Suddenly buying a pair of glasses has become a wonderful experience! Service at Jones & Co is excellent and I can't recommend them enough - they know exactly what is going to look good on you without trawling through lots of pairs of glasses. It was strange to be excited about picking up a pair of glasses - so many people have passed comment on them and said how good they look. I will definitely be back!

Once again I received top class service and specs I really like! With a complex prescription I need to know I'm in safe hands when selecting new glasses. Conor and his team gave a thorough eye test & made the selection process for my sunglasses a fun and pleasant experience. The coffee's good too!

My second time at Jones&Co. in less than six months! Absolutely stunning frames that you’re very unlikely to find anywhere else and second-to-none customer service :) I think it’s fair to say I’m becoming somewhat addicted to this new unique wonderful way of choosing and buying glasses! I will be back and I cannot recommend this place and amazing team of people enough! Thank you Jess for helping me pick a perfect second pair!

I don’t know why it took me so long to stumble across Jones And Co - blame the dodgy frames sitting haphazardly somewhere near my myopic peepers. Jones And Co are outstanding. The staff are lovely - professional, friendly, welcoming and (gently) enthusiastic. Their skills at choosing a selection of frames for you to try on will ensure that you leave wearing some seriously stylish spectacles. Their aftercare is excellent and they are happy to tweak until your frames are entirely comfortable. My only concern is how many pairs are enough........

Top class opticians. The team are all clearly passionate about what they do and make you feel in very safe hands. With the added bonus that they are all so lovely!

A fantastic experience from the moment I enquired right through to picking up my new glasses. They knew, from talking to me, the styles I might like and as such presented me with a selection, which were all fab! I'm really happy with my new glasses, they're different to typical high street frames and that's exactly what I wanted.

A fantastic service - very friendly and helpful staff, who try their best to find the frame that really work for you. Seems a little intimidating from the outside, but as welcoming as you could ask for. Thanks for all of the help, Gareth and team!

I’m a huge fan of Jones and Co. They care about great products, great design and great designers, which clearly comes through in their ethos. More importantly, they care about customers and finding something that’s right for you. It might not be what you first imagined but that’s why I keep going back

Wonderful staff, wonderful place, wonderful products, wonderful experience. A rare gem amongst businesses these days that have it all. It was one of the best retail shopping experiences we've ever had. It's places like Jones And Co that will always have a place on the high street, no internet business could compete. Truly awesome and highly recommended.

I can highly recommend Jones and Co. A really thorough eye test from Alex and great to meet Nick - he understood exactly what I needed (and wanted) on the frames. He was good fun as well as being very helpful. The customer care given at Jones's is second to none!

If you’re looking for unique stylish frames with absolutely fantastic service then Jones and Co is the place to be. Being smaller in stature than most with petite features, I’ve always struggled to find frames that don’t drown my face. Never again, in fact, I left with 2 pairs. Their honesty in helping me find the right frame for me was perfect, no telling you what they thought you wanted to hear or directing you to the children’s section (which I’ve often encountered). I couldn’t recommend more highly!

Step inside and Explore a Unique Experience like no other ! I travelled up from Ashbourne, looking far and wide for an optician that could offer more than the "routine" of purchasing new glasses. The building you enter to access the opticians is unique and I experienced a friendly welcome. This is the beginning of a relationship rather than a purchase. I purchase glasses infrequently, taking my time to locate frames that work with my personality and stage of life. Travelling to Jones and Co is absolutely worth the travel, and the time to be fitted with the glasses that are unique, also provide you with the time to really make the decision that is right for you. Be prepared to come and experience the reception, the experience, and the opportunity to find a unique set of frames that reflect the person you are and want to be. I will update my review when I collect my specs! in 3 weeks, but I want to thank Gareth for brining out my inner "playful" side through my choice of specs!. And to the lady (sorry didn't get your name) who kindly helped with my decision making. I looking forward to writing up my review for part 2. Thank you Amanda

I have lived with massive eye problems and had procedures carried out in this country and abroad. I thought I was receiving the best treatment, but nobody could eradicate my problems entirely. Then, I met team Jones and had my eyes measured by Conor who came up with a totally different formula. Conor and Kathryn were responsible for transforming my life. Jones and Co. are the best optician's I have ever been to. Love you to bits :)

Brilliant service, the warmest response beginning from the initial phone call from Nick, to actually having my consultation with Deepal. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Pricing options make everything extremely flexible.

