Specialist record shops can often be intimidating places, so it's refreshing - in fact, it's absolutely brilliant - to wander into Rubadub and be catered to by some of the friendliest staff around. That's not to say that they don't know their stuff…

Long-established music bar with live bands, a record shop and vegan-friendly dining, plus fizzy pop brewed in-house.
