Went for a slightly late lunch 2.pm. tried the burger asked for it to be well done, however I didn't mean to burn the bun and chips (or fries as they are now called. I had to remind the waitress that I ordered a orange juice this was about 5-6 minutes AFTER she laid my table, and even then didn't... More

During our stay in teh area we tried most of the local restaurants and I think this was our favourite. We went in on a Friday evening, and were able to get a table for 5 without waiting which was a surprise given the after work crowd at the bar. Only downside was they didn't have a childrens menu, but... More

I took my team here for a lunch to welcome a new starter. I appreciate we were a large group (15 people) and not all had ordered in advance. However the restaurant was not busy, we were seated on time at 12.30, and ordered by 12.45. So for the food to arrive almost 1 hour later (13.40) I feel is... More

Just five minutes from walk from Paddington and overlooking the Grand Union Canal, Smith's is a pleasant spot to watch the world go buy. It was still warm enough to sit outside on the terrace. We bought a bottle of reasonably priced wine as London prices go and also had a plate of charcuterie at a reasonable price compared to... More

Went for lunch at this superb location and very spacious layout which is right against the canal at Sheldon Square and just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Paddington Station. It is a great location for people watching while relaxing sipping a drink or eating. It has outside seating in the warmer weather and has a... More

My colleague had well cooked sea bass It's all freshly prepared simple but really ingredients This location is perfect for Paddington station and a great location... More

Being close to our offices, I visited this place with colleagues and clients a few times. Overall, ok for a decent lunch, though nothing special. Service is usually very slow. The thing that is going for this place is that it is a relatively better option in the Sheldon Sq area.
