Great little stop for a beer or a nice rustic meal. Always has a range of live entertainment. Seating options inside and out. Great place to sit by the fire on a winter night!

went with other couple, four of us dined for dinner, very old tables and rundown chairs and cutlery etc. Not much service, wait staff slow to come to take orders and it wasn't even busy. Meals here are typical chicken parma and nachos stuff, my husband ordered the special gourmet pie from the blackboard, it was just a round dish... More

This is THE pub in the hills. Everything about the decor, atmosphere, music and clientele is fantastic and then you throw in the big surprise of truly consistently excellent food. What a gem in the hills!

Great food, service, cocktails and entertainment! My husband and I took our 9 month old and they were able to cater to her needs with a highchair and a meal she could eat (finger food). The food tasted great and they were able to cater for me with my food allergies. Fast service and friendly staff. Live bands!

We had a catch up with friends at Kelly's and were sitting outside. It was nice weather and the room inside looked to dark to me, you don't want to sit there when sun is shining. Service was good, meals came fast. They have beautiful range of beers if you beer lover.i had a lamb shank in red wine sauce... More

We dropped in the other night for coffee/hot chocolate & dessert. The staff were welcoming & helpful. We choose hot chocolate fudge cake, hot chocolate & a mocha. The fudge cake was yum but came in such a tiny dish. A bit overpriced $12.90. Overall, it's a friendly place that has a pub feel wuth patrons sitting outside drinking &... More

I've been to Kelly's on a number of occasions over many years but on this recent visit the service was the worst I've experienced anywhere in quite some time. Our order was taken promptly and drinks arrived in good time. 20-25 minutes after we ordered - and with others coming in after us, ordering and receiving their large meals -... More

Love this little place. It has wonderful character and the food is of a high standard. The table service is great (instead of having to order at the bar like other taverns/bars). I ordered the Putang and it was just what the doctor ordered...I felt like licking the plate clean. This place has great rustic charm and fair whilst also... More
