 Best Pub in London 2015/16 - DesignMyNight Awards

Best All-In-One Venue 2014/15 - DesignMyNight Awards

Welcome to a pubbing experience like no other. The Aeronaut pays tribute to the amazing discovery of flight with their airborne feats of cabaret and circus performers. 

The interior satisfies the traditional Pub get-up with chunky woods and a grand bar. But, one thing Aeronaut boasts (bar the twirling and catapulting acrobats) is an onsite brewing company ran by Laines meaning you can get a real crafty pint straight from barrel to bar. You can practically smell the hops.

By day, Aeronaut comes complete with a sun trap beer garden framed by funky side booths (refuge for when the rain inevitably comes). Reviving the circus style aesthetic of the past, there's coconut shy, hook-a-duck and strong man booths clad with the traditional striped colours and quirky circus font. Perfect for alfresco dining with a pint of ale and a plate of good hearty grub. By night, Aeronaut becomes something else entirely. The pub becomes an arena. Spot lights beam down, the stage comes out and the performers parade around (hula-hoops in tow) and the mighty disco ball descends. Their crew of aerial acrobats and glamorous gymnasts perform balancing acts, spinning sensations and circus show classics.

I've never dreamt of running away with the circus, I always liked my mum too much. But now that i'm all grown up, packing my own lunchboxes with Dairylea Dunkers for work and heading to destinations the likes of Aeronaut, i'm gone I tell you; I...

A wonderful New Year's Eve party atmosphere with some great circus acts. Thoroughly recommended. Such a shame about the fire when we had to flee. The staff were amazing to get everyone out safely. Please please rebuild this great pub and venue. visited Aeronaut on 31 Dec 2016

It was engaging the whole way through funny and the performers were really talented as well. So reasonably priced for a circus ticket and the dinner and drinks were reasonably priced as well and I have no complaints on the quality of the products either. It was a great night! thanks !

Wonderful experience, great atmosphere. I celebrated my 50th birthday at the Aeronaut. They re-arrange two tables to fit all my 32 guests, near to the bar. The show was hilarious, more a cabaret show than a circus though, but very entertaining. The Tina Turner impersonator did a brilliant job as a. M.C. for the night. The D.J. after the show played our favourite tunes from the 80's. Great and friendly atmosphere with everyone dancing and having a good time. Denne the manager gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne and had been really helpful throughout the process of booking and during the night to me and all my guests. Thanks Aeronaut for a memorable night! Joca visited Aeronaut on 09 Dec 2016

Tina tuner dinner lady was very good and held the evening together well. Food ok but seemed rather warmed up and didn't have a feel of being freshly cooked and we were told to get there for 7pm as they like to get the dinner over before the acts come out, . in fact the interval was long enough to have food then if you wish. Drinks were good, my beer was great, very tasty and brewed on the premises. The acts were good but some seem to lake some finishing or sparkle. It was a good night, somewhere different but would i go again, no. All the staff were very friendly. visited Aeronaut on 26 Nov 2016

The circus, venue and acts were amazing. Defiantly would recommend. However I have to say that the food was pretty terrible and overpriced (for cheap pub food in London) - but saying that, you don't go to the circus for the fine dining. Go for the circus and pints - skip the food. Tom visited Aeronaut on 25 Nov 2016

Great fun, thought the acts were a good mix, good dance floor afterwards only criticism was the food was pretty average, if you are only going to offer a burger as a main, it wouldn't take much to make it a high quality piece of meat. but would still come back maybe not eat. visited Aeronaut on 25 Nov 2016

Went on Friday night. Very entertaining show, great staff, interesting venue and good garden. Meal was nice but was expensive for food and drinks though, and booking system via designmynight long winded and awkward, and a cheeky unnecessary booking fee. Would return again but probably would eat elsewhere first, highly recommended for the show and a fun night out. visited Aeronaut on 11 Nov 2016

I booked a table in the bar to eat for 6.30pm and they stated that if I'm late by more than 15mins I'll lose my table. So got there at 6.15 on the day and they didn't have a table booked. They told me I can eat at 7pm in the circus part as I had also a ticket for the circus. They didn't make an attempt to admit there mistake. So I showed them my email to prove my booked times for a table. Other than that the circus experience was really good and organised. visited Aeronaut on 05 Nov 2016

Very nice and friendly staff, but food... I ordered a halloumi burger - dry cold bun with a piece of rocket covering halloumi and falafel filling. No chips or salad with it, had to collect it myself and paid £10 for it - very disappointing experience. visited Aeronaut on 29 Oct 2016

We were there for the Halloween Circus. We had such an amazing night. The staff were warm and friendly and entertaining. The entertainment was spectacular aside from Tina Turner Tea Lady. She was rude to the audience and swore about them when they wouldn't pipe down... it was such a downer. And, to be honest... who remember Tina Turner anyways? The crowd there was way too you to remember her. I certaintly can't...and I am 34! visited Aeronaut on 29 Oct 2016

Really fantastic night - atmosphere buzzing. The show was great but we were given a table behind a pillar so couldn't watch from our table and had to stand behind the stage and did not get a full view. We also couldn't stand in our group as there was not enough space so had to split up. Acts were fabulous though. More comedy would have made it even better. visited Aeronaut on 29 Oct 2016

We all had a great night, loved the entrainment and old school music, was an epic night.. thank you aeronaut for the lovely evening, bar stuff were great and the lady who organised where you are seated was fantastic... but unfortunately the waiting stuff need to smile a bit and not get so shirty there was 30 if us we all ordered food at different times and people move around so they weren't on the table where they gave number when ordering there food, we were all in one long section so it it was fine.. I understand it's annoying but there was no need to get pissed off people moving you can't chan them to a seat.. we like to mingle..we eventually made the women waitress smile and laugh when we took charge .. other than that we had a brilliant night.. would definitely recommend to others and go again myself..

Felt a bit disorganised when we arrived. We had booked a table but none of the staff seemed to know where this table was! Quite a rude front of house woman seemed annoyed that I had given my surname and not my first name on arrival, huffed a bit at us! After this the experience was fab, nice food, great show and good atmosphere. visited Aeronaut on 22 Oct 2016
