Shops & Restaurant

Intriguing book titles, locally produced gifts and home cooked food, it sounds too good to be true!

Tasteful, locally produced gifts make that hard to find present a little easier.  From ceramics to crafts,  paintings to photographs, jewelry to witches (OK, I know it doesn’t start with the same letter but I’m doing my best)!

The huge range of gift cards offers one of the largest selections in the area. There’s something for everyone – local views, humour, works of art – birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, new arrivals, the list goes on!

Books, now this is the area we’ve really been working hard at. With a focus on local history, architecture, archaeology, general history, railways, canals (after all we’re very close to the famous Barrowford locks), some rather unusual titles which are changing all the time and some lovely volumes published by the Bodleian library, this is ideal for the bibliophiles among you.

Typical comments from our customers:

Whenever I visit my son who lives nearby I call in to the bookshop and invariably leave with a selection of purchases!’ 

‘You have the best range of books we have seen for years.’ 

‘For the size of the shop you have an amazing selection of books’.

Having visited the shop, enjoy a coffee and cake in the licensed cafe or a homemade lunch using local produce (including vegetables from our own garden).
