About Us - The Lord Dudley

Old English Style Pub

The Lord Dudley Hotel nestled among the leafy eastern suburbs in Paddington is one of Sydney’s oldest, most beloved and renowned English pubs. It has been an institution to loyal locals, tourists and passers-by alike for over 35 years since Jamie Couche restored it to the English glory days of Britannia where Branston pickles accompanied pork pies and Pints of beer slapped against polished wooden bars

The Lord Dudley throughout the decades

Family Run

Unlike no other, The Lord Dudley is still family run. There won’t be any plastic schooner glasses nor will you be herded into a line to order a beer or a meal. Walk in from the street into the ivy covered red-bricked English pub and be embraced by the personal touch and unique experience the Lord Dudley has to offer and have a bloody pint! You might even run into one of the Couche sisters Honor and Claire who now manage the pub together.

'There's not many other pubs around like ours anymore, we’re one of the only pubs in Sydney that’s not run by a group and that’s very unique'
