About Us

about us

­For generations, people from Upminster have always supported the “local shop” “the little guy”, “the independent” There has always been a sense of duty within the community to do so.

It’s no surprise there has been successful businesses at our location for decades. From its early inception as a coal merchant’s supplying heating fuels in the local area to more recently as Martino’s barbers successfully cutting hair for over twenty years. As independent business owners, we always recognise the importance of our community and how looking after the customer is at the heart of everything we do. Supplying products or services to the neighbourhood has always taken place at this local historic site.

Station Approach Barbers

Having worked previously at Martinos for a number of years, understanding the when the opportunity arose for me to take over the business I jumped at the chance. I wanted to appeal to a wider audience, whilst retaining the traditions that have made the barbers a local icon. We also appeal now to a wider audience within the local area. A new set of values if you will.

Katie is a brilliant hairdresser. I love my hairstyle and colour. At the first look Coal House seems to be a barber shop, but I was very pleased to find out that they offer services for ladies as well. If you are looking for a fancy saloon, than this is not for you, but if you are looking for professionalism, attention to details and a great hairstyle, then I highly recommend it. Thank you Katie. Definitely will return as soon as my hair will need a refresh.
