We were at Kelburn Pub on Saturday evening and whilst the Pub was busy, with all the tables full and lots of people in the bar, we were well looked after. We started with the Garlic Bread, which was hot and had just the right amount of butter. For mains I had the fish of the day – pan fried Tarakihi served with a pea mash, potatoes and fennel. My friend had the couscous salad – which was beautifully presented. Both dishes were very good and I would definably order them again. The cheese board with a soft brie and a tasty cheddar served with walnuts, a paste and gherkins was a great way to finish the meal.

We had a really perfect evening dining here with our out of town guest. The service was friendly and professional and the food amazing! Would definitely recommend it and will be back for sure. Go for the market fish or the sirloin both of which were cooked perfectly. Do you know that momentary sadness that comes over you when you are coming to the end of a perfect dish?...we didn’t want in to end!

We had a very nice meal at this restaurant...the menu was varied and the service was very timely for our concert booking pressure.

We (family of four) all enjoyed our meal at the Kelburn Village Pub.
The Tapas were excellent and the venison fettucini main was very good.
We didn't stay for dessert as it was getting very busy being a rugby test night.
Sinead (hope I got the name right) was really helpful.

During our short stay as visitors to Wellington we made a decision on an otherwise cold and wet Sunday afternoon to make a booking through first table at the Kelburn village hotel. After a wet, chilly but picturesque trek up the hill, we arrived to a cosy environment and a warm welcome by the hotel staff. We nestled in with a pint of craft beer, and on completion were shown to our table. On viewing the menu we found the choice both varied and pleasing. We found all the dishes we ordered were cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Our decision on the night was 10/10. A special mention to the beef fillet with truffled potato croquettes, melt in the mouth perfection.

The Steak sandwiches was simple a bread roll, with some pieces of steak and a few diced mushrooms.

But worse was to come; my daughter discovered a big bit of plastic in her pancakes. And when I reported it to the chef had to ask if she should continue eating it ('no' was the answer). And finally - some 20 min later - I had to ask when he replacement meal was going to come. 'We didnt think you wanted one' was the reply. What the hell?! In what world is it OK to leave a kid with a meal that had foreign objects in it to continue eating it.

Don't dine here. Ever.

This was a lovely venue and the food was just as lovely. Only disappointment was that there was not enough of the beef to go around those in our group who wanted to order it. As we were dining early in the evening I would have expected enough portions of selections on the menu to be available to diners.

Disappointing. We arrived 10 mins early as we had a booking and was told that they were not opened yet and to wait outside. It would've been nice to have been offered a seat to sit inside until it officially opened as it was cold outside. Most the meals were very salty. The rice risotto was luke-warm and salty. The chicken dish was lovely though. My daughter did not like the hamburger, took a couple of bites and didn't eat it. We would not dine here again as we did not feel welcomed when we arrived and the food was average.

I booked in using the generous First Table offer. Staff could not have been more helpful and considerate. My friends organised a birthday cake for dessert, and the Kelburn Village Pub produced the most devine Tiramasu cake. Nice friendly atmosphere, and really enjoyed the fact that it wasn't very noisy and one could easily follow the conversation. Will be back.

What a great little pub! Food was fantastic. I can safely say I had one of the best steaks I've had in Wellington. The wait staff were amazing and provided great suggestions for food allergy requirements.
Good wine selection also.
All round great atmosphere, service and food.
Will be back for sure.

Since we started our first table experience (we’ve been to a few restaurants) we have been so disappointed with our food!! When we left KVP we were full from the 3 courses we ordered. The food was amazing, the service was perfect (thank you server) the atmosphere was chill. Everything about your place was on point.
We definitely will be dining with you again

This pub is really buzzing on a Friday so don't expect a quiet intimate dinner. Parking can also be a little tricky so allow plenty of time to find a park. However once you are seated with a menu in hand, things get infinitely better. The truffle marscapone is to die for. I am told the chef is Italian. If true, this is reflected in the menu, with the fettucine and the mediterranean beef salad (both delizioso) and the hazelnut pannacotta (divino) as well as that marscapone on ciabatta which was, for me, the highlight of the evening. Molto bello!

Lively atmosphere, great table service, food was great except for the chicken burger (tiny piece of chicken, not much else inside and way too much tomato sauce). Wished I had gone for the beef burger like the rest of my table which they loved. Calamari was also much enjoyed.
