I find this site the best resource for finding a good pub in any area of London.

'Paddington' covers a very wide area - from Paddington basin in the North (Little Venice), down to the Bayswater road, bordering Hyde Park. The best pubs in the area are the Victoria in Strathearn Place, (a TALF favourite), and the Bridge Inn, by the canal. The ones around Paddington station itself aren't quite up to the same standards, but the Sawyers Arms and Fountains Abbey are good old fashioned Victorian boozers.

How about the Maple Leaf in Covent Garden? :-)

As well as everybody else's suggestions, a short walk away across the Edgware Road is the Windsor Castle in Crawford Place. It's genuinely bonkers but very nice, and serves an interesting combination of fish & chips and Thai meals. Definitely worth a visit

I third the Victoria, I probably should stop bigging the place up as it's one of my own watering holes and I don't want it to get too busy! Adams suggestion of the Bridge House at Little Venice is also a cracker, in a quirky way. Both do decent food.

Wow! thanks for the pictures. We are arriving by train and I had no idea of the size of the Paddington terminal. We have never been to London before - I was imagining something more like we've seen in Paris where the in city stations are just underground tunnels with platforms to board the train.
