NAME PILOT INN
ADDRESS 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 1930's 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 fanking wings with pyramid roofs. All of this has not stopped it closing in recent years (c2011) after a while as an Indian restaurant.

At 2014, It is still to let
