The Union Bar Paddington



The Union Paddington is right by the canal in Sheldon Square. It's right next to Paddington Station and a short walk from Little Venice. They serve quick and fresh lunches at good value and have a vibrant atmosphere for drinks and tapas with friends and colleagues. It's also a good spot for a coffee while you watch the world (and barges) go by during the day.

The venue has a modern, industrial design with plenty of comfy seating and is open 7 days a week.

The main menu is all cooked freshly and varies from baked Gypsy eggs to Thai red curry to 38 day ages Hereford steak. Don't miss the freshly prepared specials either. There is also a tapas menu available in the evening with the calamari which is a keen favourite.

They have a great range of draught or bottled beer to go with a wide-ranging wine list as well as all their favourite cocktails.
