Graham Coombs left this review about The Draft House Paddington

Although close to Edgware Road tube station, this pub is hidden inside the office development along with various other chain restaurants etc which face the end of Paddington Basin. Well described by Malden man below, the esoterically-decorated interior seems to stretch off for a long way into the pizza restaurant beyond, but the areas around the bar are fair enough. Beers from the craft end of the market, with draught ales from Siren and Five Points on offer at time of visit. Note that one seems to be available at £2.90 each day. A useful modern addition to the disappearing pubs in the vicinity. One word of warning: they seem to like serving ales in dimple glasses with a massive head, so make sure to ask for a top-up.

The latest venture for the Draft House chain sitting in a modern building at the very end of Paddington Basin. A typical for the brand modern interior, this is a large site which meanders around forming connecting but different areas referred to as "islands", each with their own imaginary map on a nearby wall. Some are illuminated using neon style lighting, Malt Landing, Pizza Heights, Saison Isles.
I sat in the front bar area, not sure what this was called, full height windows give views over the basin and the new developments springing up, seating at mustard coloured benches with low backs. Other seating at old canteen style chairs.
Lots of beer choices of all kinds, there are daily menus on the tables, lots of kegs, fridges contain bottles and cans, some at eye-widening prices. As usual I stick with the cask options, three on, Sambrook's Battersea Rye (discounted on the day), Siren Yulu and Five Points Brickfield Brown. Beers available in all variants of regular quantity from thirds to a pint. Food centered mainly on pizze but burgers etc available too.
Not for the traditionalist I suppose but you are most likely to get a decent beer here.
