I went here with a friend for a low key birthday dinner. The meal was so casual and the girls really enjoyed their platter to share. Thank you Tanya for taking extra care of me and my crew 😉😊

We went out for a few drinks. My friends had eaten before I got there and the portion sizes were generous. The service was good, but the music wasn't great. However have heard good things about it, so maybe it was just a quiet night.

Good service and pleasant place for family get together. Had pizza which was well received by all. No issues that I would be concerned with.

Hi nzweekender. Thanks for visiting our bar/restaurant. The courtyard is one of our biggest draw factors in the summer. You should see the fire places in the winter! Hope to see you again sometime.

On a hot Sunday lunchtime we were looking for somewhere of quality and reasonably quiet to have a leisurely lunch. Quite by chance we spotted this establishment down a side street and thought it might be what we were looking for. Quiet? Yes. We walked...More

Great bar restaurant, nice outdoor area. Menu ok and varied but service disappointing. Really let the place down. Staff seemed unhappy and even surly behind the bar. Will still come back tho, but hope it's better next time.

Description
Havelock North's most popular bar!

Loading Ramp is a bar/restaurant located in the heart of Havelock North. The design is based around the classic Kiwi Sheep Shearing Woolshed. The interior design contains old-school farming elements such as old 'wool-presses' and large wooden floorboards and is kept up to date with funky wallpaper and bright-bold upholstery.

The kitchen has an a la carte menu which is updated regularly. Our mains and desserts are cooked and prepared gastro style.

Loading Ramp becomes a late-night venue on saturday evenings with a local DJ from 10pm till 3am.
