Mistook the street for a restaurant one street over. But was in the door by then, and was both hungry and thirsty. Good range of beers. The food is Ok, pub food. Good service with bubbly staff.

Good pub food. Service good. Ambience in "Irish Pub" setting is excellent. Can be busy at peak times.

Great pub with great atmosphere - very popular but you can not make reservations so be early!! Friendly staff - good menu choices - servings a bit on the large size. Prices reasonable. Like all pubs can be noisy. Children welcome.

Family pub - they encourage you to bring the kids - food is pub food - but it's good. There is a large number of beers from all over the world - but Murphy's Red (Irish ale) is my favourite. Pretty good value overall

Had lunch here with friends upon recommendation of our guides from Bay Tours and Charters. We all really enjoyed it; food excellent, especially the Hearty Beef & Guiness pie, which was delicious. Others had the same. And fish and chips. I found a new beer, for me, Tui Dark. Excellent staff, very clean and comfortable.

Where else in the Bay would you find Fullers London Pride and other fine tap bitters, than in this pleasant faux traditional English/Irish, Havelock North watering hole? Served a little too chilled for the British palate, but that is sadly universal down this end of the world. The standard, reasonably priced pub food complements the extensive range of drinks on...

Recently had a great family lunch at the Rose and Shamrock. Can recommend the Guiness pie it was great tasting and good value for money. They have plenty of things for the kids to play with.

Nothing to write home about, pretty average pub fare at a reasonable price, pub service (not quite up to restaurant), couldn't remember anything to memorable. Good atmosphere which might pull me back for a drink but wouldn't seek it out specifically for somewhere to eat.

I mean it was so big juicy and tender that it took a long time to finish. Washed down with a nice wee HB Syrah. The facilities reminded me of when I was 15 I went on my first OE to Woodford, Queensland. The old Woodford pub was exactly like this. Quaint is an understatement, dark wooden floors, walls and...
