From the outside The Book Cover appears to be a vintage bookshop.... never judge a book by it’s cover! Step inside and you’ll find it’s a completely different story. You’ll be immersed in the nostalgic atmosphere of a bygone era … Our first class bar specialises in creating tantalising cocktails and craft spirits. We house an extensive range of gins ‘new and old’, boutique beers and a great selection of wines from around the world. The Book Cover is a Speakeasy Bar, the perfect venue to indulge in some clandestine sipping in laid back, atmospheric surroundings.

    The service was absolutely great! Loved the live magic (although I'm kinda one sided on that, as I a magician myself). Loved the atomosphere and how unique the style is, will definitely be coming back

    Great mixologist in this bar, amazing cocktails and reasonable price from £8-12. We went for food too and they have a good selection of fish and meat tapas all about £3.50-5 and the ones we ordered were good value for money and tasty. This is more of a drinks place though if you're a real foodie. Great atmosphere and don't forget the visit their fb page for the secret password to enter! We'll go back for sure.
