Stayed here for two nights in late December. The staff were super friendly and the guy who checked me in even carried my bag up the stairs (thanks!) My room was a ensuite female dorm with a TV and small kitchen area. The room was spacious but a little bit dark but otherwise clean and tidy. The location of this... More

we visited on 8/2/15 - big disappointment Two of us ordered the roast beef, they forgot the Yorkshire puddings although they are on the menu as was the horseradish they didn't have! The homemade apple crumble may have been made in someone's home but I'm pretty sure it wasn't theirs and there was only a thimble of carton-type to take... More

The location is very pretty, we went there two times in a week. The food is really good (beef is great) but I think it's a little bit expensive. The staff is great! You have to go there! We enjoyed it!

Excellent quality food. Fish pie was full of chunky salmon & cod. Creamy mash & a large side of veg. Burgers are enormous, but make sure you check what type of chips you're getting as some are thin french fries and some are chunky. Good wine selction & really good service. Can't wait to go back.

Great location walking distance to a lot of what London has to offer, plus good public transport links. Nice and clean rooms, good food in the pub & close by and beer. What more does a backpacker need??

I had some reservations about staying above a pub, but the location was fantastic being right near Paddington Station and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bathrooms/showers were not too bad. The breakfast was free and it was pretty tasty. I would recommend staying here. Good value.

Great location, very near Paddington station. Stayed as a couple in the only double room with private bathroom. Only negative was the bathroom was not an en suite but a separate locked room next door. The bathroom did not feel very clean but the bedroom was clean. Good value. Good heating. A lovely free breadfast was included and you get... More

Had a great time here at The Pride during a week-long stay in London. Rooms are clean and full of any amenities you could need, including luggage storage, outlets, and some of the rooms even have an electric kettle, microwave, and a full screen tv! Bathrooms were just fine for a communal setting. You get a key code for the... More

Stayed for three nights when over for an NFL game, went with friends and was looking for cheap and cheerful. Right next to the Paddington tube station and several restaurants. Safe location in a nice area but not many late bars around so would require taxis if heading for drinks past the tube hours (midnight usually). Good value and very... More

My daughter and I did not stay here but decided on this pub for dinner. So glad we did! My daughter had the fish and chips which she raved with a pint of cider and I ordered the steak and ale pie with a glass of red wine. The pie came with what looked like a big Yorkshire on top.... More
