Pretty looking but pretty useless
I recently bought this radio after hankering for it for a long time. It's a very pretty looking radio (I love Rose and Bee) which co-ordinates really well with other Emma Bridgewater items, and its size makes it perfect for a kitchen or bedroom. Sadly the one I received was only good for use as a decoration because it didn't work so just sat there looking pretty.
After several phone calls: customer services directed me to the manufacturers who then directed me back to customer services I returned the radio with a postage paid label and am awaiting a refund.
Really disappointed as I have wanted one of these radios for so long but have lost confidence in their reliability so am reluctant to order another.

Utterly, utterly gorgeous!
I am a fan of Emma Bridgewater and have been collecting various pieces of crockery for the past couple of years.
I bought this radio because it was in the sale and I had wanted one for my living room for ages. To say I'm impressed with the quality is an understatement, even the box was gorgeous! I just cannot through it away!
The thing is just exceptional quality all round. The sound quality is good, however I do get a short pause every now and then but I think that is more to do with the reception in this area than the actual radio.
I would recommend this without hesitation....it's lovely!

Bought this as a Birthday gift for my daughter. It is very lovely to look at and she was thrilled. However it didn't work. I phoned customer service and was told to contact the manufacturer. I was on hold to manufacturer for 20 mins then gave up. Eloise in customer service was great and arranged for a replacement. However although this works it looked like an ex display model. slightly tatty, no guarantee or instructions, Have kept it as was getting very fed up by now ,and indeed the sound quality is good, Just not a happy shopping experience and not what I would expect or indeed have previously experienced from EB.

Really pretty, but small tech & cosmetic problems
Firstly is to say the radio really is very pretty, but that's the only good thing I can say.
The screen has some slight scratches, and there is a small scuff/hole in the leatherette cover, which is a real shame.
When in DAB mode, the sound keeps cutting off, just for a split second every 2/3 minutes, but to be fair I don't know if this is something to do with placement/signal or a fault with the product, it doesn't do it in Bluetooth mode so I suspect the former.
In all honesty if it hadn't have taken nearly 3 weeks to deliver, I probably would have asked for a replacement.

Cute and compact
I was bought this for Christmas and was over the moon!
I love the pattern, very feminine. It has some great features like 2 alarm presets, which means I can have one programmed in for work days and one for the weekend. It has a lit screen which give a gentle glow in the bedroom at night which I find comforting. Because it is compact it sits neatly on my beside table with room for my essential bedtime reading matter and country living stash. There is a good range on volume which means I can have it loud enough if I'm busy getting ready in the morning and yet very low if I need some radio 4 if I wake in the night. The delivery was unbeatable and it was very very well packaged which I appreciated.
I'm glad I added this to my wish list as it has met up with all my expectations.

Really pretty, easy Bluetooth link, 4/5 for sound
Absolutely love my radio. It looks exactly how I had hoped it would and goes perfectly with my home decor.
It's easy to use and set up and small enough to be super portable.
Well made and faultless design.
Only slight negative...Doesn't sound quite as good as my other DAB radios of cheaper prices.
