Visited The Havelock Arms yesterday with a friend hoping for a quick bite to eat. Arrived at around 1.30pm, bought our drinks at the bar and found a table in the new conservatory area. After waiting 30 minutes for someone to take our food order I decided to just order our 2 sandwiches at the bar, whilst I was doing... More

A choice of my partners for a lunchtime snack. Was very quiet with only us and another two diners, however the silence was deafining, no music or voices of other customers made the place lack atmosphere. I had to use the disabled toilet which really doubled as a cleaning cupboard. Food was mediocre, home made chips were far too greesy.

Not a 5* restaurant but good food, good price, and excellent service. For such a large group, 16, we did not have to wait for anything. The food was hot, there was no delay in-between courses and the staff were really attentive. Even let us have our own birthday cake as dessert. One minor criticism is the menu did not... More

Everyone elses food looked good and mainly empty plates seemed to be going back, however we had both, unfortunately as it turned out, ordered the same dish,... More

Eaten in most venues in Washington but this is just your standard grub. Not bad service though! Just stick to what you do best!

Came here on a Saturday evening for a meal. Popular bar scene, most people were drinking rather than eating - but menu looked good and great atmosphere. Had the special (peppercorn steak) and while good wasn't anything amazing. Price was excellent and service great but food was just good.

Not that I'm and expert on Thai curry,s but I thought they were quite watery? this one was very dry. Very tasty though, chicken was very tender, overall pretty good but would try something else next time. Staff very good especially the Latvian girl who was very efficient and attentive.

If I want to go out this is my choice. The pasta is amazing and better than the Italians next door. Sweet chilli chicken is another favourite of mine. Always a quick service and friendly. Bit more pricey than some but definitely worth it! No 1 every time!

Had the hot pork bap which was lovely. The chips and gravy were delicious too. They were happy enough to customise a sandwich for a vegetarian. Not bad priced and would return again.
