I ate here instead of my hotel. The service was spot on and the food was spot on also. There is a large selection of food on offer which was great to see. There is free wifi, no tvs which is good just music which suits me. Its literally a 2 minute walk from Paddington station and almost opposite the...

I stumbled across The Pride of Paddington the morning after a big night out and was ready for a big feed. We were greeted by a lovely Australian girl by the name of Nicole who immediately showed us to a table. She recommended we order extra bacon and hash browns to absorb the remnants of the night before and she...

Instead of the usual fare of do-it-yourself hostel breakfast ingredients, I got a proper English breakfast served by cheerful staff. Thank you, that was nice. Now if the breakfast cook had a place to keep his pile of plates HOT that would even double the pleasure. The dorm was fine, toilet and shower clean. They ought to make very sure...

Visited with colleague from work. We looked tradtional pub and we got it. Took fish and chips and they were excellent. Fast service. The place seems to be popular for locals. If you are in Paddinton area and looking for traditional pub experience, the place will be very suitable

Dear Guest Thank you for your review of our hostel. It is so great to hear from our many travellers. Like most of the hostels in London we find it much more efficient if you book through our booking partners and/or our own webpage. This is dual protection for you and us. Check-in is sometimes a little slower, especially at...

Dear Happersnapper50 We appreciate you spending time to review our pub on Trip Advisor. I am disappointed that you felt our food let us down during your last visit.

A popular pub close to Paddington train station. The place has a nice atmosphere, with lots of guest, lively and polite staff and good food. Had the fish and chips (very good) and a couple of beers. Tried to go back a few days later, but the place was packed.

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. What a great way to start the day!!
