Established in 1984 the Woodbridge Kitchen Company is a wonderful independent Aladdin’s den of kitchen gadgets, utensils, pots and pans, stocking over 2,500 both everyday and aspirational kitchen and homeware products.

We relocated in 1990 to larger premises at 7 Thoroughfare to cater for our ever expanding product range and in 2001 expanded again to establish the wonderful and exciting shop we have today.

In December 2005, Spike Powell, founder of business back in the 80’s retired after 21 years, with Kirsteen Torrance and Paul Venediger purchasing the business and taking it forwards. Since then the business has been a regular winner of local and national awards having been judged Britains Best Window Display 2019 at The Houseware Innovation Awards, and also highly commended as Britains Best Independent Cookshop at the same awards.

Later in 2019 we were awarded the prestigious Excellence in Retail Display for Independents by the prestigous Excellence in Housewares Awards for 2019. The icing on the cake (pardoning the pun) is the award of Best Independent Cookshop 2020 at the next years The Houseware Innovation Awards.

2020 challenged all businesses in many ways but it afforded us the opportunity to overhaul our back-office systems which culminated in the launch of our online store in November 2020.
