"Thank you very much, this is only my first order from you but it’s lovely to be treated like a valued customer."

Mark Bundey, Sevenoaks

"No help needed, just a message thanking you for your swift delivery of my first (and definitely not the last) purchase from your company.

"Being into real ales and stouts I have struggled to find a decent low or alcohol-free beer with a real beer taste. The choices mainly being those lager or light-type beers from the supermarkets. So, requiring something more robust, I decided to do some research on the web. Several companies appeared but yours seemed to offer more range and information plus prices were very reasonable. You had exactly what I was after! I was very dubious as to what the flavours would be like but I need not have worried. The description matched perfectly and FINALLY I have some easy drinking, anytime beers which taste like..... well... beer! I particularly like the Bernard Free Beer.

"So thats it really. Excellent result all round. I shall be ordering again soon and have already passed on your company to a couple of friends."

Warren Griffiths, Stoney Stanton, Leicestershire

"Thank you Eva, lovely products and great customer service, we’ll be back and we’ll be telling everyone where we got the lovely wine from that they can enjoy and still drive!!"

Laura Marsh, Cardigan

"Speedy delivery and very pleased with the products. Having tried a few zero alcohol wines these turned out to be better than others. Also extremely happy with the selection of beers in the mixed case."

Alex Darling, Aylesbury

"I need to knock alcohol on the head after serious health problems developed last year, and my medication requires me to stop drinking. I was very dubious about how this would taste but as i love a glass of wine in the evenings, felt this was my only option. I ordered a' mixed case which arrived very promptly thanks. Drank some of the white last night it was amazing, like real wine, not the insipid tasteless pop the supermarkets sell. Superb quality, thank you."

Rosalyn Armstrong, Nottinham

"Just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with this wine (Eminasin Doce Meses). It has that length and different levels of flavour that I was missing with other non alcoholic wines."

Hilary Brown, Brighton

"I just wanted to say a massive 'Thank you'!, for saving my sanity!. I am 4 months pregnant and socializing with my friends and husband is becoming more and difficult. I am sooo terribly bored of Orange Juice and Diet Coke, that it has got to a point where I won't socialise. That was of course until I found your website. I ordered my first wines and read your instructions. I followed them to the letter, but of course I was skeptical. That was until I opened my first bottle of Merlot on a Saturday night, in front of a really good film and took the first sip!. I was utterly amazed. I really thought it would taste like grape juice!. It absolutely tasted amazing. I was so excited that I asked my husband to try the wine and he couldn't believe how good it tasted. It really has transformed my weekends and now when I see my friends, I can take one of your bottles with me and feel like I am a part of society again. The taste of the wine is just phenomenal. I really tasted the grapes and savored every mouth full. I really didn't notice that there was no alcohol in it at all - in fact I got a little red cheeked afterwards, so tricked my mind into thinking there was plenty of alcohol in it. I then opened the white wine, thinking I wouldn't get that lucky to get two great wines and again, I was surprised. It too tasted just like my favorite wine. I can't thank you enough. You have put a smile back on my face."

Donna Bennie, Hitchen

"I started ordering from you when I had to stop drinking alcohol for health reasons, and even now that I am OK to go back to wine, I have continued to drink your wines instead with only the very occasional glass of the real stuff - very impressed with your sparkling whites in particular, and your lagers, but unfortunately for me (but good for you) so is my daughter, and some friends!"

Della Pearlman, Hatfield

"Just wanted to let you know that we received our first order today. The speed of delivery was impressive, the beers were all very well packed and the bottle we tried this evening tasted great. Thank you for the excellent service."

Fraser Fergus, Aberdeenshire

"Just to let you know I visited your shop this morning and purchased 5 bottles of wine to help me through Go Sober October !! My sister also purchased a couple of bottles whilst we there for when she is on driving duty. The chap in the shop was very helpful and knowledgeable which made choosing the correct wines much easier. I am now looking forward to my Saturday nights once again and I know I will be back to purchase more very very soon. Thanks for all your kind assistance."

Bianca Jones (Manchester shop customer)

"I just wanted to say, thank you so much for your 0% wines. They have played an enormous part in helping my auntie stop drinking. Her habit is much more control and I am so grateful. I don't know what we'd have done with out you! Many thanks, and best wishes to all!"

