Pilot Inn, Burnaby Road
This pub must be a reference to the nearby Radford aerodrome. But it must also be to the Pilot in Much Park Street, which closed in c1938.
The Pilot opened in 1938. The building has been listed as a good example of a 1930s pub with a relatively unspoilt 'Moderne' interior. It is brick faced with a steeply pitched roof. The tall metal windows provide a vertical emphasis and it has half-octagonal flanking wings with pyramid roofs. All of this did not stop it closing in 2010 after a string of incidents requiring Police attention, but reopened in 2018 as a pub and Indian restaurant.|
