Probably the worst fish and chips I have every had! Fish was not fresh and tasted like it's just come out of the microwave, chips were very salts and the mushy peas... well you know they come straight out of a can! Don't waste your time.

I was there on the weekend. Well the atmosphere is very nice, good music, kind service... The food wasn't particularly good, it was OK. The waitress didn't know which vegetarian dish to recommend and I had a dish that was just rice with mushrooms.... Very dull. My partner had the roast beef and it wasn't very tasty. Traditional British cuisine......

Has a great bar, good staff, good location one block away from the subway (a bit far if you are planning on walking everywhere, though possible - i did it). Bedrooms were big, not so comfortable pillows, but very clean and acceptable bathrooms. GREAT breakfast.

Stopped off for a drink before walking back to Kensington. Ok. Toilets old and shabby. Tables inside look dirty. Drink ok but charged for using card. Food prices are expensive for the surroundings. Not on list to visit again.

Dear Teresa D Thank you for your review albeit I think it a bit unfair to give us just 1*. I have been in 100's of pubs in London and I know that we are definitely not a 1* pub. Yes we have tried to keep the traditional pub feel, yes we give a traditional pub welcome, yes our menu...

I came here for 2 night stays because it was mentioned to offered "very good breakfast". And it is true! the traditional english breakfast is reallly, really tasty. For the hostel: it is spacious, clean, and the toilet is frequently cleaned. The location is just strategic. The pub is good as well. I tried the beer and fish& chips, both...

I stayed here for a week, the staff were friendly, the food was okay and it was a great location for seeing London (3 minute walk to train station)! BUT the beds were extremely uncomfortable, there were no proper utensils or cutlery for the kitchenette (just a lot of knives and salad bowls!) and also nothing to clean up with....

We stayed in Paddington in 08/08 simply because of Hyde Park & the starting pt. for a tour, & found The Pride quite by accident. Found the food, drink & service excellent. Rugby songs being sung on the patio cemented our affection for this place. The big reason we stayed again in Paddington is The Pride. They didn't disappoint. Love...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional English pub beautifully refurbed for 2011. Now offering double, twin, and shared 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms and some female only rooms for the girls to have exclusively. Close to all tourist attractions and not forgetting Hyde Park, Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Portobello markets. Paddington station (Heathrow Express) is two minutes away and there are four Underground rail stations all within a few minutes walk. Getting around London couldn't be easier. Add to that a major hub for London buses and this is the place to base all your London sightseeing in. We pride ourselves on the safe, clean and fun environment we provide for all our guests at great value for money. Our Traditional pub (downstairs from the hostel) serves excellent freshly cooked food which you can get at a discounted rate, as our guest, using the free book of vouchers issued to you on arrival. The free breakfast is great, no boring continental breakfast - a full cooked English breakfast served down in the bar every day from 8:00-10:00am and you can get a free juice or tea/coffee with that as well. What a great way to start the day!!
