What Our Customers Say
At Red Lion Books every customer counts and we will always do our very best to help you find the book that is perfect for you. Here are some reflections from our customers.
Red Lion Books is a great local business. Has a wide selection of new and older publications. A very good place to find, or order less easy to find books.
Went in for the first time and bought a beautiful hardback that I hadn’t seen before. lovely staff & very reasonably priced!
