Our wonderful Norfolk branch of Turmeaus Tobacconist is truly a unique experience. Unlike the standard format for our shops, the latest member to our cigar and pipe tobacco specialist family is more of a Retail, Click and Collect showroom.
This means we have streamlined the whole process to make cash payments a thing of the past. Rather than taking out your wallet to make a purchase, let one of our highly trained experts do the hard work and process your order on a tablet. Therefore, if time is short, shopping can be done in seconds!
Of course, if you prefer the more relaxed approach to life we have a purpose built sampling lounge complete with comfortable sofas, television and books where you can sit back, light up your cigar or pipe and enjoy a moment of bliss that is rarely found in today's world.
The shop itself boasts the largest range of pipe tobacco in the country as well as an unbelievable walk-in humidor, fully stocked with the finest Havana and New-World cigars, that truly has to be seen to be believed.
So come and visit us, located between Great Yarmouth and Norwich in the beautiful Norfolk countryside, we recommend spending at least an hour here to really appreciate it.
It is true, I have been with C.Gars Ltd since the very beginning. Having worked closely with Mitchell for many years, I then made the move to Norfolk to head up our Norfolk Marketing Department. However over the past few years, we have seen much expansion across all areas of the C.Gars Ltd team, with new shops popping up once or twice a year, our team it seems is ever growing. I have seen so many changes since we started, it's a little embarrassing to admit that our original website, was created by me, with the help of my 'Websites for Dummies' book - First C.Gars Site
I'm very proud of our shop, it is looking fantastic and will be a haven for cigar and pipe smokers within the Norfolk and Suffolk borders, and further afield no doubt. We have a massive range of pipe tobacco and pipes, along with a purpose built walk in humidor filled floor to ceiling with cigars from Cuba as well as New World ranges . I'm particularly proud to be showcasing the Oliva range. So why not pop along and try out our cigar sampling lounge, where you can try a cigar, enjoy an espresso and chill out for an hour. Our friendly staff will be more than happy to help and advise you. Look forward to seeing you there.
The very beginning! (1996)
I joined the Norfolk team when it was not much more than a few computers and a small amount of stock. Since then I've seen it grow into an excellent office creating some fantastic media and marketing and now, finally, a superb cigar smokers haven!
I've been expertly trained by Hunters & Frankau but I believe most of my learning has come from working in the industry at almost every level. I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful shop and sharing some of my knowledge with you... Oh and of course, sitting in the comfy lounge and joining you in a smoke!
I became a member of the Norfolk Team in January 2014. When I first joined, my priority task was making sure we are the cheapest and best value online tobacconist in the UK and I think I'm doing a good job! if not we will always gladly price match. My system monitors competitor pricing 7 days a week every hour of the day and prices are adjusted constantly so we are super competitive.
My days work also involves me in the pipe tobacco department, packing orders, blending tobaccos and smoking them which I enjoy immensely. It's my dream job with the best specialist tobacconist in the UK
I hope to see you pipe enthusiasts in our sampling lounge for a relaxing smoke, and I would be delighted to join you!
I joined the Norfolk team in August 2015, I am mainly based in the office. My main priority is to ensure customers’ needs are met and that any issues are resolved quickly and to their full satisfaction. I have learned a lot in my time about cigars and pipes and I am keen to learn more whilst being here, I have gained a great interest in the tobacco industry and look forward to see what the future brings.
I would be more than happy to serve you in the Norfolk shop and join you in the lounge for a coffee and a smoke!
I joined the Norfolk team in 2015, to help cope with our ever expanding whisky stocks. When I first joined, my task was to learn all about the whisky, understanding the different expressions and distillers. I now manage all of the whisky stock for all of our shops and our mail order side. Ensuring that everything we have listed online is available to our customers,
updating stocks hourly.
I also over see all the whisky orders, ensuring they are picked, packed and shipped via tracked services, to ensurethey reach the customer in a timely fashion. I have learned so much since I started and can't imagine a better business
to work within. We have some great team building events and I'm also involved in the tasting evenings, where I get
to sample anything new coming into the market.
I hope to meet you in the future at one of our tasting evenings, to enjoy a dram or two with you.
I joined the Norfolk team in April 2016, and my first priority was to pick and pack orders. I was taught to the highest standard to make sure the orders were packed to the best quality. Having shown a keen interest in marketing I am now the new marketing assistant. My main duties include serving customers, social media, creating and sending newsletters to make sure you are kept up to date with all our latest products.
I am always happy to serve our customers and would gladly join you in the shop for a smoke.
I joined the Norfolk team in November 2016 and I feel very lucky to be working with such a great team. My first and main role is to ensure your orders are picked and packed to the highest standards and to make sure your items reach you safely. When I am not picking and packing, I am updating our pipes and pipe tobacco. I am constantly looking for new pipes to order into stock, for our shops and website, so be sure to keep an eye at our ever growing pipe range online! We also have an amazing

This is my first visit to the new Alfie Turmeaus Cigar Shop in Norfolk and what a find, I bought an Oliva cigar and was able to enjoy it with
a complimentary coffee in their smoking lounge! Great service and the chap who served me, James was very informative and gave me
another couple of recommendations that I’ll definately be trying on my next visit.
David - 5 Stars. The new Norfolk shop is superb. The walk-in humidor is stocked with the finest Cubans and the lounge is a relaxing place to sit and smoke with a coffee. Really enjoyed my Trinidad Reyes!
