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.

Really good atmosphere and beers. Only downside was we had a bit of a challenge with the bouncers when trying to get friends in. They said it was full inside even though there were 10+ spaces free on our table. visited The Defector's Weld on 24 Mar 2017

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. The service was very good and the Christmas dinner was really tasty, well cooked and there was plenty of it.. It was our first time here and we will certainly be returning. visited The Defector's Weld on 25 Dec 2016

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. Will definitely book again. visited The Defector's Weld on 30 Oct 2016
