Smith’s Bar & Grill is nestled in Paddington, London, it is the first place you see when you walk under the bypass behind Paddington Station.

Known for its high ceilings and almost full-length windows, the natural light in Smith’s is just as nourishing and wholesome as the comfortable furnishings and exquisite selection of food and drink that we serve.

The venue is split into the areas:
• Main Restaurant
• Main Bar & Lounge Area
• Outdoor Terrace Canal-side


Smith’s is an ideal venue for weddings, on-location filming, major launch events, and multi-stage music and entertainment events.
The whole venue can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people for a sit-down dinner and up to 400 standing. Its proximity to Paddington Station (50 yards from the Hammersmith & City Underground entrance) makes it quick to get to for those coming from out of town.

    On arrival was met by two staff members one of which tried to pretend they couldn't find the booking and they were closed. 4pm booking. 2nd staff member explained that Smith's shares a venue with someone else and because we have a reservation we cannot be turned away "we have to seat them" then two waiters tried to rush us into ordering before we decided to visit a venue that wants customers. A terrible birthday experience and will it be returning to this chain

    I love Smith's Bar and Grill. The food, especially the full English, and roasts are exquisite. The service, which was already exempl, was even better yesterday. The ambiance, the food and beverages, professionalism, care, and attentiveness of the staff makes Smith's Bar and Grill a favourite of mine and my family's. We're already planning our next visit and are looking forward to the festive menus, too!

    Food was very average . A lot of our meat was very gritty and fatty. The ambience was great and it is a beautiful location.

    We had the roast to share in two, and although the meat was delicious, the meal was lukewarm. We had to ask for the vegetables and the gravy to be heated up… My mom had the same dish but not the sharing and apparently her was hot. We also noticed that her portion was bigger than ours. It’s a very loud restaurant, a few big groups celebrating parties, so be aware of that. Overall not my type of place, as I prefer to have a nice and hot meal with no loud parties going on around me.
    Smith's Bar & GrillResponded on 31 May 2024
    Dear Anonymous, Thank you for sharing your detailed feedback about your recent visit. We're pleased to hear that you found the meat delicious. However, we’re truly sorry to learn that your meal was lukewarm and that you had to request the vegetables and gravy to be reheated. This is not the standard we aim to uphold, and we apologise for any inconvenience this caused. Regarding the noise level, we recognise that a lively atmosphere may not be suitable for everyone. We appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration as we strive to create an environment that caters to all our guests' preferences. Thank you again for bringing these matters to our attention. We hope you might consider giving us another chance in the future. Warm regards, EM

    The Sunday Roasts are delicious. Roast serve a tantalising array of roasts. Personally, I hate potatoes, but like theirs. Their Yorkshire puddings are a delightful mix of a golen crunchy brown outside and a succulent bottom. The belly of pork and lamb shank were extremely tender and very flavourful.
    Smith's Bar & GrillResponded on 24 May 2024
    Dear LauraC, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our Sunday roasts, especially since you found our potatoes to your liking despite usually not being a fan. It's great to know that our Yorkshire puddings hit the mark with their perfect combination of crunchy and succulent textures. We're also delighted that the belly of pork and lamb shank were to your satisfaction, both in tenderness and flavor. Your kind words mean a lot to us and serve as great motivation for our team. We look forward to welcoming you back for more delicious meals in the future. Warm regards, EM

    Great Atmosphere & service. It's a shame my partner and i were sat amongst a couple with a young child who made a request for the music to be turned down, i was under the impression the bottomless dinner and drinks were going to be loud and lively. This was just very unfortunate.
    Smith's Bar & GrillResponded on 24 May 2024
