The Winding Stair
The Winding Stair is full of ambience and personality aided by its being a unique combination of bookshop and restaurant. Originally popular in the 1970’s with writers and artists the bookshop now specialises in unique and second-hand publications whilst the restaurant works off a simple and organic menu with an extensive wine list. A table overlooking the Ha’penny Bridge is one of the best in town.
