One of a number of small units on the station concourse, this is a modern, single room pub with windows on two sides allowing good views of the comings and goings outside.

The pub has a laminate wood floor and pale green paintwork. High stools around the windows are joined by tables and chairs elsewhere and some leather bench seating around the walls. A plasma was at the rear built in to a unit displaying a selection of wine bottles either side. This was showing a news channel, but the volume was muted so it was not at all intrusive. I didn’t check the menu, but did notice a pile of pork pies on the counter and a board advertising some tapas style grazing dishes priced at three for a tenner.

Beers on tap were Tribute, Greene King IPA and Old Speckled Hen. The craft beer of the month was apparently Meantime London Smoked Porter. The solitary cider was Symonds Founder’s Reserve which was slightly disappointing – seeing as a large proportion of their clientele are going to be from the West Country, it seems odd to have picked a cider from Herefordshire.

A surprisingly decent bar on the main concourse at Paddington. Three cask ales, the Doombar I sampled was very good. Use your BITE card to get 20% off - making a pint of Doombar very good value for the location at £3.04!

Now transformed into The Beer House, selling 'craft keg' such as Meantime Saison de Nuit and Brewdog 5 a.m. Saint, plus Doom Bar and lots of interesting bottles.

Ideal location of course, decent beer and the Bite card discount certainly makes a difference!

Very hot in the summer however, air cooling system doesn't seem to do anything!

I do like this rather unusual pub if I happen to have some time at Paddington Station, see the other reviews. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that they will give you a discount if you have a BiTE card (not this site but google it and get one for 20% off food and drink at railway stations)
