Is the site covered & protected from the elements?
During the summer we open up the terrace so we are exposed to the elements. A large area our lower terrace remains covered. Upstairs and a number of our daybeds are not covered.
Pergola Paddington is outdoors and therefore the rule of 6 applies for bookings from Monday 12th April to Sunday 16th May. We are able to accept larger bookings from no more than 2 households but please be aware you will be required to show that you and your guests are from no more than 2 households with valid proof of identification.
Please keep in mind that although the majority of our tables are covered from the elements, the English weather can be somewhat unpredictable in April and May and we recommend all guests dress accordingly. If you wish to rearrange your booking due to cold or wet weather then please contact our team who will be happy to find a new date and time for you.
