About us - Hunting Raven, frome


Hunting Raven was bought by Winstone's and has a long tradition of independent bookselling excellence

We are situated on Cheap Street, a medieval street with a leat running down the centre. The bookshop has over 9,000 titles in stock and access to a further 500,000 on next day delivery. The shop is managed by Tina and supported by Tom, Iona, Aderyn and Alice. The shop has a speciality in Children's, Local, and Arts and Crafts books. We pride ourselves on a warm welcome and efficient service, we look forward to meeting you.


Frome Festival

We are proud to be the official bookseller to the Frome Festival.



We were delighted that Tina Gaisford-Waller joined the team at the end of May 2018. Frome born and bred, Tina is thrilled to be taking on the role: ‘Hunting Raven occupies a special place in Frome’s affections and is an important part of the town’s thriving independent scene. The shop has had a cracking year already, making the regional shortlist of this year’s British Book Awards' Independent Bookshop of the Year, and I cannot wait to build upon its considerable success.’

As a former publicity and marketing consultant for a well-known children’s book publisher, Tina is particularly excited to develop Hunting Raven’s events programme. ‘I hope my passion and enthusiasm – for books and for Frome – will help to forge ever-stronger links between Hunting Raven and the community. It’s important to me that the shop offers something for everyone. If you’ve not popped in before, then do! You can be assured of a warm welcome, expert advice, and a brilliant selection of books, cards and gifts. I couldn’t be prouder to  join the Hunting Raven team.’
