Still best value for money

Ever changing menu, large, small & childrens portions, all very generous. Huge drinks list both alcoholic & non, staff who smile at you & treat you as a friend, plenty of parking. Decor is Irish of course but tasteful. All price are very competitive. The butter chicken was to die for.

Good simple pub food. But more importantly they serve beer !!! Not the usual tasteless fizzy lager that every bar in New Zealand serves, but proper beer. Not only that but Fuller's London Pride !!!! And the pub quiz is worth a try.

Enjoyed a family dinner here with excellent food, draught beers and wines. Pleased to discover Fullers London Pride and London Porter a long way from Chiswick! Clearly a popular spot in Havelock North - food portions are hearty and tasty - beef and guinness pies with a shamrock in the pastry were a highlight. Arrive early if you want to... More

Popped in here for a pint of Guinness and to watch the cricket before dinner. Friendly staff, even brought my pint over once it had settled, it was packed with every table full of diners. Next time I pass through will be eating here!!!!!

First visit and really liked the atmosphere and decor. A good range of beers. The food was so disappointing.. The lamb chops were tough. The rest of the group had seafood which was all of the packet variety, though the prices charged did not reflect this. Would visit again, but only for a drink

Popped in for the afternoon to watch some sport... had a great fews hours. Excellent range of beer - a lot on tap; food was very good for the environment. Friendly staff on the bar. Nice mix or patrons - OK for kids right thru to the older set.

The Rose and Shamrock is a great "English" pub in the heart of Havelock North. With a huge selection of on-tap beers and a wonderful selection of great pub-grub food, This place always seems busy with locals and visitors alike by the looks of things which is a great sign for any village pub. Another great aspect of their beer... More
