Found this on TripAdvisor as it was nearby to where we were staying. Lovely little gastro pub, was empty when we arrived early in the evening. Good selection of drinks and food. I had the Pork Buns to start which were amazing! My dad had the scallops. Nice sized for starters. Then we both went for the lamb shank for... More

Great place to eat! Well portioned and delicious meals for a very reasonable price. Three well sized courses for less than $60, you don't find that all that often. We recommend the pork bun starter. Service was prompt and friendly. Ice buckets could be provided with bottles of wine though. Nevertheless, we'll most definitely be back!

Another visit, and still superb even at the busy end of year. Staff pleasant & helpful. Food of good quality & value especially for the price. Great if you're on a budget with $20 mains.

Recently we revisited Paddington Arms with a family group and were really pleased with the ambiance of the restaurant, the quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the reasonable pricing.

We have been touring NZ and thought a cheaper meal was an option tonight. Unfortunately, the quality matched the price ... good, but not great. In the end, however, it didn't finish all that much cheaper than the "better" restaurants. Everything was okay ... that's all.

Meal: We were in for Fathers Day and were given the option of tomato soup or seafood chowder for the entree, any roast, and your pick of the dessert trolley. The Seafood Chowder was delicious, along with freshly baked bread, this, on its own, will get me back here. The roast pork and vege was standard, and the desserts were... More

An excellent little restaurant/bar. Had some surprisingly spectacular food, more than you'd expect for the $20 price tag, well done