After my wife bought her new Lindberg frames in June I was impressed with the courtesy, friendly reception and professional approach she received so when it was time for my eye test I had no hesitation in returning to Jones and Co. After the test was completed Nick showed me a number of frame options ( I too am a Lindberg fan) and we soon arrived at a frame/lens shape combination which we thought would fit the bill just fine. We returned today to collect my new glasses and they are just what I hoped they'd be. Again Nick was as helpful as ever and I'll certainly return here when my next appointment is due.

Over the years I have tried almost every High St optician chain never feeling they have ever managed to get either the frame or the lenses quite right. I have a fairly complex prescription & I am D/deaf so a rushed assembly-line service in a noisy shop does not work for me. By chance an advert for Jones AND Co. on Facebook caught my eye so I spontaneously made an appointment to investigate. The store is easy to find and it is a delightfully quiet and pleasant environment. Gareth the optician looked after me ensuring he understood what my needs were and in turn ensured I fully understood what my options are and that I was 100% happy with my choice never rushing me. I was quite overwhelmed when I came to collect as my specs were everything I hoped and more ! I thoroughly recommend Jones AND Co if individual care and style is important to you. I really valued Gareth's care and attention he is a thoroughly lovely kind man, I'll be back !

Amazing staff and beautiful experience. Unique and top class quality. If you are looking for something that is a bit more than just glasses, This is the perfect place. High level of customer service and professionalism. They look after You from the moment you step in and offer amazing top class products. You'll feel welcome and comfy while having (I have to say it!) a beautiful coffee and a nice chat with the staff.

It’s a very special experience going to Jones and Co. Treated as an individual who matters to them, never rushed, nothing is too much trouble... not many achieve that kind of service and they do it every time. Add in the wonderful frames they have that are so different and stylish and I’m going nowhere else. Go and see them if you want your glasses to be part of your style and not just something that helps you see.

Excellent service during my recent eye test and selection of news frames & lenses. Choosing the right eyewear is a very personal decision and Conor, Jess and all the staff offered expert guidance on both styling and technical aspects throughout the process, which I found reassuring. They made me feel a valued customer. I am delighted with my choice of eyewear and highly recommend Jones And Co.

Jones and Co are excellent opticians. I have just received my second pair of glasses from them and the experience was just as brilliant as the first time I visited. As someone who works in customer service for a major retailer, I have to say that the customer service I received at Jones and Co was exemplary. From arriving at Reception to the extensive eye test to the personal fitting service, nothing is too much trouble. I was treated as a very special person with unique needs and the range of glasses I was shown were absolutely beautiful. I have worn glasses for around ten years and the glasses from Jones and Co are the very best I have worn. I get compliments every day about my glasses as they fit me so beautifully because they were styled for me. That is Jones and Co. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I can’t recommend Jones and Co highly enough. The experience is poles apart from normal high street opticians. I’ve been wearing glasses since childhood and so have seen my fair share of opticians. The eye test is thorough and high tech (so no air being pumped into your eye) and the way in which you look at and choose your glasses is just transformative. The staff are professional and approachable- the experience was phenomenal.

Outstanding customer focused service. Everyone I have dealt with has filled me with confidence. They listen to even the vaguest ideas and come up with perfect suggestions for what frames might work (and what won't). I hate being overwhelmed with choice - this doesn't happen at Jones and Co and is exactly what makes it such a special place. I now have two pairs of completely contrasting Theo frames - both look fab! I can't recommend Jones and Co highly enough.

Went to Jones and Co after year of using this High Street Opticians and the experience could not be more different. From the eye test which was more thorough to staff actually taking the time to advise on frame styles and lenses which would be most suitable. I love my new glasses and the quality of the varifocals is a lot better. Thanks to everyone at Jones and Co

Honestly and without a doubt the best experience I’ve ever had at an opticians. As someone with a bit of a weird prescription it had really got to the point where specsavers just didn’t cut it anymore, appointments were rushed and advice on suitable frames was nonexistent. Jones & Co provide such a thorough, helpful and friendly service that for the first time in a long time I am confident in the glasses I’m wearing, both prescription wise and aesthetically. The biggest thank you to Gareth for his advice and guidance, you made my visits an absolute joy

Fantastic and personable service with a distinguishable style that is reflected in their products. I have been looking for the 'right' frames for some time and easily found a selection of several contenders at Jones & Co. Not only that but my eye test resulted in a prescription that is far superior to anything I have ever experienced from a high street chain. I would struggle to look anywhere else in the future.

