“Good, honest people and a friendly environment.... plus Kilkenny beer! What more could you ask for?”
Reviewed 9 December 2010

Paddys is a good pub run by a professional couple - Paul & Liz - and provide good pub grub and excellent beers. Compare Paddy's to some other Irish bars in Marlborough(and Christchurch for that matter) and they come out on top.

Keep up the good work!

“Biggest Disappointment ever..”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

Terrible food...extremely average service, dark and dingy. I wouldn't eat here again, even if i was given food vouchers. Small meals for the price. Poorly thrown together, i could do better myself at home.

“Not the friendly Irish Pub we were looking for”
Reviewed 25 November 2009

We went to Paddy Barry's because we were looking for a good old Irish Pub meal. The only other patrons in the place where a bunch of locals playing a strange version of Poker. The staff were not very friendly or welcoming and appeared to be just doing what was necessary. We ordered a meal of fish and chips with salad, just basic pub fare but that was what we felt like eating. Our fish had a very strong freezer burned flavour and was dry and just revolting. The up side was that the beer was cold.
