Pilot Boat

Pub location on map


The Pilot Boat is a popular and well known community food pub located on the isle of Anglesey. Reputedly once a smithy, the Pilot Boat is nestled snugly off the main A5025 road, close to the beach and numerous caravan and camp sites. The bric-a-brac inside the pub is fascinating and is made up of hundreds of quirky signs and product adverts which will keep any customer entertained. The Pilot Boat benefits from a catering kitchen, dining area and large beer garden and children’s play area to the side of the pub. Robinsons are now seeking an experienced destination food operator, ideally welsh speaking who can continue to attract visitors and regulars alike to the pub through effective marketing; and someone who is willing to integrate themselves into the local community. 

Trading Accommodation

The Pilot Boat benefits from a catering kitchen, dining area and large beer garden and children’s play area to the side of the pub, and has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment including external decorations, play equipment and signage. Internally the pub remains traditional with some additional quirks such as the wooden bar being made from the prow of a boat which has now received a new bar top and servery. New wooden floors and carpet run throughout the pub and it includes a large lounge and decent catering kitchen.
