The Kingston Hotel is a comfy old pub in a quiet section of Highett Street in Richmond. A real locals haunt, this gastropub dishes up great food to a fairly well-behaved (read: older patrons welcome) crowd in a welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere. There are several dining/drinking options, with a front bar area that's great for groups, the main restaurant section, and a beer garden for the warmer months. The staff are very friendly and always try and accommodate you, even on Wednesday nights when the hungry hordes descend for – we're calling it – one of the best steak nights in town. Make sure you book in advance!
