Nestled in Ormond Road village, The Grumpy Swimmer is a popular Elwood shop. It’s a special bookshop that specialises in high quality fiction and non-fiction, beautiful children’s books and giftware from local designers.
Walking into The Grumpy Swimmer, you can expect to talk to somebody that has read all of the books they stock. Their featured and favourite books have helpful and honest reviews to help you decide what to read.
If reading & holding onto your thoughts isn’t enough, the team hold a monthly book club on the last Thursday of every month that anybody is welcome to attend.
When the staff don’t have their eyes buried in books or with customers, their favourite local places include, Ebisu Kitchen for lunch and Veruca Salt (next door) for a coffee!
