Very small bookshop. Never answer their phone so you can check stock before you make an unnecessary journey. Very limited stock and has no association with the publishing company of the same name. Go to Foyles instead.
Plenty of selection but the staff are not as attentive as they used to be. If you need legal literature, you're probably better off going to wildeys down the road from this place. Nonetheless I cannot give them any negative comments.

Staff have knowledge on *every* book they shelve! It's incredible to be able to pick up a book then spend an hour discussing it with them and being given similar recommendations. They also let you sit down and read, no strings attached, which is lovely. The staff here care more about the customers than the profits.
A great little bookshop open late-ish. Great for stopping by after work for an hour or so with a really great choice and alcoves for sitting and reading. The small selection is well curated with guest shelves which can make choosing a new book a lot easier than in a big Waterstones. Only one small issue is that I found the loud, minimalist techno quite annoying, I think some low classical or jazz would suit it more and be less intrusive.
