Catch Up With Friends

Wanted a cool place to have a cold drink with friends on a very hot day. Typical dark interior that was a pleasant change from being outside in the heat. Service efficient and the Pimms Cocktail was refreshing. As there were a few of us it was nice to find a table in the corner to relax and catch... read more

This Irish pub in the heart of Havelock North is full of great food and a huge range of beers on tap(30+) lots of great craft brews available too. Amazing homestyle meals with all the extras, friendly staff and a good time to be had by all. Get in here!

An English style pub in NZ. It has about +20 beers on tap and a wide selection of wines. Food is delicious and the portions are generous. The staff were very knowledgable and helpful and the sport on the 3 TVs wasn't on loud. Good spot for a pint and a pie.

We've been there couple times. The meal is great, especially Stacks. Beer and cocktails are good. Meals and drinks are affordable with good quality. The environment is nice with beautiful wooden design and old pictures. My first preference when I go to Havelock.