 Customer wished to remain anonymous

"It was so lovely to meet you and I’m sure that I will be a regular there now that I know that you’re so close to the city centre. I absolutely loved the wine and I’m looking forward to trying the dark ale this weekend. Thanks again for the tasting and the wonderful customer service ☺" 

 Charlotte McLaughlin, Manchester

"Just wanted to email back to say Thank You...... my purchase has arrived already - very quick delivery and I'm delighted with the product-it tastes great!!:) I'll definately be ordering again soon"

Sharon Maplethorpe, Daventry

"I received my first order from you yesterday and want to say thank you for such prompt service. I came across you through a google search and found your website very user-friendly and very informative. I have only tried one variety from my mixed case of beers so far and enjoyed every mouthful. I hadn\'t realised that there was such a variety available. Once again thank you, I will definately return for more."

David Sutcliffe, Chipping Norton

"I would just like to say that the service I have received from the The Alcohol-Free Shop has been excellent - you have kept me updated at every stage and delivered the next day! Everything expertly packaged. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and will buy from you again. Thank you."
Jane Strudwick, Bromley

 "I just wanted to give you some feedback on your excellent service. My order arrived exactly as scheduled and could have been even sooner had I wanted it. Packaging was refreshingly all recyclable - brilliant! We have so far only sampled a bottle of the Pearl Sparling Rose and it\'s wonderful. As a vegetarian who also tries to use mainly organic produce, it\'s a total joy to have found this in an alcohol-free wine. Thank you so much for a fabulous service."
Louise Waite-Jones, Hemyock

 "I would like to thank the Alcohol Free Shop for the very prompt delivery of our case. The ease of your ordering process on the web site, your confirmation emails and the prompt delivery made the whole experience first class. It is a pleasure doing business with you."
Michele Rowlands, Peterborough

"May I just thank you for the safe arrival of my husband\'s Christmas present yesterday. You are amazing! I am sure that not everyone will have coped with delays in shipping plus hugely adverse weather conditions as well as you! I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you again"
Judith Davies, Norwich

"I just want to say a big thank you for your excellent service. I ordered a case and a half of various wines early on this week (1 Dec 2010), during the worst period of snow in Epsom (SE England). I got my package within 2 days, even though the conditions were terrible. My wife and I have already enjoyed 3 bottles in as many days. The wine is excellent. As someone who doesn\'t drink alcohol, this is perfect - such quality wines. I will be a frequent customer and will introduce many others to this excellent company, to enjoy these lovely wines!"
Prof Polycarp Luke, Epsom

"Can I just say how impressed I am with your delivery service second to none delivered within 22hrs of ordering and very well packaged and can I just say the dark non-alcoholic beers which I bought are delicious I will be ordering again for my xmas stock."
Brian Watson, Blyth

"I felt I must send an email to you to compliment you on your superb service - I only ordered from you yesterday afternoon (about 3pm) and I was amazed to receive my order this morning at about 10am. You have a most wonderful system and some excellent delivery couriers and I will be recommending your Company to anyone who is prepared to listen to me! I don\'t know how others have the nerve to ask us "to allow 28 days for delivery" - perhaps they should come and talk to you! Many thanks."
Stan Dennis, Swindon

"This is the first time we have ordered from you and we were pleasantly surprised at your choice of alcohol free wine and beers. Having tried various large chain supermarkets we discovered that their choice was dismal to say the least therefore it was enlightening to find a company such as yours. The order was processed efficiently, arrived quickly and was packaged suitably. We will definitely be back with more orders in the future. Well done."
Patricia and James Noonan, Edinburgh.

"Thank you for the case of Super Bock Dark which I picked up from your shop yesterday. For those of us who have given up alcohol for whatever reason, yet still love the feeling of a good beer going down our necks, this is a great upgrade from the alcohol-free lagers that are available in the average shop. Have not yet opened the case of Erdinger Wheat beer, but know
already that this is also a great alternative."

Paul Boothroyd, Stockport

"Friendly and informative advice, order update on-line, speedy delivery and good prices. Couldn\'t do any more to make it a better on-line shopping experience. Thank You."
Mitch Law, Weaverham, Cheshire

"Thank you for our last order, looking forward to the next one coming. Must say that the Stowford Press LA cider is an excellent drink hope that all your customers have tried at least one case. Also would like to commend you on a fantastic choice of Wines - not tried them all yet but will get there, so far every one we have tried taste great just waiting for summer. Was told to give up alcohol because of medical reasons, now passed your address on to my doctor and rest of family be expecting order from them soon. Your delivery service is second to none friendly and very helpful, please pass on my thanks to them and all the team keep up the good work."
Terry and Susan Hodge, Selby.

