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.

Place is fun but very understaffed in the bar and food outlets. Waited ages for food and queued for a long time at the bar. Free drink was undrinkable and not what was advertised.

We booked a table for five people and were put on a table with another group of 4 people. We were told that the table sat 10 people. I can understand this if it was a table of 10 people who all knew each other, but it was quite awkward having two very talkative groups of strangers sitting cheek to jowl with each other with no room to spread out. A member of staff eventually managed to move the other group to a different table, but only after we persisted.

I made a large reservation of circa 30 people and was extremely disappointed with how the evening played out. I picked pergola as a venue partly because it was open until midnight and was shocked to find that at 10.15, we were asked to leave our tables and told that it was closing. The entire downstairs was asked to go upstairs and finish their which was chaotic as there was no room. People weren’t allowed leave for a cigarette and the bouncers said it was time to go. All of the people I had invited were disappointed and I was shocked. It definitely ruined the evening and I would not recommend Pergola to anyone as a result.

Very slow service having to wait 20/30 minutes for food. The security at the end of the evening are very rude and aggressive when telling everyone they have to leave.

We had a great day. Food was very good and the area we had booked was great for a bigger crowd. I would say that I had to ask the staff to clear our area multiple times during the day and cleared a few glasses myself as we had a large group. This was frustrating but we still had a great time.

We had booked a table as well as a drinks package. When we arrived we had to wait about 10 minutes for our table to be cleaned and we were also given unstable wooden chairs to sit on as opposed to the normal benches. We then had to wait a further 25 minutes until our bottles of Prosecco came out which is not what you expect when you have pre ordered. Once our drinks arrived we had a great evening and the atmosphere was great!

We were placed on a table, went to order at the bar, came back and another group had been placed at the same table - seemed a bit unorganised.

We had a really great time on Saturday. After a few seating issues which were quickly resolved by the gorgeous Maria, we eventually were placed at a table. Thank you so much Maria for your help, you were wonderful!! The atmosphere was great, the bar staff were friendly and fabulous. We have been to other popular bars in London and found them pretentious but your staff were so friendly and accommodating. We will absolutely be back!

From point of ordering food at Babek brothers it tooka further 40muns before my food was ready to collect which is outrageous for a fast food meal for 1. The rest of my group had finished eating their meals long before that! When asking for updates the Babek staff were so rude. In the end the chef deliberately gavdme cold food and put in fig jam which i had specifically requested to not be included and wasclearly written on my food reciept so i wasnt even able toenjoy it after allthat, it had to go straight in the bin. Atno point did they even apologise!

Great venue. Let down by false advertising and bar staff consistently over charging. Website states happy hour is 4pm-7pm on Thursday but actually ended before 6pm

We were very pleased with our group booking. Our guests loved the variety of food and drink options! Both the drinks and food were delicious! The venue is loud so keep that in mind when booking but other then that it was perfect!

Staff seemed uninterested in welcoming us, left to bring the drinks I had pre-paid and never came back. The table I’d booked was also out in the open in a dead spot of Pergola, soaking wet from the rain. Awful reservation system when I wasn’t made aware of this ahead of the booking, given this was for an important event.

Always enjoy visiting Pergola. Great atmosphere with plenty of seats and can easily accommodate large groups. Was a bit disappointed that not all of the food stalls were open, and then didn’t open when they were due to. But that didn’t ruin our time at all, highly recommend.

Several of the food outlets were closed when we visited Pergola Paddington, and our gluten-free friends were not able to eat anything. Also it was very cold, and even though there were loads (over 10 free tables) of free spaces, we were told we were not allowed to move to be further in and more sheltered from the wind. A group of people arrived after us without a reservation and were seated in a less windy spot! If it had been full, or bright sunshine, it wouldn't have mattered - but it was kind of bizarre that we were told no.
