About Pergola Paddington

We’re back! After a whopping 179,000 of you came to see us at Pergola Paddington in 2017 we’re back for season TWO! Bringing the outside in, taking the inside out, and only improving on last summer’s smash hit run. Sandwiched between the tributary tracks that feed into Paddington Station and the once bustling waterways of the Basin, our Pergola returns as a sunny summery paradise - a secret hideaway in the heart of west London’s busiest business district. Set over two carefully curated and beautifully decorated floors, Pergola Paddington is the perfect place to while away those long summer days, and enjoy an unforgettable night with your favourite people.

Really impressed with the team at Pergola, really easy to organise and reassuring work to call and confirm the booking was a lovely touch.

The Pergola Paddington staff manager Anais was extremely rude and to be honest I wouldn’t recommend this place to anybody because of the lack of customer service given by her. The rest of the pergola staff and the food vendors were great and offered great service but it seems the Paddington management will need to be reviewed imminently before I can ever attend here again or let any friends/family/food blog followers step foot in this branch.

Came to see the view and there is none. Staff, food and drink fine but the Long in coming was to have a view of station, tracks and canal. Alas, none at all.

Amazing hospitality from initial enquiry, to booking and right though to the event itself. I had a fabulous time celebrating my Birthday. My only gripe was that it had to end at 11:30pm. When are you getting a later license lol?

Hello, I organised an office Party at the Pergola, it was great Tori and Henry were very helpful. Tori whent above and beyond the call of dutty, by helping me save money, we will definately be coming back. The food was great. Henry was of great help on the day, by bringing out the drinks in intervals - this helped to ensure the majority got 2 or more drinks. Henry has a great personailty easy to get on with, and really friendly. Drinks/bottles of wine were slightly expensive, perhaps if Pergola introduced drink tokens for event functions this would be useful, then I would be able to ensure everyone has at least had 2 drinks. Introduce an indoor private area. Thanks team Pergola Paddington

The food was really yummy and the place was very pretty. It was SO LOUD that we had to leave to save our throats. We couldn't hear each other speak. It was 6.30 and the music was just too much.

The venue was very bright and open. It is a brilliant use of space over the two floors. The staff are all helpful and friendly. Henry at the door was great and accommodating by allowing us to move our table to be in the sunshine. I was really impressed by the quality of food. Slightly on the pricey side but expected for this type of London bar. The paint and decor is starting to look a tad old but once they revamp it for the winter I am sure it will be great.

It was over booked and we were placed on a table with a group of girls who didn’t look happy we were there. You could barely hear the music it was that busy. We had one drink and swiftly left, gutted because we really had high hopes for pergola !

Henry was awesome, great guy. Atmosphere fab, even in the rain, but thought the food was rather expensive for small portions. Definitely visit again, my friends are already planning a follow up visit. Thanks we had a great evening! All the best. David.

I had a great time as did my friends and family. The staff were warm and welcoming and the atmosphere was great. Bar service was slow at times and think there could be a few more people just to ease the queue and it was a shame the lights by the booth seating didn’t work. But other than those minor things I will 100% be coming back!!

More food stalls would be great; perhaps also a smoking area downstairs to save people from having to go upstairs every time

I really like the atmosphere of the Pergolas - but they are not without fault - plastic glasses are hideous. The drinks are quite expensive (some of my wine was spilt by the barmaid and did not make it into the glass - yet there was no top up, service feels rushed). It wasn't the most comfortable place to be on a rainy, windy night...so keep it for sunny weekends!

Some of our party did not print off their free drink voucher, this was not a problem and 1 member of our group is pregnant, so a lovely member of staff when asked if he could make her a non-alcoholic drink produced a drink made by himself in a proper glass! It made her feel quite special. We all had a great time eating and drinking at the Pergola Paddington before boarding our train home!

Unfortunately there were a couple of issues. Fortunately the staff were able to resolve them pretty quickly. I'm not sure if I missed this when booking but it would be nice to chose where you want to sit... Upstairs, downstairs or daybeds etc. It makes a huge difference depending on your party. I feel we wouldn't have been so lucky on a busier evening.

The food and drink in Pergola was good, and the overall atmosphere was great. However, we booked a table for 2:30pm and when arrived a table that was already there earlier refused to leave and we had to first sit on a table 'out of the way' to which it started raining and we had to go and ask about our table again. Then we had to move to the end of someone elses table as the people on our table still refused to leave. Once a table finally became available to us, we only had an hour and a half to eat and drink properly before we had to leave. The staff seemed to do their best, and did provide us with a free bottle of prosecco, but there should be stricter rules for rude customers that refuse to leave. There were a number of security guards on site which didn't do anything.
