Leave the kids at home and come along to the fabulous Lord Dudley Hotel for a great night out!
Our Evening Venue: The Lord Dudley Hotel is an English pub with a modern Australian restaurant in Sydney’s beautiful and historic Paddington area. Located in a residential area parking is also better! It is just a 10-minute drive east from the city or a 10-minute walk from Oxford Street or Edgecliff train station.
The Lord Dudley Hotel restaurant serves lunch and dinner seven days with a seasonal menu which changes daily. Their kitchen has a seasonal menu that sources quality produce, putting a twist on homey English style fare with a bit of a modern twist.
At Mama Creatives we have organised an amazing year of evening talks, morning tea masterclass, expert panels, creative family school holiday workshops and more - we can't wait to see you!
