    Be sure to pop into Where the Wild Things Are next door - it's Avid Reader's new store specialising in Children's and Young Adult books and gifts. A lot of fun, even if you've left your youth behind. Read more

    Super excellent food. The Japanese rice salad is a winner. Enjoy it in the succulenty courtyard, one of the best havens in Westie.

    Perfect for a tea date. Also ,really special in store events are held here regularly - get your tickets early, they sell out fast!

    Pretty good coffee and a relaxed atmosphere, at least on a quiet afternoon. Nice staff, too!

    Avid hosts many regular meet the author events head to the website or ask in store about the next one ! Gr8 to hear the authors in person perspectives on their work, and support our local talent...

    An Average size book store, but with a great range of books. If they haven't got the book you are chasing, they will get it for you.
