View our sample menu

Three storeys tall and well over a century old, The Betsey Trotwood is a classic Victorian pub in Clerkenwell - and the local home of live entertainment. 

The pub serves great food and drink (real ales, wines and superb spirits make this one of the best-stocked bars in Clerkenwell), but it’s entertainment that tops the bill, with an acoustic room upstairs and a cellar bar downstairs hosting an eclectic range of live shows.

There’s comedy every Monday night, plus a monthly appearance from Night Howls Comedy Club and even occasional visits from well-known names like Henning Wehn and Jerry Sadowitz. There’s poetry and drama too, while live music comes from a clutch of up-and-coming bands all set to make it big…

You can make your own entertainment here too. If you need a venue for a private function in Clerkenwell, The Betsey offers both the cellar and the upstairs bar for private hire. 

Or, for smaller group get-togethers, you can simply grab a table in the characterful, traditional main bar - where you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy the exceptional food and drink.

Whatever brings you to The Betsey, a warm welcome awaits.

What our customers have said on TripAdvisor

I love this area of London. Had a busy morning in and around Clerkenwell on business and decided to stop at The Betsey for lunch. Glad I did as was a very pleasant experience. Can well recommend the Fish Finger sandwiches. Welcoming staff and a nice traditional style of pub. Worth a visit.
