Leeroy Petersen’s new bar, The Village Inn, is open


The renovations are complete on Leeroy Petersen’s pub. What was once the Irish pub, Durty Nelly’s, in Paddington, has undergone a transformation and opens today as The Village Inn.

The venue has been made over from top to bottom, but they’ve kept some of the character that Durty Nelly’s had acquired over the years.

“When I purchased the site in 2013, my dream was to reclaim the heritage of Paddington Village by opening some cool new venues, but still retaining that old world charm,” said Petersen.

The aim here is to provide a meeting place for the locals, and to that end they’re serving up honest pub food — classified on the menu as the Usual Suspects — and Petersen’s own Koby Burger, named for his son.


“We have created an inviting space where discerning Paddo drinkers and diners can settle in and get comfortable,” he said.

The colonial feel to the pub now ties in well with the upstairs bar Petersen launched last year, The Print Room.

The Village Inn is located at 9-11 Glenmore Road, Paddington NSW 2021 and is open for lunch and dinner 12pm until late.
