Since being taken over by Glynn and Natalie, this nice old pub has been renamed from the Market Trader to its original The Bell, and had its tackiness stripped out (sometimes a little too roughly!) to become a genuine warm welcoming local boozer on the corner of your street despite it's location near Petticoat Lane and just across from the City of London boundary.
