Taylor Walker branded GK outlet. A pretty basic knocked-through interior with two rooms still just about discernible with a further seating area a couple of steps beyond and down. The front bar has wallpapered portraits of long-forgotten Georgians, laminate flooring and maroon walls. Four ales on; GK IPA, GK London Glory, Black Sheep and Twickenham Spring. I tried a half of the latter which was ostensibly fine but had a GK twang to it and clocked-in at over 4 quid when rounded-up from a half. Staff were noticeably poor. Paddington doesn’t have too much in the way of decent pubs near the station but I’d say this one really isn’t worth the bother.

Sporting a lot of Greene King insignia on the outside,this long thin interior has a corporate feel with menus on every table.There is seating on both sides of the entrance door,the bar beyond has two sections with the 4 handpumps on the first part with two long wall mounted high bench seating areas,before opening out down some steps into a high ceiling back room,with mirrors down one side,and a lower pool table area to the right.This back area was quiet ,and would be a good place to watch Sky Sports peacefully,although it was on mute on my afternoon visit.
Besides the usual GK dross (IPA and London Gold) two guests are carried ,on my trip Black Sheep Bitter and a reasonable Twickenham Wolf of the Woods.Craft keg beers available.
It's clean and tidy ,with a level of interest as you walk along the thin interior ,functional but rather dull.

A long thin pub, a sign says it's the longest in London. owned by Taylor Walker there are two counters, the front one has four pulls serving Belhaven, Greene King (London's Glory) and a beer from Twickenham which was fine. There is also a range of ctaft kegs. Further back than the second counter are some steps leading down to a large sitting area which was full of tourists on my visit.
