Have come in here for time to time over the years but yesterday discovered it has been given a 'makeover' and is rebranded as '146' resulting in it completely losing the plot. Given that this was 'Thirsty Thursday' in London town - they had put...More

Was stuck due to train delays at Paddington. Made the mistake of coming in here. It was quiet yet it still took 15 minutes to get served. Then the charmless bar staff added 10% service onto my pint of lager - really? All soundtracked with...More

This bar is attached to the Hilton Paddington, it is not an asset to the property. I looks like a disco lounge with cheesy lights and raised platform with tables that sit too low. Menu is light, bar is fully stocked but the bar tender...More

I'm not sure if the steam bar is part of the Hilton or not. It is accessed through the Hilton lobby. The drinks are ok, I found the place a bit loud, but others call that lively.

Non existant service, poor attitude. Food well presented but expensive and minimal. Staff should spend more time on the customer service and less time chatting amongst themselves. A smile can go a long way and not not just at the end when expecting a tip....More

The quality of drinks is pretty good but the staff are preoccupied with talking between themselves. They are unobservant and unresponsive. One would not want to be in a hurry.

The food was poor, deep fried nonsense. The staff service was slow despite the restaurant being completely empty, and to top it all off we saw mice running around on the floor a few tables down from us. Advise to steer clear of this one.
