These three fabulous new Deans traditional shop blinds have been installed at The Betsey Trotwood (formerly The Butchers Arms) which is a classic Victorian pub in Clerkenwell – and the local home of live entertainment. The blinds are installed for Shepherd Neame, one of Deans longest standing customers, with whom we have been working for many years. The UV resistant blinds covers are in a soft classic grey shade with valance text finely picked out in gold.
The name Betsey Trotwood is taken from the Dickens novel of the same name. She is David’s great-aunt on his father’s side, and has an unfavourable view of men and boys, having been ill-used and abandoned by a worthless husband earlier in life. Appearing in the novel’s first chapter, she demonstrates her uncommon personality and her dislike of boys by storming out of the house after hearing that David’s mother has had a son, rather than the daughter to whom Trotwood intended to be the godmother.
However, there will be no “storming out” when you visit the Betsey Trotwood today. Good food, a fine selection of drinks and a wide variety of entertainment will keep you coming back time and time again.
