Came here midweek late one afternoon as we were struggling to find a place open for lunch nearby. Enjoyed chesse, ham and tomato toasties with delicious chutney and hot chocolate drink. All excellent value and chance to browse books whilst you eat!

This gem should be discovered and secured in the back-pocket as a regular place to visit, not only for the incredible variety of books, but for the special events which are held throughout the year. Add to that the simple but tasty food that is...More

Aardvark is quite hard to find as it is tucked away in an enormous barn off a small lane in Brampton Bryan. But inside there is an enormous range of second hand books at good prices. It suited me because it has a lot of...More

When we holiday in this area we always visit Aardvark books plenty of books to view and in an order. A lovely café on site. We never leave without a book or two. Worth a visit and we will return again.

Living locally, it's wonderful to take an enjoyable gamble and see if Aardvark have some rare treasures on a topic you're interested in. Nearly always there's something a bit different from the run of the mill Amazon stock. Plus unlike online retailers, you can peruse...More
