Opened in 1996 the Havelock Tavern is one of London's original gastro pubs. Unlike many others that have come and gone since, we have changed very little over that time. Rather than become a restaurant in an old pub building, we focus on being a pub that serves really good food. The atmosphere is lively and informal so that anyone can eat, drink and feel at home. We are not trying to be sophisticated, but aim to provide you with a good, relaxing time. Our customers are a good mix of locals and others who have made the journey to spend an afternoon or evening with us. You are just as likely to see a table of mates catching up over a few pints as a couple tucking in to three courses. We have background music playing just to add to the already vibrant atmosphere.

    Quiet, pleasant spot in a nice neighborhood. The service was quick and the bartender provided helpful insight on drinks and food. The flat iron steak was prepared as requested and the salmon, avocado and mange salsa with chips was quite nice. Very good value for food, drinks, and service.

    Unfortunately we had a table of screeching female Italians at the next table. We were happy to leave - usually its noisey but fine. We're back on Saturday so hopefully the Italians will be eating somewhere else. Also it does not need the music.

    The Sunday roast was amazing. I had the beef roast and my wife had the roast chicken. Both were great! The service and friendliness made the stay worthwhile. Families and children were there as well. A very proper neighborhood pub!

    Booked for lunch while we were at the Ideal Home Show. Good food selection and we enjoyed three courses with wine. Tasty, plentiful and we presented. If we are in the area again, I am sure we will be back here.

    The usual Thursday steak night menu was not available, staff was not as attentive as previous times.
    The Havelock TavernResponded on 7 April 2024
    Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am so sorry the service was not up to our usual standard, I have already addressed this with my team. Due to some operational changes, I have had to put the Thursday Steak night on hold, but I am very pleased to tell you it should be back in about a month. I do hope you will visit us again soon. Thank you so much for your feedback, it is an imperative tool in improving and maintaining our standards. Rob Leader General Manager
