Good service and good food. Made some last minute accommodations when we realised we had made a mistake with the food order and everything went smoothly. visited The Defector's Weld on 21 Nov 2017

We had a large lunch of about 16 people and it was brilliant. The pub wasn't too crowded but the atmosphere was nice and was definitely reasonably priced. A fantastic time was had by all. visited The Defector's Weld on 19 Nov 2017

Really enjoyed the food & drink options. Good atmosphere too & only slight drawback was that given how busy the bar was, the bar team seemed to have more than enough to contend with serving at the bar to be able to keep an eye on the food tables. A minor point & no hesitation in recommending the DW. visited The Defector's Weld on 15 Nov 2017

The music was too loud visited The Defector's Weld on 28 Oct 2017

Reply from The Defector's Weld

Hi there, Thank you so much for your 4 star review. We're sorry about the loud noise, we do have DJs that play over the weekends, whilst we remind them to keep the noise down sometimes they get a bit over excited trying to make sure the noise is kept to a more suitable venue We hope to see you again and that we'll get that extra star! Thanks, Kat

Always a great atmosphere and fantastic food. He music was a bit too clubby at points though Alice visited The Defector's Weld on 28 Oct 2017

Reply from The Defector's Weld

Hi Alice, Thank you so much for a brilliant review. The music volume is something on our radar as we have DJs who want to get people up and dancing over the weekend but can get carried away with the volume. We'll remind them all about this. We hope to see you another time. Thanks, Kat

Good pub ruined by crazy loud music. The manager must aspire to run a club. visited The Defector's Weld on 20 Oct 2017

Reply from The Defector's Weld

Hi there, My name is Kat, I'm the Sales & Marketing coordinator here. I am so sorry that the music was loud. On Fridays we do have DJs that get carried away with the volume as they want people to have a good night. We will remind them to be conscious of the level of noise from their music. We hope that this does not deter you from coming to the Defectors in the future. Thanks, Kat

My friend was turned away for wearing tracksuit bottoms. Despite having booked a table. I eventually found the small print in the terms and conditions attachment of the booking confirmation email, but they only comment of sportswear during QPR match days. Annoying and frustrating.

Bar staff really nice this week. Let us taste quite a few wines. Table was a bit small, having booked it for 15 people! Music went uphill after midnight though - would be great if DJ could start this genre a bit earlier. figgy visited The Defector's Weld on 18 Aug 2017

Superb Sunday lunch as always. Perfectly cooked and unfaultable, good selection of vegetables expertly cooked, perfect gravy and a Yorkshire pudding filled with gravy. An easy choice. The only issue being they often run out too early! Good selection of real ales and beers, on this occasion plenty of space to grab a table although booked one anyway just to be sure. visited The Defector's Weld on 07 May 2017

We booked the Snug for 30 people - I think around 50 turned up but we all fitted in well. The downstairs bars seemed really loud when I arrived and so when I went up to the Snug I was sol relived of the nicer acoustics - even with the numbers I could hear what people were saying next to me. Staff good and accommodating to our 'demands' of how we ran our tab. Booking was also good. The only negative I would say is that later on they turned on music which was not necessary and too loud. I would recommend the Snug for a 'drinks' gathering. visited The Defector's Weld on 05 May 2017

Looking for somewhere to eat near the Bush Theatre, I'm not sure that this was a good choice. It's a noisy pub with loud music and the food was very average - some of it was actually inedible - and not cheap. The banquette seating is also too low for the table and made eating really quite uncomfortable. The staff were nice. visited The Defector's Weld on 26 Apr 2017

My favorite place. 2 4 1 cocktails weekdays 5-7, super good cocktails as well. The staff are really nice and the theme of the pub is like really cool and hipster. (hence the name defector) The food is amazing and the upstairs is a nice addition to the space.

booked a table for dinner on friday night at 7pm. found it among the heaving, noisy hordes downstairs, not upstairs where expected. (no thanks to disinterested hipster staff). plenty of ambience but long lines for drinks and the guy at the cocktail bar upstairs was PAINFULLY slow. if you want to shout while you eat and/or drink,, and watch the hipsters at play, this is your place visited The Defector's Weld on 17 Mar 2017

Got a warning from the doorman/bouncer because he thought my trousers where tracksuit bottoms (which they weren't) yet let the ones behind me who were wearing branded sports hoodies with a word. Ribs were dry and overcooked (couldn't eat the end one as they were burnt to a crisp) and the fries were cold. visited The Defector's Weld on 04 Mar 2017

Party of 6. 4 of us opted for the roast beef. Generally the food was good but it certainly wasn't hot. The gravy was stone cold. 2 had the burger and really enjoyed. Just need to sort out getting food to table hot. Would have helped if the cutlery had been delivered first instead of bringing food then going off for cutlery. visited The Defector's Weld on 26 Feb 2017

Area was nice and was great to have a bar to ourselves. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food could have been managed better, service was very staggered with some people not getting their food until after everyone had finished. I requested tables of 8-10 which was easily possible given the amount of room in the upstairs section. The room was set up with tables of max 4, which is not great for a networking event. This was not a huge issue as we stayed for drinks after but was bought up by a few of my colleagues. Overall evening was very enjoyable and would return. visited The Defector's Weld on 20 Feb 2017

There was a very pleasant atmosphere muted Christmas music in the background a glass of presecco or soft drink or beer on arrival, then we were shown to our table.

We booked a table for 5.30 to 9pm and an error occurred making the book to start at 9pm which meant our table was taken by another group, however, ?Sophie? I think was her name, rescued the situation by eventually getting to the group to agree to give us the table. Staff and Manager very attentive and solve problems quickly. Drinks reasonably priced, good snacks available at reasonable prices too and a good pub atmosphere. Recommend. kats visited The Defector's Weld on 22 Dec 2016

We really enjoyed the Sunday lunch. The general consensus being that the meals could have been slightly hotter but they were still delicious! Also, music being played whilst eating is great for atmospherics...but the choice of music was a little overpowering for a Sunday lunch. Overall, a great place.
