Crabtree & Evelyn is an old fashioned shop which has been successful internationally. They sell wonderful toiletries, including soap and bath gel as well as fragrances, candles and gifts. Just the sort of place to keep the female in your life out of if you don't wish to lighten your wallet. Their products can also be found in John Lewis, Army & Navy Stores, House of Fraser, Liberty's, Selfridges, Peter Jones and Harrods.

The second building (Harkers) originally was that of a finance company, hence the affordablility of a neo-classical facade, which sort of ties in with the fact that it overlooks the old Roman entrance.
Harkers is a bar and restaurant that serves a variety of European and vegetarian dishes. Catering for private parties of up to 40 guests is available upon request. On Thursday nights, they also have live music. Happy Hour is on Fridays and Saturdays from 4pm until 8pm.
