The Districts of Bayswater & Paddington

††††††††††† Other than the London Toy and Model Museum one would not expect to find much here if looking at a map.But Queensway is the street you want to be.A blend of shops and restaurants mix well with the nearby pubs to make this a self contained community. The full length Edgware Road is lined with excellent Middle Eastern restaurants.My favorite is The Lebanese Restaurant at 60 Edgware Rd.There are more pubs here but I have not gotten to them yet.Give me time.

††††††††††† I had forgotten the name of this pub before the Aussi's took over.This is a nice pub to be sure but maybe too young of a crowd for me. Lisa Pendill of Bayswater emailed me in 2002 to tell me the old name was Ashes and thought it was a much nicer pub then. Thanks Lisa.

††††††††††† Mick and Lynne are the owners and Steve Beer does the web site. My first visit was in January 2003 and was glad I did (more than once). You feel like you are going into your local the moment to step in. The staff and regulars are friendly and things just get better during the Monday night sing-a-long. Yes, thatís why the piano is in the seating area.

Paddington Station

††††††††††† A very nice sports pub. I say nice because it was enjoyable to be here during an afternoon match (Jan 2003). The lads were well behaved but I think it was due to the team losing. This Victorian-era pub itself is very attractive and displays some great glass mirrors. If you want to have a pint, study architecture or root for the team this is the pub.
