About Us

The Carlton Tavern is a 100yr old pub, nestling on the edge of Paddington Recreation ground in Maida Vale, where Roger Bannister famously trained to break the 4-min mile…The pub was one of only a handful of buildings on the street to survive the Blitz, however it did not survive the bulldozers of the property developers that bought it and demolished it illegally in 2015.

Following a campaign that saw the local community and Westminster council work tirelessly for over 5 years, the pub was re-built in complete replica of the original design by local architect Francis J. Potter.

In 2021, the pub has been reinvigorated and reopened, ready to serve the local community fine ales and great food for the next 100 years! We have a pub, dining room and beer garden to enjoy and look forward to welcoming you for a swift half or a three course meal and everything in between…

What’s going on at the Carlton Tavern…

We’re open…Inside!

We’re finally allowed to welcome everyone back into our lovely pub, but a few restrictions remain so we will still have to ask you to check in, wear masks when moving around inside and stay sat at your table to order drinks…

During this phase of re-opening, our beer garden will be App only and our terrace will still be serviced fully. You can now book a table in our dining room or in the pub through our online booking service and as ever we are holding a few tables for walk-ins every day.



We still aren’t connected to the gas supply but as soon as we are (end of next week hopefully!) we will finally be able to use our full kitchen capacity and will be updating our menu to include more seasonal specials for the dining room, a great lunchtime menu for those WFH/WFtP and some more cracking bar snacks for everyone to nibble on whilst catching up over a few pints…

Watch this space!

Follow us on our social feeds to keep up to date with the latest food specials and changing cask beers!

See you on the cobbles! Ben, Tom, Oscar, Jurgi and Team…


Book online using our handy table booking app.
