Actually I'm now trying to actually bring to mind any pub in Paddington that I actually liked because, once again, this place really didn't seem to do all that much for me. Okay, it isn't one of those really flashy places that you find around here, but rather it is just your stock standard old pub. Okay, I've suggested that I don't like flashy pubs, but I have to say that I'm not a really big fan of these basic standard pubs either. Sure, there might have been a time when I would visit them, but these days it is usually just to step inside, have a beer, look around a bit, get a feel of the place, and then move on to another place. Okay, the staff weren't all that bad, which is a good thing, but then again since there were a list of other places that I wanted to check out, I simply made a note that I'd been here and moved on.
Great location on Oxford street, especially of you are heading to the SFS or SCG. Good range of beer on tap, and food is ok. The thing that really shines at this pub, however, is the exemplary service. The bar girls were always willing to assist and keen to provide service (which is surprisingly rare these days - especially in paddington!!!).
The only good thin I have to say about this place is the bar staff - quite pretty and helpful. But the food is not good at all. I really felt like being naughty so I chose the flathead with chips (beer battered), and the look/taste was fresh from the packet!!! And they charged $20. I won't be going back here in a hurry.
The Light Brigade Hotel boasts what they believe is the biggest TV in Australia which makes it a great bar to watch the Rugby, the AFL or a big boxing bout. If you choose a night where there is a game or a fight on, expect it to be absolutely full of loud sporting fans creating an exciting atmosphere to enjoy. Despite the fact that it is often home to sporting fans, it is not known to be a pub with many incidents of violence. On a typical Saturday night, everyone is there to enjoy themselves rather than get into a fight with a supporter of the other team. The food menu is also fantastic. They have recently included a Chicken Parmigiana which is a popular choice and also do a great Salmon dish for something a bit healthier. There is a TAB for the punters and a separate lounge area for a quiet drink.
