Great unpretentious record shop. Found the manager friendly and helpful. Bought a Fall album at a very good price, prices seemed very reasonable in general. Lots of stock so you'll need some time to look through but sure you'll find some gems


Most records on this shop are poorly organized and all second hand ready to the bin, you need gloves, all 100 years undusted stuff. Not worth wasting your time there, shurly you wont buy a thing. As a bonus the shop keeper would look at you as a shop-lifter rather than a costumer.

After hearing something I liked by chance as I walked by I eagerly entered this store to try and find out what it was. I have to say I don't think I've ever been treated more rudely! When I asked what the track was I was told 'It's John Barry' so then I enquired as to whether it was available on CD and the man behind the counter was pretty evasive. I then asked him what it was called and he refused to tell me! Told me to look it up on my iphone! Needless to say I won't be going back there. Totally pretentious, more interested in exclusivety than music. Poor show! James
