I got lost looking for this place last time, but found it this time! Fabulous array of old and new books, and to our surprise the former cafe has now encroached into the book area. My impression is that there are fewer books than 4 years ago, but I did manage to spend a bit of money, even though I do think there were fewer serendipitous quirky finds to be had. We had some very nice coffee, served a little tardily, after being asked to move from dining tables to one at the end of a row of bookshelves, not a prome position for enjoying the ambience. People tended to trip over us a bit. I got the impression that if we hadn't had our camping clothes on we'd not have been asked to move, given there were about a dozen dining tables (where we first perched) empty and in fact we'd have made the place look busier in my opinion. But, the fire was a long way away, such a pity when we'd have lingered and probably have ordered eats had we been allowed to sit near the blaze. (It was a very cold day, but the barn was warm enough .. it's just that there is something enticing about a fire.) I'm a keen book-buyer, and would have spent more there, too, had not my husband been offended by being asked to move by a very charming but firm waiter, and then having been lost by a charming young. Food staff might be given a bit of basic training in how the books are arranged if they are goign to stand near the fire and chat with rather more up-market-seeming customers. (Yes, I was jealous of their proximity to the fire.) I guess what I'm saying is that the bookish atmosphere has been changed to a restauanr one, with books on the side, and felt the experience was less becuase of that. Next time I guess I'll order books online ... or have coffee somewhere where we aren't hustled into a corner. Such a shame, I used to love the place.
