Beautiful setting especially in summer
Two for one offer on cocktails, good food, great atmosphere and fantastic, friendly service. This is what Smith's Bar & Grill has on offer. The place tends to get busy so book a table in advance. There are tables indoor and outdoor hence if the weather is propitious you can enjoy the evening out sitting by the canal, drinking Rum Punch and enjoying conversation with friends. More...
Very good grill. Lambchop T-bone and fish are highly recommend.
Hyggeligt sted med udsigt ud over kanalen og til husbådene
Very helpful and attentive staff
Very good service!!
Lovely wine bar beside the canal walking distance from my train. Great place to meet my family. Food looked good too but we didn't eat. No rip off for soda water like some moneygrabber places. Generally prices good for London. Won't be my regular as I don't live in London but I WILL drink here again More...
Excellent. Many return visits.
The ambience is always nice and so is the food. Quite a relaxing time my friends and I had.

Nice terrace - food was great
Quality food and a great atmosphere. Perfectly situated on the water
Nice place by the canal. Food is great
Nice place next to canal for a beer but don't expect any change from a tenner for two pints
Loved the Portabello mushroom and halloumi burger. Great with a Guinness!
London prices but a lively place
Only had a drink. But seemed ok. Gets busy.
Mye liv her på en fredagskveld. God stemning og god mat.
Great selection of drinks and delicious food in a cool location by the canal
Come here for lunch almost everyday, love the service and range of food and drinks provided.
Good food and not over priced
Delicious food and fabulous service. Try the muscadet, delicious.
Good, no fuss Mexican joint. Would go back again!
아주 최고의 음식점
Чудовий паб, смачні страви, проте і ціни відповідні. Персонал привітний, допомагає, пояснює меню.

Very nice place and the fish was fantastic
Good quality food and excellent, pleasant service. The cushioned seats are a bit low for the tables to dine on, but otherwise everything else was very good.
Restaurant andd bar and ambience 4 stars, food and drinks 4 stars. Only issue I had , I'm 6' 4", and I sat in the restaurant along a very comfortable wall bench sofa.. however this was so low compared to the tables.. take 2 cushions to g wet the right eating height. But a really nice place with nice people. Great area and great food and drink. please sort your seating out... very uncomfortable... More...
Great location. Waiting staff from Sicily with whom you can have a sensible conversation about food. Cold beer from Italia, very attentive service, great fresh mint tea. Table tennis downstairs, magic.
Great snacks and a very enjoyable view of the cancel. Would recommend for a spot of lunch or casual dinner. Staff are extremely busy, and sometimes do forget to come and see if all is well.

Wow! excellent food
This is one what would call an elegant place. The hostess was great and very helpful . And the Sunday roast was excellent. This is a must visit place while in Paddington. More...
Drinks were good and the starters were quite nice.
We had a birthday party there. Very helpful staff, delicious food and a great space for private events. There is a lift which is convenient for older people as a party space is in a basement
10 of us came here on a Saturday evening for dinner. Everyone was happy with their food. I had the Plaice Fillets with spring vegetables and a side of new potatoes. The plaice was cooked just right, although perhaps on the salty side. The potatoes were very nice, as were my friend’s chips. The staff were all very pleasant and professional, particularly the manager, who wouldn’t have been out of place in a high end restaurant. They have a good selection of beer, especially Mahou which is a rare find in London but unfortunately they were out that night. Overall it was a really good night and we were well looked after. Will come back to try the brunch. My only suggestion would be for them to change the tables/seating as once we sat down, we all notice that the table was very high / the seats were very low, so we felt dwarfed by the table. More...
Beef was tender and juicy. Will recommend and visit again. Service was good. Price was tad expensive but happy to pay this amount.
Good place for eating and chilling!
The food was good, the drinks uninspired.
Paseando por Pequeña Venecia encontramos este fantástico sitio donde comer, si todavía no has comido el típico fish and chips este es un buen sitio donde tomarlo. El servicio es excelente, camareros italianos y españoles. Te aconsejan muy bien (sobre todo en cervezas locales). El trato es agradable y la relación calidad precio es buena. Como está cerca de edificios de oficinas suele haber más gente entre semana que los fines de semana. More...
Amazing lunch! I ordered “beef tartar”, “pork belly” and cream caramel...really good. And thanks to Emilio, he took care about our table and he was been really friendly and gentle. We will come back for sure!
