Had a family meal last Tuesday evening and luckily had room for us as lots of tables were reserved (maybe due to quiz night) so I'd recommend booking if you want to eat. It's a cosy, comfy place to be, the staff are very welcoming...More

I have visited the Kelburn Pub a handful of times now and have never been disappointed. They serve upscale pub food that is always beautifully presented and super tasty. It’s clear a lot of care goes into making it. I ordered the steak on one...More

This can be a warm and hospitable haven in the winter and it's a good place to meet up with friends or to while away with a newspaper or magazine. Vegetarians and fans of good coffee should enjoy this spot.

Great service, wonderful beer and the fries are always awesome. Just a quick walk from the top of the cable car. Great shops around too. We love our local :-)

We are never disappointed at Kelburn Village Pub. Food is great; the ceviche in summer and the salmon carpaccio are amazing, the burgers are yummy. The best though is the service. Always considerate and welcoming.

Description
At its heart the Kelburn Village Pub has always been about bringing people from dissimilar backgrounds together in one place where everyone feels at home. In spite of our many differences, we all agree on one important thing – a great meal is a starting point of any meaningful relationship. We don’t believe in holding back just because we are a pub! Whether your preference is a local craft beer to watch the rugby or a first class meal to mark a special occasion, you are certain to find what you’re looking for at the KVP!
