To begin with I wasn't so sure As I had my 12 year old daughter with me. But the food was great and we didn't have to wait ages. We just had pain is and chips. The bar staff were friendly and the toilets very clean. Very nice indeed.

I happened across this place while walking from paddington station because I happened to look down a side road. The menu is limited. I had the moo pie and it was delicious. They were out of mashed potatoes so I had fries but it was still really good. If you want a mixed drink they are limited but seemed to... More

The Alexander Fleming pub is a reasonable standard pub in the heart of Paddington. It's only a short walk from the station. It's small but has a friendly atmosphere. We only had a few drinks here, so didn't get to try the food but it was ok. The prices seem cheap and it's worth a return visit one time.

Great pub for price, seating and service.Thankfully one can almost always get a seat compared to some other pubs in the area. Good English rock on the playlist and always a friendly dog or two present to restore your faith in the world.

Quite surprisingly a lot of students were there when I visited which made lunch with my colleagues very interesting. Unfortunately at the time I don't think the kitchen were prepared for the amount of people that were there so our orders took over 30 minutes to come. The food was tasty, not a lot of flavor but decent enough for... More
