Do you remember the day when pub entertainment involved a pack of cards behind the bar? We do! You will be very pleased to know at Melksham’s The Pilot pub it has moved on a fair bit with a selection of activities to keep you coming back time and time again!

We have both Sky Sports and BT Sports throughout The Pilot and show all the football, rugby and other sports. With one of the screens a whopping 60″ you really don’t have to worry about getting a ‘good spot’ because every ‘spot’ is a good one. See the list below for the sports we will be showing at The Pilot.

Every Saturday we have live music with the best of the local, and slightly further afield, music scene plus when we really cannot find an excuse (sorry reason!) to say no we have Open Mic or Karaoke – oh and we really have had many a Britain’s Got Talent moments!
