The Bear Shop Cardiff

On the 1st July 2010, Havana House took over at The Bear Shop in Cardiff.

The Bear Shop in Cardiff was founded in 1870 by William Arthur Lewis. Around 1900, W. A. Lewis purchased a big bear, known as Bruno, and he has resided at the store ever since – it is reputed that he is 200 years old!

In 1928, following Lewis’ death, the shop was inherited by his daughter and her husband, Harold Darbey. The shop continued to be run by the Darbey family until 2000, when it was bought by A.E.Lloyd & Sons Ltd and subsequently acquired by Paul Gilmour of Shave & Coster, Reading in 2007.

Located in the Wyndham Arcade, this business has served the smokers of Cardiff and beyond for over 140 years! Stocking one of the biggest ranges of pipe and rolling tobaccos in the UK instore, The Bear Shop allows customers to see and smell the incredible products before they buy them. The largest tobacconist in Wales, the shop also boasts an impressive selection of cigars from all over the world in the spacious cigar room, including Cuban Limited Editions, Regional Editions and other aged cigars.

Our array of products also include an elite range of Gentleman’s gifts such as shaving sets and shaving products, hip flasks, lighters, tankers and old-fashioned games to name a few.

Havana House prides itself on service and knowledge, and this is what we have brought to The Bear Shop. Being the only tobacconist in South Wales, we look forward to its continued success.
