Good, reliable pub

This is a lovely pub with friendly staff doing very tasty food. Given its proximity to my hotel, it was a godsend. Not perfect, but no specific complaints, either. It was just a... read more

After a busy day we just wanted some simple pub grub in a lively place and this was near our hotel. It has all the sports on but plenty of space once the Wales v England rugby was finished. A good deal on wine, by two glasses and get the bottle meant it was only £13. A great pie and... More

Ok pub in Paddington. Staff was friendly, even if it was very busy that evening. They have a wide range of beers, including 4 cask ales. Unfortunately the cask ales comes from Greene King, not a very good brewery. I did not eat, but the food looked good, and should I end up back here, it would include food :)

Stayed a block away on our London visit and came here everyday for at least a pint. Staff was very friendly and atmosphere was pleasant. Great little local spot.

Great pub & real ale selection! But have no idea how to pour it??? Served like a Fosters! Tried to point it out but was fobbed off by bar staff!! This is a quick win! Don't be put off too much! Nice stop off!

It's one of the cosy pubs in London. Located close to Paddington station it's worth a visit. Pubfood is great, try the cheese macarony.... Nice beer choice as well and the outside smokingplace is heated with heating lamps. I would go again, a nice place to hang around

I visited The Sawyers Arms for a quick pint while walking by. You can reach the property just a block away from Paddington Station. The staff members were extremely friendly and gave recommendations for beers to taste. The beer selection in pumps is versatile. The pub was very crowded even in Wednesday evening. When ordering food, please take note on... More

Food took 45 minutes to arrive. Steak was dry, fries were soggy, salad consisted of a few (not fresh) green leaves and a small tomato. They forgot to include the sauce that goes with the steak. With the slow service we didn't even bother trying to ask for it as it likely would have arrived after we had already finished.

Thank Tom J
