The basic Fullerís range in casks< a few bottles too, including Past Masters and Vintage series. Simple, but well-done pub food. Being located at a large train-station, the prices are a bit higher - for tourists.

Had a few drinks here during the Cask Ale Week in late September. Food and beer paring outside the entrance with lots of ales from London breweries like Hackney, London Fields, Fullers, Cronx, Five Points, and so on. Crowded and impossible to find a place to sit down. Smiling and friendly service from the waitress. Itís located at the second floor, on the inside of the Paddington Station building. A classic Brit pub and a good Fullers pub. On other occasions I have always enjoyed well-kept cask ales from Fullers here (visited 25.09.2014).

Convinient if you have some time to kill at Paddington station, and need to move away from the hassle at the station.Nice decorated, some elevated seating areas, with leather chairs and sofas. Standard Fuller beer selection, some bottles from the Past Masters series. Good and reasonable food as well.

Fullers pub in the upstairs part of Paddington councourse. Housed in the former Great Western Railway offices so some behind the scenes Victoriana in terms of the decor. Never seen this place totally packed and have always had OK service. Fullers only in terms of cask and tap, plus some bottles - Vintage and the like. If youíre catching a train from Paddington - why not but not one to venture out of the way for!

As station bars go, this is one of the better ones. In fact, if it werenít for the arrivals and departures boards (a good idea for any bar in a station), a bank of fruit machines for bored passengers waiting for their trains and the pigeon wandering about on the floor, it wouldnít be difficult to imagine yourself in an elegant, nicely restored classical style pub. It has a lofty ceiling, chandeliers, wooden Doric arches with clocks set into them (also useful in a station) behind the bar and five Fullers hand pumps. (Visited 7 January 2012).

If youíre in Paddington station and you need a pint really badly, thatís just what youíll get. Honestly youíre better off catching the train home and downing a quick one in your local. even if you live in Hell.

A surprisingly comfy pub. It creates a strangely nice atmosphere, being in a busy station, but enjoying your pint in a rather pub-like place with dark wood panels and an old feel. They have done a nice job isolating the pub to make it more warm, but at the same time being reminded of where you are. Nicely balanced. The service was good, depending on who was serving. The selection was standard Fullers, so not much can go wrong there. I had my first Hock here, which was a pleasant experience, very surprised. Didnít taste the food, so canít comment on that. A nice place rating it for what it is. Not my favourite style, but they did a nice job with what they went with.

Station pubs in the UK can be a bit dire. This one is relatively decent and has a much more pubby feel than most. Beers from the Fullers range, sometimes with a guest. Frequently stocks the Fullers seasonals/specials, unlike many Fullers pubs. Worth a look if you are at the station. Also handy if you need to use the toilet and donít want to pay to use the station ones.

Surprisingly well-stocked Fullers bar at Paddington Station. Enjoyed getting a few new rates here.
