Dedicated Family-Run Kitchen Specialists

Our founder, John Ladbury, crafted his first bespoke, handmade kitchen in 1978. The quality and attention to detail resonating from our work quickly earned us an outstanding reputation, which we are very proud to uphold. Since then, John has happily retired, leaving his sons David and Stephen to run the company. As an independent, family business with a rich heritage, our traditional values are very much at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing our local clients with the finest handcrafted kitchens and exemplary service, as they’ve come to expect.
