The Pilot has existed in Ceylon Place
In 1801, a part of the surrounding area was leased to a group of out-of-office politicians. These included William Pitt who had recently resigned as Prime Minister. Others were his elder brother, the Earl of Chatham, the Hon. Edward Crags and the Hon. John Eliot.
The Pilot is almost certainly named after Pitt who was described as "The pilot who weathered the storm".
