“Typical Irish pub hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

You can usually always count on a comfy drink and meal in this type of pub. Nice comfy decor as expected from your typical Irish pub. Clean and reasonable prices. Nice food almost anytime of the day and cosy snugs for a drink with friends. Easy to find in the village.

“Very popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

You know when somewhere is good when you walk in and it's full on a Monday. Good food, international as well as NZ beers and wines. Very pleasant surprise.

“Authentic Irish Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Rose and Shamrock Irish Pub in Havelock North is a beautifully decorated, authentic Irish Pub with a great atmosphere and ambience. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is great, varied and reasonably priced. It is a wonderful place to meet with friends, have a good meal, a few drinks and a lot of fun. It can be as peaceful or as rowdy as you like, with lots of 'nooks and crannies' to hide away.
Well worth the visit.

“Good Beer Poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Atmosphere and beers are top notch. Food on the other hand is very poor. All deep fried or cooked beyond taste.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Two weeks ago the four of us had a wonderful meal.
This weekend they returned with their friends and requested we have dinner back at this restaurant.
As usual the place was full, but the service and food was excellent.
A very enjoyable time was had by all.
Thank you staff.
