The Big Comfy Bookshop

Discuss, Learn, Play, Create

Since 2012, The Big Comfy Bookshop has housed thousands of books from pulp crime fiction through to travel, art, cooking and all in between. With hundreds of shelves bulging with books, there's something for everyone.

Open 7 days a week, while-away a few hours in our relaxed environment with a cup of coffee and homemade cake, or even treat yourself to our freshly made jacket potatoes.

In the evening we transform our space to host music, poetry, book clubs and more, with our bar serving real ales and wine, a great alternative night out.

With an ever changing selection of books and an eclectic event schedule, The Big Comfy Bookshop is a destination to return to again and again.
