‪Fascinating shop‬
לבד • פבר׳ 2020
‪I love a bookstore. Had a great time looking around this one. Lots of Cornish authors, new and second hand books. I treated myself to a first edition book as it was at a very good price. Chatted to the lady who worked there for ages. She was very helpful. If you like books you will love it there.‬

‪How I love a proper bookshop‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪And Bookends fits that category perfectly. There is a really interesting selection of books, a mixture of new, second hand and rare as well as stationery. One of the best things about it was that it was not just packed with the latest bestsellers but it had some character which reflected those of literary merit from the local area. The gentleman that served me could not have been more helpful with his advice and comments, someone who knew what he was talking about. This is the sort of service that is so hard to find in any shop let alone a bookshop. This really is how a bookshop should be.‬

‪Avoid if you have children & just avoid anyway ‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪We visited the shop after seeing their window display featuring children’s books, but we were made to feel so unwelcome it was horrible. They clearly do not want children in there, so why entice them in? & in any event they should be encouraging children to love books so they should get on board and enter the 21st century. The man was awful & grabbed a roll of plastic off my one year old, which I was in the process of doing anyway. Hyper sensitive owners & hyper rude. ‬

Wow that's some vent, we welcome all ages of people - even dogs are allowed, but as we have to sell our goods we try to keep them in as pristine condition as we can otherwise no one would buy them.

‪Nice shop but RUDE staff‬
משפחה • מאי 2019
‪Nice little shop. BUT if I could rate it 0 I would. The lady behind the counter was so rude my 4 year old was left in tears after the way this woman spoke to her, and we spent the rest of the afternoon explaining to our daughter that she wasnt naughty and that some people are just damn right ignorant. Her people skills are non existent. I was amazed and shocked at how nasty a grown woman could be to such a young child and it ruined our whole day. It's such a shame, as there was some little gems.

Even after we had left her shop she was still talking and pointing at my daughter.‬

‪Excellent book shop with in depth advice on the lesser known novels. Recommended the Scapegoat which is brilliant and the King's General a treat in store. Thanks for being there which you could not get online. Nigel staying at Fowey Hall‬

‪A truly unique and original book shop. Always welcomed with a smile and very accommodating, can always find what I’m looking for and if they don’t have the book on site then always willing to order it in for me. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. The perfect gift shop for book lovers too.‬

‪Excellent Book Shop‬
משפחה • אוק׳ 2018
‪Visited the book shop with my teenage daughter and we both came away with additional reading material, the shop has a mix of new and 2nd hand / vintage books and are well priced. The owner has the knowledge to assist you but is not overbearing and gives you space to look and digested the stock. If your a book worn are just wanted some holiday reading material its the pace to visit.‬

‪A Treasure Trove‬
לבד • אוג׳ 2017
‪Had a great conversation about the Winston Graham set of twelve Poldark novels with the very well informed assistant here. I came away with a couple. It's a treasure trove of local books as well as offering a very fair selection of other works. Many second hand options too. I found a wonderful book on Cornwall's rivers here which has given me a great idea for a local documentary and I was also able to get some OS maps here too. Very worthwhile visit.‬

‪Fantastic small but brilliantly stocked indie bookshop‬
לבד • אוג׳ 2017
‪This is a real oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Fowey despite being right in the heart of the town.
It's stocked with a brilliant range of books, yes biased towards Cornwall and Cornish authors but surely that's welcome & kind of the point in a town like Fowey?
Lots of first editions and out of print stock and the ones I looked at certainly seemed reasonably priced.
Lovely friendly staff too.
Be warned - you won't come away empty handed!
