Went for dinner to Four in Hand with high hopes after several pleasant dinners under the former owner and of course being a long term fan of Guillaume. The first thing that struck us was the NOISE inside the dining room, people yelling at each other so you could hear what was said 4 tables away. Why do people do... More

Decibels at max inaudible even waiter had to shout specials. Several near us asked for the bill before finishing dinner. Duck was all fat and gristle. Such a shame as we used to love Guillaume's style and food Now just a noisy noise. #avoid never again

Really disappointed. I had the prawn entree. Very bland. Came with almond and a little pepper. Main was Mulloway. Very, very greasy and flavorless. Peach Melba to end the meal. Again, not so good. Would not go back. Interesting, that we were the only customers in the restaurant. Tells a lot about the place.

I just found out that guillaume took over four in hand. My husband decided to take me to four in hand for my birthday when it was still owned by Colin Fassnidge. The location is weird but don't judge a book by its cover, the food was bang on. It was a gastronomical experience with a country comfort food twist... More

Rarely would you return to a restaurant largely due to the qualities of the service team, however this is one such place. This eatery is supported by a brilliant team of caring, happy, capable people assisting and making your stay with them a warm and enjoyable experience. First class professionals! Food was nice and didn't dissappoint ... perhaps the lamb... More

Absolutely loved this restaurant. The pub area is really nice for drinks but make sure to move to the dining room for a great meal. We enjoyed our quails which were perfectly cooked and the chocolate dessert was amazing

For four of us having a quick catch up it was ok but the food is pretty average and with to many tv's blaring out sports channels it won't please everyone

The staff were polished, professional and charming. Just right. We thought the food was good and well presented, but not outstanding. We wanted to order a bottle of red wine to follow our cocktails. The list was laid out in the European manner of regions and the producers were not named. Most of the wine was young and, for a... More

I really love this pub and it's still my favourite pub in Paddington. However, I believe the food is quite poor for the standard I expect it to be given the pedigree of the team behind the catering. The pub staff are wonderful, very accommodating and friendly. The wine list is very good too. We had the Sunday Roast and... More
