- Ashleigh JAmazing! My favourite book store after just one visit - shame I live nowhere near. Their collection of D&D miniatures is everything I didn't know I needed, and the staff's pun-fuelled post-it notes around the roleplay gaming shelves are hilarious.
- Noel GThis is the best bookstore I have been to in a long time. Not only are there books on nearly every conceivable subject, they have an excellent, extensive games section with both classics and new releases. Downstairs you will also find sheet music and CDs. In the far back of the store is a cozy children's section with everything from Shakespeare to Harry Potter in formats sure to engage.
- Ania AThe best bookstore I’ve ever been! Everybody could find here something to read :)
