English charm

The restaurant is part of the pub itself and has just as much olde english charm as the bar area. Service was very good but being in Woollahra the prices look much the same as any other pub here and its not reflected in the food. If I order a medium rare steak(salad & chips) I expect to see some... read 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

The Lord Dudley is a great old English styled pub tucked away in the back streets of Woollahra. The old decor and open fire place makes you feel as though you are in the English countryside. The pub boasts a hearty menu with a delicious Sunday roast, (roast pork, veggies, Yorkshire pudding and gravy). With other stands outs being their... More

After wandering the rocks area make your way up to Sydneys oldest 'pub and meet the locals. Nice friendly atmosphere and get the feel of olden Sydney.

This is a great pub set in suburban Woollahra but you feel you could be in London somewhere. Its design and character are very English and it has not changed over time. A very good experience and well worth a visit

From the outside & going into this pub you could almost be somewhere in the UK. This is the most authentic English pub I've had the pleasure to eat & drink in away from Blighty. A cool atmosphere, nicely decorated & a cracking selection of beers & ciders. Four of us ate downstairs & we had a lovely meal, starters... More

great little pub with a cool atmosphere and relaxed vibe. right near paddo bowls if you want to have a drink somewhere with a bit of character after your bowling game. Didn't eat here but saw the little restaurant section downstairs and would love to go back!

So much character about this place. Very old pub, but beautiful set up. Great atmopshere and really good staff. Food was pretty good and had a great selection of drinks. Nice pub to chill out at for a few hours, not as up market or flash/snobby like you get from some other places in Sydney

All the history and dark wood panelling, and leather chesterfields create an intimate atmosphere hard to find in busy Sydney. We cracked a couple of bottles of nice wine and enjoyed it immensely. Food bistro is average-good but the whole package is worth trying - about 30 beers on tap!