"I can\'t think of anything that would improve your service - I order 12 bottles of wine, and they are on my doorstep the next morning! Cheaper than collecting from supermarket as well! Bonus :)"
Susie Cater, Hampshire

"I just wanted to drop you a quick email saying thanks for my order which I have received this morning - I am so impressed with the efficiency of your service.  This is my second order from your website and on both occasions the service I have received has been excellent.  I will continue to use your website and will be recommending it to family and friends. Thank you very much"
Angela Hans, Birmingham

"After seeing my identical twin brother suffering from liver failure (due to excessive alcohol intake over 30 years) and due to the fact he now has to drink alcohol-free wine and beers and in turn has introduced me to your site, I am now an avid indulger of your fabulous range of products and very very impressed with your online service and even more impressed with your warehouse shop in Manchester. A very pleasant staff and very willing to help with tasting etc. In fact I am on the way there now to collect my next supply of alcohol free booze and hey, guess what, I have just had the all clear from my doctor who is monitoring my liver because of possible hereditary genes and my love of alcohol in the past.....try the Westons Cider ...it is brilliant!"
John Hewkin, Skelmersdale

"Just to let you know that this arrived at 09.00hr this morning, everything present and correct and beautifully packed. I can\'t believe the quality and speed of your service. Many thanks Lin."
Linda Davies, Dartford

"I thought I\'d try some white wine as I love wine but don\'t like drinking alcohol. I can\'t believe how good it tastes and I feel like I\'m drinking alcohol but it cuts out all the bad stuff! I can have a few glasses and still drive and the next morning you don\'t feel hungover!! I\'ve just made another order - thanks for great wine!!!"
Marc Ely-Harris, Bognor Regis

"I adore your site, after going teetotal last year (I am only 20!) I have bought quite a few things from your site. Giving up alcohol wasn\'t hard at all, but missing my favourite beers would have sucked, so your site\'s been a lifesaver. Thanks very much!"

Declan Proud, London

"Just wanted to say how impressed I am with (a) the wine, and (b) the service.  I have received my second case the day after I ordered it which was very impressive.  I think the Merlot is excellent and I have now become hooked on it and recommending it to everyone!  I have tried other alcohol free wines before and not been at all impressed, so its great to find one that actually feels like you are having a glass of wine and not just grape juice!"
Janet Bellairs, Kettering

"The order arrived safe and sound yesterday. Thank you very much for a very efficient service.
I am delighted with the goods. Many thanks"
Ann Thomas, Bristol

"Many thanks, this has been delivered - amazing quick service second to none!"
Sandie McGlynn, Yorkshire

"I think both these wines are terrific - I have lost a stone since the beginning of January as I have also been drinking the marvellous Holsten non-alcoholic beer. Well done to you for stocking these super drinks!"
Alice Harper, Colchester

"I have just downed my 1st can - excellent. Many thanks for such prompt service. Cheers !!!"

Ian Clark, Surrey

"I am really happy with the products and have found some favourites already!"
Sarah, York

"Just wanted to thank you for the order that arrived safely today. Well packaged and swiftly delivered, most impressed. Also found ordering from the website very easy and the information with the wines was very helpful for making selections. All in all a very pleasant experience and I\'m sure we\'ll be back for more."
John Dawson, Birmingham

"I have been hugely impressed by your efficient processing of orders and the speed of delivery.  I have already recommended you to a number of people (not least for the good of their health), some of whom have since placed orders and have been delighted with the products."
Dr. Peter Cooil, Liverpool

"The wine made a huge difference this Christmas. My daughter, who is 8 months pregnant and me (the guy trying to limit his intake), had a great time. We both felt included in everything yet remained alcohol free, while drinking wines that we both enjoyed - perfect!!"
George Paton, South Lanarkshire

"All arrived safely, excellent service, thank you."
Judith Maccoll, Edinburgh

"Many thanks for a wonderful web site and service. I had given up hope of enjoying beer again !!! I shall use your shop again when I\'ve run out !! Any chance of finding Guinness alcohol free ?"
Lee Busby, Derby

"Every two years I take a 12 week complete break from drinking alcohol and I find the results to be wonderful. For one thing I believe this enables the liver to recover from the effects of regular usage of alcohol but also it helps me to keep my weight down (I lose a stone each time I do it). During each 12 week stint I always missed the taste of beer and wine, but now, with the help of your products, my desire for alcoholic wine and beer has almost disappeared completely. I have even served your beer to friends who were unable to spot the non-alcoholic beer from the ordinary stuff. Praise indeed!"
Kenneth Edwards, Llandudno
