I went with my son, he enjoyed browsing the books and bought one. I loved the unusual cards they sell. Best of all is the cafe where we had a delicious lunch, the food is made with such care, and the homemade chocolate fudge cake was to die for. There is something alluring about the whole atmosphere of people browsing... More

Popped in for a quick look around. Mainly looked at children's books for under 5s, the selecton available was largely factual. Cosy play area tho. The cafe was busy and looked good although we didn't try it out. May return for a longer browse minus 3 year old!
