I adore this shop. They have the best selection of Academic and provoking books I think I have ever seen. Most impressively, they do not show a bias to the right or the left, only a bias toward good writing. With knowledgeable (and good looking) staff and a lovely coffee shop attached, this is a place I spend over and hour every time I can when I pass through London. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
nice place where to eat for lunch, or for a slice of cake and tea. good selection of teas, cakes, food, and nice staff. it is my favourite spot each time i go to london.

Good bookshop. I find it quite hot in the winter if you come from outside all wrapped up make sure you take your coat off first.
Good resource but prices need to be varied for professionals and students

Staff have knowledge on *every* book they shelve! It's incredible to be able to pick up a book then spend an hour discussing it with them and being given similar recommendations. They also let you sit down and read, no strings attached, which is lovely. The staff here care more about the customers than the profits.
A great little bookshop open late-ish. Great for stopping by after work for an hour or so with a really great choice and alcoves for sitting and reading. The small selection is well curated with guest shelves which can make choosing a new book a lot easier than in a big Waterstones. Only one small issue is that I found the loud, minimalist techno quite annoying, I think some low classical or jazz would suit it more and be less intrusive.
