Came here to watch some football and have a Sunday Roast. Can't complain! The food was good and the beers were good. The service was good. It took a while to find a table, but once we did we stayed there for the rest of the night. Will definitely return!

A restaurant conveniently located near paddington station. Good variety of mains, finger food and beer. A very lively pub atmosphere. The fish & chips is a really generous serving.

It was down the street from my hotel in Paddington. Food was prepared well and service was efficient even if it was busy. A good cross section of customers from after work lads to families. No complaints on the service or the offerings.

He kicked us out under the reason the place is not opened, but all tables were occupied. The owner screamed we should leave "because he hays so and it's his business, so he can do whatever he pleases". Incredibly rude to talk so bad to three women. Definitely we will never go there again!

Among thousands of pubs in the city, this one gets a tip of the cap. The beer and cider selections are plentiful and worthy of note. The service at the bar (where you order all food and drink - food coming by server once it is ready) is fast and friendly. The menu is typical pub fare, though the supper... More

After a busy day we just wanted some simple pub grub in a lively place and this was near our hotel. It has all the sports on but plenty of space once the Wales v England rugby was finished. A good deal on wine, by two glasses and get the bottle meant it was only £13. A great pie and... More

This is a lovely pub with friendly staff doing very tasty food. Given its proximity to my hotel, it was a godsend. Not perfect, but no specific complaints, either. It was just a really nice option on days when I couldn't think of anywhere else to go.

Ok pub in Paddington. Staff was friendly, even if it was very busy that evening. They have a wide range of beers, including 4 cask ales. Unfortunately the cask ales comes from Greene King, not a very good brewery. I did not eat, but the food looked good, and should I end up back here, it would include food :)

Stayed a block away on our London visit and came here everyday for at least a pint. Staff was very friendly and atmosphere was pleasant. Great little local spot.
