Welcome to Shepherd’s Bush best pub

Welcome to the Defectors Weld! Serving a wide array of european lagers, the finest craft beers, local real ales and sumptuous cocktails. 

Our team of culinary ninjas have mastered the art of refined junk food and will have you salivating at home from the mere memory of one of our burgers. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients, a bit of magic from our kitchen maestros and what you have is one tasty proposition.  

We are at the centre of Shepherds Bush’s nightlife with DJs every weekend and multiple special events each month. From comedy to Bushstock festival we’ve got plenty going on.

We’re also located in the middle of Shepherds Bush geographically, within a few minutes walk of White City and Shepherd’s Bush stations on the Central Line, Shepherds Bush Market and Wood Lane station on the Hammersmith and City and Circle Lines. We’re Westfield adjacent, and right by the iconic Shepherds Bush Empire, we’re a pub in the heart of the action.

Does your drinking team have a quiz problem?! Join us every Monday for our weekly Pub Quiz!

We’re already getting excited for the Rugby World Cup 2019 and you should be too! Get in touch now to book your table to watch every match in front of our large projector screens in your favourite Shepherd’s Bush boozer! 

We like to party. We like, we like to party.

Every Friday and Saturday we have DJs playing until the early hours of the morning! Our late liquor license means the fun doesn’t stop, until you’re ready to drop. The cocktails keep flowing, the beats keep dropping, and the good times never end!

Today's weather It’s slightly cloudy out, just like one of our juicy IPAs! Come in for one!

Refined Junk Food

Guru of grub, gastronomic goliath or simply “Sir Tasty himself”, head chef Francesco and the team love what they do and it shows. Our range of Americana inspired diner cuisine compliments our drinks to perfection. We’re not for the calorie counters, but meat lovers, vegans and veggies alike can come together and find a good meal at the Defectors Weld.

Big Screens. Early opening times confirmed. Cold beers. Tasty breakfast burgers! 


Down to the serious business. We have 5 rotating real ales on the pumps at any time. The bar is fully stocked with our favourite craft beers, European lagers and refreshing ciders.
Keep an eye on the taps and fridges for the likes of Beavertown, Magic Rock, Five Points, Yeastie Boys, Camden, Brixton and many more.

Great Atmosphere

Come here regularly for drinks and always enjoy the atmosphere and selection of drinks. Friendly staff and enough tables and chairs that we mostly always get a table! Recently tried the food for an evening snack and wasn’t disappointed! Will continue to visit and recommend visiting if in Shepherd’s Bush or at Westfield

Amazing Local!

We come here every Monday for the weekly pub quiz, which is such a fab quiz. We also come Friday nights and often on the weekends too. Good range of drinks and food. Plus the staff are friendly and great fun as well. Always good for a chat. Love this pub, will miss it a lot if we move away.
