This was our first pub stop after arriving in London. The location was close to Paddington and our flat rental. The fish and chips were very good. Nice selection of ales. The service was very friendly and prompt. Reasonable prices. If I lived in the area this would probably be a place I would visit frequently.

Stayed just up the road from here last week and this place became out temporary local. Really friendly bar staff and absolutely amazing food - particularly the massive breakfast. Busy outside but perfect place to sit and just watch the world go by xx

Great location, only 1 block from the tube. Stopped there our first night in London and had the Steak & Ale Pie which was very good. Good selection of beers and ales and the staff will help you choose if you are unfamiliar with the brands. Thought so much of the place that we also ate there later in our... More

We had fish and chips, hamburger, steak and onions sand which and the ploughmans sandwich. The fish was fresh and tasty. The chips were undercooked. The hamburger was dry and somewhat flavorless. The steak was over cooked and tough, but the flavor profile was very good. Overall, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was pretty good, but... More

This is a nice pub where I stopped in for some fish and chips and a pint. The food was excellent and arrived quickly, but took a while to get someone to take my order and bring the bill. Nice cozy atmosphere and lots of regulars seem to appear. Wide selection of beer choices.

I stopped here for a quick supper before catching a train, the place is located right by the train station. From ordering to service my meal took less than ten minutes, this showed in the plate of food I was served. I ordered a steak and ale pie with mash. I received a dollop of mash, lots of well cooked... More

Dirty venue, awful food. Shame as its a nice traditional pub in a great location. There is a great English bar maid though, she's the only one who seems to know what she's doing! Seems disorganised and chaotic, with a lot of the staff quite argumentative with customers.

Steve C, Director of Sales at The Pride of Paddington, responded to this review

Dear Vws75 I am very saddened to hear that you were disappointed at your last visit to our pub. I am trying to understand what you mean by dirty, as the venue is cleaned every morning and our team check the toilets on the hour every hour. We have also just recently given the place a bit of a sparkle... More

Dropped into The Pride of Paddington to watch the football on a Friday night. The place was really busy but the staff handled it without an issue. I ordered a chicken Parma for dinner and it was delicious. Must have been made in house as its steps above the usual frozen rubbish similar pubs serve up. Ample seating outside was... More

Nice enough ok traditional looking pub in Paddington to have a pint but don't order a Mojito as it was awful with a packet of undissolved sugar granules in the bottom! Fun staff though! Has accommodation with cooked breakfast if you want to stay over but no idea what that's like but it is very close to the station so... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional English pub beautifully refurbed for 2011. Now offering double, twin, and shared 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms and some female only rooms for the girls to have exclusively. Close to all tourist attractions and not forgetting Hyde Park, Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Portobello markets. Paddington station (Heathrow Express) is two minutes away and there are four Underground rail stations all within a few minutes walk. Getting around London couldn't be easier. Add to that a major hub for London buses and this is the place to base all your London sightseeing in. We pride ourselves on the safe, clean and fun environment we provide for all our guests at great value for money. Our Traditional pub (downstairs from the hostel) serves excellent freshly cooked food which you can get at a discounted rate, as our guest, using the free book of vouchers issued to you on arrival. The free breakfast is great, no boring continental breakfast - a full cooked English breakfast served down in the bar every day from 8:00-10:00am and you can get a free juice or tea/coffee with that as well.
