Open air food markets aren’t as common in West London as they are elsewhere, presumably because when you have so many private squares to day drink in, you don’t really need Korean burritos. Pergola Central is a nice addition in Paddington, then, with a setup that’s halfway between an open food court and a Mediterranean garden, with loads of pretty plants and a beachy vibe that’ll make your Instagram followers think that you’re in Mykonos. The food lineup is decent - burger from Patty & Bun, tacos from DF/Mexico and trendy Southern cooking from Decatur - and there’s heaps of space for your whole crew.