A perfect place to go! Nice location, good environment, perfect service and really delicious food. Great quality. We are willing to repeat! Congratulations.
lovely food and hosts.
Very spacious, plenty of room and seating areas paired with moderate prices
Amazing and lovely place
Great bar - better outside than in. Excellent table service
Nice place with nice drinks. Closes very early on a Sunday (20:00) wich was a surprise. However the staff still allowed us to order another round at 20:00 and didn't seem hesitant to serve us. They didn't force us to drink up also, very friendly. It's in a nice location for a Sunday stroll also. More...
Beautiful food and surroundings and great service.
Ce resto voudrait en être, mais il y a encore de la marge, par contre le décor est cocoon, l'ambiance est très zen, tout comme les serveurs, et la nourriture est bonne sans être extraordinaire. Bon rapport qualité prix, sans plus, mais mérite de s'y arrêter, pas de faire un détour pour y aller :-) More...
On est peut être mieux tombés que d autres, le service était excellent à comparer d autres restaurants. Le cadre, le service se veulent haut de gamme, mais pas les prix. On y a bien mangé, ce n est pas original mais c est bien fait. More...
yummy rib eye steak. thanks to my friend for recommending. chips had some great seasoning too
Nice place to go for an after work beer.
Great value for 2 or 3 courses meal. Nutella milkshake was very tasty for kids.The only problem was they got my bill wrong. instead of two set menu it came as 4. More...
Close to station so good to get bit to eat while waiting for off peak trains. They do automatically add a service charge though
Sunday night refuelling. Quiet but food good
Cruzando la calle a la estación de Paddington, a solo unos pocos pasos.Muy buena atención y recepción al llegar. Una carta interesante y extensa. Los sabores interesantes y bien marcados. Aun para una mesa de mas de 10 personas la atención fue la correcta.Entradas, platos y postres correctos. Algo para mejorar en los tragos, en preparación y respeto a las recetas esperadas y también por la disponibilidad de algunas bebidas internacionales. More...
Went with some friends for a drink on a Friday evening. Fairly busy, popular bar with a good selection of beers / wines
Wish I could go back! Smith's was a wonderful hangout during my work trip to London. After work they had delicious happy hours specials. I only wish I had experienced their full dining, because I had heard such great things. I'm sure it is a good, if not better, than their appetizers and cocktails More...
Great food and service
Nice spare ribs.
Graet bar with lovely outdoor heated area supplying blankets to cover the chill.
Work Christmas party, slow, but tasty and we'll organised
Is nice place but way to expensive
The bar itself is quite modern, interior is nice, prices are average like most London bars, I would say it was so crowded that it was a struggle moving about, so make sure you head here when it's not so busy!
Service has I and atmosphere is always great for and after work drink
Nice atmosphere friendly staff good serviceLiked the food tooWarehouse type decor which suited the locationRelaxed vibe by the canal
Exceedingly helpful events manager, faultless timing, quick and prompt service, good standard food. Easily capable of serving big groups without pre orders.

Good Bar nice ambiance
Nice food very quick service. Nice friendly staff. Went at lunchtime. Packed in eves..
Very nice restaurant/bar. The menu is very good and had all to choose from. The food is nice and service is good. The bar area is great for relaxing and chilling with friends. There is a private party room downstairs too. Great place will be returning More...
Muy bonito y comodo lugar al lado del canal
Nice place to hangout after work.
David I J Vaughan
Good place and reasonable value
Service and food is amazing. Little pricey but worth it.
You can go there only for drinks - happy hour & enough space to sit and stand or if you're hungry and prefer more intimate area then you can sit down and relax in the restaurant. Friendly service, good food and vibes. More...
Comfortable relaxed venue, attentive service and great burgers! Will return...
Nice ambience and good place to hang out
Stopped in for a quick dinner. Food was really good and prepared as I requested. Staff was really friendly. Only thing I was not too keen on was the speed of service. Waited a lot longer for the server than I would of liked. More...
Abbiamo cenato una sera perchè stanchi delle solite catene e fast food. Sempre visto pieno di persone a bere e quindi pensavamo fosse piú improntato sulla parte bar ma ci siamo piacevolmente sorpresi. Locale ristorante separato e ben curato, tavoli e sedie molto confortevoli, camerieri gentilissimi e molto disponibili. Menù un pó limitato ma qualitá decisamente buona! prezzo nella media di Londra. Insomma consigliato vivamente! More...
