Formerly Bridie O'Reilly's

Another one of those pubs where everybody goes, Paddy's is a large Irish pub near the Haymarket. It's situation is such that it grabs in a lot of tourist traffic, as well as a lot of Sydneysiders, especially during the summer months.

Consisting of, essentially, two bars - a saloon style front room with island bar and stools, and a back room with booths and tables, Bridies will suit a lot of people. There's an outdoor area next to the tramline, and a 'pseudo-outdoor' area undercover in the adjacent shopping center should it happen to rain.

There's usually fierce competition for tramside seating during the summer months, so if you intend to stay, get there reasonably early or settle for an indoor seat.

Food's good and normally served fairly quickly (service via pager - don't expect table service!) - it's all honest solid pub fayre, nothing fancy to pander to the yuppies.

Craig from Sydney
Typically packed and over-priced Irish theme bar with bullys in suits manning the doors in the evenings and weasily bar managers who don't even look old enough to drink. We had a perfectly nice evening ruined by attempting to go for a drink here I was asked to leave by a neanderthal bouncer for making the simple mistake of taking the time to say hello to him as a friend and I looked for the people we were supposed to be meeting. We'd been in the place for less than a minute. He wouldn't tell me why he wanted me to leave, then he refused to let me get my wife, who was in the lounge bar with another friend, and his limited grasp of logic and the English language led to him physically threatening me when I asked him how I was supposed to let my friends know I'd been thrown out. People like that should not be allowed out in public. To have them put in a position where they are allowed to bully and threaten innocent bystanders is nothing short of criminal, but of course, when we complained to the bar manager he was clearly so intimidated by this thug that he was probably frightened he'd be in line for a punch if he sided with us. Do yourselves a favour, and just don't go there.

The Munster burger is much better than the McDonald's version... Go figure!

Nice laid back pub, great meeting pace for friends. Foods pretty good and the outdoor tables next to the trams are great during the afternoon/early evening.
