Thank you for your enquiry. The Havelock Restaurant is closed Jan/Feb. So, we do not have a Valentine Menu. Our other hotel, The Bandstand Restaurant will have a Valentine Menu if that is of interest.

Description
The Havelock restaurant décor with it's terracotta colour scheme and tiffany lighting has a warm and welcoming feel. The restaurant serves a la carte British dishes cooked to order using local seasonal produce. The addition of quality bar food - "Slider" burgers, Mexican fajitas and steak sizzle platters - means there is something to tempt all tastes and age groups.
