Large potted plants climb the aged brick walls of the Lord Dudley in Paddington. Like many faithful patrons, these curious clinging vines seem itching to get inside the locally renowned British-style pub. Cuddly lovebirds prove that home is where the hearth is as they sink into chubby couches next to the fire. During the week sprightly congregations of retirees set up shop for traditional pub lunches. The place is a homey assortment of spaces and enclaves, and true to its snug cottage-like design aesthetic, the bar is happily wedged between the front area and a narrow corridor. The Lord Dudley's crowded charm has lodged itself in the hearts of many picky eastern suburbs punters.

A tapering staircase leads down into the busy restaurant, which is split into two dining rooms (and moods). The greenhouse-inspired ‘Garden Restaurant' offers natural light, exposed brick walls and a collection of plants worthy of Backyard Blitz. The ‘Bordello' is a darker, slinkier space featuring a whimsical aquarium on one wall and a big screen plasma screen on the other, only switched on in case of sporting emergencies (which happen astonishingly often). The delicious blackboard menu changes daily and is a real indulgence for those who love genuine British pub fare. The beef thyme and vegetable pie goes down a treat in the winter months, and the rib-eye steak is a perpetual favourite with the boys. Crumbed brains and bacon do well with the offal-inclined, and a crisp plate of fish and chips is a year round winner. If in search of a terrific pub meal served with a cosy dose of local character, you can count on these experienced publicans to serve up dishes fit for a Lord.
