Peter , Lichfield - 09 Dec 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Friendly, helpful, welcoming and competitive. I bought a couple of things that were very reasonably priced. What more could you want in a model shop, or any shop for that matter? I'd not been here before, but will definitely return next time I'm in Stoke.

Martin , Stoke-On-Trent - 22 Aug 2017 - Five Stars
Definitely the friendliest shop I have ever been in. An excellent range of model railways and all of the bits and bobs that accompany modelling! Very good prices and a good range of previously owned stock.

Travelling to Stoke, I found this lovely shop through UKMODELSHOPS. Although they have just recently moved and not quite finished, I was delighted to find a good range of new and second hand items at reasonable prices. Most pleasant staff, nice website, good on-road parking - well worth a visit.

Brian , Stoke-On-Trent - 10 Mar 2016 - Five Stars
The Hobby Goblin is a shop where you can get a friendly welcome as soon as you walk through the door. Expert advice and everything for modelling. Model railway locomotives tested, repaired,and decoders fitted. On line sales and I would highly recommend paying The Hobby Goblin a visit you will not be disappointed

Silas , Edinburgh - 28 Nov 2015 - Four & a half Stars
Very nice model shop. Friendly welcome by helpful owner. Large range of new and second hand OO gauge Good selection of new N gauge, with a limited selection of second hand N gauge (But then who has much at the moment?!)

John , Stoke On Trent - 29 Oct 2015 - Four & a half Stars
Great shop, new location is much better than the old one. Always the chance off a bargain, i've had quite a few when i've been. Really nice and helpful owner.

Jon , Manchester - 06 Aug 2015 - Four Stars
Didn't get a chance to visit the old shop but the new one is great (Even a chance to buy a new light fitting if you need one) plenty of new rolling stock but also scenery items, modelling items, some secondhand stock and lots of good advice. I'll be planning to go back there when I expect it will be even better as they will have really settled into the new location. Parking was easy on the surrounding streets.
