my hubby and I just went to Kelly's. We loved the look of the place....very rustic old pub style. The waitresses were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. We had the eye filket steak with vegies......omg it was amazing...steak cooked to perfection, we couldn't get enough. Would very highly recommend. Would go there AGAIN AND AGAIN.

The food was good Had a lovely warm fire on a cold night but unfortunately there was a strange smell when we arrived reminiscent of sewerage. We ate and left soon after shame but so good to get outside into fresh air.
