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.

    This place is a gem. I’ve been back and back again every time I’m in this part of town, it’s always great beer and food.

    A really pretty garden at the back with a lovely atmosphere. Friendly service but had to wait nearly 2 hours for main courses to be served. The food was good (roast lamb) with the exception of the fish (fish and chips) which was tiny with a lot of grey fish skin in batter which was so overdone at the ends, it was inedible. Would still visit again but will be mindful of what I order.

    Thank you very much for your review and feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your visit and once again my apologies for the wait on the food as I explained on the day we did have a shortage of staff in the kitchen team. I have taken your comments of the fish and chips on board and passed them on to my chef, we normally receive such positive feedback on our Fish & chips. I do look forward to seeing you again soon Best wishes Rob Leader General Manager

    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.

    Really impressed with the quick service. We have ben recently when service has been very slow which is difficult at lunchtime. And the food was very good.

    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.
