Has reopened as a restaurant. We didn't try food but décor and menu looks great. We like coming here for a pre-dinner drink in the garden before going to Sails Restaurant.

We love morning tea at the bookshop! Great enclosed garden with outdoor tables which is fantastic if you have small children, and a few toys to keep them occupied while you enjoy a coffee and delicious cake. An interesting selection of books also.
