    They have a lot of music scores including some rare finds (e.g. contemporary graphic scores)! If you are patient you can find a lot of gems for fraction of the RRP!

    Great cosy place to look at old books or sit back & read your own. Cafe has great options drink & eat. Heaters & boardgames to suit any gathering.

    Great 2nd bookshop out front, neat courtyard in the back with heating in winter. Top coffee. Very nice vegetarian food choice. Mulled wine in winter delightful.

    For second hand books, the price you pay for the quality of some books is just not worth it. The cafe courtyard looks amazing though.

    Outside court yard area is rare to find in a cafe that also serves alcohol.

    Somehow the coffee tastes better when surrounded by books. Lunch and breakfast are not bad either, especially in the courtyard out the back.
