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.

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.
