On the more expensive side as far as pub meals go but the open fire and the service made it all worthwhile. Great night.

Have always loved the Kingston Hotel and have been going here before the
football for a number of years, however, the prices have gone up so much for
what I consider to be regular pub food (which is all we're looking for) and we'll
now be returning to the Prince Patrick where the prices are more relevant for
the same type of fare.

We have been to the Kingston numerous times in the past but we’re surprised to find the meals had all gone up in price by about $10 per meal. In the past our meals ranged in price from $16 to $26 but this time meals started at about $29 for the pie!

No longer an inexpensive night out & the meals weren’t any better than before so they were well over priced!

Soooo overpriced for pub meals. I’ve been a regular for 25 years & sad to see the price hike for meals that are pub meals. 😞

Food was great and the beer garden is fabulous. Service was a little slow but there was an impromptu 21st and the staff were chasing their tails a bit. Otherwise excellent.
A great place to keep secret from the masses

I booked a table a week in advance but when we got there the was no table reserved. The guy at the bar pointed at a table inside and said you can have that on.
We wanted to sit outside but he said there was no tables available.
My my husband & I decided to look around outside while our guests sat at the table. We saw 2 tables available and and asked a waiter who was walking pass if we could have 1 of the tables? He said he’ll check if they are available and went inside and came back and told us both the tables were available and we can decide which one we wanted. It a good start as it was our first time there and it was my husband’s birthday. We ordered 2 wines ,a beer and a soft drink as I was driving. The wines came straight away but no sign of the beer & lemon lime & bitters. After waiting for about 7-8 minutes I stopped a waitress walking pass to ask for our drinks. Not a good start. I have to admit the food was excellent. Enjoyed our meal and the setting outside was lovely.

We had a great time at the Kingo. I brought my dog with me - the staff were so accommodating when he sprawled out in the back courtyard and the waiters all kindly worked around him. Delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. The menu is extensive and caters well for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. A real neighbourhood gem.

Great to be there again but the food was average at best and not much of it. Very pricey.
Could be a Covid thing so happy to support them, but maybe not for lunch again.

Steak night at The KIngston is iconic , so no need to rave about it , unless you are not a local. A couple of small niggles:- No French or seeded mustard , only hot English . The staff were mostly new and were not familiar with the new way of doing things. Training would probably help. We each had a beer , which was fully priced, and the value adds with red wine was not explained.

Lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The bar had run out of basics and the staff couldn't name any beverages they had in stock. Food and drinks we didn't order repeatedly came over to our table. Dietary requirements were not met and staff didn't compensate any of the mistakes. Guy behind the bar couldn't be bothered calculating the total price of meals and asked if we could. Really disappointed, wouldn't recommend.
