About the Pub

Neighbourhood pub with pleasant, decked, partly-covered beer garden/patio and garden. A 2016 refurbishment has introduced post-modern decor, with exposed brickwork, tiling and plenty of wood in the light and airy bar and eating area. Gins are a speciality - note the home-made infusions in glass flasks behind the bar (rhubarb & custard, anyone?). Handy for Chiswick Business Park and the Russian Orthodox Church. The separate function room is a converted stable, said to have been used by horses pulling freight barges along the Thames nearby.

Historic Interest

Three -storey, originally detached public house with single storey function room (The Wellesley Room) to west side. Built by Adam Askew in 1860. Adam Askew owned the land and was an important landowner of the time and built in Chiswick, Acton and Shepherds Bush (hence the naming of Askew Road in London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham). This was one of the first buildings built on Wellesley Road. The name ‘The Pilot’ comes from the pilot horse, which was the horse that was tied to the river barge or tug boat that helped it to be moved and steered. The building was used for stabling pilot horses and that is where the name comes from. The old hay store is in use as a garden/function room. The attractive, historic building is on a prominent corner and provides a landmark in the heart of the predominantly residential Wellesley Road Conservation Area. It is a good example of a Victorian pub built to serve a growing residential estate.
