Went there with friends on a Monday evening- expecting pub food- and were very pleasantly surprised to find something rather better. Wine list was reasonably priced and interesting- with a range of styles. Menu was also interesting- from standard fish and chips or schnitzel to delicious home made gnocchi, Atlantic salmon, to grilled prawns with Asian slaw and a really... More

Have been to The Kentish a couple of times on this visit to Adelaide. Last night we shared a fish stew which was delicious - they have lots of choices, staff are really friendly and introduced us to some new gin varieties that we had not tried before. A very nice charming pub.

We had driven past this hotel during previous trips to Adelaide, as we always stay in North Adelaide and it is a brisk walk from our lodgings(Majestic Lion Apartments). We booked a table when we arrived in Adelaide on 30/10 and we looked forward to a good night of decent food and a few hours relaxing after a long day... More

Popped in for dinner on close to 8pm on Saturday night. With 5 friends. We are in our 50s and it was great. We didn't feel out of place. Lots of tables to dine at or bar or lounge on the couches. It was amazing. Fab function space out the back and the good going out there looked amazing. Delicious... More

Stopped in for dinner on a busy Friday night. Got a table near the bar and enjoyed a 400g beef schnitzel. The beef was a little dry but after adding the lovely pepper gravy and the coleslaw it really hit the spot. The service behind the bar was fantastic!!

Wonderful food and service in a great lively pub atmosphere. Looks can be deceptive with this quaint looking pub. It opens up into a series of dining options. Popular with the after work set and functions. Thoroughly recommend it if you are after a great modest price meal with friendly service.

Had lunch here recently with friends and enjoyed it very much. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. The menu wasn't extensive but had all the usual pub fare. Daily specials are also on offer. The wine list was adequate and we all enjoyed our meals. This historic pub is one I will return to. All in all, a pleasant... More

Great place for a casual lunch meeting. The Wine shed was spacious and very warm despite being a cold day. Suspect if the room was full of patrons it may be a little noisier. Has potential for a great private venue. There is a bar set up in there and completely set back from the main pub. We really enjoyed... More
