Coach House Pianos

This store began its life 250 years ago as a Coach House, before being converted to a family-run business, specialising in the sale of pianos. The company ran for many years with the space for only 23 pianos in-store but had to increase its capacity due to great demand, and so the store was moved to a larger site. Nowadays, hundreds of pianos are on display, in various models, makes and styles, and these are showcased in Regency-style showrooms, with Minstrels Gallery, to create a completely unique experience for piano-lovers. With such prestigious makes on offer as that of Steinway and Yamaha, this shop has much to offer in the way of quality, and guarantees satisfaction. Coupled with the goal to sell the highest quality products, the company also aim to offer the most affordable prices to customers. Not only this, but Coach House Pianos strive to provide a personal service, offering expert advice from top Steinway piano tuners and technicians during the purchasing process, and afterwards.
