The staff were lovely particularly the man who took our meal order and settled our bill. The atmosphere is good and the place looks very traditional. Meals were ok. Not outstanding but definitely as good as we'd expected. I had hoki fillets and chips. Way too many chips for me to even make a dent in what was served and... More

Always try to have at least one meal here when visiting & working in Havelock. This establishment has been a stable of mine over the past 10 years that I have been coming to Havelock North.

TripAdvisor ratings don't help - this is better than average but I wouldn't say very good (the next rating point). Atmosphere is that of abig modern pub/sports bar.

Good place to catch up with workmates for drinks after work. Offer of hot chips with drinks was a bonus. Mix of seating to suit group gathering.

The main reason to go to the Rose and Shamrock for me, is that they have lots of decent ( English and Irish ) beers on tap. The decor is dark wood and dated and the food is a lot deep fried pub grub....but if you're missing Boddingtons or Guiness, this is a good place to reminisce.

The 80s music and decor inside the pub makes this experience fun! Enjoyed the pub grub and the stout. Mid-range prices
