We're now running a regular Bookshop Book Club

Join us to discuss the chosen books and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the Bookshop café.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 22 May, 12.30pm - 1.30pm, when we will be discussing We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson.  

Tickets for all events are non-refundable except in the case of a sellout and ticket resale.

We stock an extensive range of carefully chosen new adult and children's books.

Our experienced staff are always available to offer advice, and help you to find the very best books.

If we don't have what you're looking for in stock, we can order many books for collection the following day.

As well as books we sell beautiful and unusual greetings cards and wrapping paper.

We host regular events with a variety of speakers. During half-terms and holidays we often run free children's activities.

In our small and peaceful cafe we serve delicious homemade cakes, and hot and cold drinks.

We welcome browsers, families, well-behaved dogs, teachers, gift-buyers, passers-by and readers of every kind.
