Kiplings is a comfortable laid-back Irish pub in the heart of Brattleboro. It is cozy and friendly with a casual tasty menu. We enjoyed relaxing among the locals and felt welcomed. The Patty Melt was delicious! Cash only.

I don't drink, but I frequent Kiplings. The burgers are the best in town, bar none. The chili Cheese burger is the best of the bunch. Im pretty picky about rueben sandwiches, having lived in NYC for 25 yrs, but Kip's holds up their end of the bargain. On top of all this the fries are phenomenal! One thing to... More

I could say many wonderful things about Kipling's, or I could say nothing at all and just keep my joyful praise to myself. Much of my attachment to this place revolves around its sentimental place in my heart, but so much more is based on legitimate merits. The tap beer selection is reliably good, and the mixed drinks are reliably... More

Very personable owner. Great chille, and my husband said the Reuben was the best he'd ever eaten. Only "dislike" is the benches are on the short side with not much room between them and the table.

Great friendly staff however the food was terrible. Chicken wings looked like they went through the meat grinder - pieces of bone chips. Fish and chips were awful. Thin, overcooked in old oil. French fries soggy. Beers were small. CASH ONLY, so obviously owners are avoiding taxes or too cheap to pay 2% credit card fee. I would never go... More

Got a couple of beers at the bar. Music was a little bland. People were nice enough. Looks like it has a following of people who don;t want to go to McNeil's which is right next door. My wife had a Guinness. Sometimes there is music in the corner.

We needed to kill some time until we could get into our B&B and we stopped in here for a drink. You cannot believe how hard it was to find a place open at 3:30 for a beer. The bartender was really nice and gave us the lay of the land and referred us to some great spots in town.... More

I was traveling through VT with family to see the beautiful colors and around lunchtime we were in the Brattleboro area so I went to my trusty tripadvisor to pick a spot for a bite. This place looked good and was super easy to find (it is one of the few that also shows up on googlemaps). Two of us... More

Kipling's is a comfortable bar with booths, a good beer selection, good bar food. The bartender is intelligent and friendly, and the owners are gracious. A good value, and open from lunchtime on. Not open Sunday.
