The other reviews are right - this is a great bookshop! Plenty of space for browsing and sitting - quite an achievement in a small space.

Mr B's team are all knowledgeable, extremely well read, articulate and above all a very friendly bunch. The shop isn't laden with junk lit but with books that are on and even in front of trend. Certainly the main stream is well catered for but scattered throughout the shop there are gems, some quirky, some from obscure genre and a goodly number from lesser known foreign authors. My reading tastes have expanded exponentially as a result of taking the advice Nick, Ed and the rest of the team. A must for all bibliophiles.

Great service, super knowledgeable staff and lovely little gem. It is not the easiest place to find but one you do, you will go back again and again.

Leave some room in your suitcase for when you visit Mr. B's in Bath. Really great book selection. Smart and friendly staff who have great recommendations. They keep up well not only with the latest fiction from large and small publishers but they also know about great and creative nonfiction.
