Situated on beautiful medieval Cheap Street (the one with the stream running down it), Hunting Raven is Frome’s much-loved and long-standing independent bookshop.

With over 9,000 fiction and non-fiction titles in stock, and access to a further 500,000 on next-day delivery, we really do have something for everyone. We also stock a wide range of gifts, cards, stationery, games and children’s activities.

We also offer a full programme of events, from author talks and signings, to our unique Proof Pudding Club – a pre-publication review club (that involves eating pudding).
