We are a story destination for all ages in our ‘Apothecary to the Magical’. As you enter you are immediately transported into a world of wonder and enchantment. Warm greetings from friendly shop keepers take you on a tour of wild schemes, mysterious plots and kitchenware.

We have a range of carefully selected diverse books for all ages, as well as story-themed products that will delight and inspire.

You can also shop online, with an option for a local Click and Collect if needed.

Our Feastery café serves hot food from 10am to 3pm (4pm on Thursdays) with both mortal and magical options to choose from.

We also have a range of delicious, freshly baked cakes, biscuits and treats on the counter, as well as Dark Woods Coffee and hot chocolate, Teapigs tea and a selection of cold drinks for all ages.  These are served daily from 9.30-4.30 (until 6pm on Thursdays).


We have ‘self-led’ creative activities in the shop and café at all times, as well as board games that you can enjoy at your table.

We also run creative workshops for ages 0-18.  Check our Eventbrite page for details, or sign up to hear about these here.

There are gender neutral toilets on each floor.  We are pleased to announce that we also have a wonderful Changing Places Toilet, thanks to grant funding provided by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities in association with Muscular Dystrophy UK.
