The Trader is a large Old Street pub that charms on first glance. An ideal spot to hide from the elements during the winter, and a charming space at which to wile away a sunny afternoon upon a picnic bench, The Trader suits any circumstance. Inside, polished wooden floors, sumptuous booth and leather sofa seating, mellow colour schemes and a sophisticated, heritage-focused atmosphere warmly welcomes guests.

Opening from Monday to Friday, with a focus on on lunch and after work drinks, The Trader pimps itself out over the weekend for private and corporate functions. The open kitchen next to the bar offers a hearty section of British dishes such as scampi and chips, fish and chips and a range of filled and stacked burgers. They have a large selection of lagers and ales, among which Hoegaarden, Becks Vier, Stella, Kronenbourg and Leffe are on draught. They cater also for the wine lovers with a decent wine list.
