3.5 stars. Delicious chips. Much better than a pub menu and good wine selection. Cosy when it's cold.

Wow this place was packed to the rafters at 6pm on a Friday night. Everyone was there for food. We had the chicken burgers which a bit over priced at $22. The chips were over cooked oven chips and the burger was pretty ordinary. However...More

Description
The Kelburn Village Pub is a traditional Kiwi pub. We have a relaxed atmosphere that is friendly to children and families. We also offer live music and coverage of sporting events. In addition, we have a dining area that offers Tapas, Mains, and Desserts. We are always changing and improving our menu. We have recently added some authentic Mexican Tapas. Most of our regulars regard the KVP as a second home!
