    Happy with The Kent - the menu was varied enough and we really enjoyed the quality of the food. Staff were very helpful. The area was clean and spacious, hand sanitiser was available. Thanks for a lovely night.

    Despite receiving confirmation emails from The Fork, and responding to confirm that we would be attending, the first of our party of 10 arrive was advised that they could not find our booking. Fortunately they were able to arrange a table for us, but not sure what would have happened if they were busier on the day. Food was OK, service good.

    I've been a patron of The Kent for over 20 years. The service is good, food varies from very good to mediocre. Tonight the fish and chips were overcooked. The salad was small. My friend's chicken schnitzel was tasty, but the side of coleslaw was just shredded red cabbage with dressing. That was disappointing. Dessert at $14 for 3 small albeit delicious donuts, was expensive. Used to be served with a scoop of ice cream, but tonight, a tiny amount of custard - size of 5 cents.

    Excellent gastro pub in lovely part of Carlton. Good service and food. Good wine list. Open bar and eating area quite noisy however. Kid friendly

    This place really has the "feel" of a good local pub, but it has restaurant quality food. Perfect for our relaxed late Sunday afternoon sojourn. We were looked after immediately and throughout our stay enjoyed great service. Specials were explained concisely and clearly. Importantly for our party we found we could easily hear one another. Best of all- the food was excellent.

    Fabulous service, very friendly, attentive and accommodating to our group. Food was tasty, fairly standard pub fare but not overly exciting. Kids menu and colouring went down a treat but meal was was simple and small for the price. Was great for a group as it wasn't too crowded and the dining area is spacious.

    It was a lovely pleasant atmosphere with a varied menu that catered to our different tastes. The meals were prepared well and served at the same time so the whole table ate together. We felt comfortable and relaxed enjoying conversation and lingering over lunch.
