“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

This place is really good. There Italian food is better than the Italian restaurant next door. There pizza and pasta is amazing. If you go in a Monday or Thursday you can get 2 courses for 2 people from there set menu for £12. There chips are really good as well. Definatly give this place a try.

“lovely pub but poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

had a few average meals at the Havelock lately but decided to stop going after ordering the burger which was very poor with no taste and very thin, and only a handful of chips which was a shame as they were homemade and tasted nice.

This is a fabulous pub, the food is excellent and not too expensive. The service was second to none and to cap it all off excellent wine

“Jewel on our door step”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Having just returned from a holiday in Puerto Banus we arrived home with no food in the house so we decided to go out for early evening supper. Although the Havelock is only about a mile from our house it is not a place I normally frequent.
I had heard rave reviews about their steak stones but the wife myself and my two teenage daughters decided to opt for the minute steaks. At £6 per meal I didn't really know what to expect as I thought the price was quite cheap.
When ordering the food we were informed by a very friendly member of staff that there would be a 20 minute wait. I was tempted to say that the food should only take a minute to cook but refrained as I didn't want to embarrass the daughters.
Unlike Adam B we were kept informed and thats fine so long as you know.
Anyway the steaks arrived after about 15 minutes. Served with a herb butter skinny chips and salad we all found them delicious.
We have been home now 4 days and the 16 year old daughter has asked everyday if she can go back to the Havelock for a minute steak.
I have sampled the same dish at Cafe21 in Fenwicks and must say that the Havelock is just as good if not better and is half the price
Will definitely return in the not too distant future!
