Nice English pub

Went on a Sunday evening for a few beers but decided to eat in the bar , food was only average not one of the better places to eat when visiting Sydney. In my opinion food was overpriced but to make up for this had a large variety of beers on tap.

Good pub food and real ale makes for a great evening. We have eaten several times downstairs, but personally prefer sitting on the ground floor, in the panelled bar. If you are an English expat or anglophile and are seeking an English experience in Sydney, this is your place. The real ale completes the package!

One of the last original great Paddington Hotels! everything you'd expect from a hotel, cold beer and great pub food! you can't go wrong! Best nights to go are any night the Wallabies are playing away from home, big screen, sensational atmosphere, and a great local crowd. The publican is a fabulous host!

The ambiance is so thick with authenticity you could cut it up with a knife, wrap it in Gladwrap and freeze it for another day. The mood lighting is simply gold medal. They've got the feel exactly right. They have a huge selection of beers and a much better than average menu. The prices are exactly right for what they... More

Food was good, tasty and cooked well. The Guinness was ok, the atmosphere was great, just like an old English pub but it felt like the service was being delivered from England too, very slow. But overall a good place to hang out.

This was our first visit to the Lord Dudley and we chose to sit in the ground floor pub section as we were after a quick main course and home again. We both chose the beer battered fish which was OUTSTANDING. The crisp batter was perfection, the fish was moist, the chips were more-ish, and the mushy peas came served... More
