What our customers say

A great little bookshop. The staff are excellent with a wide range of knowledge. Every corner of its floors are crammed full of reading treasures. Often they order in my special requests with no trouble but great speed.

My favourite bookshop in the UK. All the staff have a real enthusiasm for books, are always willing to advise and help, never patronise and even welcome my dog. What more could anyone ask?
