camouflaged amongst the many banks and financial institutions of the city of london lies the trading house, a hidden sanctuary located on the site of the former bank of new zealand. step through the doors and into the golden age of victorian discovery. the magnificent heritage building is a welcoming new pub concept offering generous deli boards, hearty pies and gutsy puds. the hanging kebabs are the star of the show where savory marinades are poured fresh over a suspended skewer. except the marshmallow-strawberry concoction - instead dressed with sailor jerry spiked chocolate sauce! many of the original features of the building remain, looking out over the space from the mezzanine and you'll notice curiosity upon curiosity - all inspired by the seafaring days of the famed, former east india trading company. select an old fashioned ale, cocktail, craft beer or gin from the beautifully hand-drawn almanacs at your table over live music which plays nearly every night. a welcome escape from reality amongst london's own trading heartland.
