Name your poison... Whether it's fashion, food, fine wines, beers or cocktails in a freshly revamped space, the Paddington Inn has it all. Except for pokies. And that's just the way regulars and newcomers to Sydney's best boutique pub like it.

Located at the Oxford Street end of the fashionable William Street enclave which is home to some of Sydney's best boutiques, the Paddington Inn let's you create your own experience thanks to a range of spaces over two levels. 

Whether you stake out a spot in the two spacious ground floor bars with a variety of custom-designed seating, a smoker-friendly outdoor area, upstairs terrace and private booths, the vibe is sleek and modern without sacrificing the warmth and ease of an historic pub.

Reviews of Paddington Inn

  • The Paddington Inn has recently undergone a bit of a facelift. Well, lets face it, everyone likes to keep themselves tidy. And really, who wants to age gracefully? (Hint: not me!) Its not just the exterior thats had a rejuvenationthe food has too.

    You see, I like to consider myself a bit of a Calamari Fritti Connoisseur so when I saw Calamari Fritti with Oregano Salt on the menu it was a no brainer. Along with the Stuffed Goats Cheese Zucchini Flowers, we were in heaven. The fritti was light, buttery and melt-in-the-mouth. The stuffed flowers were rich with the signature sharpness of the cheese cutting through the oiliness. Decadent is an understatement.

    Lets just say, those new years resolutions were temporarily put on hold. (Needless to say we demolished them.) The mains, were good honest pub fare, done well. I had the Salmon Fillet special while my journo friend had the Prawn Linguine. The serving sizes were generous and I really struggled to finish mineand thats saying something!

    Dessert was a little bit of a let downonly because we didnt get any! Unfortunately for us (but not our waistlines) they had sold out. So, if you manage to get to The Paddington Inn make sure you try out the Chocolate Fondant and report back. Actually, while those new years resolutions are on hold maybe I can still squeeze one in #reviewtowin

    Having been disappointed with the first couple of pubs that I visited when wondering around Paddington, it was good to finally come across one that I liked (though that was bound to happen sooner or later). There are a mix of beers on tap (ranging from select craft beers to your standard fare I only ever drink tap beers at pubs) and the prices for a feed are around average. What I really liked about this pub was the courtyard in the middle which had a stairway leading up to a quiet balcony where I could sit in peace and read my book.
  • I usually hang out here because is so close to my work.
    I went there on Thursday 29th May around 12pm (they usually open at this time). I tried to open the door but it was closed. Staff inside was too busy changing channels on TV and completely ignored us. Finally staff opened the door and behaved like staff wasn't getting paid to do the job.
    Finally we got in after the staff's arrogant welcome (as if staff even said hello to us for a courtesy).
    NBA game was on and we requested them if they could change it to ESPN, and staff pretended to help us. After few seconds of channel changing staff decided to give up and said "I don't know how to set ESPN"
    We were surprised that how hard it was to change it to ESPN.
    We requested the staff to ask a colleague (who was standing at the bar) but somehow staff already knew that the colleague doesn't know either (without even asking )
    We were like what's going on. Looked like paddo inn was not paying them enough to do their job properly. They looked completely reluctant to even apologise for not even knowing how to change channels. They completely decided not to care anything and just stood their like a manikin.
    Anyway we decided to leave and hopefully not going there again. Good luck paddo inn. Renovation will not make you better. You need to renovate your customer service especially when there are dozens of pubs around you.

    I wish no luck to your business.

  • Great local pub for a beer and the food is always top notch.

    Its had a renovation this week, and I like what they have done with the place, but still the crowd just isn't there. And the front section is too 'pubby'.
    The back section is where its at, the new menu is quite good, with specials on every night. Wednesday is Paella night, and out of the 5 that ate it, 5 all agreed it was delish.

    Love this place. Friendly staff, great drinks (including the price). Great vibe!
  • Great food and good atmosphere. Recommend the steaks.
  • Their Rib Eye Fillet is five star and will only set you back $20 and keeps locals coming back.
  • Went after Good Vibes 2008 and it was crankin!

    staff are good and guys are hot :)
  • Great location for a refreshing drink on Oxford streets shopping strip. Food is great as well.
