"Having purchased bar stools from drinkstuff some 12 years ago they where starting to look a bit worn, so decided to replace them. After looking around and not finding anything we liked we saw drinkstuff still online so sent for some similar to ours and love them. Excellent."
Lorna - England, 9th February
"Good value stools. Easy to assemble, very good looking. Very lightweight, which is good to move them around, but don't know how long they'll last. One of the stands was scratched quite badly, but couldn't be bothered to return them for the price. Don't notice it now. Very pleased with them though."
Roger B - Ipswich, 20th May '10
Drinkstuff says: Many thanks for your review Roger. For future reference, you are more than welcome to contact us regarding any products that arrive to you with damage.
"Great item. Very sturdy and easy to put together. Highly recommended."
Steven Fidgeon - Upminster, 7th March '09
"I ordered 3 pod kitchen stools (2 x yellow & 1 matt black) on Tuesday and received delivery on Thursday. Excellent service and they look fab and expensive. Thank you Drinkstuff, I would definitely visit your site again."
Sandra Salmon - Lymm, 13th February '09
"Had bought 2 and liked them so bought one more. Unfortunately a week after purchase my 6 year old tried to get from one to another without touching the ground and one fell over causing a split in the seat and damaging the thread making it unusable. So whilst I like the look and comfort of the stools very much, I now have a slight concern over how robust they are (should they be able to withstand being knocked over once without being broken?). That said, I will probably order another to replace it."
Steve Neesam - Eastbourne, 13th February '09
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Steve. It is difficult to comment on the robustness of the stools in a fall; it would depend on the circumstances. The base on the stools is large enough to reduce the likelihood of them being knocked over. We have sold thousands of these over the years with few complaints but we are sorry that this has happened.
"I ordered 1 of the gas stools for myself in the kitchen. Had to order another for my partner as he kept pinching mine. I entertained a few times over the crimbo break and everybody now wants one... excellent buy excellent quality."
Laura Watkins - Cheddar, Somerset, 4th January '09
"Excellent, exactly what we were looking for your our kitchen. Easy to essemble and easy to use."
Gordon - Perth, 3rd December '08

Ina Ross - Northampton, 26th August '08
"BRILLIANT BRIGHT RED, STURDY AND COOL,"
MARTINE - PORTSMOUTH, 17th June '08
"Very satisfied with my order. Arrived the day after I placed the order and was better than expected. Need to buy one more to make a pair - any specials on buying a second??
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your order and review Craig, we're glad you like the Pod Bar Stool so much. They are already competetively priced and we do offer a buy 5, get 1 free deal, so unfortunately we cannot discount a second order for just one stool."
Craig Urquhart - Kent, England, 22nd April '08
"Excellent, modern, stylish product which looks great in my kitchen. Exactly what I wanted.
Delivered in 2 days, and took about 1 minute to build, simply slotted together"
Wayne - Cumbria, 16th April '08

Valrie Bright - Weymouth, 26th December '07
"Great product, people love them in my club"
Jon Brickley - Llandrindod wells, 12th December '07
"We recently ordered 15 Matt Blue Bar Stools for an exhibition. We were very dissapointed to see that they are not matt blue as displayed on the thumbnail picture on your site, but more a purple.
This actually caused us alot of problems, as our client was less than impressed with this!
What are your thoughts?
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Doug. Unfortunately, it is difficult to represent colours accurately on screen as this is also dependent on your screen's settings. We do however agree that in some lights the colour appears to be purple. We have adjusted our description accordingly. Our customer services team have been in contact."
Doug Banks - SDD Exhibitions, 6th December '07
"Good product and excellent delivery very promt thank you"
Sherrill Maisel - London, 4th December '07

Anna Nelson - Berkhamsted, Herts, 1st June '07
"We bought 4 Gas pump bar stools from drinkstuff. The product came extremely quickly and was exactly how it was described on the web site. We are very satisfied customers and will definately be ordering from drinkstuff.com in the future when the need arises. XX"
Daniela Briggs - Cheshire, 10th April '07
"Very nice looking gas lift stool, would have prefered black but the white one looks good to. And for the price I looked around a few websites but this was the cheapest. Very happy with it"
Mr Lewis - London, 30th March '07
"Easy to assemble no spanners or screwdrivers needed.
For comfort Im not sure about the rise in the front as it catches leg when you sit down.
Good quality for the price paid £40"
Keith Hallam - Leicester, 17th March '07
"I am really impressed with the product - the stool was easy to put together and is exactly what I had imagine after seeing it on the internet. I was also very impressed with the quick delivery service."
Jayne Faulkner - London, 16th March '07
"Lovely glossy, glittery and pink! What more could a girl ask for!
Excellent value and quick delivery"
J Sharpe - Hull, 5th March '07
"I saw this web site mentioned in a 'Homes' magazine.
I had been looking for stools just like this. Next sell an identical looking stool for £125!
I ordered on a Friday about lunchtime. They were delivered at 9AM on the Monday. They really are EASY to put together - no tools needed at all. Definitely recommend the site and the product."
Lisa Symes - Southampton, 20th February '07

