Great selection of books upstairs, classical, jazz, folk and world music downstairs. Helpful staff, you can order any book they haven't got on the shelf. They sell their own book / music tokens - great as gifts.

This book shop reminds me of how book shops were when I was growing up, certainly not shelves full of quick sale paperbacks, it is more for the conniseur of reading, staff friendly and helpful, worth having a browse.

Did you know Alan Bennett pops in when he's passing and signs books for them to sell - this might have been mentioned earlier!
