Frontline in London is a restaurant with its own story, found below the journalists’ club of the same name. The classically British menu makes use of the finest produce, much of it from Frontline’s own Norfolk farm.

The fare at Frontline is reassuringly robust. Mains such as roast chicken, hedgerow garlic mash and woodland mushrooms, or potato dumplings, sprouting broccoli and cashel blue, nod towards honest home-cooked British cuisine.

Their indulgent dessert list is equally comforting, with sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch crème fraiche, and pistachio rice pudding and blackberry jam bringing a new twist to old favourites. Frontline also keep a wide selection of well-chosen fine wines from around the world.

Also offering a pre- and post-theatre set menu, Frontline restaurant’s award-winning food makes this one of Paddington’s best finds. A 4-minute walk from Paddington Station, it’s also close to Edgware Road and Lancaster Gate Tube.

    Overall a very poor experience - we booked on a recommendation and due to proximity to Paddington as were hosting some very important business partners
    Drinks order was slow in being taken and then the wrong drinks were delivered
    The waiter got a food order wrong and delivered both starter and main at same time for one of the guests - due to the length of time food had taken and the fact it was getting late we continued - this then meant that our main courses were late in being delivered.
    The food quality was poor and my fish was soggy and undercooked and chip portion totalled to 10 chips!
    The prices were typically London but the food was the worst quality pub grub!
    By this time it was too late to change or do anything different so we left asap
    Will not be revisiting this restaurant as I cannot afford to put my partners through this expereicne again and I have already had to apologise to them for the poor choice of restaraunt

    The food, service and ambience were excellent.

    A night to forget! The fish (in the fish and chips) was off. I am fisheries biologist and know my fish - the food I was served was a public health hazard; its smell so bad it should never have been accepted in a kitchen. With insufficient time to reorder mains before catching trains we ordered ice creams as a hasty desert. These took fifty minutes to arrive as the restaurant emptied around us. A wholly disappointing experience, and a great shame to lose faith in Frontline's reliability.

    Good service, good food, reasonable prices. I've lunched here before and I hope I will again. (and that is the best recommendation.)

    Nice food, poor service

  • (((** 15 October 2016 by Claire Burgess from Reading

    Lovely modern restaurant and close to Paddington. Friendly service, food was more mixed - starters were good, but mains were overpriced and the meat was poor - lamb mixed grill was over cooked, and chop was tiny and mostly fat, the lamb pie had soggy pastry and was partly inedible and broccoli arrived almost cold.
