Great place to eat for decent pub grub. Staff were excellent. Terrible venue and nice atmosphere.
Price was decent also as we had a main each and dessert. Would recommend this place over all the other pub food places in Invercargill

Had 2 fillet steak meals and chocolate fondant meals. The steak was one of most expensive meals on menu but DEFINITELY worth it. Didn't need salt was beautifully cooked flavorsome and tender.
Highly recommend.

I love the kilns desserts which are half price on sunday and monday. The Creme Brulee is very good. So dessert and coffee is $10.45, great for the budget ( and it means you only have to eat one helping now the whole thing if you made it your self)

I had reasonable expectations of the Kiln as a staple Invercargill pub grub venue. My entree didn't disappoint the Arancini rice balls were to die for. This was in total contrast to the calamari (an entree which I chose as a main). The calamari was rubbery, the coating was floury and soggy and such a disappointment compared to the starter. What a pity. The others in the group also experienced mixed results with ups to the oysters and a steak meal that was overcooked. Consistency in meals would appear to be something to strive for - it was almost as if there was a good and bad chef in the kitchen?
On a positive note the front line staff were great.
