Dear Greg, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent dining experience at the London, Paddington. We apologise for any inconveniences caused and appreciate your feedback. I will be sure to pass on your feedback to the kitchen.
I’ve come to the London on many occasions but unfortunately this experience was terrible, I’d made my booking of 10 people in advance and for some reason we’d been put in what could only be described as a greenhouse (it was crazy hot),we spoke to the bar tender about it and after being ill informed about where we could sit we ended up on 2 seperate tables.
The bar tender upstairs saw the whole group looking at menus and when we went up to the bar to order was only then told at 3:05pm that after 3pm we could only order burgers or pizza. If we’d known that we would have ordered 10 minutes earlier, lack of communication wasn’t great, my burger wasn’t much to right home about either, mainly as I’d been fancying a steak all day.
I would recommend the London, I’ve probably been a dozen times in the last year, the bartender just seemed to lack people skills or awareness
Dear Dave, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent dining experience at the London Paddington. We appreciate your feedback. I will be sure to pass on your comments to the team and we will take on board your points. Our kitchen has religiously been closed between 3-5pm as the staff need a break between lunch and dinner, sorry for any inconveniences caused by this policy! We look forwards to hopefully welcoming you back to the venue again soon!
The food was absolutely terrible, dominos pizza would’ve been a better option, the gluten-free pizza was among one of the worst pizzas I have ever eaten (ceoliac), my partners chilli-chicken was not much better. The host, some of the waiters and bartenders were relatively pleasant, except for one lady who just seemed to not want to be there.. but the food really just ruined our night
Hi Chloe, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent dining experience at the London, Paddington. We have never had a problem before with the gluten free products but will be sure to undertake a quality review in the aftermath of your experiences at the venue.
For our event (son's birthday) The London was the perfect venue.
Thank you Tim! We are so glad to hear that your son's birthday was a success at the London. We look forwards to warmly welcoming you back again soon 🤩
Always enjoy going to The London for a good meal.
Easy getting drinks from the bar and the food, especially the steak is done to perfection together with a generous serving of fries and salad. Good value for what you get.
Booking a table on line was easy and the staff though very young are friendly and fairly attentive.
Great atmosphere and a quiet location off the main road.
Can highly recommend The London.
Thank you for the thoughtful feedback! We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your steak, the atmosphere and the staff at the London, Paddington. We look forwards to warmly welcoming you back again soon 🤩😁

We had a lunch for my hubby’s 50th. The staff were so helpful, the food was great, it was quiet but it was still a great vibe, we were really happy and would go back for sure.
Thanks guys my hubby had a great birthday
Good feel, relaxed, great corner bar to watch the people traffic. Very enjoyable

Been going for years and always love it
All 3 pizza ordered were terrible and mainly left as none of us liked them at all !
There was a mix up with our reservation but to our surprise the London team remained professional and accomodating. They you were gracious and obliging. Best regards Mona and Tony Groser
Thank you for the positive feeback Mona and Tony, we really appreciate it! We look forwards to having you back at the London Paddington soon 💙🙌
Ordered the prawn salad, which was tasty, but for $29 it’s a tiny portion size, more like a very expensive starter. When I got home I needed to have another small meal as was still hungry (and I’m not a big eater/person).
Note that dogs are no longer allowed. Apparently Woollahra council changed the rules. The London were really great changing our table so we could be near the door to keep an eye on our pooch which was appreciated.
Thank you for your constructive feedback Kimberley. We apologise for your unsatisfactory experience with the Prawn Salad. I will be sure to pass this information to the chef so that we can make changes in the future. We are glad to head that you were happy sitting near your dog at the window! It is a nice way to still come to the pub with your pooch 😊
Great place for a lovely meal and catch up with friends!
Thank you for the positive feedback Cherie, we look forwards to having you back at the London Paddington soon 🙌💛
Always a lovely pub to visit, friendly staff and a good food menu, coupled with them keeping with current covid restrictions lead to a nice night. Would love to see it packed again but it was nice nonetheless!
Hi Matt, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad you were able to join us for some great food and enjoyed your night. We can't wait to welcome you back again soon.
Nice bar staff - very service oriented. Nice food, well priced and well prepared. A genuine, happy, 'local' pub experience. We will be back.
