Defectors Weld is a restaurant in the trendy Shepherds Bush neighborhood of London. The door opens to the corner of a large room dominated by a three sided bar which has no seating. There are booths and tables on each of the three sides, and some sofas in the back near the rest room doors. Each of the sides of the bar has 15 taps, but some are repeated so that there are only perhaps 20 different beers, including 5 casks. The menu is typical English pub, with big portions; lots of people were eating. The barmaids were friendly and could speak of the beer, offering samples to help one decide on the next beer.

Confortable feeling pub with old archairs and sofas scattered around a square central bar. Good buzz about the place. Small outside courtyard full of smokers looks like the seedier parts of Amsterdam thanks to the red lighting. Service was adequate, although lacked any particular enthusiasm or even a smile. 5 casks (including a couole of London micros), along a smattering of common "craft" kegs (Lagunitas IPA, Licher Weisse, Sarnbrooks Pale, Black Isle Porter and a couple of Cotswold lagers are the ones I remember), plus about 25 bottles. Music was rather loud for conversation, especially given the fact we were there on a Tuesday afternoon. Overall though, probably the best option in the area if you’re looking for a decent pub to meet at before a gig at Shepherd’s Bush Empire - at least, until Brewdog Shepherds Bush opens in a few weeks time...

Nicely furbished place located right on Shepherd’s Bush. Low lighting, plush leather couches etc. Semi-hip clientele, bartenders with moustaches. There were about 5 cask beers available featuring the likes of Itchen Valley and Old Dairy. The keg stuff had some interesting options, but generally played it safe. There’s an array of bottles available, but you won’t find anything that you couldn’t find at 100 other pubs in London these days. Prices were fine. Overall, this area really lacks decent pubs, so it’s a welcomed addition. However, it’s nothing to really go out of the way for.

Fairly decent modern kit pub, beer range was above average and worth a visit if in the area.

A modern bar located in Shepherd’s Bush. The draft and bottle selection is way above average for this neck of the woods. The keg line-up includes a few taps of Meantime, Hogan cider and a variety of German and Czech brews. There are 4 hand pumps from UK micros, during this particular visit there was Brewdog, Redemption, Purity and Adnams on offer. Although the selection is not outstanding it is nice to see a bar that is steering away from endless taps of dodgy macro-brewed lager. Bottles on offer include Anchor, Brooklyn and Sierra Nevada, amongst others. A downside was that the music was fairly loud, but then again we did visit on a Friday pm! Introduces the masses to better beer.
