No - just select evenings. Steak Thursday and sharing plates one evening. Sunday lunch is a popular sitting but no idea how late they serve on a Sunday

The Bookshop serves a concise steak menu Thursday to Saturday using grass-fed, dry-aged Herefordshire beef, along with other dishes focused on seasonality and sustainability. Our bar serves a small but punchy selection of wines and cocktails. On Sunday's we serve a Sunday Lunch that's better than your Mum's.
