Such a great shame, I have to report that our little local gem had to close its over a year ago. It's just an empty shell, greatly missed by we who loved it.

En route to bag some lunch at Tescos, I happened upon this delightful little haven with a small but carefully chosen selection of books, wrapping paper and beautiful cakes. Lunches weren't being served just for this week, but a friendly member of staff showed me a sample menu of what is usually on offer and I will certainly be bringing my colleagues here for lunch. I'm also ditching my e-reader for the delights of browsing for a real book for a change. Fabulous!

We work about 250 metres from this charming little shop and it is utterly delightful. A carefully curated selection of titles from travel to fiction to children's titles...delicious asian lunches and indulgent cakes (whole cakes can be ordered in advance), other present ideas (interesting candles), great cards and wrapping paper. Seating inside and outside. A most welcome addition to the area... we feel very fortunate to have this independent bookshop so close to us... and long may it prosper. Evening talks as well.

Located in the heart of Bankside, Woolfson and Tay is quaint independent bookstore that also serves delectable Asian lunches. Came here a few times for events and general book browsing, and they were always enjoyable experiences. Lovely staff who were knowledgeable about the books on their shelves. Will be back!
