Im writing this on behalf of my Mum, who visited last Monday and was so impressed with the staff, shop layout and variety of stock. Philippa was extremely helpful and professional, making her feel very comfortable and at ease whilst trying various outfits on. Having travelled over two hours, she was glad it was a successful visit and well worth the journey.
I visited the shop on Monday 13th February 2017 in search of a Mother of the Bride outfit. It was very busy & I felt it would have been better to have booked an appointment. However, that said, the staff were lovely & all of them so helpful & attentive. As mentioned by others, the shop is arranged by colours so it was easy to look for what I had in mind. I tried several outfits on & nothing was too much trouble. We went out for a cup of tea & went back again to purchase my outfit. Thanks very much Compton House of Fashion. I shall probably be back for my accessories!!
Thank you Compton House! Jo was excellent, she quickly understood what i was looking for and importantly, what sort of outfit suited me the best. I'm thrilled with my outfit - looking even more forward to my daughters wedding in June! Thanks again. Sandra Jones.
An incredible shop with an amazing selection of dress particularly in my size 8/10! The staff were so helpful not pushy suggesting different outfits to try nothing was too much trouble and they have the patience of saints! I came out with an amazing outfit and a hat with the wow factor, which normally I would not have even tried on! My second son is getting married in the autumn and I shall return.
What a joy to visit a shop with such a huge range of stock to choose from, I had an idea which outfit would suit me but Jo (2) suggested that I try additional styles before deciding on my choice. All the staff are extremely helpful and at no time did I feel under pressure to make a purchase, I was asked if I had a budget in mind which is a kind consideration but I knew before my visit I was happy to pay a higher price than on the high street for such a special occasion as my sons wedding.

I visited Compton House yesterday (after a 2hr drive) for an outfit for my daughter's wedding. I had initially phoned to ask about a specific dress. When I arrived I was very impressed with such a wonderful selection of outfits. I chose my outfit and the assistant (Wendy) was extremely helpful especially with choosing the right hat. The hat was a different make to the dress so she said to go downstairs into the daylight for her to ensure that the colours matched, which they did perfectly. She certainly had a lot of patience with me regarding hatinators and hats. The whole experience was very relaxed, excellent service and I would highly recommend them to anyone. In fact, I have today told the mother of the groom about the shop.
Visited here a couple of days ago to choose a MOB outfit and my mum and I thought the service and selection was fantastic! We were served by Liz who was the perfect amount helpful. She offered advice on style and colour without being pushy or overbearing. We never felt pressured to purchase or at all rushed even though mum tried on A LOT of outfits. Both mum and I had a lovely day and would highly recommend the shop to those looking for that special occasion outfit.
Having looked around in South Wales I was disappointed with the choice of Mother of the Bride outfits on sale. I wanted something with a strong colour. My friends and I made the journey to Compton House of Fashion yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased. Tanya was very welcoming, understood immediately what I was looking for and very quickly picked out a couple of things for me to try. Within half an hour I had made my decision and now can't wait for my daughters wedding in July.
We had such a friendly greeting which made us feel so at ease. Jo attended to us in an extremely efficient, professional and friendly manner. Although the dress which I thought I wanted wasn't available, this certainly didn't faze Jo who found several suitable dresses for me to try, finally arriving at the 'perfect' one for me. I am a senior bride, I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable experience and I have already recommended a visit to Compton House of Fashion to two close friends. Very many thanks.
I was here in 2014 for my daughters wedding and I'm now going to head back as my daughter gets married in April. We travel 2 hours and trust me it's worth it. There are so many choices and the staff are all so helpful and friendly. I'm looking forward to my visit in a few weeks �
Compton House has been my favourite shop for very special outfits for a number of years. On Saturday the 14th January I made a visit to buy a wedding outfit for the my brothers wedding in April and a wedding in Canada in October. Again I was not disappointed I was welcomed, helped and advised without feeling rushed. I came away with a beautiful dress which I feel comfortable in and feel very special. A big thank you the staff are a credit to Compton House. Best wishes Hazel Harding
My mother in law to be asked me to write a review as she doesnt have facebook. She was initailly worried about shopping for a dress as wanted to do at her own pace and didnt want to feel like someone was just trying to sell her something. She visited twice and both times she felt really relaxed and didnt feel any pressure at all. The lady on the first visit was great with constructive feedback which really narrowed down a colour and a fit. She bought her dress for the wedding on the second visit off of the back of a recommendation from the lady on the first visit of a dress they had coming in. She is really very pleased. Would easily recommend!! Xx
I decided to visit Compton House after seeing it on the internet and from a recommendation of a friend who had her outfit with you last year. I visited on my own intending just to have a browse as this was my first outing for a 'Mother of the Groom' dress! I was very impressed with the sheer amount of outfits in every shade of colour across all size ranges. Immense selection, and being able to try on my actual size rather than guessing what it would look like from a smaller or larger outfit was perfect. Diane was so attentive and not a bit 'pushy', she was so tactful and so helpful. Diane helped me 'weed' out what didn't suit me and encouraged me to try all designs so I had the best from my visit. After over two hours I finally found my dress but the time flew and I am not normally a happy shopper! But this experience was something else, so calm and I didn't break out into a sweat at all! Normally I am the type to buy it and try at home as I hate the undressing and dressing of a changing room. But the shop is spacious and not claustrophobic. I left with my dress and large (very large) hat extremely pleased with myself. HOWEVER the icing on the cake came when I found the hat I had brought home had a slight flaw, I photographed it and emailed the shop that same night with the details of what was wrong. The next day I received a call first thing from Wendy who was so apologetic and said another hat would be in the post straightaway which I received 2 days later in perfect condition? I have worked in Customer Service for 39 years, and this last act proved Compton House is a cut above the others. My experience with the faulty hat could have been a long drawn out fight for my shoppers rights but instead it was so easy and stress free. Thank you everyone one! I cannot praise you enough, you have got it just right. Lots of choice, in lots of colours and sizes, friendly easy to communicate with staff and an owner who has the customer's at the heart of her business! Keep up the fantastic work.
