent site with wide range of choice and prompt service. Second order just placed and I don’t think I’ll be looking anywhere else!

  97. I am 27 years old. I have decided to become a pipe smoker because of the memories of my grandfather. I rememeber sitting on his knee listening to WW2 stories. The smell of pipe tobacco brings me right back and I tried smoking a pipe at christmas. I loved it. I look forward to many years of enjoyable smoking. I would like to ask though, am I the youngest pipe smoker? I do hope this fantastic hobby does not die out!

  98. First Class service, Arrived in perfect condition, I will do all my shopping here again.

  99. Many thanks for a first class service. Recieved my first order day after placing it,-even though it was outside the Christmas deadline. WELL DONE,I will certainly use you exclusively for all my Future smoking requisites. Thanks again and Happy Christmas To You All M J BAYLISS.

  100. Received beautiful leather tobacco pouch and delight with it , thank you.

  101. Congratulations on reaching your 10th anniversary shortly. Have used your site for a few years now and would highly recommend the professional and trustworthy way in which you conduct your business. First class service and first rate choice. Heres to the next 10 years of success.

  102. Hello;
    I sent in a colibri pipe lighter for repair,it was just in its warranty. Mr chris duckworth sent the lighter to colibri for repair, and twice he was not happy with the repair by colibri, he then sent me a new lighter instead, This tells me that chris cares for his customers and products, i will be using duckworths in the future for my smoking needs, thank you very much chris, first class sevice

  103. Excellent service. Order placed late in the day, dispatched the following day and received the next day. Highly recommended.

  104. A very reliable and excellent service

  105. Having used your services for a number of years, I would say that all the plaudits that you receive are well deserved. I have been hugely impressed with the speed and efficiency of your mail order service over the years. When I was in Wales recently I was able to pop into your shop and I was delighted with the friendly service received. My only, minor, quible would be that you appear to have some pipe tobaccos available in the shop that are not on the website!
    In view of the comprehensive range you do offer, this might seem like a carping criticism but I did purchase one tobacco from the store which I thought was excellent but have been unable to find it on the website.
    For other readers, I would reccomend a trip to Duckworths if you happen to be near Colwyn Bay. A truly excellent and unique store!

  106. Bought my first tobacco from this company, ak dutch and ak vanilla, both arrived wonderfully promptly, and my god are they good! Especially the vanilla, I had doubts about flavoured tobacco, but i will be ordering again soon, love the site and the products! I’m looking forward to trying something new when i finish this lot!!

    Another satisfied customer.

  107. Great site and super service. I stopped smoking for a while when Dunhill (Medium Mixture) disappeared but missed my pipe and so am trying to find a mixture to suit me – no luck so far but its fun looking. I smoked Dobies mixture for years till that went the way of all things.

  108. Hi All,
    Love the new look web page, would like to say better but the old one was exellent too so the new one is, BETTER than exellent.
    I am a relatively new customer to UK Tobacco, been using them for about 4 months now, have purchased several pipes and tobaccos from them. I can not recommend this company enough, their goods and service are first class and if you ever have to telephone them, they are very, very helpful in every way. They make you feel like a special member to any club. So Thank you Uk Tobacco and long may you stay with us and always be the front runners in your chosen field.
    Its hard now a days to be a smoker but you make me feel important.

  109. I am a regular customer & have found the service consistantly reliable and efficent. Thank you.

  110. My falcon pipe stem came loose from the bowl after about 3 months use and I returned it and received a replacement stem within 48 hours and no charge.

    Thank you for your prompt attention

  111. I sent a pipe to have its stem repaired, and I am extremely pleased with the result. I have more pipes to send for repair, and I know that they will be repaired to the highest standard. I also order tobacco from “Duckworths” and I must say that they have the most extensive stock that I have come across. WELL DONE111.

  112. I’ve been buying my flavoured tobacco from UKtobacco for five years now, your service is great and I recommend you to all my smoking friends.

  113. May i once again express my gratitude for the 1st class service, many thanks

  114. I have just placed a second order as the service I recieved for my first order was excellent, Thank you

  115. Just received my latest order promptly, as normal, despite the postal strike.
    Many thanks.

  116. Good to find a site that caters for the beleagued smoker! Site easy to use with more choice than available on my local highstreet.

  117. First class service,Have recommended you to my friends
