Square Meal Review of Pelt Trader ?

Hopheads are flocking to this new City venture from the guys behind The Euston Tap and The Holborn Whippet. Located deep under the platforms of Cannon Street station, the Pelt Trader doesn’t try to win friends with its prosaic decor – think bare walls, dull pub mirrors and a Davy Crockett-style canoe suspended overhead. No, the boxy bar’s USP is its range of craft cask ales and kegs hidden behind a beer wall. Prices start at £3 a pint for a revolving cast of 17 tapped brews, although big sellers such as Kernel Pale Simcoe or Buxton Wild Boar tend to run out quickly. No problem – simply order Buxton Imp, Tiny Rebel Billabong or Benedictiner Weissbier instead. Wine drinkers have a useful crop of sub-£30 bottles, and the owners plan to stock up their kitchen with provisions from Borough Market – thin-crust pizzas, charcuterie platters, goat meatballs and so on.

    The List :: Pelt Trader

    Pelt Trader opened up round the corner from Cannon Street Station back in March and sat atop my craft beer bar wishlist for many months before I finally made it in December. With more than 16 exciting beers on tap at once, discerning City drinkers (they exist) finally have somewhere to go for a good pint. The range of beer is superb and well priced. We stuck to halves to get through the likes of Moor Raw, Weird Beard Hive Mind, Lagunitas IPA, Tiny Rebel Zool, and To Øl Frostbite from Denmark. There's normally a German lager, a cider, a wheat beer and a fruit beer of some kind to keep everyone happy (plus wine, spirits etc for kids). On the food front, there are Ray's enormous 18" pizzas and £4 Mountain Meat boards..

  2. The Pelt Trader: Pizza and Beer in the City of London If you like beer, you like pizza and you work in the City of London, then check out the Pelt Trader near London Cannon Street. They have 16 beers on tap and a selection of giant pizzas - all 18 inches of it (12" also available). It's as simple as that. We ordered the pepperoni, chorizo and red onion pizza. The GF and I couldn't finish it (I let myself down), but the bartender was kind enough to provide us with a takeaway box to ensure none of it was wasted...
