From the outside The Book Cover appears to be a vintage bookshop.... never judge a book by it’s cover! Step inside and you’ll find it’s a completely different story. You’ll be immersed in the nostalgic atmosphere of a bygone era … Our first class bar specialises in creating tantalising cocktails and craft spirits. We house an extensive range of gins ‘new and old’, boutique beers and a great selection of wines from around the world. The Book Cover is a Speakeasy Bar, the perfect venue to indulge in some clandestine sipping in laid back, atmospheric surroundings.

    Food not particularly good, too much fried food (you can smell it as you enter the place). Cheese board not of local cheeses, which was disappointing and not served at room temperature. Although it is summer the restaurant was cold as the air conditioning was on full, the poor waitress had to climb up on tables twice during our time there to close the vents due to customers requesting it be turned down or off. We took our seats at the reserved table thinking it was table service due to staff attending tables, which is not the case. However the staff were very friendly and helpful when we requested food be changed (the hummus was terrible, far too salty). The bar is great and the best feature about the place, the bar staff know their gins! The seating booths are also a nice feature.

    The setting and atmosphere were good and the cocktails were fantastic. However the food service was poor and we had to wait a long time as there had been a problem with our order. Also when the food came it was disappointing. We had the meat and cheese board - it consisted of cream crackers and ritz biscuits - a bit basic in my opinion. And the meat looked like it had come out of a packet from tescos!

    Fantastic restaurant and bar! The food was delicious, the service was brilliant and the drinks fab! The idea of the speakeasy was done well, the decor was fab & we were welcomed at the door. The barman took time to listen what we liked & helped us pick cocktails we loved. The food overall was fantastic, although the buns for the sliders were perhaps a little dry this was really the only fault we could find. I particularly enjoyed the prawns and the squid - cooked to perfection! Just as we were about to leave the magician arrived, and he was happy to start a little early & show us some tricks - we were genuinely baffled & amazed! A great evening, we'll definitely be back.

    While experience was disappointing. The website hype didn't live up to the experience !

    Great decor, nice cocktail but far too pricey. Such a shame as the place is so original it would no doubt be very popular if it wasn't so overpriced but it was a sat night and most tables were empty which affected the atmosphere. I like upmarket experiences and am willing to pay for it if necessary but the cocktail prices alone would put me off coming again. Just feels greedy and unnecessary - pity....

    Love the decor and the people really friendly good service fries too salty. Shame no entertainment thought they'd be a singer or musican or dancers (not strippers) as weeknights have things on but not Saturday. Was very disappointed in this sense as found people only stayed for a drink and we were only Ones staying and eating, a singer/ entertainment would have encouraged people to stay all night! Especially if staff acted as a role really like it Is speakeasy, maybe with an acting energy i.e. Give name for reservation with password at the end and librarian acting like real librarian. Feel entertainment would encourage people to stay and travel to go like we did, (we travelled 2:30 hours to go) thus people would spend more. Not sure if recommend as it seems like any other cocktail bar think it has so much potential to be unique and a top sought after location just needs an entertainment tweak.

    I came here for the first time with my husband to celebrate my birthday - on entering we were greeted by "Ms Labrowski" and shown to our table. Due to being a quiet weekday evenings, offered one of the VIP booths. This really has been thoughtfully decorated and there is definitely a feel of 1920s Speakeasy I would say. Great background music. As only a couple of other tables occupied, there was not the atmosphere perhaps of a busy bar, however we were made welcome and service great. Being a Tues, this was Classic Film Showing night - nice touch with popcorn pot offered. We ate several Tapas dishes to go with the cocktails and enjoyed everything. Price-wise it was not cheap however quality is there and this was after all a celebration! Would definitely return but will try a busier night with magician etc to get a different take on it.

    The dishes were much bigger than regular tapas so we ordered and ate too much. The air conditioning was rather fierce. The magician made it feel like a proper night out.

    Fantastic night, a classy joint offering escapism for a few lovely hours. Staff service impeccable, especially cocktail guy, very knowledgeable. Food fantastic, drank cocktails in a private booth whilst listening to live jazz. Superb
