1 Spa Lane, Retford, Nottinghamshire DN22 6EA, UK – 01777 869224

Good shop wide selection will order if not on shelf

Always very helpful. I have phoned with a book title, ordered over the phone and collected within a couple of days. On a par with amazon prices once you have added post and package and need your book within a particular time frame. Also more reliable.

35 Churchgate, Retford DN22 6PA, UK – 01777 711441

Excellent shop with an array of choice ranging from classics to modern fiction. Lovely tea room and I like the fact it is spread over 2 floors. Friendly staff, would recommend

What an absolutely beautiful shop. Indeed, it is more of an experience than a shop! You walk in to a cosy warm parlour with a fire and fireplace, and cosy seating in front of it. In the back room is the tea room serving the most delicious cakes and tea in beautiful crockery. Then upstairs are the modern books, again with cosy furniture to rest in while you browse. If you haven’t visited this shop, you must! The staff are absolutely lovely as well! Highly recommend!!!
