We love coming to the Kentish. It's one of Adelaide's classic Aussie pubs with a contemporary Australian menu and an excellent wine list. The Reserve wine list is definitely worth checking out.

Despite this, noise from band wasn't too bad, service was great, ordered pre dinner drinks and garlic bread for our group which was served very promptly with very helpful waiter who explained some of menu items to us.

A very traditional pub, the ground floor has been well laid out and extends into several different types of venue. There is bar food and on tap beer to the main saloons. The staff on both our visits were very warm, friendly and helpful. There is a large more formal dining room for parties of couples. Then out back not... More

I've been to the Kentish a number of time in recent years. I'm not a regular but it is a spot that I enjoy and it is great to know that you can suggest to friends, interstate visitors, people with high expectations and those who don't eat out much at all, that it is a good place to meet and...

Went to The Kentish 2 nights ago and was really looking forward to some good Gastro Pub food , the menu on the website looked great but to our surprise a lot of the food on the website menu was not on the pub menu . I don't like bagging places but in this day and age service and quality... More

This pub just about has it all (except "pokies" thank goodness). Run by a very knowledgeable and experienced owner who knows how to recruit efficient, friendly staff most of whom would be under 25 (years of age)

I have no idea how this place gets such good reviews. The Schnitzel was caked in a stodgy crust, the coleslaw greasy and the chips and sauce mediocre at best. It's not even cheap. And the lemon cheese cake was greasy. The cups for the tea needed a good scrubbing. Take your hard earned money elsewhere.

I didn't have high expectations after receiving moldy (admittedly complimentary) bread - and they were lessened after the non-plussed response I received from staff. But the chicken parmy I was served was amazing - bacon and provolone on top of chicken is just genius that needs to happen more often. Totally recommended.
