About Us


Hello, my name is Martin Hicks. I am the owner of The Alfresco Shop in Lingfield, Surrey.

I have a passion for cooking outdoors on a barbecue or in my pizza oven, with good quality ingredients and a bottle of wine to share with friends and family. There’s nothing quite like the glow of charcoal and the sizzle of sausages, a pizza cooking in a wood-fired oven or a paella bubbling with the fragrance of saffron and rice, all while birds sing in the trees. Eating al fresco reminds us of holidays, of making a meal into an occasion, of being under an open sky, of sunshine or candles under the stars. Everything tastes so much better when we eat outside.


What we do 

The Alfresco Shop specialises in outdoor cooking equipment for home entertainment, from top of the range barbecues and pizza ovens for fully fitted outdoor kitchens to portable barbecues  and paella burners suitable for camping trips. 

We are one of the largest authorised stockists of WEBER barbecues in the Southeast. In my opinion, WEBER, makes the best quality barbecues in the world. After all, the company is American and the USA is a country where barbecuing has long been a way of life. We also sell paella pans and burners, pizza ovens, Kadai Fire Bowls, chimeneas, logs and charcoal from sustainably managed English forests (rather than importing cheap but destructive rainforest charcoal from Asia) plus a whole range of gift ideas and accessories.


To grill on your barbecue, we stock exotic meats such as kangaroo and ostrich as well as local, free-range, organic meats, flavoured oils, sauces and seasonings to help you create  a memorable outdoor dinning experience.
