Going to a gig at the Empire? Tired of trawling the shops at Westfield? YOU NEED THE DEFECTORS. By far and away the best pub in Shepherd's Bush. SB should be a haven of great pubs and bars, but it's sadly lacking. But this is why the Defectors is a beacon of light in the dark. Fun upstairs bar, great decor, and handily located between the two Shepherd's Bush tube stations to boot!


Came here with a friend after a concert at the O2 Empire nearby - great vibes. I had to point out the Sipsmith to the girl working the bar, but once I did, she made me a bang up G & T. It was busy but not crazy packed, and after a bit of standing, my friend and I were able to grab a table to hang out at. I'd definitely return after another show!
