First time eating at the Shamrock with my friends and had great service. The staff was very attentive to my group and I and offered great knowledge of the area and things to do. The food is very good, the chorizo, tomato, mushroom and parmesan 'Pasta of the Day' was delicious and a large portion for the price you pay.... More

Great selection of beers on tap and a central location, but the food was just dire. Overcooked chicken that had the texture of leather and soggy chips. Never again.

Often pop in for a quick meal, good range of items on menu and a selection of daily specials. Staff are always friendly and a good choice of wine and beers available. Large meals are huge, they do have some small meals available.

What a fab pub to visit. Feels like you're sitting in a village somewhere in Ireland having a pint or a pimms. The meals are solid and hearty but make sure you have an appetite as they a big. Great value for money and excellent service.

This is a very authentic feeling pub with great beer. The food lets it down a bit by just being deep fried stuff pretty much. Always busy though!

If you want a pub lunch, and friendly, helpful staff you should try the Rose and Shamrock. In summer cool in winter a roaring fire. Recently went for my husbands birthday with family. We had the steak, a curry, nacho's and a platter at the start and nothing at the end. Despite its large capacity the nooks and layout makes... More

Called as it was only place open on bank holiday food ok but nothing spectacular, air conditioning was too cold even for a couple of brits. One thing I did not like they asked to keep my credit card until we finished so that we did not do a runner,won't be going back.

First time eating out in Havelock North food was fantastic and staff made us feel very welcome. When we went looking for another place to eat a day later nothing came close to Rose and Shamrock so we went back and were not disappointed, food was amazing with super fast service.
