over the past 5 years the trade of pubs have fallen low but with the correct ingredients and passion, we can achieve the best ability from any establishment. Its ambition and to never to be defeated. To complete every task and focus on the right solution with repeat and complete process.
Focusing on the future of 2018 will be fast approaching and this is the pubs busiest trade year because of the world cup. Everybody will be getting together to connect with all nationalities of the world. This is the time to connect with the locals and families to show them the excellent service with professional standards we can offer.

i will try my best from help from punch tavern to get the lease for this premises with help form them we could make a brilliant business and great venue here for the community and locals and passing trade to make a great profitable business to save a great part of history of the heart of Paddington in London.

kind regards Mr Hudson

This is very much an estate local, sparsely attended and dominated by a pool table and enormous projector screen showing what, I know not as the lighting was too bright to make out any detail.

What few people were in, all seemed to be alone; there were no women. The barman ignored us and tended to his chiller cabinets instead. After a while we just walked out though we didn't miss much. There were four pumps without clips and municipal taps dispensing Kronenbore, Strongbow and John Smith's Extra Smooth - the otherwise mundane Porchester down the road knocks this place into a cocked hat; we won't be returning.

Just the one ale on in here - the seemingly ever present London Pride, at £2 a half. I was in early Wednesday evening, and saw no sign of food.

This pub was a fair bit nicer than I expected, although as has already been stated it does give the impression of being underground as little or no natural light gets in. It has a very narrow unprepossessing frontage, which belies the reasonably large interior. And I quite liked the interior. The most striking feature is the curved wood (or more likely wood effect) ceiling, with numerous rosettes set in squares. I've never seen anything quite like it, and I guess it must be some sort of tribute to the railway engineer Daniel Gooch perhaps, as suggested by the previous reviewer, representing the interior of a railway carriage? As you might expect, there's railway themed prints around the place.

The room's carpeted, and is furnished mainly with normal tables and chairs, although there are some tall stools at a shelf on one side. There's a pool table in the middle of the room, as well as a dartboard on one of the walls. At the back of the room there's a pre-2007 throwback - a sunken area with a few seats and a sign proclaiming it to be a non-smoking area.

This seems more like a genuine pub than its nearst neighbour, but I wonder if that's what people around here really want? It was empty at 7.0 PM on Wednesday, whereas the Porchester just down the road was very busy. But I know which pub I prefer, although I guess I must be in the minority. Shame. A better ale selection might help, although I accept you have to have a customer base that wants to drink real ale.
