What's The Best Pub In Shepherd's Bush


Our monthly pub poll heads west, to the ever-changing area of Shepherd's Bush. Live round there? Drink round there? Then we want your opinions on the best places to go drinking.

The poll will be open for a few days, then we’ll tally up the winners and organise a pub crawl around the top few.

The leading pubs will make it into our Best Pubs in London microsite.

Here’s how to play:

  1. Let us know (in the comments below, on Facebook, or by tweeting #ShepherdsBushPub) your favourite pubs in the area.
  2. We’ll tally up the votes at the end of the week and publish the results.
  3. We’ll then arrange a pub crawl around the most popular choices. You’re welcome to join us.
  4. You can nominate anywhere that might generally be considered reasonable on a Shepherd's Bush pub crawl. We’re not going to define a boundary — just use common sense.
  5. By ‘pubs’, we’re using a shorthand — you can also vote for bars with some kind of pubbish character.
  6. You can nominate more than one place. All nominations count as one vote, whether you rank them or not. Likes on Facebook and retweets of someone else’s vote are also counted as new votes.
  7. Venues should be open to the public with no pre-booking, entry fee or membership required.

So, where shall we go?

Not sure Albertine is a pub at all, but it's certainly brilliant!

Dom Christophers

Andover Arms, The Havelock, Defector's Weld, the bar at the Bush Theatre..


The British Queen is just the place for Hipsters!


The Princess Victoria, once an IRA pub, now an overdone hipster gormet "pub"

Greg Wesson

Defector's Weld, Sindercombe Social - and depending on how far you consider "Shepherd's Bush" to extend - Princess Victoria, Smith's at Brook Green Hotel.


The Eagle and the Orchard Tavern on Askew Road. The Oak on Goldhawk Rd although maybe it thinks it is too posh to be a pub... The Crown and Sceptre on Melina Rd - a backstreet local boozer. Two gastros - the Princess Victoria and Queen Adelaide on the Uxbridge Rd.


The Defectors Weld is the one! #dw4life


Not exactly overwhelmed with options but Defector's Weld comes out on top I guess.


Brewdog! Best beer selection ever.
