Friendly, nice environment, good coffee, you can sit and patter away on a laptop and not get shooed away. Big fan.

Popped in to see the selection of vinyl recently and was pleasantly surprised - from higher-priced, but well-chosen classics, to the cheaper end of the scale, there's a plenty to choose from here and it certainly doesn't feel thrown together or like some sort of hipster box-ticking exercise which can often be the way with places that aren't dedicated record shops.

This is my extended beautiful living room which I truly adore! Coffee, smoothies, cakes, breakfast - all delicious! It's a lovely place to hang out, meet old friends and make new ones. On the last Sunday of the month, they have 1st class musicians play there . The night is also known as 'Clapton Unplugged'. This is a real gem in Clapton and we are extremely lucky to have it on our doorstep. LOVE Lion.


Lion is a truly unique place. A quality shop with a wide selection of records, both new and vintage and staff who know their stuff and are keen to chat to you about music. But also a great place just to grab a coffee and read a book. They are always playing great tunes and the juices and cakes are delicious. Check out their events, they often have live music or photography installations. My favourite place in Clapton.
