Paddington Inn | Paddington

I normally don’t do pub food – in fact, I rarely step into one, but I’ve been to Paddington Inn a couple of times now. The section of Paddington Inn at the back of the establishment that serves food is more like a bistro rather than a pub. If you are looking for a convenient place in Paddington for lunch after shopping in the morning or just catching up with friends on the weekend, Paddington Inn is a pleasant place to go.  



Location & Ambience

Paddington Inn has modern interiors and nice atrium in the middle of the establishment. There is lots of natural light in the Paddington bistro so quite pleasant to sit around and chillout for awhile.


 

Food

The one thing that stands out in this establishment is the food quality. I had the saffron rice with chorizo, chicken, cod, prawns, mussels, tomato, chilli ($25), which if you like seafood was delicious. The seafood was definitely fresh as there was no fishy smell. It tasted like a seafood paella but texture was closer to a risotto. Nice comfort food for a cold, rainy weekend. 

 

Paddington Inn bistro has a good menu selection but also check out their specials too which is on the board just near the kitchen.

Drinks

Paddington Inn also has an interesting cocktail list. You can choose from:

garden martini
beefeater 24 gin, st germain elderflower liqueur, cloudy apple & lime shaken with dash of egg white

pink paddo lady
belvedere citrus, havana blanco, apricot brandy, guava, cloudy apple & lime juices & passionfruit

blueberry and vanilla mojito
havana especial, blueberry liqueur & citrus shaken with fresh blueberries & vanilla

taking the pisco
stolen white rum, encanto pisco shaken with pineapple juice, lemon & sugar

the beachbum
calle 23 blanco tequila, plymouth gin, yellow chartreuse shaken with passionfruit & lime

Service

Service was no frills. You order and pay at the counter and the food is delivered to your table within a reasonable timeframe.

Overall

Paddington Inn bistro is a great establishment to chillout for a good quality lunch on a weekend after boutique or market shopping in Paddington in the morning. Also check out their website for meal deals (for example, 2 for 1 meals on a Tuesday night).
