Stopped in for a quick drink following a long walk The location is convenient. The staff pleasant . Outdoor seating looked nice but I chose to seat very comfortably indoors

Staff very unwelcoming despite having a happy sign on the door. Complaints from the grey haired man at the bar as my dog barked!!! Totally not dog friendly. Staff in dirty aprons. Menu less than appealing for a traditional pub and the food we saw...More

Well done Fuller's and manager Stuart and your delightful team for creating a truly traditional London Pub experience in one of the city's densest tourist spots. The food is great, the pint of Honey Dew just right and the welcome unbeatable. As a soon-to-be local,...More

Cracking Pub with friendly Staff, good food and an excellent range of beers. Worth the short walk to get away from Paddington Station and it's overpriced food and drink 'Outlets' Try the Swan, you won't be disappointed.

A fantastic pub. Good food, great choice of drinks and lovely staff. Typical London Pub feel and good service and welcome. Good music events, especially Sunday afternoon

Good plain food with excellent service. The staff here worked so quickly and efficiently that it never felt busy though it was. Not a huge menu but there was something for everyone.

Busy pub with great live music, traditional pub food (chicken tikka masala £12 with rice and naan was good), 4 real ales (all Fullers), good coffee, wine and not a bad spirits selection. Be prepared to wait if you want food. Great outdoor area
