Visited here several times for drinks, tried the food lately and it was great. Nice atmosphere and even better when the weather is good, option to eat on decking outside. Freshly cooked food, not like the microwave dishes you usually get when trying pub food.

The food is spectacular, portions are just right. Cooked to perfection, highly recommend. The food is simply delicious, really tasty, the ingredients used must be of high quality as each meal tasted stunning.

Decided on lunch at the Havelock after researching on Trip advisor. This place totally deserves it's number 1 rating. Lovely attentive staff and superb food. Medium steak with all the trimmings and butterfly chicken breast with honey, lemon and thyme followed by New York cheesecake and Caramel Apple crumble. You can tell a confident chef when they give you a... More

My family and I have tried many dishes and they are all excellent and well presented. Staff are good, busy and attentative, wide selection... More

Average food, bought in pie not home made. Paid less elsewhere for better quality. Not bad for a quick bite to eat but nothing to shout about

For some reason had never been before. Obviously very popular place to meet up for a range of age groups, which did make for quite a noisy first visit, perhaps shouldn't have chosen an early Friday evening. Feeling very hungry I think we were lucky to get a table as almost all of them were reserved. However although very busy,... More

The refit making the Havelock bigger has been well worth the money. Bright, airy with a spacious feel means you can sit not feeling cramped or overcrowded. Staff couldn't be more helpful, friendly, polite, engaging in conversation. The food is totally delicious, with plenty of choice. The toilets are spotless and roomy. There is a nice sized outdoor space with... More
