Visit our lovely little independent bookshop on Bar Street for an eclectic collection of books, unusual cards and pressies, home baked cakes, freshly ground coffee, hot chocolate made with real chocolate chips and a selection of other interesting drinks.


Imagine looking through a window and wanting to explore what’s within; a place where you feel safe and cosy the moment you step inside; a shop where the clock seems to stop; where suddenly there is time to enjoy books, time to share them with the people you love. This is Wardle & Jones – a space to be curious in comfort.




















We stock a small but eclectic selection of books, cakes and drinks for all ages and - we think - all tastes. Even better, if you can’t find what you fancy we offer a book ordering service and can usually have books delivered to the shop for you within just a couple of days.