PAUL CLARK - INVERGORDON, 10th February '07
"Ordered stools and the one in stock was dispatched immediately living in Highlands of Scotland it normally takes ages for things to be delivered, but I received my order within a few days - really easy to set up, love them, great customer service and I will definitely be buying from this company again!"
Bonnie Wallace - Highlands of Scotland, 30th January '07
"Fantastic stools at a great price and easy to assemble (my wife had unpacked them and made them up by the time I got home from work). Even the joiner who was fitting the doors in our house couldn't believe the value. He pays £60 a pop for similar stools and he gets them at trade price!"
Iain Pollock - Larkhall, 10th January '07
"We bought four Gas Lift Pod stools – great for any kitchen. We saw the stools in Argos but they didn't do black. However, DrinkStuff did (plus many other colours) and they were the same price. Delivery was very good although we did have to wait a week or so as they were out of stock (which shows how popular they are I suppose). I now spend more time sitting in the kitchen than I do in the lounge. For non-padded bar stools they are extremely comfortable."
Dean Cook - Shoreham-by-Sea, 19th December '06
"These look fabulous in our kitchen. We've been looking for great kitchen stools at a good price for ages and then we found these. They're sooo easy to assemble, a great price, fast delivery, very comfortable and very stylish. Cheers!"
Fran - Bradford, 18th December '06
"I like high end items that look more than they cost. These chairs are it, they're cool, but really comfortable and versatile. every one who has sat in them has commented how good they. when your playing poker & someones losing the last thing you want is it compounded by them having a dented bum as well as a wallet!!"
Paul - Cornwall, 19th November '06
"These stools are great! the young people at the youth club love them.They look brilliant and work well in our coffee bar and media rooms.A designer product at chainstore price,I may purchase some more."
paul southgate - whitstable youth and community ce, 3rd November '06
"I am very pleased with our stools. They are comfortable, good to look at, stable and easy to assemble. My 14-year-old grandson put one together in two minutes flat!
Mrs Alma Robeson - Tewkesbury Gloucestershire, 21st October '06
"After placing an order for the stools on sunday evening late on, they arrived early tuesday morning. Most impressed with the quick and efficient service. The stools are fab, everyone is commenting on them and can't believe the price we paid; seen a similar stool in a department store that was almost ten times more expensive. Definitely recommend this site to others and will buy from here again."
pauline mcfarlane - montrose, 19th October '06
"I bought 2 Gas Lift pod stools for my kitchen on the sunday eve and they arrived on Tues morn!! was really chuffed, they were super easy to assemble and look absolutely fantastic so much so i have just placed an order for 2 more! would recommend to anyone interested."
Natasha Menear - Plymouth, 7th October '06
"Great Product at a great price. We bought three of these stools for our new breakfast bar. Our children love them and want to use them all the time."
George Roberts - Aberdeen, 26th September '06
"The Gas lift pod chairs arrived a day late but postage was refunded promptly. The chairs are great and were very easy to assemble - really pleased!
drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Louisa and we apologise again that delivery was a day late. There was a problem at the main ParcelForce depot which caused the delay which is a rare occurrence, 98% of parcels are delivered on time."
Louisa Harrison - Wilmslow, Cheshire, 15th September '06
"Lovely, service was good and so are the stools!"
Catherine Parker - Bristol, 6th September '06
"Just received my bar stools. Extremely quick delivery. Stools very easy to assemble and look great. Kids think they're at bit of a play thing though. Up down, up down, up down. Hope they're sturdy enough to cope with it. Sure they will be."
Gail - Christchurch, 21st August '06
"Service has been fantastic, the product is good. I did have a little trouble removing the old base in order to fit the new replacement ones.
drinkstuff says: Thanks for the review Chris and sorry you had difficulty removing the old bases to fit the replacement ones. The best method to remove them is to knock them off using a soft instrument, ideally a rubber mallet, and the gas-leg can then be placed into the new bases.
Chris Land - Kent, 14th August '06
"Great stools, easy to assemble, look fantastic. Little kids bottoms tend to slide around too much though. Great service too!"
Neil Hoskins - West Sussex, 10th July '06
"The bar stool looks superb and works brilliantly, you just cant go wrong. Delivered in 2 days as well...excellent !"
Paul Rands - Hull, 26th June '06
"Excellent customer service - the order was delivered quickly, the goods assembled without problem, and the follow up to find out if I was happy was second to none. You restore my faith in on line ordering - thank you."

