Father Paddy's Irish Pub

  • British, Irish

Essential Information

435 Main St.
Woodland, CA 95695

Patrick “Father Paddy” Redmond opened his eponymous pub in May 2016 in downtown Woodland’s historic 1903 bank building. The kitchen, helmed by chef Justin Severson, offers up tried-and-true Irish comfort foods like fish ’n’ chips, flaky beer-battered cod with house-made chips (double-fried for perfect crispness), corned beef and cabbage (reinterpreted as a sandwich with spicy mustard on grilled marble rye bread) and Irish stew with Guinness-braised beef, served with traditional soda bread baked in-house. Don’t skip the bacon mac and cheese, a sharp, gooey blend of Jarlsberg, Comté and aged white cheddar, melted down with Murphy’s Irish red ale and spiced up with cayenne pepper. And after tipping back a pint from one of the 16 taps at the U-shaped, hand-stamped copper bar, wander into the former bank vault-turned-whiskey room, where Father Paddy may impart some whiskey knowledge over a tasting.
