Please could someone recommend a localish company to service/tune a Longman 65 Cooper S? I’m based in Berkshire.

Huge thanks

Darty

If you’re prepared to travel (unfortunately he’s moved) Neil Slark in Bristol is the dogs .. it’ll be right when you leave or he’ll tell you why it can’t be.

Probably about the same distance away is Rod Taylor at Southam Mini & Metro Centre in Warwickshire.

I’d have to second Neil Slark too.

He’s south of Bristol so would be a nice run out from Berkshire.

You have PM

But Russell Downton in Arborfield is a great local alternative...

Russell is very good but he doesn't have a Rolling Road and so can't really (by his own admission!) offer the same service. I believe he takes his to another location with an RR when needs be.

I'd be asking whether Darty actually needs a rolling road? If it's a good service and he hasn't got-at the carburation and the like, a good servicing might be all it needs. Over to you Darty!
