About this Promotion

BRITAIN’S MOST ENJOYABLE BOOKSHOP

What a boast! MOST enjoyable?? MOST BOASTFUL perhaps! The earlier motto was: A Bookshop for the Majority of Minorities but latterly our job has become to help you have a DAY OFFLINE!

And this remains accurate. What we SPECIALISE IN is SURVIVING, and we can only survive in this beautiful but congested and hidden place because we offer the Compleat Bookshop Experience and a service both Quirky and Competent.

While boasting, we also boast New Books (40,000+), Second-Hand (50,000+), Rare and Antiquarian (5,000+), Music, Café, Publishing.

According to an old friend, Brian MacDonald, ‘Books are alright for when you’re young, and when you’re old and past it, but in between, what’s wrong with real life?!’

Scarthin Cafe

t is a vegetarian cafe offering vegan and gluten free food. We serve organic drinks, teas and good coffee, simple meals with delicious salads and our own home-made soups.

The Cafe is in what used to be our living-kitchen – still homely, and only slightly less cluttered. Half-subterranean, light filters down from a small garden, where there are a couple of extra tables when it’s warm and dry enough. In between is the “vineyard” or “Ivanry” with a table for about eight. Alas, Ivan and Dave’s outrageous book-pricing decisions can no longer be observed here, and they have been pushed up another floor, or out onto the Prom. Nevertheless, this is still a cafe where lots and lots goes on!
