From the outside, The Heron looks like the sort of pub that doesn’t so much indulge in lock-ins as live by them. It’s a wide bungalow-like spot in Paddington that’s full of football, fellas, and fantastic Thai food downstairs. The restaurant space is the budget karaoke room of your birthday dreams. It’s a not often seen combination of pink walls, neon lights, and TVs flashing lyrics, combined with food that will blow your socks off. If it sounds slightly bizarre, that’s because it is. If it sounds brilliant, that’s also because it is.
