A unique city centre pub with a rich history


Nicholson’s pubs are known for their perfect pints, great food, individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities - and The Woodins Shades is certainly no exception.

Dating back over 150 years, our pub has a rich history and has long been a favourite meeting place for the traders of Spitalfields Market and Petticoat Lane Market.

Many people don’t know that, in the Middle Ages, the historic Sunday street market was in a tree-lined country road called Hog’s Lane, possibly because pigs were kept in nearby fields!

The Woodins Shades is a great spot near you to catch up with friends, relax with family, chat with colleagues, enjoy lunch on Liverpool street, and generally enjoy the finer things in life.
