Your One-Stop Shop for Books 

Great Customer Service

If you don’t know what to read next, we’re here to help.


We’re your friendly book-guru, dedicated to guiding you on your perfect story journey.


Don’t just take our word for it though, check out what people are really saying about us on our testimonials page.

Expert Help

We want you to love what you read, so all our staff are experts at what they do.


We’ll help you with book recommendations and we’ll listen to what you’ve enjoyed in the past.


With our extensive book knowledge, we’re sure to find your next favourite book faster than you could eat a slice of Mum’s homemade Dundee cake.


£1,000,000+ Books!

We have hundreds of books on our shelves for you to browse.


Ranging from popular nonfictions to children’s literature, you’re sure to find a book you’ll love here.


But don’t worry, if you can’t find what you’re looking for we can order any book in for you and you’ll usually have it in your hands within 24 hours!


Our shop also permanently has that glorious new book smell, too. 

Need More Than A Book?

Because what's better than a book? 
A book WITH a slice of cake.

Cake and Coffee

We know what readers love: a hot cup of coffee and a slice of their favourite cake.


For the perfect reading experience, we’ve got our very own mini café for you to enjoy whilst you browse.


Visit ‘The Tea Room’ for delicious homemade cakes, a selection of homely teas and also the fabulous locally roasted Campervan coffee.

Book Events

Books are great, but chatting books with others is even better.


Due to Covid, many of our events have been cancelled.


However, that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun, with regular competitions for kids and picture hunts in the high street during the school holidays, there’s still lots going on! 

Little Explorers

If you have a little one who loves books, why not pop on over to our Kid’s Corner during the week?


We have a selection of the newest books in children’s literature, as well as some old favourites to keep your kids entertained whilst you can enjoy a welldeserved quiet cup of tea.

And breathe.
