Spotlight on Independents: Hunting Raven

Frome’s independent book shop, Hunting Raven holds more than 9,000 titles in stock with access to over 500,000 available to order in for the next day.

“Our friendly staff provide an individual and informed service that internet providers just can’t equal. If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock we’ll do our best to order it in overnight – at no extra cost – for your collection. Even the most obscure of books”

Hunting Raven was established over 25 years ago and prides itself on a warm welcome and efficient service. It is managed by Karin and supported by Iona, Tom and Aderyn.

The environment in the shop is one of creativity and inclusivity. The huge range of titles is displayed imaginatively and the staff are supportive and friendly. It has continued to flourish amongst Frome’s independent and quirky spirit. Hunting Raven holds regular events including talks with authors, book signings, discussions and launches.

They are also hosts to some more obscure events (a whittling demonstration took place here earlier this month) and musical performances. Keep up to date with upcoming events and new book releases on their website
