The Owl Logo for  Shere Kitchens - beautiful kitchens handmade in Shere Guildford Surrey


Our bespoke larder, pantry, island and preparation tables are often incorporated into our kitchen designs.


We are huge fans of larder and pantry units. It’s so beautifully effortless to have all your provisions and groceries together in one organised space.

Our larders are handmade with tulip wood doors and framing at our workshop near Guildford, Surrey. The drawers are made from solid Oak, dovetail jointed for strength and beauty.

In this design we have incorporated:

  • Three hand-woven wicker basket drawers for separate storage of your root vegetables. As you take delivery of your groceries or dig up your vegetables from your garden these removable baskets are a helpful design feature whilst providing a separate and dark storage area to keep produce fresh

  • Two columns of wine racks

  • Four handy removable boxes for staples like flour, sugar, coffee and tea; with antique brass card-frame finger pulls

  • Beautiful oak spice, oil and jar racks fitted to the inside of the doors

  • As well as a fixed top shelf there are two adjustable shelves, edged with a deep lip of solid oak to maintain the strength of the shelves for years to come

A range of colours are available.


An island can be so helpful in a kitchen in terms of offering a partition between areas – family play and entertaining space and cooking areas. Islands also offer a focal point where family and friends can gather to chat and help prepare and enjoy food.

Our islands can be made with drawers, closed cabinets, open shelving, and with an overhung countertop to provide a breakfast bar. We offer a complete range of bespoke wood work surfaces for our island units as well as stone and Silestone.

Prep tables are a very fitting addition to a Shaker Style kitchen – all about simplicity and utility. Ours can be made to any width and length you like with an oak, marble or granite top to keep it practical and honest. Optional drawers and a slatted base offer additional storage.

“Coveted by of all our friends and family - very high quality of workmanship, on time and to the agreed price. Great service from start to finish.”
