The Herbal Barge Apothecary is there for  people can drop in,   access herbal medicines without needing to book a one to one consultation.It is a retail outlet of various over the counter-herbal preparations, and raw ingredients; somewhere to pick up repeat prescriptions, to chat and seek advice. Free 15 minute consultations are often available and the drop in apothecary may be your first port of call if you are wondering if herbal medicine has something to offer you.

We tend to be open for two days a month, but sometimes more often during summer months, bank  holiday and Floating Market periods. For details see the calendar link below.

Occasionally the Herbal Barge Apothecary transforms a little to host our famous pop up Botanical Cocktail and Herbal Snuff Bar.


The Herbal Barge Apothecary sell a range of over the counter products for self care and well being. Many of these products are made directly by and for the Herbal Barge Co, and others are bought in from trusted suppliers. We also stock raw ingredients to support you in making your own medicines. Please ask if there is something you would like us to stock. We will shortly be making some products ...
