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 :)

We arrived early and the staff happily set the table for us. It was great night. The sharing plate was so big and we couldn't finish them all. So lucky to have leftover for our midnight snacks back to hotel. Yumm

Dark, dingy and dismal service!

We visited The Paddington on First Table on Sunday, September 15th.

On arrival we were totally ignored by the two bar staff who refused to acknowledge us.

When we were finally seated we were ignored once again and despite the fact it should have been table service were forced to go up to the bar to order as no member of staff came anywhere near our table.

Our food - the lamb shank and the fish and chips - was lovely and it is a good job as we were not asked once whether everything was OK with our meals after they were served to us.

No staff came to clear our plates (although they did clear empty plates from a table who had left) and left the dirty dishes in-front of us until we got up to leave.

We observed the waitress speaking rudely to another customer and as such decided to skip dessert.

When we went to pay our bill we were once again kept waiting and during the payment transaction the member of staff at no point asked us about our experience.

The venue itself was cold, drafty and the menus were unclean. AVOID.

I dined here with my 2 kids and a friend. The waitress took 25 minutes after we were seated, to take our orders. We had to ask whether there was any kids menus as we weren't given any on arrival. Next to nothing available for kids so we continued to order several items off the main table menus (we also note that she didn't have a pen or pad). She repeated the orders back to us and we were happy. She said she would be back with colouring pens for the kids but continued to talk to patrons that were sitting at the bar and didn't return. I had to send my daughter up to the till to ask her for pens 20 minutes after she had left our table. Our orders arrive one at a time and notice we were given the wrong sized pizza for the kids - it also wasn't cooked as requested (cheese only, no tomatoes/sauce), it had tomatoes and the cheese wasn't fully melted on. We were given a bar snack size salt pepper squid instead of a main, it was also returned and when it came back, it had absolutely no salt or pepper on the squid - absolutely tasteless. Probably the worst squid we've had at any restaurant (we order this every time we eat out). She missed the beer battered fries so they came 3/4 way through our meals and my friend had the ribs but complained that it was dry. My scotch was OK but because it was placed on the fries, these were all soggy by the time I could get to them (please don't put cooked steak on fries ever!!) The pizza was replaced with a full size cheese only at the end of our meal so we pretty much didn't eat anything before leaving. The boneless chicken strips my kids had might as well have been store bought - at $13 for a half dozen we expected more from them. The lighting is poor and we were never checked on during our meals. Really disappointing and am never dining here again. I'm only grateful that I didn't have to pay $128 for our experience - I wouldn't recommend this place for dining to anyone

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.
