The Tebby garage is a hidden gem. It’s a family of helpful people, not all related!

For good friendly advice with reliable results, they are second to none.

The Clifton Cellars has had a long association with S F Tebby & Son, going back at least ten years. They are always very helpful and courteous and if the car needs a repair they will tell you what needs doing and – importantly – what doesn’t! I know I can trust them completely and that their charges will be fair and honest. It’s nice to receive good, old-fashioned service where the customer is highly valued and not just seen as a nuisance!!

Alan Wright, The Clifton Cellars

You have been looking after my cars for over six years, as well as finding my first Alfa for me a few years ago. I value the combination of personal service and professional expertise that I have always experienced from Tebby’s. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.

David Harrowes

I know nothing about cars and whenever I have a problem with my Volkswagen Polo I call on S F Tebby & Son to sort it out, which they invariably do. “Leave it with us” and my worries are dealt with that day. I am grateful to them for their work and their reassurance and reliability.

Brenda Lalonde

I have bought two cars from Tebby’s garage which have both been of top quality and had our family cars serviced & MOT’d by the Tebby’s team for the last 11 years. I have always been really pleased by their friendly professional service and am always pleased to recommend them to friends & colleagues.

Jo Darlington

Having been a customer of S F Tebby & Son for over ten years now, both from vehicle purchase and servicing perspective, I can highly recommend their level of expertise, integrity and customer service. No problem is too small to sort out and Roger and his team provide the reassurance, straightforward advice and prompt service you need as a customer. Very best of success for the future.

Stephen Fischer

Survival depends on your choice of doctor and garage, car maintenance depends on experience and absolute attention to detail.  Roger Tebby (owner) and Stan (foreman) together have over 60 years of experience and “young James” (workshop leader) started as an apprentice over 12 years ago, so I know I am in good hands. But it takes more than that to make a great garage; you also need friendliness, working to your time-table and cheapness. Roger owns the garage so he does not have shareholders or head office overheads to support and can minimise costs which is important, particularly if you have a high quality car. Like you I just want it to work, most of us can’t afford to buy new cars and haven’t a clue as to whether a tempting used Saab 95 Aero is a bargain or a death-trap.  Roger buys my cars for me, I just tell him what I want, what I can afford, he finds and cleans it up and gets a new MOT certificate so I know it’s good for a year.  He then gives me a ring, I hand him my old keys, drive off, and Roger sells my old car and deals with the paperwork including arranging any loan. Twenty years of happy, safe motoring thanks to Roger who should be a national treasure.

Richard Waterman

It’s rare to deal with a family run business in the motor trade. It’s good to know that you will be talking to only one of a few people, who know you personally and have remembered your requirements. Very polite and friendly service.

Maria Quinn

I have been using Luke and his colleagues at S F Tebby & Son for some time simply because they offer such a friendly, prompt and reliable service which you know will have the problem sorted without any fuss. I would highly recommend their efficiency and quality of work to anyone.

Roy Clark, Shareworks (Tax) Ltd

We have received outstanding service from S F Tebby & Son for many years. This has been noticeable not simply in having our car serviced regularly with the firm but also on unexpected occasions when our car has malfunctioned. They have always been (a) very efficient and (b) very courteous.

Charles and Emily Martin

I was recommended Tebby’s garage by a friend of mine over eight years ago and have been using them ever since. I have found them to be reliable, honest and have a very high standard of workmanship. For several years now, I have been running a Japanese import. Many garages will not touch a car if there isn’t a Haynes manual available for it, but these guys are real mechanics and know what they’re doing. I would recommend them to anyone.


S F Tebby & Son have serviced my car for the past fifteen years. I have nothing but praise for their efficiency, trustworthiness, friendliness and willingness to put themselves out in an emergency. I highly recommend them.

Penny Wells

In an age increasingly dominated by big corporates and impersonal service, I’m always happy to bring my car to S F Tebby & Son where I rely on excellent workmanship and an eagerness to provide 100% satisfactions. I’ve recommended this family business to others.

Jonathan Charlesworth

S F Tebby & Son have been keeping us on the road since 1977, through three generations of friendly family service. They have consistently been helpful and reliable, always working to high standards, and always willing to go that extra mile to help out when unexpected problems arise. In our opinion, they are quite simply the best in Bristol.

Dr Tim Moss

I started taking my 13 year old Honda Civic CRX sports car to Tebby’s four years ago. The team there are courteous, friendly and conscientious. They always clearly explain any necessary repairs and maintenance. They always do what they can to keep costs to a minimum, without compromising the quality of their work. I trust their knowledge, honesty and workmanship implicitly.

Malcolm Newton

Fantastic level of service. Friendly, polite and helpful staff.

Holly Bazin

I have been dealing with S F Tebby & Son for a few years now for my MOTs and car servicing, they are always very professional and efficient. I am always confident that I am going to get what I asked for with no hidden extras! I have also bought and sold cars though them and I have never been disappointed with the level of service they have provided me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Alan Poole

A very personal and reliable service where nothing is too much trouble!

Nigel Greenhalgh

I have had an MOT and service at S F Tebby & Son for the past 15 years and always found the garage to be professional and very caring. Roger, Stan, even James the mechanic have been very helpful and taken the stress out of any situation. Their knowledge is second to none they really do treat you as one of the family.

Grant Bayliss

I have entrusted the care and purchase of cars from Tebby’s for many years now and they have offered platinum standard service and friendliness to me at all times. I have always trusted them to do their best for me and they have never been found wanting. I know I can always turn to them for help with my car and I recommend them to everyone wholeheartedly.

Angela Markham

I first came to Bristol 12 years ago and looked around for a small garage to service my 2 cars, I subsequently found S F Tebby & Son. In this time my fleet has grown to 14 cars. Some of these have been new cars which Roger has sourced for me, a number have been used cars which he has also supplied. The quality of the used cars has always been spot on. During this time there has never been a dispute or disagreement in relation to the work carried out and there have been considerable savings on the car purchases. Obviously I am very pleased with the service and I am confident that no work is carried out on the vehicles unless it is absolutely necessary. Any issues are always discussed with me and recommendations made.  I have peace of mind when it comes to managing my small fleet.”
