Great food and good service on a strange day (last evening before second lockdown). Slightly quirky mixture of ingredients for vegetable side dishes mostly worked. Sirloin steak fantastic. Only observation is that, whilst the open aspect to the kitchen is appreciated, the extraction system could do with beefing up. Stay safe and look forward to joining you again 'on the other side'.

As a regular of the Bookshop, I honestly couldn’t recommend it enough. Food and drinks are always to a high standard and the overall atmosphere is relaxed yet cool. The staff, however, are the highlight here. Recently, I’ve been popping in for brunch with my newborn regularly and I cannot explain how accommodating and kind the staff have been to an anxious new mum. On my latest visit, staff were really supportive of me discretely breastfeeding at the table, asking me if I needed any water or would like my food to be kept warm so I could enjoy a hot meal (rare for a new mum!). I cannot think of any other location where I’ve been treated with such kindness, empathy and warmth and you’ll have my custom from breakfast, lunch and dinner forever! Thank you - keep doing what you’re doing.

Incredible roast dinner, with outstanding service. Couldn’t recommend enough! All topped off with a lovely idea of giving back to Herefordshire Food bank, with the book shop matching what you donate.

I come to the Bookshop every week for either just a coffee and to work or meet a friend for lunch etc and it’s always absolutely brilliant, my only criticism is that food does always seem slow to come out, but it’s also always worth the wait!

Luckily I saw the cakes/ brownies after I ate. If something on the brunch menu would have mentioned cakes, I believe I would have ordered some.

A truly lovely evening of fantastic food and service. We sat outside on a chilly October evening, but the warmth of the patio heaters made the outdoor area very cosy. Great staff & service. Definitely recommend.
