I still regard this pub as one the best in this tourist heavy part of London. Nice interior, sport on several televisions, reasonable food. But an annoyance: when I checked my diary after returning to Oz I found their curious pricing policy was again on display. A pint of Pride on my first visit was 4.35, and the second, a few days later, was 4.55, Of course by next year I'll have forgotten about it, and line up to be ripped off again.

One of the better pubs in the Paddington rail & tourist hotel conglomeration. I'm betting 95% of the customers are tourists, given the inane questions they ask, and the variable prices charged: I drank London Pride on 3 visits over a 4 week period & was charged 3 different prices. Didn't notice until I collated my diary after returning to Australia. This is not a big complaint as it was only a few pence and I enjoyed each one, but it is a bit cheeky. Lovely interior, big screens for sport, usual pub menu and a few seats outside if you enjoy vehicle exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke & beggars.

Thought I would try this as an alternative to the Mad Bishop and Bear at Paddington, as I had time to wander down the road before my train.

Deceptively big pub, because as well as the largish downstairs area (which had TVs showing Sky Sports when I went in) there is loads more seating upstairs too.

Decent selection of ales on tap, including a couple from Shepherd Neame. I went for the guest instead (forget the name) which was decent enough, but at £4.14 a pint, even more expensive than the station pub.

Was busy enough mid-afternoon on a Friday and the food smelt decent, but while I enjoyed my pint, think I will stick to the Fuller's place at Paddington instead.

Visited on Monday night. Not a bad pub from the Taylor Walker chain. Five ales and a real cider. Personally had a pint of Red Squirrell Redwood IPA which was very good. They also give a discount to CAMRA members. Will be back.

Not a bad pub. Attentive staff. Enjoyed a couple of pints of Portobello Gold. Food was fine.
Something of an oasis in a generally depressing 'pub' wasteland.
