SquareMeal Review of The Defector's Weld

Hordes of vintage-clad Shepherd’s Bush socialisers gather at this cavernous drinking hole on a Friday night, & it’s easy to see the attraction. The Defectors’ shabby-chic interiors are divided into cosy little areas decorated with bizarre artwork & old sofas. Obvious attention is paid to the drinks list, with a line-up of cocktails joining draught Meantime Lager & a changing roster of ales that might see you quaffing a pint of Boondoggle, Horizon or Redemption bitter. Quick-fix pub grub is the mainstay of the menu, although the kitchen takes care with the likes of wild boar & apple sausages with mash, or venison & red wine pie. Regular DJ evenings & events ensure a constant buzz, helped along by the cheerful staff manning the busy bar.
