The Cleveland Arms

est. 1852

Paddington's Local Since 1852
Since 1852, The Cleveland Arms has been serving the Paddington community.

Bought in 2014 by local businesswoman, Maria Tamander, the pub has undergone a substantial renovation and refit, ensuring it’s ready to serve the area well into the 21st century.

We are proud to have been selected as a St Austell Master and a Timothy Taylor Champion pub. We are also a registered Cask Marque pub.

Head Chef: Louis Lingwood
We hope that you’ll find food a major part of your visit to The Cleveland Arms. We serve unpretentious, European food from the best of British ingredients, seven days a week.

Head Chef Louis Lingwood carefully creates and curates a range of delicious foods, from our weekday lunch specials to our renowned Sunday roasts.

Our food changes weekly, but do click below to get an idea of what we serve.

Cleveland Lunch Club
£10 or £12 with a glass of white or beer
If you’re looking for an alternative to a London workspace, or to eat something more interesting than a sandwich at your desk, why not pop in between 12 and 3 every Monday to Friday to take advantage of the Cleveland Lunch Club.

You have a choice of offering: either our special of the day for £10 (or £12 with a drink of wine or beer).

If you sign up to our newsletter and get yourself a loyalty card, enjoy 10 lunches and get your 11th free.

Our Prix Fixe offers two courses (starter/ lunch special, or lunch special/ dessert) for £12.50, or three courses for £15.

We’re delighted to say that Our Sunday roasts have been getting some rave reviews.

We regularly host private parties, from baby showers to wrap parties for anywhere from 10 – 60 people, as well as a bespoke set menu.

Serving the best of the best
As we’re an independently owned and run pub, that means we can carefully choose the beers, ales, and lagers that we serve behind the bar. Our bar manager, Toni, makes sure that we get the best from the breweries, as well as offering some of the classics that you might expect to find.

We’re proud to be a CAMRA recognised pub and to enjoy a great relationship with both St Austell Brewery and Timothy Taylor Brewery. As of February 2019, we are also recognised as a Cask Marque pub.

Combining Quality, Class & Ecology
When it comes to the wine we serve, we operate on a simple principle: they should compliment our food, bring joy to those who drink it, and offer the best by way of quality and price.

Our eclectic range covers the full gamut of wines, and we’re also proud to offer wine on tap. For recommendations with your meal, our restaurant manager Valentino has trained all our lovely people to make sure they’re ready to help.