Mrs Lsia Toy - Wednesbury, 19th June '06
"Brilliant products, fantastic prices, great range, easy website, marvellous choice, lightening-fast delivery ..... I'm one happy customer"
joanne hardy-theobald - N E Lincs, 15th June '06
"We ordered these stools to go with out new breakfast bar. They are absolutely fantastic and look really modern and very classy but also a little funky.
we were very pleased with the price; the best we found on the internet
kay scott - north east, 14th June '06
"These designer stools are fantastic! Superb quality and look perfect in my modern new apartment. I cannot believe the price - they look and feel like they cost ten times as much. Delivery was lightning fast too. Don't waste time looking on other sites - buy these now before you miss the opportunity."
Adrian - Docklands, 1st June '06
"Excellent bar stools that look and feel a lot more expensive than they cost. Easy to assemble, comfortable and sturdy."
Mrs Thompson - Liverpool, 30th May '06
"I ordered 5 of these (and got 1 free) and they are very competively priced. They are very easy to assemble and look great in our new kitchen. My kids love them! Only drawback with them is that you have to weight at least 10 stones to be able to lower them -they might get easier with more use.
drinkstuff says: Thanks for your comments Jitesh, glad you like the stools. The gas-lift mechanism will indeed ease-up after more use, its also best not to place them near heat so the leg does not 'expand', making the height adjustability more difficult to use."
Jitesh Mistry - Bristol, 21st May '06
"Very pleased with the chairs, exactly what I wanted and a fraction of the cost of similar ones in John Lewis. Delivered promptly and exactly when scheduled. Thanks."
Heather Ruffley - Milton Keynes, 20th May '06
"I bought the stools for a breakfst bar - no complaints with speedy service from drinkstuff.com - and the stools look very smart in situ. I had not realised that you cannot shuffle forward to get close to the surface to eat once sat. You can get on backfacing and swivel if legs are not in the way. Just think about the setting you are going to use the stools in!"
Jan - Cheshire, 29th April '06
"Nice looking chairs. Shinier base than I'd appreciated from the pic's, but we're definitely pleased with them, esp at the price!"
Michael - London, 24th April '06
John Greenbeck - Newcastle, 21st April '06
"I am chuffed to bits with the stools and i cant believe they were so reasonably priced. They were delivered in a couple of days. Excellent service"
Irene Falconer - Aberdeen, 21st April '06
"Lovely chairs, excellent price - excellent service.
Jeannie Long - Cranleigh, 14th April '06
"A bargain at £40!!"
mark - london, 13th April '06
"Very fast delivery. Excellent stools thanks. We're chuffed to bits!!"
Dean Howells - South Wales, 4th April '06
"Table was well packaged and delivery and service has been excellent.
The only thing that was not planned was that the table did not match the stools I already had. The stool colour was 'metallic red'. The 'gloss red' table did not go, however, after service and return policy has been easy to deal with and been most helpful.
drinkstuff says: We must stress Tom did not buy his stools from us so the likelyhood of the colours matching exactly was slim. If he had purchased the red table and stools from us then the shading of the red colour would match. Tom can obtain a refund by returning the table to us in good condition."
Tom Macrae - Linlithgow, 27th March '06
"Bought 3 gas lift bar stools and received them within 2 days, first class service!"
Joanne Mckenna - Co Fermanagh, N.Ireland, 21st March '06
"Easy to assemble, not as heavy as I expected which is great for transporting (using it to rest my legs at exhibitions!). Also this was the only place I could order one, everywhere else sold in pairs."
Katrina Houghton - Plymouth, 13th March '06
"Stools ordered on Thursday and delivered on Monday. All three assembled within 15 minutes, extremely easy. Look great, height adjustment simple to use (kids love to play on them!)."
Linda Dean - Newcastle upon Tyne, 25th February '06

