Set up on one of Falmouth’s small side streets at the tip of a dragway between shops on Market Street, Beerwolf Books is something of a secret and provides a dual offering of books and beer.
An eighteenth century building with a mock-Tudor facade, inside through the red door, climb up the creaking wooden staircase and be greeted by a generously populated bookshop and a well-stocked bar.
Offering the best of both worlds, Beerwolf Books Freehouse specialises in second-hand and remaindered literary fiction and good quality non-fiction. The book shop, off to one side, and with a place to rest your beer while you browse, sets the mood, and invites those who stumble upon the building to sit down with a book and read for hours. Lingering is encouraged, as they also store a number of board games and a pinball machine, to while the hours away during a rainy Cornish day. The beer also comes with good recommendations, among five cask ales are 80 Shilling, Marble Manchester Bitter and Penzance Brewing Potion 9.
The deep red walls, rustic furniture, dark wood and just-enough daylight which streams through paned windows, creates a cosy atmosphere that appeals immediately to those looking for somewhere to rest that’s a little bit different. Sit and read, write or draw with a drink amid the buzz of conversation.
