From table bookings to whole venue hires, The Pilot is the perfect venue for parties, weddings or just a get together with friends. We can also provide space for business meetings and working lunches, with an HDMI flat screen connection available. 

Our private Wellesley Room is particularly popular, please get in touch to check availability.

Wellesley Room

The Wellesley Room is a versatile space which works well for many different styles of events and different sizes of parties. The room can hold up to 45 guests for a sit down meal and has enough room for 60-80 for a finger food and drinks function, but is also cosy enough for a more intimate meeting or private dining experience  – especially when we fire up the log burner. 

We offer different packages for events in the Wellesley Room; please feel free to contact us to see our buffet, BBQ, children’s parties and meetings packages.

We also have a private VIP garden area available to the guests of The Wellesley Room; with access to our great BBQ which is available for private hire for your function.
