Thank you. Delicious food! Soz I didnt quite finish the burger as found it quite a bigger sized burger for me but it was yum. Fries hot & freshly made. Dessert was yummy especially the cheesecake. And there was even colouring in for the kid. Yay! Also ran into an old friend there too. Service very attentive tx you. Overall wonderful night celebrating a bday.

Dined at the Paddingtinon Saturday night, 3 Nov, before our Adam Smith concert. The location was perfect, as we could leave our car in the parking next to the restaurant and walk to the Spark Arena. 15 minute brisk walk. The food at the Paddington was delicious. The ribs and crispy chicken were tasty and full of flavour. The service was excellent. Couldn’t fault anything. We’ll be back.

Greeted by smiley and friendly service. Taken to our table and ordered drinks a starter and two mains.
The food was delicious and the portions are incredibly generous! My 300g scotch fillet was cooked perfectly! And my partner had the double lamb shanks with a beautiful mash!
We were checked on and cared for thoroughly but still given our space!
This is the sort of place that really cares about their customers experience despite being a busy bar at the same time!
Safe to say we will definitely return!
Thanks team @ Paddington! :)

Those Jalapeno Poppers - some of the best I've ever had!!! We ended up ordering two orders! We also had the tequila prawn salad for starters - beautifully light and fresh just like the waitress advised.
For mains: peri peri chicken burger and the beef & bacon burger. Both very tasty, but we were so blown away by the poppers we almost couldn't pay attention to anything else!
The wait staff was fantastic as well. We had Tabby, and she was super helpful, friendly, and attentive. Will 100% be back for some of their events, like quiz nights and things. We're so glad we found this place :)

Very helpful and pleasant staff. Great atmosphere in the pub and the platters we ordered were very generous. The pub was very busy due to the rugby being on, but staff were fast and chatty.

The food is wonderful with a big portion. The mid-rare steak shows the skill of the chef, lamb shank and pork belly also remarkable. The menus provides daily special dishes, shared platters, main, dessert etc. If it's winter, try winter wine, you will love it.
The bar has quite a lot space with TV and pool table good for birthday party or event. We absolutely love this place!

The food was wonderful and we enjoyed our meal. We had the pork ribs, scotch fillet and pork belly and really enjoyed it, the Halumi fries were my favorite. The only slight annoyance was that the person serving us was a little over enthusiastic about clearing our plates and kept asking if she could clear them every 5 minutes (they still had good on them).

Aside from this we had a nice evening with lovely mulled wine and great food and would definitely come back again

The Paddy never fails to disappoint with its scrumptious food and relaxed vibe. I highly recommend the salt & pepper squid starters (melt in your mouth deliciousness and the best we've had in absolutely ages), spicy beef burger and Scotch steak which is served with cooked to bloomin perfection beer battered fries. Thanks for a lovely meal, we can't wait to return.

Personally, the food was pretty good. The seafood platter was very fresh! The nachos could have used some cheese. Besides that, the service staff were very helpful despite being a bar environment.

Great wee pub, drawing activities provided for our kids, I had the roast and my husband had the burger, both were great. Dessert options were limited as first choice not available but loved the lemon tart all the same. Stress free dining experience, super helpful and friendly staff.

The food I ordered was good, my partner ordered pizza which doesnt taste good feels like they just put the chili sauce some additional meat and thats it. I would rate the pizza 1/10. The rest was ok.

We started off great - got waited on straight away and got some drinks. As soon as we got our food we stop seeing any staff, even though the place was pretty much empty. No one asked if we wanted any more drinks, no one asked if our food was okay and our empty plates never got cleared off the table. Such a shame as after a while one of the waitresses came over to the table next to us to take an order and she still didn't clear our table.

Food was good - can especially recommend the Beef Salad.
