January 2021 Lockdown – Here we go again

We’re so sorry that our doors are once more closed following the announcement of a further national lockdown. We hope you and your families are safe and well and coping as well as you can with the difficulties this brings.

We’ll be working behind closed doors to supply you with books. You can order by phone on 020 8693 2808. The line is open 9.30am – 4pm Monday to Saturday and 11am – 4pm on Sundays.  You can email We answer every email, but bear with us if it takes slightly longer than normal for us to reply.

You can also order from our website – we’re sorry it’s not the easiest to use –  it wasn’t designed for what it’s currently having to do. Our new website is launching soon which will have an improved search facility. Our current website does accept Book Tokens so if you’ve any burning a hole in your pocket, you can spend them there.

We’re offering click and collect, local delivery or post to anywhere in the UK. We can also supply books swiftly to Europe.

If you’d like some distraction, visit our events pages where we’re developing a programme of live-stream events, covering everything from vegan cooking to Trump’s America.

We look forward to being able to welcome you all – and your dogs! – back into the bookshop when the restrictions are eased.

What our customers say

Don’t be put off by its diminutive size – it’s like a TARDIS, and there’s a far greater choice of books on display than the laws of physics should really allow.

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?
