Pergola Paddington Central opens from May 24th to 1st October 2017. We are now taking reservations!
After securing status as one of the capital’s prime rooftop food and drinking destinations in White City, we have launched another unique alfresco dining experience, under our iconic pergola, in the heart of Paddington.
Following the ‘Pergola’ way, our venue will feature a host of London’s most exciting and best-loved restaurants, who will create a range of bespoke menus for our new urban hideaway.
Whether it’s a working lunch in the sunshine, after work drinks or dinner under the stars, you’ll find it all in one place at Pergola Paddington Central. With 850 seats, 7 day beds, self-service dining, 2 bars set over two levels, DJs at the weekend, a high line bridge, summer tunes and a roof in case of rain, we have everything covered!
Expect a unique, contemporary design: wooden panelling and clean copper bars with an industrial feel. Set over two floors, the new Pergola Paddington Central will take inspiration from the canal-side, Central London location - fusing contemporary urban-design with lush green landscaping.
Regular and guest DJs, as well as live music will add to the relaxed festival feel, against a backdrop of the capital’s unmistakable skyline. This urban paradise blurs the lines; pub, restaurant, festival - it ticks all the boxes.
Unlike Pergola on the Roof at Television Centre, Pergola Paddington will be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. With the best food bill around, our five top restaurants cater for every preference, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. Choose from Patty & Bun, Decatur, Mamalan, Raw Press and DF/Mexico, each serving their incredible bespoke dishes from shining, copper clad kiosks.
Long communal tables make this the perfect place for large group bookings, which are free of charge as per the Pergola ethos. Ideal for birthdays, engagements, work functions, celebrations or even just a romantic date – book for up to 199 people for zero cost and while away a summer’s evening or afternoon.
MAKE A RESERVATION
We pride ourselves on accommodating for groups of all shapes and sizes with a deposit free reservation system. We love big parties! Pergola Paddington is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, go on a date or simply catch up with friends or work colleagues. We only feel the need to take reservations if your party is larger than four people - the process couldn’t be simpler, click below to get started.
If you’re coming to see us in a group of two or three our walk-in spaces are available for you to use – these spaces gets snapped up pretty quickly in popular times, so if you’re a group of less than four or just simply without a reservation, do come and see us early to avoid a possible queue & in really busy times I'm afraid we can't guarantee you entry. Please note we don’t take reservations for lunch spaces Monday - Friday at Pergola Paddington Central. Don't worry you’ll be able to grab a spot on these days so no need to reserve a place.
