About the Pub

On the corner of Wood Lane and Uxbridge Road. The unusual pub name is thought to be derived from the fact that one of the "Cambridge five" Cold War spies worked nearby at the BBC and 'weld' is a joint/joining i.e. a coming together. Bought by Young's in 2014, the pub has been refurbished sympathetically and brightened up.

On the ground floor is the large horseshoe-shaped main bar with five handpumps and a mix of banquettes, table and chairs. An upstairs room with a bar is available for hire. DJs play music Friday & Saturday evenings.

NB in common with many other pubs, there have been recent feedbacks (March 2022) about reduction of cask ale choice to just two or three.
