For evening drinks, I chose the newly opened Pergola at Paddington. I read some good reviews and the pictures on Google looked quite promising but unfortunately it was disappointing.
The place looks rather posh and cute on the pictures but it is actually quite a simple setup with not much of a fuzz around the drinks or the service. The complementary drink was one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted and the rest of our order was okay but definitely expensive. The food court is all right, but small portions and – just like with the drinks – higher than average prices for the amount you are served.
I even forgot to take a picture of the place, so for your reference, I saved one from their website. I really don’t recommend this place but to be fair, London is a tough place to exist if you are just average and expensive. There are so many alternatives, that it’s just really not worth spending our time and money on anything else than exceptional! And this place is not exceptional. At least not for me.