Kevin Harwood - Sindlesham Berkshire, 13th February '06
"Look great in my kitchen. Easy ordering, quick delivery and simple assembly.
Thank you Drinkstuff for great product."
Mrs J - Warrington, 12th February '06
"Fantastic value for money, and super fast delivery :O)"
kelly - West Yorkshire, 29th January '06
"These stools are solid, easy to assemble, extremely comfortable and look amazing. I have not seen stools of this quality at this price elsewhere. A great purchase."
GW - London, 29th January '06
"Just recieved my 2 gas lift pod chairs, The chairs are excellent and the price is unbeatable, i know i have searched, Delivery was fast under 2 days, unfortunately one of the chair seats was damaged during delivery but one short e-mail later and a replacement was on its way, which was also within 2 days. Excellent service i will be back!"
Andrew Brown - York, 29th January '06
"fantastic service. really fast delivery, and no problem with a damaged item which was replaced -and delivered next day!-would def use again."
helen theophanatos - guildford, 29th January '06
"I purchased four of these bar stools and found them to be excellent. They are comfortable and adjust height to your desire and requirement. They represent excellent value for money. Thank you."
Chris Land - Maidstone Kent, 29th January '06
"I bought two of these stools, they went together very easily; they look stylish and they're comfortable. Plus the price was excellent too!"
Steve Bowns - Barnsley, 29th January '06
"The table was easy to set-up but the base was slightly warped. This meant that it wasn't the most secure and wobbled about a bit. Seeing as I wanted to put my iMac on it this didn't bode well. However, I got a little piece of paper and that soon did the trick!
drinkstuff says: We apologise to Ajay that he received a faulty table-base, we would be more than happy to send a replacement part to him. If you ever unfortunately receive items with faults or damages then please call our customer service team on 08707 602 182."
Ajay - Manchester, 28th January '06
"The chair itself was very easy to build and it's very sturdy too!"
Ajay - Manchester, 28th January '06
"I am very pleased with the stools. initially bought one stool however the top was chipped on delivery. Replacement came within 2days as promised. Efficient service and have recommended a friend who has just placed her order. I did compare the prices with the high street and indeed these stools are a BARGAIN.will use Drinkstuff again without doubt.
drinkstuff says: We apologise to Mel that one bar stool was damaged, we can only assume this occured due to unusual rough handling by ParcelForce. We have plenty of spare parts available so we were more than happy to replace the seat top. If you ever have any faults or damages with items please call our customer services team on 08707 602 182."
Mel - Peterborough, 25th January '06
"The products are amazing value. They are easy to put together and look very stylish and definitely look worth far more than I paid for them! the only downside was that one of the seats came damaged and did take a longer time than I expected to be relaced. So, initial service great but follow up service not so great. Overall I am very satisfyed and will certainly use the site again.
drinkstuff says: We do apologise to Cheryl that one of the stool tops was damaged. We sent a replacement asap however the delay was caused by ParcelForce who sent it to the wrong depot."
Cheryl Hall - Somerset, 23rd January '06
"excellent stools, gorgeous in red. they look designer, but at bargain basement prices. easy to assemble, sturdy and comfortable."
donna worrall - lancashire, 22nd January '06
"Well this has to be the best deal going, I searched for so long looking for one of these, certain high street stores sell these for as much as £200+ and I can comfirm that there seems to be no difference. I ordered a silver table and just a note, as I couldn't see it written, its a matt finish NOT gloss. Which personally I now think, I prefer to some gloss ones I have seen! Top product at an incredible price. THANKS!!! DRINKSTUFF.COM
drinkstuff says: Matt is indeed correct, the Black and Silver Pod stools and tables have a matt finish, all other colours are gloss. "
Matt - Swindon, 19th January '06
"Speedy delivery. Great product. Very sturdy. Will use drink stuff again.
LorettaFerritto - Cobham, Surrey, 14th January '06
"I bought these on the basis of the other reviews I read and have not been dissappointed. Quality is excellent given the price and we have seen almost identical ones for 3 or four times as much. Great for a bit of fun in the kitchen, we had some friends stay a few days after we got them and their kids were happy to play on them for most of the weekend which is great for a bit of peace and quiet in the front room!"
David - Reading, 8th January '06
"I have been ordering a lot of drink stuff lately. I have two venuies, one a public house and another wine bar and restaurant. I have ordered furniture, cocktail accessories, glasses etc etc. Excellant value for money. Delivery within two days. The web site is fantastic. Something different!!Thank you Drink Stuff!"
Mrs Kingston - The Albert, Yeadon, Leeds, 30th December '05

Joanna - Nottingham, 30th December '05
"Very good chair but has a crack on the plastic about 2' long.very good delivery...
drinkstuff says: We most apologise the chair had a crack on the seat, this must have been due to rough-handling by ParcelForce. We are more than happy to send Jonathan a new seat top."
Jonathan King - W Yorks, 19th December '05

Paul Mcelhatton - Leeds, 18th December '05
"We have just spent £60k on an extension and these were the best buy!!!
They look fantastic and the gas lift works brilliantly. I have 4 and I will be ordering another 2 as they hardly take up any space.
My 2 year old loves eating at the bar and swiveling around to watch tv - his mother doesn't!
