About US

The senior barber, and founder of The Gentlemans’ Retreat, James Herrington, realised at the age of 24 years old that most traditional values and services expected by discerning customers had largely disappeared from the high street. His vision has created the look and feel of days gone by where a gentleman could relax and enjoy a little ‘me’ time in a quirky and fascinating atmosphere.

The Gentlemans’ Retreat has evolved to become the place in the region where a gentleman is able to call it their own, feel special, get that extra sharp look and be pampered. James’ unique outlook on life is fresh and old fashioned at the same time.

The Gentlemans’ Retreat has become a vital and unique combination of a one stop male grooming salon, a leading tattoo studio and a 1920’s ‘speak easy’ offering fine drinks such as high end and rare whiskeys and Brandy. Poker nights are a regular and very popular attraction.

The Gentlemans’ Retreat offers complementary Wi-Fi for all guests.
