Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value John Lewis have a good selection of light bulbs and we were pleased to find they do traditional style bulbs, as we prefer them. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hologen Candle bulbs I use these Candle bulbs in the bedside table lamps and they give a very clear light and are so easy to fit. Very happy with my purchase. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by really useful product As always, reliable and efficient bulbs. Have bought these for years! 27 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good white light Great light at a good price. Not a dull yellow light, this light is great for reading. 25 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light bulbs purchased as an alternative to those recommended. Well, I've never been asked to review a light bulb before so not sure what to say other than it does the job it's expected to! What I would say, but not sure whether this is appropriate for this review, is that I couldn't find exactly what had been recommended and your very helpful customer service chap, by asking the right questions, ordered me an alternative which was absolutely spot on. Having trawled around all over town with no help whatsoever, I was extremely impressed with such service! I know I've reviewed the service rather than the light bulb but an excellent beginning to your new store in Exeter! 26 October 2012
