A mere stroll west from the Queen Vic Market rests Willows & Wine. As well as wine, the walls are stacked with pre-loved books organised according to genre — you're welcome to pick one up while you're sipping and, if you can't put it down, all are available for purchase. A few shelves across from the bar are dedicated to a hoard of games. Hiding not so inconspicuously is an original 70s robot boxing game, the sort that hungry hippo aficionados would probably be grand at.

The other book you might want to consult is the menu — it's got many chapters on wine (by the glass and bottle) and even one on cheese and charcuterie. You're also able to order food in from anywhere that delivers.

This is easily a place you could visit every night of the week and not regret a thing. Chatting to bar staff will be near impossible not to do, they're wonderfully friendly and even host their own book club evenings at the bar. Sit anywhere, order a whiskey — the place is made for you and your readathon quest.
