Always a great time at the Paddington, whether in a group or just for two. I might try something else apart from the roast chicken next time, but it's too hard to pass up!

Another memorable meal, superb chicken and seafood. Every neighbourhood needs a pub like this. Special thanks to warm super friendly team thanks James, Jack and Nick!

Great atmosphere but expensive for chicken and chips. Having to pay extra for a small serve of gravy would suggest this is all about profit as opposed to customer experience

Good casual atmosphere but quite noisy. Chicken could have been less dry.
