Review: "Ordered for my conservatory and very happy. It comes in a huge heavy box so we had to unload it and carry it to the conservatory (which is upstairs) but it wasn’t an issue for us as our son and husband helped. Putting it together is mostly adding 13 legs and a couple of screws here and there. Did take a while as it was an Allen key and a bit fiddly as some screws are harder to get in than others. Probably an hour or so. It’s very big and comfortable. I’m very happy with it for the price. The weave is quite big and the table is not that easy to move up and down but minor points. It came with one too many legs which were confusing but overall a great buy and I love it."

Review: "Nothing but praise for this garden set really is priced well. live in the Isle of Man and ordered this on Saturday and it arrived on Wednesday with free postage. Lots of people say it's hard to assemble and I would agree with most, however this I think is down to the instructions being a bit confusing, the advice given is for two people but I managed on my own which took about one and a half hours with a cup of tea in between. What I will say is only fit screws loosely until they are all located then go round and tighten its a little laborious but is crucial to making this easier to assemble."
Review: "The garden furniture is really nice and comfy. Great to entertain friends. Assembly was a bit fiddly, but after reading instructions again it is better to construct when screws are loose. Then tighten at the end when all parts are in and you're happy with it."
