“Great food and beer!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

I ate here one night when staying locally and was impressed by the selection on the menu. The food was well presented, reasonably priced and very tasty.

I tried three different beers - all brewed in New Zealand - and found the bar staff to be helpful and knowledgeable.

I have dropped one star on The Kingslander because there was a salsa dance class when I was there which was great during the class but the music was far too loud afterwards. Other than that, an all round great pub.

“Average lunch with the family.”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Table for 7 with the option of breakfast and lunch menus. The staff couldn't explain some of the differences in them.
The meals were enjoyed by all but those there wouldn't make the effort to go back there again. So al in all an average lunch.

“Good place to go for a drink”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

Nice place to catch up with friends in Kingsland, especially after work hours when everything else around it seems to be closed already. Been there a few times and staff are always friendly.
