Originally from Yorkshire, England, Chef Mark Holland (ex-Nomad and The Tilbury Hotel) works in collaboration with owner/chef Matt Moran to present a varied, contemporary menu.
The ambience is cosy and inviting, with booths for a casual bar meal, but if you want something a bit quieter and sophisticated, then the restaurant upstairs is classy, with a mix of wood and concrete wall giving a welcoming feel.
There are plenty of tempting options on offer on the Paddo Inn’s menu. Start off with something from the selection of snacks, raw or small plates and then perhaps look to something more substantial, such as the roasted half chicken. Served with charred corn and tarragon, this is a superb dish, cooked to perfection and super-tasty. Fish and seafood lovers might like to try the salmon cutlet with lemon–butter potatoes or the grilled tiger prawns, while meat lovers might like to try the double lamb chop with raw cauliflower and date salad.
