One of the few remaining record shops. They have a great selection of original vinyl from the 1950s to 1980s all in great condition. The shop has been in Ealing since 1983 and always has a great selection, with new finds every time I've been in there.

The food at The Grange is delicious. They also serve some scrumptious white wine and do an amazing pub quiz during the week! It's a great place to cosy up in the winter or excellent in the summer - their beer garden is particularly pretty.
