Have been to the bookshop on many occasions , nice food and friendly service . My personal favourite is the bacon,Brie and cranberry toastie . The jacket potato with filling is also very tasty. Apparently there is a ghost upstairs but I've not seen it yet , maybe it enjoys the food also .

The Nantwich Bookshop Coffee Shop is just what it says. A family business that sells books and also some lovely fresh fare. Full English breakfast, breakfast baps, sandwiches, toasties, pannini, baguettes, ciabatta, home made specials, home made soups. Delicious homemade cakes and scones. We have three main parts to the shop. Alfresco for great outside dining. The downstairs area surrounded by books, where you can bring you well behaved dogs, and then upstairs where you can appreciate the original features of this 1583 building. No dogs allowed upstairs.
