I've visited this pub twice after taking visitors to the fort at Housesteads, and both times the weather has been nice enough to make use of the main attraction- the great outdoor space overlooking the river!
The sandwiches are excellent- freshly made and very nicely presented with a lovely salad and the beer selection is great too. They make use of local breweries- even for the gin! While the food was being prepared its lovely to sit out back enjoying a pint watching the world go by. It really is a great outdoor space-- they have a covered area too and heat lamps so I imagine it would be well used at nightime too.

Had lunch here on 8.8.12 we were a party of four. All freshly prepared, good quality at a fair price. Puddings very good. Good selection of beer including locally brewed. Outdoor seating with river views. Would be happy to return.

The General Havlock is a real surprise package. From the outside it looks like a fairly standard village pub. But it has a very pleasant interior and a beautiful sitting out area on the riverside (reached through the door at the back of the dining room) where meals and drinks are served when the weather is suitable. Not to be missed. The food is good value and of a very acceptable standard and they always have a good selection of excellent real ales on tap.

The owners are friendly and helpful and overall it is a joy to visit. Strongly recommended and a pity that more people do not seem to be aware what a gem it is.

The General Havelock Inn was chosen because it was handy to our accommodation, but it did not disappoint in any way. The food was enjoyable and good value for money. The staff was friendly and efficient. Would eat there again if we are ever in the vicinity of Haydon Bridge.