Always a fun time at the London. Love your specials.
Thank you Coleen for your positive feedback, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our daily specials. We look forwards to seeing you in the London Paddington soon!
Quiet and relaxing, food was good, friendly service.
Thank you Donna, we are glad you enjoyed your visit to The London. We hope to see you again soon for another delicious meal!
A quiet little pub post COVID makes it the ideal location for a Sunday night out.
Thank you so much for your positive words. We are so glad we can keep the community spirit alive through these difficult times! We hope to see you again soon.
Standard pub grub. Would love more veggie / healthy options.
Great location, great pub, great food. At this strange time in the world they practiced safe hygiene measures & social distancing, which was reassuring. Just one negative was the noise level. The music & ambient noise made conversation difficult....but then, I'm a middle-aged man & my hearing ain't what it used to be, so take that with a grain of salt.
Hi Andrew, thank you for your positive feedback. We have tried our hardest to comply with hygiene practice in these strange times. Thank you for appreciating it! We apologise about the loud noise and will try and work on this in the future. We look forwards to seeing you at the London Paddington again soon!
Best sunday roast we've all had in a long time! Only rhing id improve is a mocktail list for my pregnant friend
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your Sunday Roast Cloda, thank you for the positive feedback. We will be sure to work on our Mocktail list, thank you for that recommendation. We apologise if this caused any issue for your time at the London We look forwards to seeing you again soon!
Great space lovely service from gentleman at the door.
Thanks for the great feedback Kate! We look forward to seeing you at The London again soon.
Always a fun night at The London.
Great food, great drinks and great company.
Hi teeny, thanks for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon :)
Excellent service, food was of the usual high standard. It was good to be back!
It was the perfect place for a casual little party, good food and drinks, great location and the staff were so friendly and accomodating.
Hi Renae, Thank-you for the feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon for your next Function!
Hands down the best roast in Sydney! Portion sizes are generous, yorkshire puddings large and home made, crispy roast potatoes and delicious pork crackling.
Hi Liz, thank-you for your feedback! We're glad to hear the Sunday Roast hit the spot. We look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon
Yes, if they were up for a very noisy bar/restaurant. They did turn the rugby league on the TV down in the dining room when I asked. Its all self service, but the staff are very friendly and even though it was packed you didnt have to queue too much. Very noisy space though - not great for an intimate dinner with friends.
This is the second time we have been here. The first time was lovely. Great food and service. This time was not great. The not enough staff and the food was not as good as last time. Over all very poor second visit. Which is sad as we were looking forward to dinner due to the great time we had previously.
Love East London! Always fabulous food, service and atmosphere.
Exceptional staff serving well executed Asian food. Absolutely would recommend dining here.
Great night, as always! Awesome waiter, yum food and a very good wine recommendation!
This restaurant is very close to where we live, I wanted it to be good. The dumplings were delicious, the bang bang chicken I would not have again , but the crispy chicken was good. The place was very empty for a Saturday night, then we found out there was a football game on. Staff were in go slow mood and I had to ask for obvious things several times. All up Id go back.
Its a local gem in heart of Paddington. Food is delicious and well presented. Portions are enough for 4 to share. Staff are good especially Taylor the manger. Exceptionally polite and helpful every time we've been there.
Our only complaint is the music! Its awful and doesn't fit the ambience and style of the place. Its OK for the pub downstairs.
Definitely will continue to go to East London and for us its a quick walk home! Perfect
Food here was delicious, so many flavours & very tasty. Really enjoyed all dishes we ordered. Bill at end was expensive but for a special occasion its a great night out.
Service was average. Took a while to take orders and forgot one of them, which they took of the bill when we asked about it. Delicious cocktails & nice range of gins. Food was good, but not amazing. Good place for sharing food in a group
Really relaxed vibe that was welcoming without being overbearing. The atmosphere was great for a Tuesday night, few other tables around. Very casual dining with a menu designed for sharing. We really enjoyed getting a few dishes to share and trying new things. If I had to find an issue, the skirt steak could've been cut a bit smaller or served with a knife. However that is trivial as food and service were overall fantastic. We'll be back soon!
2nd Visit to East London with both visits being great evenings with nice food and good wine selections. Very casual which is always nice too.
