great beer, great atmosphere and great music and to top it all off a fantastic pub garden! what more do you want !

Fantastic pub - brewery, circus, two gardens but still with loads of charm. Food is good too.

The Aeronaut has everything - a brewery, a circus with DJ, quiz night, salsa, swing, great food, great garden, great discounts & great staff - best thing in Acton - hands down!

Great venue, large selection of drinks. There's always something to entertain, ping pong, the circus, comedy, bottomless brunch. Everyone I bring always loves it!

The Aeronaut is a cool pub with its own circus show, good music and it seems always busy. The only flaw is its location - it's just not very well publicised either.


Went here for a friend's birthday and my own birthday and even though it's bit of a mission for me from North London, it's 100% worth the trip every time!

The circus show was really fun and I laughed lots and smiled throughout, the food is also really delicious and after two summers it's still my favourite beer garden.


Went here for a friend's wedding party- what a cool place!  Cool funky inside bar, and a great outdoor space, which was decorated beautifully for the wedding (pic attached)  Would definitely visit again!

There was nice vibe both inside and outside - and although we were sharing the venue with the general public, our outside party still felt very intimate and private.  Great set up and venue overall seemed extremely accommodating - a good place if you're looking to hire a venue. 

The only thing I would say is the baby changing facility (which was also the disabled toilet) wasn't the most hygienic, and the toilet was blocked.


Visited Aeronaut first time last night but I am going to pay a visit again for sure! Such a nice pub! Huge inside space, and a circus area with a standing arena having circus/aerial/cabaret live performances every Friday & Saturday night. They have also a huge backyard, just perfect for the hot summer nights to have your drinks outdoor. Really nice place to have a fun night out with friends!

Best pub in London! Vibe, style, food, events, drinks - the whole package!! 10/10!!

Utterly unique - this place is a pub, a brewery and a circus all at once.
Love it.

Great all round pub. Real ale, amazing garden that's perfect all year round. And of course The Circus shows are out of this world! The food is also delicious!

What a venue. With the circus room, garden, great food and drink, definitely my favourite venue in west london!

Blinding circus show and the brewery has always got something going on the taps. They have even opened a new grassed beer garden- although no one really knows about it.

one of the best venues in acton - especially love their swing dance classes in the circus on a tuesday - o and the circus garden is perfect too :-)

I love this pub, its really spacious inside and has a massive garden too. The garden is divided into a Victorian pleasure garden so there are little huts to sit in which are all themed. There is a space inside that either has its trapeze/circus evenings in or by day ping pong tables. I really recommend this place for the food, drink, shows and atmosphere. Well worth a visit!


Without a doubt the best pub in Acton, it almost seems out of place where the Red Back Tavern used to be. A traditional pub on the one hand with a circus themed beer garden, its own brew of Acton Ale and an aeronautical theme (you get your cutlery from a hot air balloon basket and can admire one of the first flights on the ceiling), the pub also has its own circus at the weekend. For around a tenner you can treat yourself to a variety of cabaret acts sourced from all over the land - regulars may see the same acts occasionally but this really is a unique and fun experience. When the fun's over the private circus room opens into the main pub and turns into a dancefloor with DJs. Definitely worth a visit.
