Damaged seat

The front piece of the seat had been torn off damaging the dowel pins and one of the seats cross members. I don't think the delivery people caused this because an attempt had been made to staple the damaged cross member and the carton was intact.

Good purchase

Very pleased with comfortable solid bench. One of the back slats is very discoloured - hence a missing star - but hey lets call it character. Flat slats and five foot width avoids need for separate table.

Very poor quality

For the price I expected far better quality. Dents in the wood, strap marks, black stains and so on. Plus missing instructions and fixings. For a £200 bench, it was not at the level of quality of cheaper ones. Yes it is solid and thick sectioned (and heavy), but it had to be returned (which took 2 weeks).

Great quality

Searched for the Emily benches after seeing them in a garden centre. Cheaper on line so we ordered two. One arrived damaged with the screws missing but the damaged & missing parts were very quickly replaced. They are good quality - a lovely addition to our cottage garden!

Excellent quality

We had problems with the delivery as only one of two parcels delivered. Suppliers were extremely helpful with sorting the problem out with couriers and upgraded us to a Saturday delivery free of charge. Excellent quality bench and couldn't beat the price .

Can I buy protectors for the legs to prevent rot?

Dear Ian Thank you for your question. We do not offer leg protectors as the wood is pressure treated with a 10 year guarantee against rot and decay.
