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

Been here many times, always hoping it would be better but not. Seating uncomfortable, staff not interested - front of house and obviously not back of house

I haven't been here for years, but met up with a local for a simple lunch and good catch-up. Middle of the week lunchtime the restaurant filled up with a wonderful cross section of people. Most notable was how comfortable many of older people who had probably come from the nearby Goodwin Village were. Some were meeting families with children... More

OK so I ordered the roasted barramundi and it was just perfect in every respect. Cooked exactly to the point of firm but not dry, piping hot, the skin crisped and flavoursome. My son had the filet steak on the bone and it was big fat and juicy. The only fault was the completely horrible "béarnaise" sauce which was a... More

Many reviews of The Lord Dudley begin with a comparison to English pubs. It does indeed exude “olde worlde” charm but those old English pubs are ramshackle, remember, because they’ve been there 400 years and survived the Blitz. The Dudley has achieved shabbiness in a fraction of that time. To be fair, we weren’t there long so there might be... More

Hard to go past The Lord Dudley for a pie and a pint. Great range of beers and ales, open fire for chilly winter days and nights and huge, delicious pies. Good range of bar food, but I highly recommend the beef pie. It's substantial and fabulous pastry like my granny used to make, and rammed full of beef. No... More

My mothers 81st Birthday lunch was ruined by the food of this place! Chili Hot Pot - not a chilli to be found, and the prawns were from Coles delicatessen window and imported! The spicy chicken wings the same. Bland and no chilli whatsoever! Pork Belly (we ordered two) and the knife couldn't cut through either of our dishes. we... More