Quiet place with good food and good service. Enjoyed it.
Went here last night for a first date and my date said "you chose well". That in itself is enough of a recommendation for me. A more upmarket wine bar/restaurant for those who like a more sophisticated ambience but definitely not pretentious and had a relaxed vibe. I sat at the bar with my date and the staff were excellent. Had some fries and calamari (excellent) to accompany the vast amounts of booze we put away. All in all me and my date had a fabulous night and ended it with a prolonged snogging session after we both drunkenly admitted we fancied each other. Staff were cool with this, though probably a little jealous - not that we cared because we were really drunk and had the hots for each other. Go here for a drink and dinner - if it impressed my date it can impress yours too and maybe like me you will get lucky with a hot chick More...
Mancare buna, insa cam prost cu berea... doar un lager si un stout la draft...Excelent spatiul de afara pt fumatori, cu incalzitoare bune !
Very good for a reasonable late dinner and drink. Order the food before 10.30pm.
Excellent burgers and fries. :D will come back again
Nice bar next to the watter way in the office area of Paddinngton
Well worth the money and great service!
Really good food and well priced. Th ambiance of the place is lovely and it's right by the water. Service was also good. We have 3 people check up on us and made sure we we're well taken care of More...
Good but costly
Good choice of dishes, non inflated prices, fab location, roomy, clean, and good service. Good for business meetings, couples or groups, nice outside seating if the weather permits! On the banks of the canal and two minutes from the station. Thumbs up from me!! More...
Fabulous service! The food was perfect and tasted super delicious. Will definately be returning!!! I can only recommend them. Lovely ambience, great portion size and as I said the food is just delicious. More...
Wonderful ribs and good beer.
Love the style of this place
Lovely location and great deserts!
Good food, miserable staff with poor customer service
The fish and chips looked good, I had the Thai beef salad and it was ok...
Alright bar, nothing standout though
Topclass venue, always have a great time there
Great location, good food and trendy atmosphere
Nice place ,to go out with friends for a pint . Disadvantage , is a bit expensive.
Nice place for dining as it wasn't too cramped.
Breakfast bap was nice, coffee was good, price was reasonable for sitting by canal, but most of all the staff were really friendly, helpful. Just a nice quick breakfast stop before a day of meetings More...
Najlepsza barmańska obsługa w mieście. Szybko można tu zjeść ok. 10 minut na naprawdę dobrze zrobione żarełko. Wspaniałe to miejsce nie zapomnę go nigdy.
Good Food, good Service. Great.
Very nice place to relax in the heat of summer. Lovely surroundings.
Nice place for a quiet drink if you've been in Sheldon Square during the day. Would prefer a couple of ale choices on tap, but good selection of premium lagers, wines, and cocktails.
Great food and service!
Great place and friendly service
Good bar, good service, music low enough so that you can talk without shouting.
Lively canal side modern bar
Best wine bar in Paddington Central area. Looks good and has good service. Often busy on weeknight evenings
Great place, very close to Paddington station.
Loverly food and good service.
Near office pub for anyday
Localização muito boa, em Little Venice.
Very good wine choices. Nice sitting outside.
Helle Warrer Hornbæk
Hvis du skal vente på Paddington station i 3 timer, så bør du besøge dette sted. Venligt personale, lækker vin, super godt hvidløgsbrød :-)
Great pub next to the canal
Nice terrasseand quite. Isolated from traffic and next to water canal... Very cool place.
Nice quiet, pub with great drinks.
Average lunch restaurant. Nothing really great. It was so sunny I had to escape office for lunch and I landed here. Had chips and fish. Garlic dip was good ;)
Quick service at lunch time. Good quality food.
Great place. Lovely drinks but under staffed.
Quite light and not too packed with tables. Staff were polite and friendly.
Nice place pleasant and friendly staff, but like most bars in London nowadays make sure your wallet is full with funds.
Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, great food. Best flat iron are alive had. Would return to London for that steak
Great food.Good service
Si mangia bene
Good for after-work drinks near Paddington Station
Excellent service and food
Exquisite dinner and excellent customer service. . Dined on a Monday after work and it's based by Paddington Central station.
Plenty of room, good service modern decor. Expensive but this is London.
