Very friendly, good food!

I've been here a few times and every time they surprised me with their friendly attitude. Also a lot of nice beers on draft en good pubfood. Possible to sit outside.

Each time I'm in London I go there, which is about two to three times per year. I like the atmosphere in and outside the pub very much indeed. It's always really friendly and relaxing. Food is good as well. Had a pie and the Whitby prawns this time. Excellent. I can really recommend it.

The food here is terrible. Ordered bangers and mash. Got three awful sausages in a disgusting gravy. Complained. Argument. Then I was told: Well, you ate some. Explained to the server that the food was obviously cooked ahead of time and microwaved later. Argument. Said it didn't happen. Referred to the Italian female "manager," who didn't seem to have much... More

Found this place around the corner from the AirBNB we are staying at in London. Great spot, friendly and good pub food. Lots of local flavor!

This place, as you can't call it a pub, is an absolute disgrace to the many cheaper and frankly 100% better pubs in the area. If you want dirty beer that is over priced then this is your place! I ordered 2 beers and got 2 beers but they were half from the drip tray and half from the pump... More

Stopped in here for lunch while waiting for a train. Friendly service, so-so Greene King beer, nice food though. Sit inside or out side in a nice day.

A very good pub near Paddington Station. Stopped by for a drink and a nibble and the choices was excellent. The service behind the counter was excellent and the ever smiling lady behind the counter was charming and beautiful. The venue is large enough for a big group yet cosy enough i you want some quiet time. Very good and... More

Had a nice evening here, no hassle and reasonable prices. Clean toilets. Didn't eat here but it looked ok, will try on my next visit.

Located just along from Paddington Station. Rather a quaint old pub, with pleasant staff and wide range of both liquor and bar food. Has some outside seating where one can watch the world go by if good weather. Can get very busy in the evenings. Situated close to many hotels, so handy for a drink or somewhere to eat.
