More standard pub fare. All done reasonably well and not expensive. Grab some drinks from the bar as well.

I came here to catch up with s friend over lunch. Luckily it wasn't that busy as there was only 1 staff serving, but she was friendly and helpful when I had questions with the menu. The table section has table service but when a couple sat right next to us in a empty restaurant we decided to move to... More

great location and good face lift but the staff need to remember that they are they to help out the clients not to socialise and check themselves out in mirrors. Eye contact seems to be an allergy for them

Good pub food for locals and visors who happen to be in the area - we really like it - however I wouldn't make a trek to come here for the food.

A delightful old Sydney pub (built in 1888) in the middle of Paddington at Five Ways. The real point of this establishment is the first floor verandah overlooking Five Ways, Paddington and the city beyond. Good pub food and one of the more charming places to spend a warm Sydney evening.

This is basically an English style pub venue with reliable good pub grub (steak, bangers n mash, fish n chips etc). The location is good, and the rooftop is cool however its slightly pricey for all the above. Only buy beers from the ground floor - they are twice the price on the other floors which I find ridiculous. Good... More
