Bayswater Arms99 Queensway
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Bayswater is a corruption of Bayard's Watering, the chief spring of the district situated near Queensway and from which in 1439 a conduit was built to supply the City of London with water. Now the eponymous pub is an air-conditioned haven from the bustle of Queensway. Faux Victorian interior, with dark wall coverings sporting framed photographs of local Edwardian street scenes and the area's well-known former residents, contrasts with the 60s block in which this pub occupies the corner. Plenty of tables on a mixture of carpeted and painted wooden floors and a menu of pub-grub food attract in tourists and other passing trade as well as the regulars. Note that the licence does not allow sale of alcohol before 10am Monday to Saturday or noon on Sunday.
