Pubs & Bars
Paddington, NSW
The most unpretentious pub in Paddington is the Imperial Hotel; this old English pub accompanies its beer with a selection of Thai and Asian food from the bistro. Instead of a bowl of peanuts, a plate of spring rolls is on offer. There is a wide family of imported and local beers and as well as an extensive wine list.

    Once again, the definition of a beer garden has been stretched in this pub. In fact I didn't realise that I have walked into it until I noticed all of the ashtrays on the tables. Basically it is an area of the pub that has a roof that can be opened up, or closed in case of rain, though it never felt like I actually went outside. I quite liked this bar, though the prices were about average. The toilets were a little hard to find, though I did end up seeing the balcony (which is not really an outdoor balcony, it is simply overlooking that room that could be called a beer garden, but I find it really hard to actually say that it is).

    This is an okay pub, it's not bad but it's not amazing either. I've had the pizzas here on their pizza special night, these were tasty. It's particularly good when the sun is out and would say the front bar with the high top tables and TVs are a hit with a group of friends.
  • Came here with friends at the weekend and had a fantastic time! There was a really good buzz, the staff were friendly and food was excellent. We all agreed we'd be back soon. And big thanks to Drew who made us feel very special!

    The Imperial is now one of the better hang outs in Paddo since the latest renovation, its warm and cosy inside, friendly staff, and the pub menu is a winner (although a little $$$ - but this is Paddington). The owner brings all the meat produce from their farm, so its tasty and fresh, and they have 2 homemade relishes that you must try.

    Wednesday meat raffles for only $1 per ticket!!!
  • This place is overrated. It's all about marketing but no substance. Was a morgue when our group arrived and no one was tending the bar. We tried a light bite which was nowhere near size and price comparison of what other local pubs have. They're trying hard but have it all wrong. Great location. Dissapointing.
  • I can't believe how much better this place looks since they renovated the old pub, the place is big, probably the biggest pub in Paddo, decent food here, love the steaks, like the upstairs bar too, this is my local so I'm sure I will be spending a lot of time here.
