Amazing Steak!

Decided on the steak on a stone, a first for me. We didn't wait long at all despite being busy. Our steaks came with home made chips, asparagus & a big mushroom & a choice of 3 sauces/dips. All beautifully presented but the steak was something else. As it is served on a hot stone each bite can be... read more

Great Lunch, great service, overall great. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the Sunday Lunch was. It is relatively straight forward to do a Sunday lunch but the quality at the Havelock was very good. We were a family group of 10 and the service was top notch, well done. We will return for more Sunday lunches I am... More

I went for lunch today and being coeliac asked about gluten free meals. To my astonishment I was told they didn't do any gluten free. The assistant was curt with no apology. Perhaps they only do ready meals! Any 'chef' can do gluten free even if it's a limited choice. I haven't come across this attitude for a long time.... More

Came here for lunch to celebrate a works birthday. The service here is always pleasant and friendly. From 10 people we ordered 8 different meals. There was plenty to choose from. I liked it that the chicken dishes came with salad or veg or chips. I like to keep lunch light and just steal a few chips from someone else.... More

What a lovely pub. Enjoyed Sunday lunch here and midweek meals. Such a nice place to meet and their extended restaurant area is beautiful. Really friendly staff and a fantastic drinks range 😆

We ordered our drinks and food. Food for nice and the service was good. Unfortunately when the bill came I was charged for a pint of beer and I had a pint of shandy. When I discussed this with the manager he said unfortunately there is no shandy price and you will be charged for a pint of beer. I... More

After receiving extremely poor customer service here on a previous visit I was dubious about eating here again. I'm glad I did. The service was much better (thankfully a different server) and my mam, dad, boyfriend and myself all throughly enjoyed our food, coffee and cake today. Chips are probably the best in Washington.
