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 The Pilot 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 and show all football and rugby matches, plus other sports. With one of the screens boasting a whopping 60 inches, you really don’t have to worry about getting a ‘good spot’ because every ‘spot’ is a good one!

We also have live music every Saturday with the best of the local, and slightly further afield, music scene. Plus, when we really cannot find an excuse to say no, we have Open Mic or Karaoke. We really have had many a ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ moments!

Please see below for further details of our regular features, details of our upcoming bands and the sports that will be showing at The Pilot.

Our craft beer changes every two months, giving you the chance to try a new brew that will suit the season we are in. Moving into summer our next Craft ale is Six Fingers.

At  4.1% ABV  Six fingers is a  wheaty trappist style brew. Floral, and fruity with a cheeky spicy kick this ale is perfect for enjoying with friends on a warm summers evening.

And why 6 fingers ? because Moles have polydactyl forepaws; each has an extra thumb (also known as a prepollex) next to the regular thumb! Also proving that you learn something new every day !!
