Londoners LOVE drinking al fresco. Which is just as well because this week saw Brixton Beach, Last Days of Shoreditch AND Paddington Pergola open their doors and let the sunshine IN!
If you’re based West you’ll be thrilled with the addition to the area. The sister site to White City, Paddington’s Pergola is set over two floors. The ground floor is home to a bar and large day beds – perfect for groups, whilst the basement is where they house the street food. Expect Ari Gold’s from Patty & Bun, dumplings from Malamam, tacos from DF/Mexico, Louisiana from Decatur and finally healthy vegan from Raw Press! We highly recommend the taco platter for two from Raw Press – a huge portion of blue corn chips with splodges of coconut cream and spicy sweet potato. YUM!
There are huge long tables for sharing, or if you have a group of 4 or more you can book ahead. It took a long time to get served so go for a bottle of the rose from Provence rather than mess about with glasses.
The pergola will be open until 1st October (maybe a tad optimistic, but we like it!!) at both lunch and dinner.
