Crocker's Folly, Paddington
our final review
posted by jack on 25/6/2004
Proving that a stunning interior does not always a great pub make, is this grand nineteenth century watering hole. Architecturally, it's one of the finest around, with extravagant Victorian design in each of its three large rooms. Somehow though, the atmosphere is a bit lacking - maybe the sheer size of the place makes it hard to feel comfortable here and a few too many TV screens doesn't help. Nevertheless, if you are after more than a quick pint, there are plenty of ales try out, a separate restaurant and enough games machines to snaffle up your loose change.

Exit tube, turn around and walk down Warwick Avenue away from the tube, before turning left at the canal onto Blomfield Road. Follow the canal up to the bridge, cross Edgware Road, and Aberdeen Place is in front of you.