Two day ago my daughter and I went to buy and outfit for me for her wedding. We eventually narrowed it down to two. I came away with the wild card which my daughter chose. It has gone done a storm on a bridal website. Over 1,000 comments, many saying I should have both! Dozens asked for details of shop, so be prepared girls. Thank you all for your help and kindness.
This was my second visit to Compton House. Jo assisted me in finding the outfit that suited me and fitted the best. There is a huge choice of dresses and the staff are very good at making the visit a pleasurable experience. I am now ready for the February wedding. Thank you ladies
I ordered my Ronald Joyces dress from Australia for my daughters wedding. The ladies from Compton House made my exerience wonderful from first email I sent uptil I got my dress in front of me. I would recommend anybody not to be scared to order online from Compton House because the Ronald Joyce dresses they sell are more than value for money and with their good service you can only get to the conclusion, to do that again because the size fit was extremely good and the selection go from pretty to more pretty. That was a very big highlight and will not forget the experience soon.
Our Renewal of Vow Ceremony was very quickly put together and held in the presence of my Father, family and friends. I was rushing around looking for a suitable outfit. So pleased that I found Compton House of Fashion. A lady called Jo was extremely helpful and professional and I purchased an Ann Balon Greta three piece suit in a beautiful blue. I would not have managed to find such a lovely outfit without the help of Jo and I am truly grateful to her. Our ceremony was amazing and superb and I will wear the outfit again with pride. Best wishes.
This shop is an Aladdin's Cave full of jewels......those being the outfits of all colours and styles, with matching accessories and diamonds of assistants to help you with your choice. I loved every minute of being there and look forward to a return visit in the near future. This is definitely THE PLACE to go for a special occasion outfit. Thank you Ladies.
I am delighted with the Mother of the Bride outfit I found at Compton House. It was exactly the style and design I was looking for, as it had to be a complete contrast to the outfit I had worn for my other daughter's wedding. Liz was incredibly helpful and although I did not make the decision to purchase on the Saturday afternoon, I went back on the Tuesday with a very close and discerning friend and tried it on again. It is now hung up in my wardrobe, along with the matching hat, and any friend who has popped round has been given a sneak preview. I think I will be going back again as I would like to buy one of the stunning hats to go with a previous purchase. Thank you again to all the staff at Compton House, who clearly all love their jobs - who wouldn't!
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they don't push you into buying anything, but give very honest opinions. Would always go here first, before trying anywhere else
All set for my daughter's wedding in December! Dress, jacket, hat, shoes and bag! Brilliant service made to feel so special lady who helped me was so genuine and patient listened to what I wanted and found it for me! Many thanks for a wonderful afternoon which I will always be grateful for! Xx
I was panic stricken about finding the right outfit for my daughters wedding in December - not least because I am short and round. I needn't have feared. What a wonderful calm experience with exceptional care, service, advice etc. After trying on a number of outfits, whittled it down to two, then re-tried them both. In the end the bolder brighter outfit was chosen which I wouldn't have ever picked off the rail in a dress shop. Im wearing a vintage blonde mink jacket with it and feel like a million dollars. . Back this week for a little tweek with the seamstress. Oh, and girls, I have gone for gold sparkly shoes . Would recommend whole heartedly. Thank you Compton House.
Travelled over 2 hours to find this gem of a shop & well worth it! What an incredible range of wonderful outfits & matching accessories. Managed to find ideal mother of the bride & step mother of the bride (yes 2 weddings just 11 weeks apart) outfits. Special thanks to Wendy for her patience & expertise in making this such a special experience.
