Draft House Paddington


Draft House Paddigton is sat at the top of the Paddington canal basin behind the Hilton Metropole, and just so happens to be the first Draft House pub to be serving pizza.

The pub is in a modern building, but they have been inspired by the Victorian age of travel and wonder - of canals, railways and ocean liners.
The canal at Paddington, now a place of urban beauty for alternative types to live on long-boats while tourists and workers wander past, was the cutting edge of logistics when it was built at mind-boggling expense in the 1810s, providing a way of shipping goods from the north and west to London.

Just twenty years later it was rendered more or less obsolete with the launch of the Great Western Railway, when Paddington became the starting point for the journey to Bristol, and then on to New York. Suddenly the common man could travel anywhere, the possibilities must have seemed limitless.

They have sought to capture this excitement via the creation of Draft House World – a string of fantasy beer islands. Each island is a semi-private area in the pub: Malt Landing, the Saison Isles, Hopville and Port Pilsner. These are linked together by imaginary beer maps on the walls of the pub, surveyed and plotted by the geniuses at Studio Frith. It should be a grand place for a pint – but also uniquely brilliant for a party.

With 12” pizzas starting at just £6 this is going to be a good spot for regular luncheons and high teas, and there is a 22" if you're full of ambition (or for those who like to share). But fear not, Draft Housers, THERE IS A HAMBURGER. And a mighty fine one at that.
