London Tavern
Best selection of scotch we've seen

Underwood Street, Padington
(02) 9331 3200

More pubs in Paddington >>

Situated in one of paddington's quiter streets, this little gem of a pub has been serving up great beer and great scotch since 1875. Back then it was frequented by soldiers from the Victoria Barracks, who I assume were gagging for a decent taste of genuine scotch. Nowadays it's a plush, well kept pub which retains a distinctly british feel. The selection at the bar reflects this - Guinness, Old Speckled Hen, Boddingtons, Newcastle Brown - and the aforementioned scotch selection.

The main bar is a cosy affair, carpeted and with plenty of wooden fittings adding to the warmth. the seating is tall round tables and stools, and you can get a surprising number of punters in on a good night. UK sporting memorabilia peppers the walls.

Attached to the London is a superb Bistro restaurant, the prices are high, but the food is excellent. There's also a bar menu serving the usual in Paddington-style fayre at decent prices.

Oh, and let's not forget, this place sells Hoegaarden (wonderful Belgian white beer), so how could it fail to gain a five-star rating?

Definately one of the better beer selections in the eastern suburbs. Good British ales and Aussie boutique beers (Little Creatures, Matilda Bay Premium). Well run.
