Good for a quick drink and nothing else. Food very overpriced and quality not of equal standard. More of a workers pub scene not a dining bar scene

Good honest meals and a good bar, but book on busy weekends when all the tourists come up from the mainland.

Service as really good both at our table and at the bar. They had a good choice of beers on tap. The live music was... More

The food was sensational, I have special dietary needs and the chef had a great understanding of what I could eat. There was live music and the atmosphere was sensational. I will be taking my hubby there for a meal and would highly... More

Chips and Gravy is essential eating at certain points in your day/week/life and Kelly's doesn't disappoint. Their own version of this delicacy arrives in a large plate to share (or not) and is indeed exactly what the title describes ... it's pretty fabulous. Heads up if you're on a budget: don't expect much change out of $20 for this gourmet... More

Dropped in here for a drink and a snack, the service was fantastic and very welcoming, food was of excellent quality and the beer was just how it should be "icy cold'. Keep up the great work guys.
