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.

On a cold wintry afternoon I can definitely recommend The Havelock. The service was second to none the food was delicious and we were constantly asked if we needed anything else. It is difficult to cater for a 14 year old and an 84 year old but this was not an issue as we were all catered for. Empty plates... More

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.

I took my son and young nephew for lunch we just wanted a sandwich which they had a good choice but the price they were charging was ridiculous considering it didn't even come with chips just a few plain crisps very poor value for money won't be rushing back.

We dropped into The Havelock after a walk along the river, only intending to have a sandwich but the food looked great so we both ordered a Sunday roast of lamb. Chicken and beef also available, all at £8.95 kids portion £4.95. It was nearly 3 o clock but still busy. Our drinks order came immediately and the food arrived... More

having just visited as a family of 4 for the first time in a few years, it's still a nice place, in a nice location with nice food, it's a pity the food would have made it so much better, cold plates made the food cold very quick, the pot of tea was only half full, twice, the burger bun... More
