Such a lovely bookshop with a lovely owner to match. Could not have been more helpful for recommendations for our two children including brilliant choices for our son with learning difficulties. Fantastic.

This is a well established book shop on the high street. Extremely helpful every time I have visited. If what I wanted was not in stock then then it was ordered for me. Advice on stocked books for all ages of readers and all tastes.
