We stopped in at the General Havelock Inn on our way to see Hadrian's Wall at the Housesteads Museum.This is an unassuming little inn from the outside but has a lovely ambience inside. We had a delightful Sunday dinner with our daughter, son-in-law, and our 2 y/o grandson. The staff was friendly and accommodating. For starters, we had the melon... More

We were visiting the area and this pub was listed as a Taste Card friendly Pub so we gave it a try. The food was superb and the staff very friendly even although it was Quiz Night and they were very busy.

We visited the General Havelock for Sunday lunch and it was head and shoulders above the other meals we had on our holiday. Had melon with white wine granita for starter - delicious. I had halibut for my main and my partner had roast beef - delicious. Then the trio of home made ice cream for dessert - delicious, and... More

A Belated Birthday treat and What a Treat it Was! On a wet and cold Sunday with the table pre booked we drove the 30 miles to Haydon Bridge. Having done my research via TA we were expecting Good,Locally Sourced Home Cooked Food...We weren't disappointed. Starters-Crayfish Cocktail, Superb, better than the obligatory prawn cocktail. (We saw other guests have the... More

My parents held their golden wedding celebrations here. We had the restaurant booked out it was lovely. I had the roast lamb which was beautifully cooked so tasty, the roast potatoes were enormous which seemed a bit odd but to be honest it really didn't matter as they were delicious! The service was friendly and efficient. We had a lovely... More

This was my second visit to the General Havelock Inn, having called in the week before I and really enjoyed their food and drink I could hardly wait to pay a longer and more considered visit to this absolute gem. The bar area is charming and unspoilt, with plenty of friendly locals, and always an interesting real ale on tap... More

Delicious food, lovely staff and a nice setting with the River Tyne in the background. We used our Tastecard and got a three course Sunday lunch for three for £22. That is an absolute steal.

A bit old fashined but the beer and cider selection is great and the food is just fine-- my wife had fish and I forget what I had but it was just fine. They started dinner service a bit late, 7:00 on a Saturday, but that just meant more time go get a brew or two in. Great town, central... More

The lunch menu has a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts. That, for me, is a very good sign since it indicates that the food is likely to have been cooked to order rather than removed from a packet. There is also a more extensive specials board which contained some mouth watering looking dishes; however we were... More

Sunday evening meal with family in a pub that used to be in Good Food Guide but not anymore. We all enjoyed our food including my veggie brother-in-law, who had a specially concocted champ with asparagus, but we all agreed it was pub grub rather than bistro.

Thank Helene B
