Description
A favourite among Eastern Suburbs locals for over 30 years, Paddo Inn is a lively neighbourhood pub with a Grill at the back and bar at the front. The food in the Grill is all about quality - simple cooking featuring great Australian beef, seafood and local, seasonal produce. Paddo Inn was the first professional kitchen that Matt Moran worked in over 20 years ago, and now he’s back where it all started, overseeing the menu and working closely with Head Chef Mark Holland. A private dining room sits above the restaurant and seats up to 20 guests, or 30 standing.