Just purchased a pair of sunglasses to go alongside my two pairs of glasses. I looked forward to choosing them so much and the experience didn't disappoint me - it was so relaxing and enjoyable. Kathryn tempted me with various styles and I chose the pair that took me out of my comfort zone because as Kathryn said they made me smile. Am now waiting for some sunshine to wear them. Thank you very much Kathryn for your help.

What a find Jones and Co was for me. Looking for frames that stood out, I came across them online, with a handy video about choosing a pair of glasses. The team show you a tray of about a dozen frames they think might be what you're looking for after consultation With helpful advice it's like having a personal shopper.Thanks again to the team, can't wait to get more compliments from my new one's.

REVIEW FROM CHRISTINE BUCK My Mum was so impressed she asked me to put a review on google! “I’ve always had problems getting my new glasses correctly fitted each time I change them. It was always a job I loathed! I decided to give Jones and Co a try, and have been converted. The service I received was very professional, and always helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks goes to Jess and Catherine who looked after me and provided super service. I’m sure I will be a return customer!”

Absolutely fantastic opticians. Been with Jones and Co. for two years now and just recently got my second pair of glasses from them. Couldn't be happier with the service they provide. Always happy tp help no matter how big the issue is and I have certainly had some issues with my glasses and complex prescription! In addition, I cannot not speak highly enough of Nick and all the help and assistance he has given to me over the past two years and two pairs of complete glasses. Excellent gentlemen and couldn't do enough for you!

After visiting more than a dozen stores over the past 6 months I finally found a pair of perfect glasses at Jones and Co. Not only do they stock amazing selection of frames you wouldn't find on high street stores, the team do a great job on advising on what works the best for you. So happy with my choice of glasses!

Writing a review of Jones And Co. as "opticians" is a bit like writing a review of a bespoke tailor as a "clothes shop". Obviously the basic competence is there of carrying out an eye test, keeping decent clinical records and finding frames that will suit. What sets them apart are the classy and calm atmosphere of their premises, the paramount quality and range of their frames, and a standard of customer service that can only be understood by experiencing it. To expand on this latter point, going to Jones And Co. always makes me feel special. It is to step away from the anonymous, mundane and collectivist culture that pervades most cities and shopping centres: instead to step towards a culture that appreciates each customer as an individual.

A huge thank you to everyone at Jones & Co (Gareth Alex Jess Catherine and Aimee), what an amazing team, their customer service has no bounds, they are all extremely professional and friendly.

The Jones And Co. opticians experience is like no other. Immaculate attention to detail in the service, right from how you are greeted up to the personalised chocolates on your final appointment. The selection of frames is comprehensive, stylish and inspired; the team are informed, insightful and dedicated. Quite simply the best opticians for eyewear selection, fitting and optical knowledge.

Jones & Co is a very friendly practice. I was just browsing when Nick politely asked if he could help at all. I explained that I liked the frames but had to stick to rimless because it was hard to find frames big enough; he asked if he could try to meet the challenge, then showed me a suitable frame straight off - my daughter said "you have to get those!". I didn't want to rush in, so Nick suggested the first step was to get an up to date prescription. The optometrist was really excellent and I am very happy with the prescription, my reading and distance vision are both much clearer. I have been delighted with the performance of the lenses from the moment I looked through them. Jones and Co get this vital foundation absolutely right, and it is the basis of my confidence in them. What differentiates Jones and Co further though is the most professional dispensing optician practice I have ever encountered. I wear glasses all the time, and have a complicated relationship with them! In the past I have often felt like I was guiding the optician rather than vice versa. Nick listened carefully as I described what I liked and didn't like about my current glasses, what I wanted and didn't want. He then came up with a selection of frames that I would not have chosen myself - I liked some of them more than others, but all of them more than any of the pairs I've been wearing for the last few years. I've just picked up a second pair. I am very happy to recommend Jones and Co. Glasses are deeply personal items as well as essentially part of your wardrobe - its hard to think of a team that collaborates so closely with you to understand and meet such a complex set of personal optical, style, and personal taste requirements so well as just a company, they feel more like friends.
