Relaxed and great for friends or either family to go at any time. Nice outdoor place to sit in the sun right next to the river.

We thought we'd try somewhere new this week and decided on the Havelock Arms. I was very impressed right from the off as it's in a lovely position next to the river and when we were shown to our seats we had a lovely view of Penshaw Monument. All the staff there were very friendly and the actual dining room... More

Went for a Saturday girls night and had the chilli prawns for starter and the steak stone with chips for main. Gorgeous food, good service, busy atmosphere, value for money and decent wine.

Called in for a late lunch about 3pm in early December and ordered a Calzone Pizza with a good choice of fillings and thoroughly enjoyed it, followed by a very nice coffee. It was one of the nicest Calzones I have ever had. Will call in again sometime in the future.
