Hello Everyone,

Can anyone recommend an honest,reasonably priced and reliable locksmith?
I checked on previous threads but the most recent was Feb. 2012. Wondered if anyone has a more recent recommendation.

Worrall on Great Suffolk Street are brilliant. They aren't open at weekends, so no good for emergencies, but for regular work...

Thanks very much. Just called them and they are coming out tomorrow.

Second recommendation for Worrals.

Thanks James.
Good to be able to use a long-established local firm rather than one of the big boys.
Will report back to the forum once they've completed the job.

Reporting back as promised.
Well, all I can say is that Dave from Worralls is a saint. He arrived on the dot, I showed him the lock in question, he turned the handle, gave the door a little shove and it opened! Nothing wrong with the lock, just another older latch on the door that had been painted over donkeys years ago and had suddenly decided to work again, preventing the door from opening.
He wouldn't take any payment and I didn't even have a tenner on me to give him to buy himself a drink.
Highly embarrassing!
So thank you Dave for being so gracious, and if I have a proper job for a locksmith next time, I'll make sure to call Worralls.

I've just had dealings with Worrals. Very good. Polite competent office staff and the man who came out, Mark, was affable and competent. He didn't give me any bull**** and saved me money. And they're a small local firm. Use 'em.

I rang Worralls yesterday after reading the positive recommendations here.
They sent someone this morning and fixed my locks.
Very happy with the service and would definitely endorse them.

Called Worralls today after reading the positive comments on here, they will be coming round tomorrow.

I'm much happier to be supporting a local business, so I hope they are as good as everyone says.

Ah yes - I had rotten service from them. Perhaps you had better luck, I was approx 89 out of pocket and a lock that did not fit the door frame properly. I had to get another locksmith to sort the mess out.

But don't take my word, have a look here and here.
