Lloyds Pharmacy chain

Lloyds Pharmacy is the second biggest chain of chemists/pharmacies in Britain after Boots. Unlike Boots, whose branches are often now filled with piped music – a policy supported by their head office – Lloyds branches have gone muzac-free. The staff seem friendlier there than in Boots too.
Lloyds branches are scattered across the country. I have given the address of that in Salisbury. Their website offers a store locator. www.lloydspharmacy.com/

The Secret Herb Garden

A lovely place to visit just south of Edinburgh. Have coffee and cake in a large greenhouse full of growing things, or in various other corners. It's a nursery garden for herbs, full of interesting nooks and crannies. They also host weddings and other occasions. See their website secretherbgarden.co.uk

Reeves

Reeves bakes a huge variety of breads, cakes, croissants, scones, pies etc. Some of their branches, such as those in Salisbury and Amesbury, have cafés attached. None has piped music as far as I know.

Marks and Spencer (Marble Arch branch)

This chain of shops was, for many of us of modest means, the place where we disposed of the chore of clothes shopping. Alas most of the London branches of M & S have succumbed to the curse of piped music. A member of staff at this branch was horrified to hear that things had got so bad elsewhere but assured me that five flagship branches were music-free. These branches are also better staffed, with people available specifically to help customers.
