Anyone on the forum able to recommend a key cutting service in SE1 please. It is a Yale key.
Many Thanks

There's a kiosk outside Tesco on Old Kent Road.

I've used the shoemender on Walworth Rd (not quite SE1 / opposite M&S) a few times and he's been very quick and cheap.

I have found that shops that cut keys as a sideline usually do not do the best of jobs and are relatively expensive.
Timpsons large kiosk by the entrance to Tesco's on the Old Kent Road are brilliant. Over the last two months they have cut two complete sets of house keys for me (20) and today made two electronic key fobs for 20 whilst I waited. Each time they have told me to return if there were any problems, there has been no need to return. They checked my car key and told me they would chip and program a new one for 60, that's the next job they get from me. And all done whilst you wait and with a smile too.
Do try them.

They are not a heel bar that doubles up as a key cutter: they are proper locksmiths and really know what they are doing.

Timpsons at Tesco OKR entrance only cut keys and do not repair shoes.
One would assume from Jules62 post he has probably had the same experience as me that the two services, heel bar and key cutting, do not usually mix well and that is why I thoroughly recommend Timpsons , they only cut keys.

Of course there is the added advantage that one can drop the keys off to be made whilst you do your shopping and return to pick up the keys on your way out.

Just been along to Worrall's.
The service was friendly, the key was cut in seconds, and the price was very reasonable at 4.20 for a Yale key.

Thank you James for your recommendation, and Jules62 too.
