The Royal Hotel Paddington: Pub grub

  The ultimate pub grub.

The ultimate pub grub.

A 'pub grub' doesn't always mean your run of the mill chicken schnitty and deep fried chips. In the case of The Royal Hotel Paddington — it's much more than that. Setting a new standard for pub meals and offering the luxury of a fine dining experience, I can now safely say that this particular pub grub is definitely a cut above the rest.

The hotel itself has been given a slick makeover, serving up the perfect combination of both indoor and outdoor dining areas. You can sip on a glass of sparkling in The Royal Bar, sit down for a deliciously good-tasting and equally good-looking meal on The Verandah, or lap up the Sydney Harbour view with a cocktail in hand from the Elephant Bar and Rooftop.

Oh and did I mention they do waffle fries? Why waffle fries aren't more common will always be a mystery to me, but I'm just mighty glad that The Royal Hotel Paddington knows where it's at.
