Owners Cate Olson and Nash Robbins. Friendly staff person - Penny.
An 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' - They do a range of interesting events - and they also keep chickens.
"It's warm, welcoming, erudite, broad-ranging and close to some amazing walks so I can combine my two favourite pastimes. The owners are knowledgeable and enthusiastic, they've got both new and second hand stock to browse through. They also host workshops, talks, and sell their own type of notebook made with the covers of beautiful old books that are too damaged to sell. Could you ask for anything more from a bookshop."

'As good as it gets.' Phil Boakes.
'Visited this wonderful bookshop myself today - (19th Feb 2011) It's almost like a book house with several rooms upstairs and the new and second-hand books enticingly displayed together. They have a special collection of books from the Bloomsbury set - (that is the authors not the publishers) and a cosy little corner for children that made me want to huddle down into it. Also one of the only bookshops I've ever visited where - instead of me buying a book to support them - they gave me a book. Alfriston is the most beautiful village to visit if you've never been there. Or go just to visit this shop.' Isabel.
