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.

Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
