About The Malt House Emporium

We've come a long way

We opened our doors in November 2014 with just a handful of dealers, now, almost 6 years on, we have a very full and very diverse Emporium.

With over 70 experienced traders bringing you stock from various eras, styles and countries you are sure to enjoy a lovely shopping experience.

The Malt House Emporium Ltd was established in 2014. We opened our doors on the 19th November 2014 in an unused and empty Victorian building with just a handful of dealers and the unshakeable determination that we would be bucking the trend of dreary and tired Antique Centres & Emporiums, to create something new, exciting and innovative.

Within 3 months of opening we had grown to over 45 dealers and expanded into the 1st floor. We’d had our first visit from TV’s Paul Laidlaw and the Antique Road Trip crew and were serving coffee & cake in our temporary tea room. We were soon seen as market leaders and have since seen growth every year and continued to appeal to a wider audience.

Late 2017 we relocated to a new venue in Ashchurch, Tewksbury, with over 70 traders into a modern building purposely fitted out for our purposes. We did not wish to leave Stroud, and had only intended to expand to Tewkesbury, but after sadly being given notice on our thriving building we completed a full relocation. We intend to extend back to Stroud as soon as a suitable site is found. We have many plans for the future of the Malt House Emporium Ltd.

The Ferns Bistro

We now have a fantastic Bistro on site. With feedback from our customers requesting a way to sample the teas and coffees we sell they will be able to experience the range in our new tea room. We have taken this to a new level though and creating a homage to the by gone era of the Art Deco period, when tea was the height of fashion. With new decor and accompanying Afternoon tea and light bites you can enjoy a break to consider a purchase, or just take a few moments.

Since 2014 we have managed to find amazing staff, who are friendly, approachable and work tirelessly in bringing you excellent customer service.

We hope you enjoy visiting The Malt House Emporium.