Great place, great service
Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Nice facilities
Great atmosphere, great helpful staff and amazing food and drinks.... the chicken bites omg!!!!
Well looked after by the host team for a business lunch. They allowed us a late arrival and did not rush us away. Good food with interesting flavours and sensible portion sizes for lunch. Nice NY vibe
A nice and quite place
Crowded inside at peak (5-6pm) but there are plenty of seats outside with heaters and during summer it's a really nice pub. Nothing special about the place really, has a wide variety of spirits, and cocktails are available, but not much on the beer front. More...
Well presented tasty food. Service is good with lots of energetic people doing the runs. The newly refurbished bar and restaurant is really pleasant to eat and drink. Highly recommended!
Love this place. Walked by a million times and have only gone in a few days ago and loved everything about the place. The atmosphere, the decor, the staff.
Good place for a relaxed business lunch or after work drinks. Food and service won't offend.
great place for a pint!
nice modern place, great outdoors by the canal in the summer
Un restaurant typique un bon atmosphère une carte variée nourriture de qualité et prix abordable.
awesome location n good food
Extremely friendly staff who made a business meeting very easy. Good menu choices at reasonable prices.
Charming place, possible to book small private room. Amazing service
Delicious food and cocktails in quiet stylish dining area. Will do it again and again. Please try lamb chops. Best ever .
Good location, good staff, good food and beer.WNTL

Great place, great food
Great place to spend time with friends and family
Good pub grill bar. Good food and attentive service
Ayan Kumar Bhattacharjee
Nice place to hangout near Sheldon square..
Food can be better
Nice and friendly staff
I liked it. But sometimes it's a bit boring. Depends what mood i'm in. One night we played ping pong with a french man, that was pretty good. But another night, i drank too much without eating... That wasn't so good. 4 star More...
The gorgeous canal-side grill is one of my favourite places for a business meeting in Paddington. Tried the wheat salad, which was a little bland, but definitely healthy.
good place to invite your friends for a beer
Good service and background music, like the bench seating. Food was served promptly and was tasty.
The food was good and the personnel as well
Nice place. Modern
Great location and good food but over-priced for what you get.
Had a business function-turned-party here and had a great time. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was good.
Surprisingly good red curry for a pub. Avg rating because they need more staff at the bar to service the huge number of office workers that go there in the evening.
Service and food quality was on point. Been here a few times, this time went for a company Christmas lunch on set menu. Drinks were speedy and when food was being served as everyone had a different choice it was all given to the correct people and no mistakes were made which I found impressive considering 16 people to cater for. Would recommend again!
Very good food, busy when we went and no complaints on service. The fish option was just as good as the meat options. The ribs looked particularly good and recommended by my colleagues.
Delicious burgers and a good selection of beers
After work drinks place , friendly staff
Sehr schöne Bar und vor allem leckere Cocktails. Die Preise haben es typisch für London in sich. Heizpilze und Decken stehen draußen zur Verfügung.
We enjoyed our meal. Started with mojito s for both, and then had grilled lamb chops with roasted potatoes, broccoli. Lamb was cooked properly too.
Very spacious, brilliant burgers and delicious fries. A little slow with service
Very spacious. Nice location next to the canal
Such a good atmosphere
Good place for meeting after work, catching up with friends.
Flavio V. S. Zanchi
Good quality service and food.
It's ok. A little pricey and a little soulless but ok for an after work drink
Lively atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good selection of drinks.
Nice bar near the heart of city
Convenient location for Paddington station.
Good beers, great location.
Only came in for a few drinks. There is plenty of seating here. Cheap drinks for happy hour. Playing some decent electronic music in the evening too.
Good venue. Good atmosphere. Food is nice.
Delicious cocktails and amazing food !!
Friendly staff with reasonably priced cocktails. Great evening atmosphere with ping pong table to suit. Great for an evening dink in the summer over looking the canal
Living near Little Venice, I wanted to go to Smith's for some time. Unfortunately, it was always closed, or at least the kitchen was closed, when I went there. But last week I tried again and finally - the kitchen was still open when I showed up! :)The restaurant is light and clean, has a nice interior, also with some sofas if you are more in a lounge mood.
I had a really tasty burger with delicious fries and a very good cheesecake. Strawberry cheesecake feels wrong in November, but anyway - it tasted good! More...
