This was one of the few places I entered on an exploratory visit to Chipping Norton. It looked like a sort of cross between a second hand bookshop & a Waterstones but with a cafe . There were a load of new books,for sale a couple of settees & a cafe counter. The first thing I noticed was the pungent... More

A lovely book shop serving coffee and cakes. A great place to come into and enjoy books and a coffee. Service a little slow but a good coffee. Limited seating area .

For a small book shop they have a very well thought through selection of books. Its in a great location and its really worth supporting an independent retailer in my opinion. It is idea to have a browse then a cup of coffee. It is hard however to ignore some miserable staff. No all just some. I would have thought... More

Reading these reviews just goes to prove that you can't please all of the people all of the time. Jaffe & Neale deserves its excellent reputation and I was surprised to read any negative feedback. I'd say that the couple of reviewers who gave a poor rating are missing the point; what you have here, ladies and gentlemen, is the... More

I pay a visit to this wonderful shop every time I'm in Chippy. I never leave empty handed, or, thanks to their delicious coffee and cake selection, hungry. A couple of years ago I sought advice from the shop on a book for my 3 year old grandson to read to try and understand and come to terms with an... More

A brilliant,small, family run bookshop that you can rely on to stock a good range of well chosen books. The cafe is shoe-horned in amongst the books and spreads out into the market square. Their friendly staff serve excellent homemade cakes. Upstairs there is a selection of secondhand books, and a pleasant space for meetings.
