Ten years after the Swan Location 83 (where we are located today) was first allocated to new settlers in 1831, Lionel Samson purchased the title for the grand sum of 10 pounds. Samson began farming the land and it wasn’t long before people started calling it “Samson’s Paddock”.
With the land being perfectly positioned and Samson being quite the entrepreneur, Samson’s Paddock soon became a popular watering hole for both horseman and horse. Whilst their horses rested and took in some water, the men would pop in for a drink before continuing their journey.
Samson’s Paddock is a restaurant and bar located in Mosman Park. Come and join us for seasonal share plates and a refreshing beverage (or two).
We offer a seasonal menu designed to be shared. Sourcing direct from the best available producers to your plate. The menu is balanced with vegetarian dishes and options to suit most dietary requirements. Our dishes are constantly evolving so there is always a reason to pop back in.
Our kitchen team is highly skilled and experienced; and although we are a relaxed, casual dining venue – quality is never comprised and our mission is to make your visit a first class dining experience.
