Booked to have food and drinks at Pergold Paddington with my family in a bubble. Due to COVID rules with London in tier two we thought we should try and sit outside even though we could sit inside. But on the day the weather was terrible so they allowed us to sit inside but on two different tables. We didn't argue but we were disappointed and confused. Then looking around at other tables who were clearly not social distancing and clearly from different households (so we assume in a bubble) we couldn't work out why we had to sit separately. After many lengthy, annoying chats with managers they allowed us to sit together. What really cheesed us off the most was they waited until we had spent (a lot of) money on food and drinks before splitting us up. Seemed like a scam.
The inside was nicely decorated with flowers (fake) so good for pictures and it was quite warm despite it being October. Toilets were clean and never full. We ordered a giant prosecco, pitcher of beer and food from the three vendors. I had a Katsu Curry which was really nice but did have a wee kick.
Outside was blustery and cold so we didn't stay long.
Overall wouldn't come back again until the COVID fiasco is over. And even then I'd be wary. But there are probably nicer places to go.
